SkillGate | About Us - A little more info about SkillGate


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. SmartCafĂ©)
  • online Tutorials
  • Coaching sessions
  • Certificated Programmes
  • SmartProjects (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;

  • for all or selected groups within a Skillgate LMS
  • on third party LMSs using XST
  • or sold via public access

Features List

As well as being a robust, stand alone system, SmartAuthor integrates with all SkillGate products to support a blended training approach.
