Build Once, Deploy to Many.
With Litmos Author, anybody on your team can create cross-platform mobile courses in minutes, no matter how experienced or inexperienced, they may be. Simply add quizzes and activities using the easy form-based templates and the images, audio files and videos you add to the course are converted to display properly.
Publish with cross-platform support for Apple iOS, Android, and Blackberry touchscreen devices, as well as PC and Mac browsers. The published course detects the platform of the computer or device your learners are using to access it and automatically displays the content properly. All output is SCORM conformant, allowing learners to launch from any SCORM LMS (Learning Management System).
The iPad, iPhone and Android phones all support the opening of Microsoft Word and Excel documents, PDFs and images. When you upload these kinds of documents to your Litmos Author course, they can all be accessed via the mobile device.
Do I need to understand HTML5 programming to use Litmos Author?
Even HTML5 developers don’t fully understand HTML5, so why should you need to? Litmos Author already has the structure in place for your courses, so you don’t need to have any experience programming. Simply input your content using the forms provided and Litmos Author™ compiles it in a mobile-friendly course player that adjusts to fit different mobile devices.
