Good authoring tools tend to harbour specific features which make them effective for training employees. SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s authoring feature provides users access to a plethora of tools to contribute to training success.

Learning agility and adaptability are essential for the maintenance of relevant course material and changing industry trends. SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s template-driven authoring tool enables you to update or create new content for courses which are immediately distributable.

Cloud-based means that content is instantaneously available to users to progress through their training on their own devices. That means that you are able to update content based on last night’s news or changing stocks, which is immediately accessible for your employees.

A competitive diversion is created when features, such as point scores, prizing and star bars, are regularly awarded to users. Traditional learning methods for employee training have an average completion rate of approximately 20%, however with SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s gamification approach this rate is boosted to over 80%.

We also understand the difficulties which can be associated with attempting to cater for the needs and preferences of employees around the globe. This is why we have made it easy for you to educate all of your employees at once with automatic language translation.
