Branching Made Easy
Taking different actions for different situations needs no programming - simply set the conditions to be met with options on a single dialog. Loops and performing math calculations are just as easy.
SCORM is Simple
Our SCORM support isn't fixed into templates or limited to particular commands - you have full control of when and where SCORM actions happen but with the same select-and-apply simplicity as any other activity.
