Training Material


I works for a large company with training teams in several sites across the country. I've been tasked with providing a standard format for training material, be it systems or 'soft skills' training. We currently use different software packages depending on the site , i.e IMI and MS Word. Does anyone know of a software package that would be useful? Any ideas welcome!

  1. look at
    have a look at Lectora, its a very versatile piece of software and easy to use. Netg are making their off the shelf packages to be customisable with it. sold and supported in the uk by Trainer1

  2. Much maligned PowerPoint
    I have designed and produced training packs for delivery in multiple sites, Powerpoint allowed me to produce a single file for display and printing as delegates packs by using notes pages. For the TTT notes, I send to Word, produce a table page layout which shows the relevant thumbnail of the slide and lets you add notes for the trainers only. Contact me if you want to ask more about how….

  3. offer easy to use vendor independant tools th
    EDITOR creates courses and tests. Easy to use, free evaluation downloadable; output conforms Scorm 1.2 AICC etc. Publish as free-standing for standard browser access, as CBT or LMS modules or through free special elearning interface browser. Includes templates and wizards for typical course elements plus importing objects (Flash etc) and repurposing traditional materials (Word etc). POWERSYNC converts PowerPoint presentations to Flash and publishes as standards-conformant elearning (SMIL/SCORM etc). Also optimises graphics/media objects. TRACKER is small footprint application that enables progress and performance tracking. Supports branches and mix of online/offline/remote working with auto collect and consolidate data. Includes reporting facilities so you may not need LMS – but can export data to LMS if you prefer.
    TUTOR is application designed for classroom/blended learning support.
    I’d recommend these products for situations where ease of use, low tech support overhead, conformance to standards and flexibility of auto handling distributed learner base were required.
    I’ve been doing some work with these products and can give advice (free) if you want to look at configuration options.

  4. Try quasar
    I received a presentation from an IT company called quasar – their package takes different word documents and collates them with ease into a handout or trainers notes booklet with little fuss. Contact Michael Shane on 01923 650 365 or [email protected] for a demo

  5. You could try AuthorIT
    I use the AuthorIT software to compile our software’s help files and also use it for all course manuals.

    The software is a single source database so can be very helpful when creating versions/updates of guides as the library contains all topics/images/links etc…
    Also you don’t need to worry about layout, formatting etc as everything is based on a templates.

    You can publish your documenation as various different types incl Word and I beleive that they are looking at including PDF.

    We started off using the trial version then upgraded. Have a look at:
