How We Use Content
Octivo works with a range of Authoring Tools to meet our client needs. At the present time no one authoring tool is perfect for all situations and clients.
What is an Authoring Tool
An authoring tool is a platform or piece of software that is used to design and build an eLearning course and usually outputs it as either a SCORM or xAPI learning object, or as a HTML5 web learning object.
The choice of which authoring tool to use is complex. In some cases, it is determined by the client already using a particular tool. In others, it is the characteristics of the eLearning to be produced that drives us to a particular solution.
As well the common ones of Articulate Storyline 360 and RISE 360, Adobe Captivate, Evolve and Adapt, we also have our own Octivo Authoring Tool (OAT) that is perfect for mobile-first learning design. OAT is constantly evolving to support AR/VR learning and new forms of interaction. We also author within the LMS, such as Moodle or Canvas, and we use H5P.
Let’s look in a little more detail at each solution.
