Provides all the means necessary for creating high-quality interactive e-Learning content. No HTML or other programming skills required. Constructs e-Learning content of almost any complexity addressed to all ages or fields of work. All the inside objects are customizable.

Nowadays, e-learning is one of the most powerful educational tools. And to create effective e-learning courses, you need to integrate different resources, such as graphics, animation, video, and so on. This program lets you create entire courses, modules, or single slides easily. It includes a wizard that will walk you through the entire process. First, you need to give a name to your course and set the location in which it will be created. The program also includes several templates you can use in your slides. Then, you can start creating your first module. You can insert objects such as talking heads, pictures or photos, different interactions between characters, as well as links to external Web pages or documents, screen captures, dialog balloons, and more. Finally, when everything is done, you can publish your course so it can be played from CD or as a SCORM object. Also, you can publish it in the CourseLab.com platform.

The interface and several functions of the program are akin to those of MS PowerPoint, so if you are familiar with the latter, then you will have no problem in using CourseLab. Nevertheless, there are some differences that you may want to learn before starting.

Please note that, although the program is free, you need to register your copy by providing your contact information, including a valid e-mail. Also, if you like the program and want to obtain a version with more features, you can purchase the 2.7 version, which is more advanced and has more functions.
