Harbinger Knowledge Products Releases Update for Award-Winning Raptivity Software with More HTML5 Interactions and Many Other Major Improvements

Version 6.6 empowers e-learning presenters to be more creative with new interactive tools.

Redmond, WA, October 15, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Harbinger Knowledge Products, a global leader in interactive eLearning, presentation and website software, today released a major update of its award-winning eLearning software, Raptivity, that offers significantly more interactivity and creativity tools for presenters.

The new 6.6 version of Raptivity brings a host of technological advances, including an expanded library of HTML5 interactions, a much-awaited feature. With the release of the HTML5 Starter Pack in the new version, Raptivity now offers a selection of more than 15 HTML5 interactions – all of which can be played on mobile devices such as the iPad and iPhone. Raptivity was the first rapid eLearning development tool to embrace HTML5 technology when it launched the HTML5 TurboPack in October 2010.

Other major enhancements in version 6.6 will extend the popular "FlexiRaptivity" features to more interaction packs. The new features include:

- Greater support for video in many more interactions;
- Flexible controls on various interaction elements, giving users to greater control over resizing them to better fit varying amount of text and other content;
- Ability for users to add additional media assets to the interactions if needed;
- Support for mobile publishing;
- Much higher flexibility in interaction templates;
- Ability to add rich media to enrich content;
- Sleek user interface.

“With the release of this latest version, Raptivity continues to be a trailblazer in the world of e-learning software,” said Vikas Joshi, chairman and managing director of the Harbinger Group. “We are constantly adapting and improving Raptivity interactions to keep on top of emerging trends in eLearning. HTML5 support is yet another example of that. With this release we have more than doubled our offering of HTML5 interactions and given our customers something that they have been clamoring for.”

There are also important changes to Raptivity interactions and their categories. Many of the interactions in the Booster pack have been consolidated and rearranged for easier manageability without compromising any functionality. In fact, the booster pack has become more powerful with the inclusion of the new features of Raptivity version 6.6.

“Users of Raptivity all over the world told us that they loved the flexibility that we provided in the FlexiRaptivity packs in the last release,” said Seema Chaudhary, President of Harbinger Knowledge Products Inc. “With this new release, FlexiRaptivity now becomes the standard in Raptivity. Industry analysts consistently rank Raptivity as the most easy to use eLearning tool, and we think the tremendous improvements in version 6.6 will make Raptivity even better.”
