Announcing Lectora 16 with Responsive Course Design


Responsive Course Design™ (RCD) is here for Lectora® desktop! We’re excited to announce the new Lectora 16 with RCD for mobile course development.

If you haven’t heard the buzz about Responsive Course Design yet, here’s the scoop. RCD in Lectora is unique because you only have to design once, in the desktop layout. Content in the desktop view is automatically responsively positioned and sized for landscape and portrait views on tablets and phones.

RCD means that it’s now easier and faster to design mobile courses. John Blackmon, Trivantis CTO, says, “It’s a multi-device world we live in, and Trivantis is bringing you the tools you need to produce eLearning content for all of them. With Lectora, you can truly publish once, and distribute everywhere.”
