  • Learner, administration and analytical/report screens for the top 45

Valerio Torda, eXact learning solutions’ managing director, commented, “This is the first time that the company’s authoring tool has been named on the list. It’s great to see eXact learning solutions’ products being selected as leading examples in their fields – especially since the company’s authoring tool is a highly developed, sophisticated piece of software with a simple user interface (UI).

“Increasingly, in a return to the pattern set in the very early days of LMSs and LCMS, content authoring is being closely allied to an LMS or LCMS. Yet it can be difficult for both a producer’s authoring tool and LMS/ LCMS to be of an exceptionally high standard and quality.

“Being named – independently – on these two lists of ‘top products’ illustrates that eXact learning solutions’ products are ‘best of breed’, both separately and when combined.”
