In part 3 of our blog series on Employee-generated Learning, we talked about course authoring tools. We also took you through some of the key features you can come to expect from such tools.

In this blog post, we’ll dive into one of the most exciting aspects of Employee-generated Learning: collaboration. We’ll look at how authoring tools like Easygenerator prompt employees to work together for the benefit of their colleagues.

Co-authoring

Easygenerator prompts course creators to seek input from different co-authors, both inside and outside the organization. It allows L&D teams to create courses together with their employees. As a co-author, you don’t even need an Easygenerator account to provide input.

Peer Review

Alongside its co-authoring feature, Easygenerator also introduced an updated peer review system. Course creators can ask external assessors to check the quality of their course and provide feedback. Authors can send a link to anyone they want to consult. Those reviewers don’t even need their own Easygenerator account.

Tagging

Easygenerator allows authors to add tags. These are keywords that describe your course. They help authors and co-authors quickly navigate a list of courses. Tagging is particularly helpful for teams who work on different modules and courses at the same time.

Reuse sections

Authors can recycle and customize previous content with Easygenerator. When making changes to either an original or reused section, your changes will automatically apply to both. This reduces maintenance efforts and helps scalability. If a particular page includes questions, the software can also generate quizzes or assessments.

Conclusion

Collaborative working is probably one of the greatest features when it comes to course creation. It massively improves the quality of your course while strengthening employee engagement. Course authoring tools like Easygenerator, allow this kind of joint working to run as smoothly as possible.
