EdApp’s new authoring tool update is rolling out

EdApp’s integrated rapid authoring tool enables both experts and novices to create highly-engaging courseware using a huge library of interactive and gamified microlearning templates. Now it’s getting a major update.

Some users will have been using the new features as part of our Beta version over the past few months. But over the coming weeks, everyone will be moved on to it. The good news is that there are no confusing, operational changes: you don’t have to re-learn how to use the authoring tool. All new features are overlayed onto the existing, award-winning layout.

Most improvements appear behind the scenes and improve performance and reliability. These include the implementation of web technologies such as React and Redux to make authoring smoother. They’ll also allow us to add new features and updates more-frequently, moving forward.

The key usability features that will help with the day-to-day authoring of courses include:

1. Undo and Redo

One of the most-underrated features in editing is now available in EdApp. The new undo and redo feature means history management is greatly enhanced.
