To create a proper course for E-learning content, you need an authoring tool to facilitate this work. The definition of Authoring Tool is “a program that helps you write using hypertext or multimedia applications and enable you to create a final application merely by linking together objects, such as a paragraph of text, an illustration, Animation, Audio or Video”. By defining the objects' relationships to each other, and by sequencing them in an appropriate order, authors (those who use authoring tools) can produce attractive and useful graphics applications.

In this unit, you will learn a open source Course authoring tool called Udutu.
