With the growth of technology and e-learning solutions, there is a wide range of applications for the creation of virtual courses and support for online training processes. These serve as good options for the cooperate sectors in relation to software developments aimed at generating content for e-learning initiatives.

  These online development projects, provide open source applications. The e-learning development tools are available for free to help a vast section of content developers and students for the publication of web content.  They do not need to be an expert in HTML or XML format. The resources created online, can be exported in content packages in IMS, SCORM 1.2 or IMS Common Cartridge formats, or as simple independent web pages.

The focus is mainly to provide academic assistance and help in educational research and development.  They offer a complete suite of open source tools under a public license, for developers and e-learning contenders, for the rapid development of interactive content, in an easy-to-use and friendly way. It aims to rapidly respond to various situations and problems that are faced by content developers to create effective and create interactive content for educational purposes and seeks to accelerate the process of developing them.

E-learning content development tools provide a visual as well as graphic creation environment, based on icons, that allows to easily generate learning objects with the feature that is helpful in minimizing the use of scripts, saving a lot of development time for content.

 The users can easily integrate texts, graphics, animations, sounds and video, even If the user of the application does not write code. They help in creating simple an accessible interaction interface. The generated content can be compatible with SCORM for its use in any LMS (Learning Management System) or VLE (Virtual Learning Environment). Meanwhile, if the user does write code, he or she can create complex and sophisticated structures for interaction interface. This interface can be customized and the user can develop their own interfaces and navigation systems for e-learning solutions.

Some of these tools offer the "Clean Up" HTML functionality that is important for several export modes. This feature greatly helps those e-book readers by giving them access to the contents developed by e-classes. They aim to build a set of user-friendly functions, multi-platform software tools for the development of e-books and learning modules. The purpose of these tools is to allow the content development authors to spend more time developing content and less time managing the technical aspects of creating multimedia electronic documentation.

The tools are capable of exporting to the following devices and formats:

• HTML (any modern browser)
• IMS Content Package (for LMS`s as Moodle)
• ePub (for readers of electronic books such as iBooks)

Some of the e-learning tools are basically, cloud presentation software that opens a new world between blackboards and slides. The zoomed canvas it proposes, makes it easier to explore ideas and connections as a very visual application.

These author tools are powerful for e-learning that can be published on the Internet, Learning Management Systems (LMS) and other distribution media. They also offer a programming environment for the creation of interactive high-quality training content.
