If you have used content management systems before, you may know the power of information architecture and reusing words and content to build guides, templates, instructions, and more. “Paligo is an end-to-end CCMS (Component Content Management System) solution for technical documentation, policies and procedures, knowledge management, and more” (Paligo).
In Paligo’s latest newsletter, “What’s New in Paligo” they have introduced a beta version of an eLearning output. This means that eLearning may be moving to a more consistent, structured, reusable format with variables to adapt to any course. With Paligo, the content you create can be published as a PDF, Word Document, or eLearning course. With the tremendous amount of work it takes to update content and keep courses and course materials updated, Paligo works to make this easier. With Content Management systems like Paligo, content can be changed once, and then updated everywhere. In addition, formatting can be changed once, and it too is updated everywhere. You do not need to play around with margins, sizing, and animations. Layouts are created and updated as needed, and they are applied to all of your content.
I believe Content Management Systems like Paligo will allow instructional designers, educators, and more to focus on creating great content and instructions.
