Healthcare Learning Courses: Never Author Alone and Never Be Boring
By Tom Noser, Senior Director of Product Management, HealthStream
Authoring courses can be a lonely, dreary business. But it doesn’t have to be. Ever wanted to be able to work on a course with subject matter experts and other authors across departments? Or even across your enterprise without having to send big flies through email or set up complex sharing sites? Now you can.
HealthStream has just launched a new authoring product that’s a whole new way to work on creating online courseware. Instead of working behind a honking program locked to one computer, now you can access powerful authoring software from any computer with an Internet connection. We call the product Team Author.
Team Author—A New Way to Author Courses Collaboratively
Team Author is a fully SCORM-compliant tool that allows groups of authors to work together in shared spaces online. Team Author has templates that make creating complex branching and interactions easy. Start with an imported PowerPoint and use Team Author’s many page templates to add quizzes, interactions, videos and audio to your course.
While you’re authoring with peers and colleagues, remember to never make your courses dull. Many savvy authors have been using top-notch healthcare images and content from the A.D.A.M Resource Library for years. In October, A.D.A.M. is completely new with a brand new product created just for HealthStream customers, the A.D.A.M. Resource Collection.
The New A.D.A.M. Resource Collection—Expanded Resources to Enliven Your Authored Courses
By mid-October, all current A.D.A.M. Resource Library customers will be automatically upgraded to the new and improved A.D.A.M. Resource Collection. You will access the A.D.A.M. Resource Collection directly from the HealthStream Learning Center (HLC).
Here is a comparison of features between the current A.D.A.M. Resource Library and the new A.D.A.M. Resource Collection.
The A.D.A.M. Resource Collection content is created by professional medical illustrators then reviewed by physicians and/or anatomical PhDs for medical accuracy. The URAC-accredited A.D.A.M. Resource Collection is the perfect solution for creating your own professional quality courses without requiring expensive professional authoring services. We are just one short month away from bringing you this exciting new collection!
So, keep your authoring social with Team Author and your courses cool by using resources from the new ADAM Resource Collection. We can’t wait to see what you create.
