Introducing ReviewLink 1.0 for Collaborative e-Learning Review

Take your e-Learning course review process to new heights with the easiest and most robust online course review tool, ReviewLinkTM 1.0. Releasing today, ReviewLink 1.0 simplifies and enhances the entire e-Learning review cycle from initial course development to the final review. With the streamlined ability to publish and review online training titles to the cloud, ReviewLink 1.0 is a practical and convenient way for team members to work collaboratively, anytime and anywhere.

The ReviewLink 1.0 review cycle is simple and intuitive:

  • Initiate the review cycle by simultaneously sharing your Lectora® titles with your team via email invitations, while publishing your titles directly to ReviewLink
  • Reviewers leave edits and comments on individual pages within the presentation, making it easy for the author to make changes and edits to the title based on comments and feedback left by reviewers
  • Communicate fluidly and keep your team updated throughout the entire cycle of the review process by tracking the status of comments, edits and republished tiles. Authors mark edits as “fixed” to notify reviewers that their comments have been addressed
  • Reviewers confirm that the author’s updates address their comments and concerns to complete the review cycle

Following the ReviewLink Beta, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from clients who believe this tool fills a void in the e-Learning market for easy and quick course review. During this beta, we collected feedback and requests and have just added the following new updates:
