Stuck for an e-learning solution


I am in the process of evaluating various e-learning packages with a view to finding a tool that will allow us to self author e-learning modules.
We have decided that simulation of our bespoke software and capturing participation and scoring data is key; on top of the usual content creation capability.
We do not use an LMS and are looking for a package initially that will let us capture information into a database without buying into a full LMS.
One of the tools I tried performed very well apart from simulation which failed to capture our bespoke software.
Has anyone else been in this situation? Did you find a full solution in one package or did you mix and match with a separate content creation tool and separate simulation tool?
Any advice gratefully recieved!

  1. Mixed approach
    Generally I find that using a combination of solutions provides varied and interesting learning as long as it all links into the same system/standards. We tend to use a mixture of flash (and RoboDemo) based simulations and our web based LCMS which allows self-authoring.
    We have found that many companies do not want to commit to buying a full LMS/LCMS so we offer a per user licence off our servers.

    I hope this helps a bit.


  2. A recommendation
    There is a solution on the market which will enable you to create custom e-learning and also create simulations for systems training. Details are:

    You’d need to speak to Andy Green. Hope this helps.

  3. E-learning solution
    Contact Nick at Progress International ( as they have a package that may suit your needs.


  4. Talk to Cleartick
    Before you make any decisions I would strongly recommend you talk to Cleartick ( Craig Worcester, one of their directors has a huge amount of experience in this field, and can advise you on the various tools available. His telephone number is 01434 381136.
