Discover what an authoring tool is and how it can help you.

What Is An Authoring Tool?

An authoring tool is a program that allows you to use pre-programmed elements to create multimedia software and content. Translated into simpler terms; authoring tools let you create resources you can use. For example, e-learning authoring tools allow you to create digital learning content either as shareable PowerPoint presentations or via learning games.

How Does Adeptly’s Authoring Tool Work?

Adeptly’s authoring tool lets you build a journey for your learner, in the format of a game. Using pre-simulated worlds, simply add your own content so that learners battle, explore, or adventure through their topic as a player in a game. Use either the Story Editor or Flowchart (drag and drop) to write out questions and answers that are presented in a decision tree. Then, choose your points system and make sure your game aligns with your objectives (teaching sales, GDPR policy changes, or internet safety). Once your game is generated, you can easily share it with thousands of learners to teach them the new material and track their progress.
