Elicitus Authoring Tool Announces New Version

Trendy Looking Version 7.0 Adds Voiceover Recording, Enhances User Experience.

Redmond, WA, June 13, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Harbinger Knowledge Products has announced the release of Version 7.0 of Elicitus, its award-winning rapid eLearning authoring tool. The highlights of this release are sound recorder and enhanced user experience. This release also boasts of a completely new trendy look.

“We are excited to deliver this feature-loaded new release which makes rapid interactive course authoring robust and intuitive”, said Vikas Joshi, Chairman and Managing Director of Harbinger Group.

An embedded sound recorder is one of the most appealing additions in this new release. Now users can record their own narration, voice-overs and include those to their eLearning courses. Of course, they can also bring in pre-recorded voices, music or sound effects. Course designers no more need to open another sound recorder to record and attach sound for their courses. The sound recorder is available right inside Elicitus which can be opened with just one click. This recorder can be used to record sound for topic pages, questions, hyperlinks, media attachments and even for glossary terms.

Apart from the many user-oriented features and technical enhancements, this release also provides many features such as more options for global settings, enhanced score tracking mechanisms and support for more media formats. As always with Elicitus, you do not need any plug-ins to harness its power.

"This release enhances the user experience for course creators, and I am sure they will love it. We want course creators to spend more time and energy in defining the content, and less time in figuring out how to use a tool, or in programming. This release is a significant step forward in that direction,” said Seema Chaudhary, Director, Business Development.
