<p><strong>London &mdash; Nov. 16</strong><br />Trainer1, a U.K. independent e-learning specialist, has upgraded its partnership agreement with Harbinger Knowledge Products (HKP), of Pune, India, the makers of the Raptivity rapid e-learning authoring tool. Under the new agreement, Trainer1 becomes a U.K.-wide reseller for Raptivity and its sister product, Raptivity Zest.<br /><br />&ldquo;Raptivity, the world&rsquo;s first rapid interactivity builder, helps users to create true learning outcomes with meaningful interactivity,&rdquo; explained Trainer1&rsquo;s Neil Lasher. &ldquo;Raptivity also tracks completion status, score and responses and provides this information to authoring tools for SCORM/AICC tracking with an LMS.<br /><br />&ldquo;The Raptivity library of prebuilt interactions is based on best practices in instructional design and allows complete customization of each interaction. The library of interaction models lets users build challenging brainteasers, compelling visuals and attractive presentation elements with ease.&rdquo;<br /><br />In August, HKP launched Raptivity Zest &mdash; a budget-priced but full-featured version of Raptivity with 12 instructionally sound interactions &mdash; which lowers the start-up costs for interactivity considerably.<br /><br />”We did not want to leave behind potential users of interactivity simply because of budget limitations,&rdquo; said Vikas Joshi, chairman and managing director of Harbinger Group. &ldquo;Raptivity Zest gets them up and running at low cost and helps them champion rapid interactivity in their organizations.&rdquo;<br /><br />&ldquo;This move is part of Trainer1&rsquo;s policy of providing U.K.-based businesses with a range of the world&rsquo;s best software tools related to corporate learning and business performance,&rdquo; Lasher continued. &ldquo;This ensures that we provide our clients with the quality and the choice of product that they need in order to enhance their competitive advantage.&rdquo;<br /><br />Recently, Trainer1 has signed partnership agreements with Epiance, maker of Epiplex500; Harbinger Knowledge Products, maker of Raptivity; and SumTotal Systems, to distribute the Toolbook e-learning authoring tool. This is in addition to Trainer1&rsquo;s reseller agreements with U.S.-based Trivantis, maker of the Lectora authoring tool and CourseMill learning management system, and the Australian firm, whose SWiSHmax software allows users to significantly reduce the time it takes to build Macromedia Flash files.<br /><br />In addition to distributing these products, Trainer1 is also establishing first-line support facilities for its clients. Lasher commented, &ldquo;That way, you don&rsquo;t have to wait for California or India to &lsquo;come online&rsquo; before you can get an answer to your problem.&rdquo; </p>
