Tacoma Community College Selects SoftChalk Cloud for Content AuthoringPosted July 31, 2012 in News, Press Releases
Tacoma, Washington — July 31, 2012 — Tacoma Community College today announces it has transitioned to SoftChalk Cloud, a content authoring platform designed to make it easier for instructors to create and share media-rich learning content. SoftChalk Cloud is the latest content authoring and learning object repository product from award-winning eLearning software provider SoftChalk, LLC.
Tacoma Community College (TCC) began using SoftChalk content authoring software in 2010 to easily create content that worked with any learning management system (LMS), while enhancing students’ online learning experience. With SoftChalk, faculty created a variety of assessment types, integrated content from eLearning repositories and designed content to be mobile-friendly. SoftChalk Cloud preserves these features, while making it easier and more convenient to share and create powerful content.
“With SoftChalk Cloud, I think faculty will really enjoy the integration with Canvas, so student scores can be tracked in the LMS, and the ability to easily share their content with colleagues,” says Andy Duckworth, eLearning Director at TCC. “Students benefit from having rich course content that is seamlessly integrated into their online courses.”
SoftChalk Cloud is the world’s first complete, educator-friendly content authoring platform in the cloud. This comprehensive product allows educators to create content in the cloud, seamlessly share it with their colleagues and retain their content even if their school switches to a new LMS.
