Collaborative Course Authoring e-Learning Software Wins Gold Two Years in a Row

Online rapid e-learning development software takes top honors

Online PR News – 28-May-2010 – – Rapid Intake, the leader in collaborative e-learning software, announced today that its online collaborative course authoring and course review solution won the coveted Brandon Hall Gold award for excellence in learning technology in the Rapid Authoring category.

Built on Rapid Intake’s flexible XML platform, Unison™ is a web-based solution that lets designers and subject matter experts (SMEs) collaboratively capture, storyboard, develop, review, test, and publish Flash-based courses—without having to know Flash. Novice users and content owners convert PowerPoint presentations or simply fill out form-based templates to create interactive Flash-based learning activities and courses, while advanced users and communities create reusable custom templates by accessing the Flash source code (.fla). Project-based subscriptions enable entire teams to work together at less cost. All output is SCORM compliant, rich-media compatible, and works on most PC and Mac browsers.

“Rapid Intake Unison is a world-class authoring solution,” said Garin Hess, Rapid Intake CEO. “We were delighted to hear Rapid Intake was voted best-in-class two years in a row.”

Rapid Intake Unison received the Gold award last year for Most Innovative Learning Technology from Brandon Hall making it the only e-learning authoring tool to receive these two awards in consecutive years. Their desktop authoring solution, ProForm Rapid eLearning Studio, received similar attention by receiving Best of Elearning! awards two years in a row from Elearning! Magazine.

We were delighted to hear Rapid Intake was voted best-in-class two years in a row.

“These outstanding tools and systems propel the learning profession forward,” said Brandon Hall, Ph.D., chairman of the Awards program. “These innovative products let customers make learning faster, better, and easier.”

To win the entry, contestants submitted a recorded demonstration, then judges downloaded and tested the solution themselves. Marek Hyla, one of the contest judges sent Rapid Intake this comment: “I have just evaluated your solution for the contest. I was amazed.”
