TOOLS: GLOBAL LEARNING PUSH GETS FLAGSHIP PRODUCT

Author-it Software Corp. is donating access to its flagship Author-it product to Communications For The World, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to explore how technology can be used to foster global learning and communications, such as developing free online learning material in different languages.

The organization is developing a series of pilot projects utilizing single-source authoring strategies to support global learning initiatives such as One Laptop Per Child, established to examine ways to help provide educational opportunities for children around the world.

Password-protected access to Author-it will allow CFTW to rapidly produce HTML and PDF-based e-learning materials in different languages and subsequently manage updates in the various language versions. Ultimately, CFTW will provide these free online materials for global audiences while saving time on development and research.
