Trivantis Lectora Publisher and Inspire
Bytes People Solutions is the reseller of the international award winning content development tool Lectora from Trivantis. Lectora enables instructional designers to create engaging e-learning content, rapidly.
Lectora Publisher is the basic e-learning software provided by Trivantis to create e-learning lessons. Our customers also have the opportunity to purchase an expanded e-learning suite called Lectora Inspire that provides the functionality of Lectora Publisher but that is also bundled with three additional e-learning content development tools, namely:
- Flypaper: allowing non-Adobe Flash developers to develop Flash content without knowledge of action script. Flypaper enables this mainly through pre-created templates and flash objects for which the developer just needs to change parameters and variables.
- Snagit: Screen capturing and image editing tool.
- Camtasia: Screen recording and movie editing tool, enabling the developer to create or edit MP4 movie content.
Lectora is used to create online training courses, assessments, and presentations. It is also used for the conversion of Microsoft PowerPoint presentations into elearning content.
Content developed with Lectora authoring software can be published to a variety of outputs such as HTML 5, Single File Executable, and CD-ROM. Lectora content is compliant with elearning industry standards, such as SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) and AICC (Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee) and TinCan. Content created in Lectora can also meet 508 Compliance standards. In addition, Lectora is compatible with any standards-based learning management system (LMS) on the market.
Lectora provides single-click publishing to Web-ready dynamic HTML, CD, single file executable, SCORM, and AICC learning standards without the need for programming knowledge. Lectora includes an internal content management system that makes course creation easy for the average computer user.
Rapid elearning development as well as collaboration between subject matter expert and instructional designer are achieved through the ability to import PowerPoint presentations into Lectora which can immediately be converted to SCORM or AICC to be tracked on an LMS. Lectora further enables collaboration between an SME and the instructional designer (or between a team of instructional designers responsible for elearning development) through a cloud-based solution called ReviewLink. ReviewLink makes it possible to publish content to a secure cloud environment where it can be reviewed and commented on by subject matter experts or other instructional designers. There is no additional cost related to this.
