What Makes the Best Authoring Tool?

The most effective implementation of microlearning encapsulates the use of a good authoring tool. We’ve compiled the five major attributes of the best authoring tool for the integration of microlearning into your training strategy. 

Designing aesthetic, engaging and effective microlessons for employee training has been made easy with EdApp’s state-of-art authoring tool. Our template-driven and interactive authoring tool gives you access to an entire library filled with responsive templates to help you achieve your learning objective.

Here are the 5 best features unique to EdApp’s rapid authoring tool.

1.  Clear Path for the Achievement of Learning Objectives

A good authoring tool provides a clear map of objectives for employees to follow throughout in the achievement of corporate goals. Specifying learning objectives is worthwhile for employees and your enterprise when considering the most suitable authoring tool. It must cater to the needs and preferences of employees in order to motivate them and provide them with a sense of support. When learners feel supported and valued by authoritative figures, desired outcomes are more likely to be achieved, further contributing to the overall establishment of objectives.

2. Effective Design Features and Templates

A major differentiator in terms of the effectiveness of authoring tools is its aesthetic and functionality. EdApp’s authoring tool provides users with access to a vast library of extraordinary templates, making your job easier and more effective. The content-importing process is made simple by our templates, taking minutes or hours to create an entire microlesson, instead of days or weeks.

3. The Benefits of a Rapid Authoring Tool

Rapid authoring tools provide easy access to course content through a cloud-delivery system. Our delivery system means that edited and updated content is instantaneously accessible for learners. Developing lessons from a central system allows employees to have continual access to content whether they are in the office or on-the-go.

4. The Utilisation of Interactivity and Gamification

The use of gamification in employee training boosts productivity, as well as instilling a sense of intrinsic motivation in employees to compete against colleagues. Real-life prizes can also be won in the concept of gamification, providing extrinsic motivation, where learners are able to win vouchers and other prizes.

5. Used in Various Stages of Employment

The creation of microlessons with a good authoring tool is not only used in the onboarding process, but also for ongoing training. This means that employees continue to learn from microlearning modules, meaning the use of authoring tools remain relevant and necessary for the development of critical skills and competencies in employees. The importance of ongoing training extends into the overall success of the company, due to employees being able to fulfil and exceed expectations within their respective roles.
