complete and dedicated solutions with opus pro - flash, multimedia and elearning software and authoring tools
don't let software restrict the effectiveness of your training
By working closely with elearning professionals we make sure Opus Pro offers key features trainers really need. It's easy to use without limiting you to fixed templates and is the most cost-effective tool for developing all levels of training and elearning. The question object makes building a wide range of standard and engaging tests simple whilst not limiting your effectiveness with fixed templates. The automatic scoring system saves time and money. Opus Pro makes a wider range of projects cost-effective as well as reducing costs on everyday projects.
From eLearning Developers to Subject Matter Experts
Opus Pro is simple enough for non-specialists as well as having the power and versatility required by professional training providers. The material is also much easier to keep up to date, especially with the Update Publication feature. Any portion of the material can be locked so the core publication can be developed and designed by elearning professionals and then the content can be edited by subject matter experts.
This is particularly important if you need to keep training development inhouse for security or confidentiality reasons or if you don't have the budget for outside developers.
Automatic Questions and Sophisticated Assessment
Our work with real world elearning customers in the UK and USA, means we've created a set of flexible and adaptable question formats based on real world requirements including:
Opus Pro Tracks Scores for You
A comprehensive range of scoring variables are now tracked automatically by Opus Pro. In addition to the user's score as a value, a percentage and the number of correct or incorrect answers, you can access the total number of questions, the score for the current question and much more. Most sophisticated of all Opus will calculate the total possible score the learner could achieve if they get all the remaining questions correct. This can be used to stop the test the moment the learner falls below the required standard, saving time for both student and trainer alike.
Critical Questions for Competency Assurance
Individual questions, tests or topics can be marked as critical so that they MUST be passed whatever the score the learner has achieved elsewhere. Your elearning material can assure comptence and test both crucial and additional knowledge in one test.
Long Answer Checking
Our sophisticated search and scoring system for text input and long answers means you can check any answer for both individual keywords and key phrases. Having full control means you can also legislate for common typos or spelling errors and all answers can be weighted as required.
Scoring and Testing Simulations
The new scoring system is not just for questions and answers. You can tell any action to set a particular answer so you can even integrate and assess complex simulations and equipment tests. Individual questions can be set as course critical so you can ensure a critical part of the course MUST be passed, irrespective of the user's score in the rest of the test.
Versatile SCORM Made Easier
We've now made intergation of SCORM much easier by including SCORM functions as Opus preset actions - no more scripting! But unlike our competitors we don't force you to use a template, or restrict the data models you can use - we give you all the flexibility you need. Now you control what happens if the publication is being used offline or on a mobile platform. We have templates to get you started of course but you can make sure they do exactly what you need. And if you want us to develop a specific template for your organization ask sales for our highly cost-effective pricing and you'll be productive even quicker.
The new SCORM functionality offers industry-standard while allowing more power and versatility than most of our competitors at a lower price. Make sure your training is not restricted by the software you choose.
