New Case Study Examines How eLearning Innovation Replaced Microsoft® Word™ With MadCap Flare to Streamline the Development and Maintenance of Content for a Growing Number of Online Courses

La Jolla, CA, USA — February 24, 2015 — MadCap Software, Inc., the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio, today announced that it has published a new case study on eLearning Innovation. A leader in creating interactive learning environments, eLearning Innovation uses MadCap Flare for single-source publishing of HTML5 course content, streamlining the process of creating and updating content for a growing number of online courses. The full case study can be viewed at: http://www.madcapsoftware.com/casestudy/elearninginnovation.aspx.

Since 2003, eLearning Innovation has been providing instructional design services to higher education, K-12, corporate, government, and non-profit organizations. Specializing in experiential learning, eLearning Innovation creates active learning environments that inspire and educate. Today, leveraging Madcap Flare’s single-sourcing functionality along with its own custom integration, eLearning Innovation delivers robust online courses directly to a Learning Management System (LMS).

From Flare to Content Server to LMS Seamlessly

common practice in course development is to create content in Microsoft® Word™ and then manually copy and paste it into an HTML editor in an LMS. eLearning Innovation develops hundreds of online courses a year and realized it needed a more-scalable, less error-prone solution. eLearning Innovation now uses Madcap Flare, along with a custom integration, to create and maintain online courses. Using Flare, eLearning Innovation develops course content and then publishes it to its content server. Through a custom integration, the course content is served directly from a link in the LMS.

Among the key benefits eLearning Innovation has realized:
* Taking advantage of Flare’s capabilities for single-source publishing, eLearning Innovation can create content once in Flare, publish it to their content server, and link to it directly from an LMS, streamlining course production and maintenance.
* Snippets, variables, and condition tags allow eLearning Innovation to easily customize content for different roles and audiences.
* Flare-based content is integrated with analytics via custom technology eLearning Innovation has built using the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) specification for real-time insight into users’ experiences with the content.

eLearning Innovation plans to further leverage Flare and the custom integration in two ways:
* The use of conditional tags will provide more granular role-based content
* Proprietary code will be embedded into Flare content that when viewed via the LMS will display a quiz, survey, or a performance-based assessment and its associated rubric. Using Flare condition tags and proprietary technology will enable the display of different versions of the content for different audiences.

"We’ve already gained tremendous benefits by using Flare. We’ve eliminated the problem of having to go into the LMS to make a change to course content. We’ve leveraged the single-sourcing functionality to generate variations of the same course. We can track how learners are interacting with the course content, and soon, we’ll extend our analytics capabilities and evaluate learner progress against outcomes,” said Laurie Pulido, eLearning Innovation founder and president. “We want to continue inspiring innovation,” says Ms. Pulido. “By ramping up our clients with Flare, we can improve our collaborative approach to course design. And with Flare’s integration with source control, we know we can easily keep track of versions.”

“eLearning Innovation is at the forefront in combining content with learning management, course tracking, and analytics, to provide interactive courses that help K-12 schools, universities and colleges, government agencies and non-profits meet their education and training goals,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “We are thrilled by eLearning Innovation’s success in using our MadCap Flare software to tailor and update course content for its broad range of clients, as well as integrate Flare-based content with analytics to gain critical insights for enhancing students’ experiences.”
