Online PR News – 08-October-2009 – – Rapid Intake (http://www.rapidintake.com) announced today that it has added SWiSH, an easy-to-use rapid Flash animation tool, to its award-winning elearning software ProForm Rapid eLearning Studio. The addition of SWiSH allows e-learning developers and instructional designers to easily build animations and synchronize audio with no Flash programming required.

“Making rapid Flash animations for e-learning is now extremely easy,” said Garin Hess, Rapid Intake CEO. “Now anyone can create stunning e-learning animations without being a technical wizard.”

ProForm SWiSH comes with hundreds of preset animations and library items that make it extremely easy to build illustrative animations to make e-learning courses more effective. Users can also download e-learning templates for SwiSH to create interactive activities, such as an image mouse rollover interaction for explaining different parts of an image.

Most of Rapid Intake's tools are form driven, meaning that courses and interactive activities can be built by simply filling out a form. This makes the tools easy to learn to use, and the e-learning courses more consistent for the learners while simultaneously reducing development time and human error. Even with the instant preview available in ProForm, users still occasionally need to design content in a drag and drop visual interface.

“Now you can lay out what you want visually when needed, then animate it with no programming,” said Jeff Batt, Marketing Coordinator at Rapid Intake. “Our customers asked for this feature, and now we are giving it to them.”

Rapid Intake's e-learning authoring tools are known for their ability to combine and integrate modular Flash movies into an interactive course that runs on any SCORM learning management system (LMS). Instructional designers and e-learning developers also use Rapid Intake's built-in interactive templates to build learning games, quizzes, tests, and branching scenario simulations. ProForm Rapid eLearning Studio was recognized as the first place winner of the Best of 2008 contest by Elearning! Magazine, beating out major competitors such as Articulate, Adobe, and Trivantis.

SWiSH can also be used with Rapid Intake's online course authoring tool, Unison. Because Unison is an online tool, multiple users can log in from any location and build course content individually or collaboratively online. With SWiSH, Rapid Intake users simply create the animation on their desktop, then upload the Flash movie to integrate with the rest of their course.
