Redmond, WA, October 07, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Raptivity®, the leading eLearning authoring tool is among the top tools identified in an ongoing user survey and through research data gathered by the eLearning Guild. The eLearning Guild is a leading community of practice for eLearning designers, developers, and managers. For a series of questions asked by The Guild, Raptivity figures in the top six or seven tools used by various eLearning practitioners around the world. In the "ease of use" category of questions, Raptivity leads the pack with over half the respondents claiming that the tool is "very easy" to use.

The majority of data collected by The Guild represents 5,350 respondents from March 2010 to March 2011. In addition to the data, charts and their interpretations, the report brings out insights and goes on to explore in detail, seven rapid authoring tools, including Raptivity. The report highlights Raptivity’s ease of use and the significant reduction in development time per course hour for a course designer who uses Raptivity. “Building an interaction in Raptivity is relatively quick, sometimes taking just a matter of minutes,” claims the report, which is written by Joseph Ganci, President of Dazzle Technologies Corp, a custom training and learning company.

“Raptivity has become a must-have tool in the armory of eLearning practitioners all over the world,” said Seema Chaudhary, President of Harbinger Knowledge Products Inc., the maker of Raptivity. “It is our constant endeavor to make Raptivity very easy for course creators and provide them with a powerful tool for their needs. We are very glad to see that our users find Raptivity among the easiest and powerful to use eLearning tools.”
