As more and more schools, colleges and universities migrate to online learning management systems, the tools for creating lessons, assignments and curriculum have changed. No matter what LMS your school, college or university is using, the idea was to make things easier and more streamlined. However, that’s not always the case.

Some schools are using a variety of systems other systems have a variety of parameters that can lead to a headache when trying to create content. Blackboard strives to keep the student at the center of learning and so do all of their partners. In fact when a new partner joins forces with Blackboard they make sure that students and learning are up front and foremost.

That’s the same ethos behind SoftChalk. SoftChalk is a creation platform that allows teachers, professors and other educators to create rich media lessons, assignments and curriculum. They want teachers to be able to focus on creating educational content and teaching. Not trying to figure out how to upload their latest course materials to an LMS.

SoftChalk Cloud is the easiest way to create and update lessons and assignments for cloud based distribution to students via an LMS. SoftChalk makes it easy for teachers to create interactive, online course materials and then upload it to any LMS in one click. If for some reason your teaching the same material across multiple LMS’ it’s still just a one click process. Then, unlike other creation tools, SoftChalk makes it just as easy to share the same materials outside of your school’s LMS.
