Award-winning eLearning Authoring Tool

Our eLearning authoring tool is included with Thinkzoom, our learning management system, at no additional charge. Create your own courses or customize our off-the-shelf videos with our recording tool.


First, you must download the recording tool. Don’t worry, it is a quick installation.

Recording is simple. Click record, wait for the countdown, and record. You have three options with the recording tool:

  • Record just the screen with voiceover. The mouse is highlighted with a yellow circle to enhance the demo and screen activity. You can define the area of your desktop you want to record (for example, to hide your browser tabs.)
  • Record both the screen plus webcam video. You can move the webcam video window to any location on the screen. You can also size the webcam window.
  • Or, you can record just the webcam video.

Additional Recording Features Include:

  • Pause, review, and continue recording
  • Add a title and description that will be searchable in our LMS
  • Add music
  • Edit narration/audio
    • Remove background noise
    • Make volume louder or quieter
    • Can export audio or import other audio

Your next step is the fun part! Editing! Our authoring tool comes with all of the modern editing features you expect. All are color coded so you can easily manage your editing process.

Many of our clients were paying for a separate eLearning authoring tool. When you buy our content, you also get Thinkzoom, our learning management system, for free! And yes, that also includes our award-winning authoring tool.

Do you have concerns about the implementation time? Hear from one of our clients who spent nine months unsuccessfully trying to implement their LMS. It took less than a month with us.

Our learning consultants will work with you each step of the way to ensure a smooth and quick implementation. You can get a head start with our LMS implementation guide.

The first step is to sign up for a full-featured, full library, free trial of our Thinkzoom LMS. Full-featured means you have access to 100% of our functionality including the eLearning authoring tool!
