London, United Kingdom, 2009/08/03 - Saffron Interactive, one of Europe’s leading mobile and blended learning companies, took another step towards fusing bespoke and rapid e-learning development approaches today by announcing the launch of its range of Content Development Kit products.
Saffron’s CEO Hanif Sazen explains that “organisations often have a need for content that is on the whole generic but with some bespoke elements that are required by the business. Our Content Development Kits provide a base for these organisations to rapidly develop content that meets this need.”
The learning and development equivalent of flatpack furniture, Content Development Kits come in the form of a build-it-yourself toolkit.
• A Flash based course is provided, along with a maintenance tool that allows non technical team members to update content and re-publish the course without reference to Saffron.
• The maintenance environment uses an interface very similar to Microsoft Word, allowing subject matter experts to update and spell check text content, change graphics and generate scripts for review. Logos, colour schemes and navigation elements can all be quickly and easily adapted for the business by the user.
• Each Content Development Kit includes one day of design time provided by a Saffron designer to help ensure the look and feel of the course meets the client’s brand guidelines. Audio is included but can easily be refreshed if required.
The issue with current rapid development tools and approaches is that they speed up the software development but not the instructional design. So even with an authoring tool, a client needs to take the time to write the content. The Content Development Kits provide content that can then be tailored to meet an organisation’s needs and provide the value of a bespoke course at the price and speed of a rapid development project.
Content Development Kits are available in English, French, German and Spanish and are developed to run with learning management systems that support the SCORM standards.
