Excellent tool for 90% of our development needs

2018-02-07

it provided me with the avenue to implemented e-learning for my organization

Pros

The integration with the LMS is an added bonus feature. It provides and often times exceeds the development needs for most programming.

Cons

Since I do focus on the administrator role of the software it is difficult to crtique functionality. It performs well.

I reviewed many others authoring tools, and I found this was a great one and FREE!

2017-08-07

Can start a course free and get to know the product without spending a dime.

Pros

I love that one can start creating courses free. It is great that is cloud based so our team can work together building the course.

Cons

Support is terrible. Don't have a community forum. I have problems with special characters (like á, é, í... etc) they don't show in some screens. I asked for support, and still waiting for answer.

A lot of functinality for the price

2014-09-11

I came to Udutu with ZERO experience in creating an online course. I'm a retired English teacher and I just wanted a platform to offer some writing instruction for the students I tutor (in other words, I'm a very small fish in a very small pool).

Thanks for you comments Dolly! We appreciate you using Udutu!

We've recently added our "Assist U" button to the authoring tool which will have a continually growing number of topics and processes which 'walk' users through the tool/process. Already the feedback is that these are very helpful -particularly for newer users. We also launched an FAQ site (faq.udutu.com) where there's an ever expanding amount of information to be obtained about out tools and services. As with any tool, there is a learning curve but we hope that these two approaches will help users like yourself to get rolling even faster than before! Thanks again!

Hi David, Thanks very much for your input and suggestions. The "Retake" issue is something we will look into. As the translated versions of the LMS are limited to the display text at this time, Making a functional text dynamically change for all the language variations may prove difficult to implement. We will certainly look into it and change if possible.

A learner view is a good idea. I agree and will suggest it to our development team.

Thanks again for using Udutu!

I use it for multi tasking,and preparation for starting,and finishing my books I write.I plan on using it to create online courses on art,writing,and motivational speaking.

Pros

I like it because it allows me to create my own courses,and since I am a writer,and artist I can use it for multi tasking

It does take patience to do anything,but it takes a while to get the job completely done
