|CTC HQ Develops Courseware Authoring
ACAT is the new software product that designers
within G3 Trg Dev DLP, CTC Gagetown, have created and implemented
for the development of their electronic courseware.. With the
introduction of SCORM and the concept of sharable content,
development of a better system for creating standardized and
shareable courseware became a high priority. ACAT allows instructors
to create and reuse learning objects and then bundle the Learning
Objects into new courses. The courses can then be accessed through
the repository or exported as a stand-alone or SCORM package. ACAT
separates the content from the presentation allowing for maximum
reuse without branding throughout CTC. The branding occurs in the
presentation. MORE >>>
