Several companies have developed a course builder or creator tool to facilitate the process of creating an online course or training experience; however, the majority of existing tools do not include access to digital content. At Technology Based Learning and Research at Arizona State University, we developed web-based authoring tools to facilitate the re-engineering of digital content for eLearning environments developed through grant-funded projects. The course creator system (CCS) draws content from specialized databases and a digital video library. The system provides instructors or trainers with an interactive authoring tool to select content and activity elements to produce an eLearning course or training module. Digital content is available on mathematics, information technology (including Internetworking skills and computer literacy), and educational technology (e.g., classroom technology integration). CCS re-engineers existing content into an eLearning format to create a customized course or module for end-users.
