Why Trainers Need StreamAuthor to Create E-Learning Content StreamAuthor lets presenters — such as teachers, trainers, or sales people — create informative, persuasive and stylish presentations quickly.
StreamAuthor enables presenters of all experience levels create e-learning materials that they can deliver via email, the Web or Intranet. Presenters can combine both training and testing content and then publish online for use by multiple students at multiple locations. StreamAuthor thus offers an extremely cost-effective way of developing e-learning materials.
Powerful Recording and Editing Features StreamAuthor supports a full range of video file formats for creating presentations from captured video. PowerPoint, Word, Excel, image files, and screen captures, can be easily combined within one presentation.
StreamAuthor features a range of practical tools for editing dynamic content. Customizable templates can be used to easily lay out the look and feel of a presentation, with elements including images, slides, notes, and video. Pen tools provide an effective way to emphasize content on the screen. Meanwhile, an editing timeline lets presenters adjust the flow of their presentations, with adjustable volume and audio recording supporting the quick creation of narration.
Assessments and Sequencing Control Teachers can use StreamAuthor to create tests easily in Microsoft Word format. By combining assessments with content sequencing rules, trainers can measure the effectiveness of their training by ensuring students understand content before moving on to new topics.
