Trivantis' 2006 Release of Lectora Authoring Software Takes eLearning Development to the Next Level

CINCINNATI--Dec. 2, 2005--Trivantis Corporation, the leader in digital authoring and publishing software, today announced the release of the Lectora 2006 line of authoring and publishing tools, which includes Lectora Publisher, Lectora Professional Publishing Suite, and Lectora International Publishing Suite, plus special language versions in Spanish, German, and Dutch. The explosive growth of elearning globally and the needs of trainers and educators for increasingly faster content development were significant influences on the more than 50 new features of Lectora 2006. Trivantis continues to make the creation of online content easier, faster, and more efficient than ever before, while also providing the flexibility for programmers and technical savvy users to utilize an array of advanced features to create high-end courses.

"The 2005 version of Lectora received rave reviews from our clients," said Ben Contra, Trivantis Executive Vice President. "This year, however, Lectora takes elearning development to the next level by providing the best features we've seen to date. Clients who tested the beta version were awed by the many benefits Lectora 2006 provides and we anticipate another record breaking year!"

Key features to the Lectora 2006 line of authoring tools include:

-- JavaScript Title Manager. Helps overcome firewall and security issues involving Java applets by publishing to AJAX, which does not require the applets. Organizations previously "cut off" from elearning due to security concerns can now offer online training.

-- Translation Tool. Instantly extracts text from content for faster and more convenient translation. Once translated, the text can be quickly imported into the content.

-- Preview and Test in Browsers. Previews selected page in multiple browsers to test for compatibility and differences. Helps content developers foresee problems, improve compatibility, and manage consistency of the content.

-- Drag-and-Drop Additional Files. Enables quick and easy addition of files such as PDFs and Microsoft PowerPoint files.

-- Object and Page Transitions. Adds pizzazz to content with engaging transitions such as wipes, splits, boxes, checkers, strips, bars, and more.

-- Sticky Notes. Enhances collaborative authoring environments by adding customizable "sticky notes," which track the author's name and the time it was posted.

-- Assignable Unit Prerequisites. Defines custom learning paths by specifying requirements for progressing through a course.

-- Question Feedback Pop-Up. Provides custom option to question feedback as a pop-up window.

-- Eyedropper Color Selection. Provides exact color selection and duplication for text, shapes, or lines to ensure a consistent graphic look.

Lectora meets all of the latest elearning standards, enabling content to be easily published to SCORM, AICC, and Microsoft (R) LRN. Trivantis' destination-neutral philosophy carries through in Lectora, enabling content to be published to any standards-based learning management system, including Blackboard, WebCT, Pathlore, Plateau, Saba, TEDS, and many more.

"Lectora is unrivaled in publishing to different learning management systems, industry elearning standards, and downloadable media formats," said Tim Loudermilk, Trivantis founder and Chief Software Architect. "The 2006 feature additions to Lectora build on that flexibility. Our customers and prospective customers will find that the content they can create with Lectora and where it can be successfully viewed are practically unlimited."
