Authoring Tools



Authoring tools are software programs that allow for the virtual creation of web pages, CBT courseware, CD-ROMs, tutorials and similar interactive programs. These authoring tools allow entry level programmers/designers to create professional programs, as these tools require little or no program writing. This is the result of basic preconfigured programs that have been written to allow the user to construct their own programs using multiple visual tools and aids.
