Enhanced Media library

This is a centralized repository for all your account assets.

The Media library also allows you to replace assets with a new one across all of the Projects it has been used in, keeping content up to date.

Variations manager

Authoring controls


See all your changes as you make them with the easy to use “what you see is what you get” interface in Author mode and Layout Designer.

'Get started' project builder

Create a new course with multiple pages in our quick three-step project builder.

Course duplication

Create duplicates of Projects.

Course gifting

Share copies of projects with different Elucidat accounts.

Default templates

Use predesigned page templates out of the box, or adapt them using Layout Designer.


A Part is an element that your page is built up from; for example, you can have a Video Part or a Text Part. Parts enable a modular way of working, so you can work quickly to build unique page types to meet your needs.

Attached resources

Import downloadable resources (PDFs, images, media, etc.) to a project and link them directly to course content, even reusing them across multiple courses.

Single course, responsive authoring

Projects are automatically formatted to work responsively so you can use a single project on multiple devices.

Live device preview

Preview how your project will look and behave for learners across different screen sizes, from mobile to desktop.

Social polling

Capture and play back data to show learners how their answers compare to their peers’ using graphs and reports.


Personalize the learning experience by pulling in the learner’s name, score, previous text input and more into your content.

Layout designer

Create your own page layouts using an easy to use WYSIWYG interface, and save custom page templates.

Mobile responsive editor

Hide, show, change, resize or re-position media and images based on different screen sizes.

Page transitions

Use animated effects such as ‘Fade’, ‘Pulse’, ‘Flip’ and more to transition between pages.

Input boxes

Allow learners to give input in free text boxes. Responses are captured in Analytics and can be used as a Clip to display later in the course.


Add interactive Hotspots to open popup windows containing additional information and media. You can add these to images or launch them using buttons, text cards and image cards.

Flip Card Sets

Create a stack of flashcards that flip to reveal information and media.


Create interactive buttons, text cards and image cards instantly to either open popups with additional information or direct your learner to another page or external link.


Add a tooltip by highlighting any text for a mini pop-up tip.

Animate items

Add animation effects such as ‘bounce’, ‘flash’, ‘pulse’, ‘fade’ and more to Text and Media to make content more engaging.


Question pools

Create groups of question pages and display a random selection for each learner. This improves knowledge retention, as learners will be shown a fresh quiz each time, preventing them from simply learning the quiz rather than the content. Pools can also minimize cheating, as each learner will see a different quiz.

Require a Passing Score

Set a score that learners need to achieve before they can move to the next section.

Quiz results

Show learners their results using either an automatically generated Score Summary or a simple text Clip, which can display information such as the user’s score in any text box.

Lesson badges

Give different types of feedback beyond simple pass/fail. Choose to award badges or assign red flags depending on the learner’s actions.

360 feedback

Use our clips, branching and badges features to display layered feedback.


White label

Remove the Elucidat logo from the loading screen.

Discovery Center

Make your content more widely available, reaching audiences with multiple courses without LMS access.

Tracking and Reporting

Track which learners have started, completed and passed or failed each course in the Analytics Suite. Track SCORM releases from your LMS, and Online Link releases using the Learner Identification feature.

Export Courses for Web

The Online Link release mode will generate a unique URL for you to share with your team and learners, allowing them to access your course instantly.

Export Courses for LMS

The SCORM for LMS and Backup SCORM release modes will create a SCORM zip file. This will be emailed to you and will be ready to upload directly into your Learning Management System (LMS).

Export Courses for LRS

This function allows you to send information to an LRS using xAPI.

Export Courses for API

The API integration release mode allows you to use our API to request a time-limited link to launch your course online. This mode is most suitable for customers without an LMS/LRS, but who still need to keep content secure. This mode requires your team to have coding skills.

Rapid Releasing

Update courses that are already live on your LMS without needing to re-upload your SCORM file.
