The authoring tools market has vast choice, from software to create simple presentations with some user interaction, through to high-end tools packed with features. Selecting which one to use to deliver your training content on the web, CD or on your LAN or WAN can be a challenge and often depends on the type of training that you want to create. If someone is taking on a very sophisticated authoring tool, you need to consider the price of the tool, the training and the time required to learn it. Once you've bought your e-learning authoring tools, you still have to write the courses.
