ITWorx announces that its popular content authoring tool, AuthorExpert™, has been recently purchased by GEMS Education for implementation across its schools in UAE. AuthorExpert was created by ITWorx to allow teachers to create rich, interactive online lessons with minimum time and cost, and virtually no learning curve.

AuthorExpert provides easy-to-use templates in which teachers can generate original interactive teaching materials, or embed Microsoft Office Word documents or PowerPoint presentations, to create stimulating e-lessons. Teachers can also integrate images and multimedia files, such as video, flash animations and audio narration.

A selection of seven question formats, which include multiple choice, true or false, fill-in the blanks and graphical gap matching, allows teachers to provide students with dynamic self-assessments as part of each e-lesson. Assessment questions are stored online in the Question Bank and the teacher can allocate points for each correct answer.

Teachers have the flexibility to define the structure of the e-lesson and to allow students to access the teaching materials sequentially and non-sequentially, enabling students to work at their own pace and to return and review previous information in the e-lesson if required. AuthorExpert supports any two languages simultaneously, including Arabic, in a single set-up. Its output is compliant with SCORM 2004 global standards and tested against Microsoft SLK and the most widely used virtual learning environments. Following Microsoft Office 2007 guidelines it provides teachers with a familiar and intuitive user interface which enables them to use AuthorExpert with a virtually zero learning curve.

Manoj Varghese, Director of IT, GEMS Education explains: “GEMS’ strategy has always been to revolutionise the provision of education through the pioneering use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). We are sure AuthorExpert would bring significant advantages for our students and teachers.”

Hatem Sallam, Education General Manager, from ITWorx adds: “The development and implementation of AuthorExpert is part of a successful long-term partnership between ITWorx and GEMS, which draws on both company’s extensive experience as providers of educational solutions.”

Since 2008, ITWorx and GEMS have collaborated on developing pioneering solutions, setting new benchmarks in e-learning and student collaboration, such as the GEMS Learning Gateway (GLG) and Live[.]edu suite of hosted Microsoft services. GLG was rolled out across GEMS Education schools in the UAE. The combination of GEMS’ expertise in international education, with ITWorx proven abilities in developing educational software solutions, provides a foundation for innovative and robust e-learning programmes.
