Surveys, smile sheets and feedback forms are now readily available in the new release. As with other interactivity models, these are customized easily, without programming.

Elicitus Interactivity Builder 2.0 provides an entirely new set of possibilities for content presentation. Course developers can easily synchronize text and narration, create flipbooks, or provide simple animation.

"Elicitus Interactivity Builder has yet again busted the myth that developing highly interactive content is expensive and time-consuming," said Vikas Joshi, Chairman and Managing Director, Harbinger Group. He added: "With the launch of Interactivity Builder, we introduced the concept of Rapid Interactivity Authoring. Course developers world-wide have loved it. With this release, our mission is to elevate the learner's engagement in learning to a level of total involvement."

With the new release, course developers can quickly and intuitively find the right interactivity model that fits their needs. They can not only search using keywords, but also organize their favorite interactivity models for easy access in the future.

Worldwide, hundreds of users are using Elicitus Interactivity Builder's highly-intuitive Example Based Interactivity Design (EBID) methodology. They start working off an example and customize the interactivity to suit their requirement. A significant enhancement with Interactivity Builder 2.0 now even allows users to start working off their own examples. This leverages any existing customization and avoids the duplication of effort.

"Elicitus Interactivity Builder continues providing a good blend of instructionally sound interactivity models and a strong technology platform. With this release, customers can realize significant new benefits to in both areas," adds Seema Chaudhary, Director, Business Development from USA.

"I would really have to think hard to come up with something not in the library already", says a beta user, "and it is a relief to know I don't have to reach for my flash programming tools every time I need interactivity."
