We are very proud to announce the launch of the free edition of our easygenerator eLearning authoring tool on October 12th. From that day on it will be possible to go to our website, fill in a form and start working in easygenerator within a minute. This edition is completely free and without any time limits. If you’d like, you may preregister now at www.easygenerator.com/ (you will receive your login instructions by email on October 12th, just before the official launch).
This blog post will give you an overview on what you can expect from our free edition. There is a lot more information on the easygenerator website than we can put in this blog post, included in this post are links to relevant pages with videos and presentations that provide more detail.
Easygenerator is a SaaS solution, all data is securely stored on our webservers and is accessible anyplace, anywhere and anytime. For the free version we will start out with webservers located in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia. The authoring interface of easygenerator is a Windows application, so you will need a computer with Windows to run it. That said, the courses you create with easygenerator can run on any kind of computers, browser, or mobile device.
Complete eLearning courses
This free edition will enable you to create complete eLearning courses. It will contain the ‘What You See Is What You Get interface’. With the free edition of easygenerator you can create publications in SCORM 1.2 and in HTML, allowing you to run the courses through your LMS and on mobile devices.
Our goal is to enable you to create better eLearning so we have included all the options around our unique approach of Learning objectives all branching options, and all adaptive facilities.
The free edition will have the PowerPoint import tool, enabling you to import your courses made in PowerPoint into easygenerator and use the texts and images as a starting point for a ‘proper’ eLearning SCORM or mobile course. PowerPoint animations will not be imported, but you can build them in easygenerator with our timeline function.
We will include the external review option, we believe this is one of the coolest things we’ve developed. From the authoring environment you are able to send an invitation to anyone through email and they will get access to your course through our web server. It will look and function completely just as the learner would see it, but they will have the ability to include comments on each page. These comments will automatically become available inside the authoring environment.
There is a lot more. You can embed web based content such as Youtube videos, create question pools and more.
In comparison to our subscription edition the free edition has some limitations. You can only have a single account (so you can’t use our collaboration options) and there is a maximum of 10 courses. An overview of these limitations can be found on www.easygenerator.com/free , this page also contains the form to preregister for the free edition.
As you can see there is a lot to discover. In order to help you we will organize a series of free webinars where we will give you a 30 minute introduction of easygenerator. If you preregister for the free edition you will automatically receive an invitation for one of these webinars.
