Online Course Review for Courses in Development

Rapid Intake, the guys who gave us ProForm and Unison, announced its new online collaborative course review software, called REVIEW™, that allows any course developer to post a course online and collect and manage course review feedback and comments.

The reason I will use the program is its ability to load courses for review that have been developed with different types of e-Learning programs such as Articulate Presenter, Captivate and other Flash-based training.

The actual review process rocks. Imagine being able to have reviewers make comments on a specific slide without having to pop back and forth between the course and a review document! REVIEW™ tracks feedback notes, threaded comments, attachments, alerts, and more in one centralized location. It even automatically captures information about the reviewer, where the reviewer was in the course when the feedback was submitted, and relevant system information, such as the web browser and operating system

I tested the product by uploading an Articulate Presenter course packed for SCORM 1.2. The course loaded quickly and I was able to access it immediately to make review notes. I also tested a course without any LMS files - the course loaded with no problems and worked as promised.
