CourseBuilder is an affordable Learning Content Management System (LCMS) that simplifies the process of developing, managing, and publishing your instructor-led course-ware.
Learning Content Management
Manage your instructor-led PowerPoint® and/or Word® course files by using CourseBuilder. Rapidly combine your course material into a variety of flexible designs, from simple lessons to entire courses. By using reusable learning object files you can avoid managing multiple copies and versions – fix it once, fix it everywhere!
Build (Construct) your courses quickly and effortlessly within Catalogs:
Create catalogs and add flexible and diverse course types, such as Basic (short term duration – 1 day), Standard (medium term duration 2 to 5 day) and Comprehensive (long term duration – 1, 2, 3+ weeks) courses. Import courses from other catalogs. Copy content from one course to another, or copy a complete course and bespoke it to suit your new requirement. Lock catalogs and any course within to prevent unauthorized modification.
Rapid Course Creation
Quickly construct new courses or add content to your current courses. Drag and drop your Microsoft PowerPoint® and/or Word® reusable learning objects and shared learning objects (rlo’s/sco’s) into course, section or module containers ready for publishing. Then enter course properties such as course title, version, description and objectives, which are dynamically added to the new course on publish without any further intervention.

Print your Published Course or Documents in .pdf
On completion of publish you have the option to print the course or content you’ve just published either as individual .pdf’s (modules) or bind all together as one complete .pdf, with backgrounds removed (PowerPoint) as per ISO .pdf recommendations (in Notes pages, Handouts or Slide view).

PowerPoint® can be viewed in slide, handout or notes pages view. If you then decide to edit, simply double click on the file and you’re ready to go.
