List Of Authoring Tools: Part 3

List Of Authoring Tools: 37 eLearning Authoring Tools

A few months ago I begun a broad research to create the Ultimate List of Authoring Tools. The results of my research are:

If you know an authoring tool that is not included in the list I will highly appreciate if you leave a comment with a link!

  3. myUdutu Course Authoring Tool
    Udutu is not a software company, it is a service company. We recognized that budgets, personnel resources and shifting priorities can stall a worthwhile online course project for months or even years. Licensed Desktop tools get limited to a few "technical" experts, and leave subject matter experts, project managers, and other stakeholders out of the loop. So we make the authoring tool available to anyone and everyone, and because it is online, stakeholders can collaborate from anywhere, on any platform or operating system, so long as they have a browser.
