E-learning development technologies are constantly evolving. Every year, several new authoring tools are released into the market, and 2016 was no exception. Many developers of rapid authoring software have released new products and upgraded their existing tools to meet the changing needs of the technology-enabled learning marketplace, during the course of the year.

I have worked on several authoring tools. Today, I am sharing my views on 4 widely used tools -Articulate Storyline, Lectora Inspire, Adobe Captivate and Flash.
Storyline has an interface which is very similar to PowerPoint, and this makes it very easy to work with this tool. We can work with this tool very effectively, if we have basic knowledge of triggers.
According to a survey conducted by the eLearning guild, in 2013, Adobe Captivate was the most widely used rapid authoring tool. The latest version of this incredible tool, Adobe Captivate 8 can be used to develop responsive eLearning courses. Apart from, this, we can convert existing PowerPoint presentations in to eLearning courses by importing them into Adobe Captivate. Let see the step-by-step procedure to convert PowerPoint presentations into eLearning courses.
A fact about eLearning is that it is cost efficient and can be developed within budgets without losing its gist.

However, there are times when you are blessed with more than enough and actually find yourself with a substantial amount of money left at the end of the quarter or a fiscal year.
