Releases Advanced E-Learning Authoring Tool has released an authoring tool designed for teachers to easily create e-learning materials using its visual design mode called Advanced eLearning Builder. The authoring tool is designed for creating e-learning materials such as e-tests, tutorials and quizzes, which contain several types of exercises, with just a few mouse clicks. By planning in visual mode, exercises can be designed, corrected, examined, complemented and updated quickly.

Various elements such as fill-in-the-blank, multiple-choice and alternative questions are used to set test questions. The program allows users to customize tests using various types of text, graphics, multimedia, object linking and embedding, and buttons that help provide an attractive look and professional feel. Advanced eLearning Builder also contains many predefined test templates, which make creating tests as easy as editing text in a word processor.

Advanced eLearning Builder's visual design mode allows the building of e-learning materials in a simple and comprehensive way that lets the user see exactly how the final test will look when deployed. In addition, built-in dynamic resolution assures you that a test will automatically adjust to all possible screen resolutions that end users may have, so the look won't be deformed in any way. The program also offers test-flow control, which allows you to write teaching sequences that can adjust to the students' knowledge, as well as supply them with additional information when needed; this way, individualization is supported. Advanced eLearning Builder costs $89, and school site licenses are available. For more information or to download a free trial copy, visit
