Lectora is an Electronic learning (e-learning) development tool released by Trivantis Corporation in 1999. Lectora is used to create online training courses, assessments, and presentations. It is also used for the conversion of Microsoft PowerPoint presentations into e-learning content. It is a proprietary software which needs to be purchased. No free version is available though only 30 days trial is available for the users.

In 2000, Lectora became the first AICC-certified authoring system on the market. This achievement gave Lectora the credibility it needed to gain acceptance in the elearning industry.Although Lectora was created to enable non-programmers to develop elearning content, recent versions of the product also include advanced features for experienced users.


  • It provides single-click publishing to Web-ready dynamic HTML, CD, single file executable, SCORM, and AICC learning standards without the need for programming knowledge.
  • It includes an internal content management system that makes course creation easy for the average computer user.
  • It enables users to create tests and surveys using any combination of true/false, multiple choice, matching, hot spot, drag and drop, essay, and short answer formats. Test results can be submitted via email, CGI script, XML, SCORM, AICC or LRN standards-compliant learning management systems.
  • Lectora’s Actions Palette enables users to create interactive learning objects using show and hide functionality, mouseovers, object visibility toggling, and more to engage learners with onscreen activities. Users can incorporate Variable Knowledge Objects with the Actions Palette to create branched learning scenarios for adaptive learning.
  • It has a set of automated tools, including Title Wizards, Spell Check, Automated Menu Builder and Reference Lists.
