Roles and Rights System

More information
Roles and rights system

With our proven roles and rights system, each project member gets access to the tool features they need for their role. Unnecessary features that are not required or desired for a role are hidden. This provides a clear focus and purpose for each role, as well as restricting access to features that could create unwanted changes. The predefined roles and rights groups can also be supplemented with individual settings at any time.

Concurrent working

The locking function prevents more than one person from working on the same page at the same time. This way, changes are not unintentionally overwritten – and every team member can see and preview the latest project changes.

Content Creation

Stansardised DesignDesign

More information
Standardised design

Our professional course and page templates guarantee you not only consistent graphic design, but also the basis for best practice instructional design. Of course, templates can be customised to your corporate identity and instructional design specifications . Brand-specific layout variants can also be implemented and, if necessary, applied with a single click.

Intuitive working

More information
Intuitive working

Different interfaces support you from the start of content creation to the publication of your courses. In this way, even with just the minimum of training, users can create sophisticated learning content without any knowledge of programming.

Device preview

More information
Device preview

Use the preview function, which displays your current, fully functional course page in a new browser window. Instant preview of your learning content means you can always be able to quickly check how it will be displayed on your learners’ devices.

Review mode

Using test mode, you can easily and quickly take your created learning content through a review process.

Interactive Learning Sequences

Presentations

More information
Automated presentations

Use the animation editor to show and hide individual presentation elements to create complex sequenced and animated instructional sequences. In this way, you can introduce interesting content into a topic and vividly illustrate the learning material. Our linking of the timing of individual text, image and sound files is particularly smart: If the course is translated into another language and new sound files have different durations then the linked animations are automatically adjusted. This means that manual readjustment of timings is not necessary.

Z

Exercise Types

More information
Exercise types with customisable feedback

Choose from a variety of different exercise types, such as single choice, multiple choice, drag & drop, or cloze, and link exercises together. Support and encourage your learners with customised feedback for each individual response and improve learning outcomes. It is also possible to script and program customized exercises and interactions.

Integration of Media

More information
Easy media integration

All media in a project is available online using the file manager to all project team members. Use the file manager to upload your multimedia files, such as audio, video or image files via drag & drop to a project for use within your e-learning courses. Access-restricted folders also guarantee secure data exchange.

Screen & Audio Recording

More information
Screen/Audio Recording

Screen or audio recording allows you to record your screen, webcam and/or voice for use directly in your courses.

Action Elements

More information
Action Elements for more interactivity and immersion

Increase the attention span of learners by using 3D objects, 360° images and videos or turntables. VR objects create a sense of immersion in the learning experience. The learning material can be experienced more directly through interaction than through purely passive consumption content.
The combination or virtual objects and environments with different types of exercises such as hotspots allows the learner to interact and so improves learning.

Test Scenarios

u

Random selection

More information
Randomly selected questions

The questions are drawn randomly from a pools. The order in which answer options are presented is randomised. If desired, settings can be customised.

d

Answer in any order

More information
Non-linear test questions

Contrary to the usual approach in e-learning you can also provide users access to all questions without having to answer them in a set sequence.
Learners can then first look at all the questions and work through the test in an efficient way to maximise their performance – focusing on what they know. Once all questions are answered, the test can be submitted for evaluation.

i

Multiple test pools

More information
Create multiple test pools

Questions for a particular assessment can be drawn from several test pools. The number of questions desired from each pool can be set – e.g. ten questions from pool A, two questions from pool B, etc … Using pool questions grades and question weightings can be scaled to alter assessment difficulty.
Why use different test pools?
By using different test pools, you can arrange your questions in terms of topics, chapters or difficulty and define the number of questions from each pool. Mandatory questions could, for example, be grouped together in a pool. This way you can ensure that all mandatory questions appear on the test.

P

Practice tests

More information
Assessments with lookup functionality

For tests, we can also provide functions that enable learners to look up further information.
This way, you can give your learner tips, link to pages in the course, or provide additional content from which the learner can derive the answers. With the latter option and the appropriate learning management system, you can use learner analytics to measure how effective your content is at transferring knowledge.

International Use

v

Language Nodes

More information
Language nodes

Language nodes switch certain properties (e.g. text and sound) of objects language-dependently. In this way, all languages are conveniently managed in just one instance of a course.
Use the XLIFF import/export to translate your texts or recording scripts quickly and easily. The translations are automatically inserted in the correct places in the course – special features in the typeface are supported thanks to UTF 8 and 16 encoding.

Translate Mode

More information
Project overview – translation mode

In smaller projects you can directly translate your course into another language using the translation mode.
If you have imported completed translations into your project via XLIFF, you can use the translation mode for your quality assurance, e.g. to improve or adjust wording in context.

Localisation

More information
Smart Localisation

Each project can contain multiple courses. Localised copies of courses in a project can be linked to the original project. In this way, changes in the original are automatically maintained in all the linked content.
