Based on principles of learning science
Using best practices from CMU’s Open Learning Initiative, leaders in learning science research, Acrobatiq Smart Author includes step-by-step guidance to creating exemplary online learning experiences that help students learn more efficiently and effectively.
Designed for collaboration
Includes enterprise-grade workflow tools to support the rapid development of online learning courses and programs. Smart Author includes multiple role types and levels of permissions for complete control over the development process, from initial concept to course release and continuous updates.
Supports multiple content types
Quickly develop lessons with interactive content, activities, and assessments so students learn by doing. Smart Author tools make it easy to include hundreds of discrete opportunities for students to practice skills and learn new concepts.
Includes a variety of assessment types
Easily create goal-directed practice and targeted feedback, critical to learning. Smart Author includes over 25 different activity types to create formative practice embedded with instructional scaffolding such as multiple levels of hints and targeted, timely feedback.
Simplifies course customization
Smart Author gives authoring teams complete control over course content and assessments to organize content in the order you want students to learn. In just a few clicks you can add, remove or reorder learning modules. Create and experiment with alternate versions of the same course “blueprint” for different types of learners.
Personalizes the learning experience
Courses developed in Smart Author dynamically personalize learning for each student, based on his or her own learning needs. With Smart Author, you can easily create adaptive practice sessions that function much like a human tutor for students. Frequent hints and error-sensitive feedback help students get “unstuck” and keep students on track to complete courses with a passing grade or better.
