SmartAuthor Features List

SmartAuthor is SkillGate's integrated training authoring suite.

At the touch of a few buttons, SmartAuthor lets subject matter experts create:

  • SmartBites and SmartFeeds (e.g. SmartCafé)
  • online Tutorials
  • Coaching sessions
  • Certificated Programmes
  • Projects (blended courses)

Authors can also upload and integrate third party SCORM courses into the Academy10 library or add SCORM elements to SmartAuthor Programmes.

SmartAuthor is 'object based' meaning that, not only is is quick to use, it is also easy to copy objects. Editing existing courses or creating group specific content is a piece of cake.

SmartAuthor suite allows Authors to support delegates on their programmes in real-time. The manager suite, for example, shows delegate progress; provides up to the minute score statistics; allows assignments marking and practicals asssessment; and forum management.

Online courses built with SmartAuthor can be used on third party LMSs.
