Providing better authoring tools for e-learning

A common question we get when we demonstrate what we thinke-learning should be today is, “What tool did you use to develop that?”When we reveal the expertise it took, many respond that it would be too difficult, too expensive, and too time-consuming for them; and they’d be right. We have the power of skilled, talented people in our studios to make up for the lack of sufficiently powerful and yet easy to use tools, but most don’t. Is this, perhaps, a major reason why so much e-learning is not much more than a presentation with some questions?
