Authoring Tool

Functional Modules

ePublishing Development Platform

MULTILANGUAGE SUPPORT

One of the challenges in making your eContent truly international or ready for localization is to make sure it can handle  non-latin alphabets and writing styles. From the very beginning mAuthor was designed to support double-byte character sets (DBCS) what allows you to create Content in practically any language.

mAuthor offers also a dedicated Translation Support Editor which allows you to convert texts while observing introduced changes directly in the Activities that you are editing.

Arabic alphabet

As it comes to Arabic language, supporting DBCS standard is not enough. It was necessary to implement also a special functionality which allows you writing in right-to-left mode. Thanks to this possibility you may localize latin-based materials or simply create the new Content without any problems.

عندما يتعلق الأمر باللغة العربية، فإن دعم معايير DBCS ليس كافياً. بل كان من الضروري إضافة وظيفة خاصة تتيح لك الكتابة من اليمين إلى اليسار. وبفضل هذه الميزة أصبح بالإمكان تعريب المواد التي تعتمد الكتابة اللاتينية، أو ببساطة تطوير محتوى عربي جديد دون أية مشاكل.

Chinese alphabet

Supporting Chinese language is also a challenge. Thanks to DBCS standard it is possible to handle huge number of specific characters but it is important also to take care for specific layout of Chinese texts. Fortunately with mAuthor’s WYSIWYG editing mode the process of fine-tuning the complex layout is convenient and straightforward.

支持中文也是一个挑战!由于DBCS的标准,因而可以处理大量的特定文字符号,但重要的是它还能够支持中文排版。使用mAuthor的WYSIWYG(所见即所得)编辑模式,我们能够以微调的方式排版,使复杂的过程变得非常方便和直接。

Cyrillic alphabet

Handling Cyrillic alphabet brings less technical challenges. With mAuthor you can export the texts embedded in created eContent to industry standard XLIFF file format and use professional translating software. After the translations are done you can import the files back and just take care for proper layout of translated texts.

Обработка кириллицы приносит меньше технических проблем. С mAuthor Вы можете экспортировать тексты, включенные в Контент, созданный в формате стандартной промышленности .xliff файлов и использовать профессиональное программное обеспечение перевода. После того, как переводы сделаны вы можете импортировать файлы обратно и просто заботиться о правильной компоновке переведенных текстов.

Thai alphabet

Thanks to the capabilities mentioned above, handling other alphabets like: Thai, Hindi, Korean, Japanese or Hebrew makes no bigger problems. You always need to take special attention to writing styles and traditions of particular language, but with mAuthor you can adjust its eContent to any such requirements.

ขอขอบคุณความสามารถดังกล่าวข้างต้น, การจัดการอื่น ๆ เช่นตัวอักษร: ไทย, ภาษาฮินดี, เกาหลี, ญี่ปุ่นหรือภาษาฮิบรูทำให้ไม่มีปัญหาใหญ่ คุณมักจะต้องใช้ความสนใจเป็นพิเศษในการบิดรูปแบบและขนบธรรมเนียมประเพณีของภาษาใดภาษาหนึ่ง แต่มี mAuthor คุณสามารถปรับเนื้อหาของความต้องการดังกล่าว

TEMPLATES

AWARDS

Thanks to its extensive capabilities mAuthor was distinguishes by “Training Industry”, one of the most influential online magazines concerning eLearning technologies. According to the magazine experts Learnetic has joined the club of 2017 Top 20 Companies in Authoring Tools category.

Adaptive

Learning

Paths

Thanks to a large quantity and variety of functional modules,  mAuthor is best positioned product to be used for projects aiming for highly interactive courses incorporating Adaptive Learning design. It offers vast capabilities to build educational courses dynamically matching the presented content depending on the results of individual tasks, exercises or quizzes performed by the learner.

Starting from conducting the initial test (ie. Initial Assessment), mAuthor’s “adaptive engine” (Interactive Content Player) selects the appropriate path, offering exercises and presentations tailored to the current level of knowledge of particular learner. In this way, users of smaller fund of knowledge get tasks and presentations bit easier to assimilate. On the other hand, learners having a higher level of sophistication in the issue given, are getting more difficult tasks, requiring more effort to solve them.

With this approach, we implement the idea that everyone, regardless of his or her abilities and capacities, could reach the level of skills and knowledge corresponding to his or her maximum capabilities (instead of leveling and equalisation).

If you would like to learn more about mAuthor’s capabilities in this respect we encourage you to visit our blog where you can learn also what is the Adaptive Learning in more detail.

  • Start with a Concept

    So! You have an idea for your next digital Course? Great. Before you start designing prepare a detailed script and storyboards to turn your ideas into more specific concepts.

  • Define a Structure

    Having a good plan is crucial to your success. Prepare a structure of your next Course. Use mAuthor’s hierarchy-tree builder to set a “Table of Contents” of your project.

  • Build Interactive Pages

    Start filling the structure with quality digital content. Coordinate the work of project manager, graphic designers, subject matter experts, editors and publishers.

  • Preview

    Nice design and smart functionality needs time and work. With mAuthor’s WYSIWYG editor the work is faster, more efficient and you can instantly preview the results.

  • Edit and refine

    Check & improve, check & improve, check &  …,  sometimes it takes tens of iterations to make your content working the way you want. Sometimes you may also get lost. Fortunately mAuthor takes care for Versions Control helping you to keep everything in order.

  • Proof-check and Review

    Now, it is time to check how others like what you did and let them give their input. Your rigorous correctors, proof checkers and testers will dig-deep to make sure that everything is working smoothly and errorless.

  • Publish

    And finally, “The Day” has come. Your digital Course is ready to be published. Congratulations, with mAuthor your interactive eContent will astonish even the most demanding users – your Students.
