Learning Cards upgrade available

Having established a market presence with its ‘Learning Cards’ software - launched last September - Trainer1 has enhanced and launched version 2 of the product.

Learning Cards are a ‘high tech’ version of traditional ‘flash cards’ which allows users to make sets of revision cards when learning online. Like a flash card, each Learning Card is two sided – with the question on one ‘side’ and the answer on the other. There are no limits on the number of cards that there can be in each set.

The updated version of this software contains:

  • Wizards to help developers create cards
  • Wizards to help developers create sets of cards
  • A scoring and timing system – for use with multiple choice questions and answers
  • Easy output to HTML for publishing Learning Cards on the Internet
  • The ability to incorporate audio and video into the Learning Cards

Neil Lasher, Trainer1’s managing director, commented: "This low cost authoring tool has great potential to help learners – in the same way as flash cards have been highly effective aids to learning over very many years.

"Not only is it possible to master the technology behind producing Learning Cards in about 30 minutes but the applications of this technology range from teaching basic skills such as maths and reading, through GCSE, AS and A level examinations to professional examinations."

Learning Cards are presented on the user’s computer monitor in a ‘skin’ – enabling developers to ’brand’ the cards with a logo or image. The program’s editor package outputs either html for the web or a single file that can be transferred to disk or sent by email.

Lasher added: "Each card can contain text, graphics, animation, Flash, audio and make use of RTF and HTML files. Graphics automatically resize to fit the Learning Card and they can be presented in a random order to the end user."

Demo versions of Learning Cards – allowing users to make sets of up to five cards - are available free of charge. The full version is available as a home user licence with restricted publish rights at £39.99 or as a professional developer licence for five users at £299 + VAT.

Trainer1 offers free, fully licensed copies to academic organisations, including schools, colleges and universities in return for the organisation making the product available to parents and students.
