New software solutions enable users to rapidly create digital content. The emergence of this new software has led to the industrial production of e-learning tools.
The industrialization includes two types of activities:
– The industrialization of tools
– The professionalization and implementation of processes
The industrialization of tools mainly concerns teaching organizations and large companies that have significant human and educational resources. The fact that content can be easily created and distributed has had a direct effect of the volume of production and the harmonization of formats.
This software revolution has enabled the tools to evolve into multimedia e-learning solutions.
The convergence towards a single production tool presents two advantages. It allows people to :
– Move beyond the issues of reversibility inherent to developments in the software used
– Offer a single and global tool to all participants, as each one has different skills in relation to the resources available.
