  • “Powerful and yet easy to use to create engaging e-learning courses.” 2015
  • “for work -due to the nature of our organnisational environment (very diverse combination of corporate and, largely operational / field based employees in the public transport sector – train drivers, bus drivers, road designers, customer service etc etc) the environment for elearning combines PCs with IE8 and ipads. When developing self paced elearning we have had to use Lectora as it creates html(4) which outputs to both IE8 and iPads.” Tanya Lau, 2014
  • “for easy HTML authoring,” Sergey Snegirev, 2014
  • “for formal elearning content”  Patti Shank”
