Authoring Tools

The Fosway Group 9-Grid™ report for authoring tools is a multi-dimensional model that can be used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers in the UK/European authoring tool and learning content management market. It allows you to compare different solutions based on their Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectories across the market.

The overall market is still dominated by desktop authoring tools, with collaborative and LCMS tools in a distinct minority. Adoption of SaaS-based authoring solutions is generally the exception, rather than the rule.  Authoring tool choices are frequently still dictated by instructional design features, rather than overall production efficiency and scalability. As a result, this is an area of learning technology that often doesn’t receive the strategic consideration it deserves!
