Unicorn Training is marking its return to Learning Technologies this year with the official launch of its new integrated authoring tool eCreator. Visitors to the Unicorn stand will also be able to discover why Unicorn's learning and performance platform, SkillsServe, was ranked in the World’s top 10 in the LMS Mid-Year 2014 Report.

Unicorn Training returns to Learning Technologies at Olympia on 28-29 January. With a number of clients having already successfully adopted Unicorn’s new user-friendly, flexible integrated authoring tool over the past few months, Learning Technologies marks eCreator’s official launch to market.

Unicorn will also be celebrating the fifth birthday of its award-winning learning and performance platform SkillsServe with the release of SkillsServe 5.0. SkillsServe was ranked in the World’s top 10 Learning Management Systems in the LMS Mid-Year 2014 Report, compiled by industry guru Craig Weiss.

eCreator is built into SkillsServe and breaks the mould in users being able to produce graphically-rich, interactive content simply and at minimal cost.

Fully tablet compatible, with the ability to create, edit, deliver and study content on Apple and Android tablets as well as PCs, eCreator meets the increasing demand for firms to be able to create and publish quality learning content more easily, and for in-company subject matter experts to be able to edit and update content directly.

Amongst the companies already using eCreator to create and deliver mobile-ready courses are the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), Tesco Bank, Insurance Institute of Ireland (III).

Some of the things being said about eCreator... 'The eCreator has already brought huge improvements in our productivity as well as professional quality results that add value to our student support. We’re very impressed with the new tool.' 'The graphics and whole look is brilliant. Very engaging to the eye.' 'It looks really good, impressive.'

Meanwhile SkillsServe 5.0 includes two major changes. There is a new catalogue and content manager, combined to make it easier to build programmes, and diagnostic assessments, enabling administrators to generate assessments from programmes automatically, with users only having to complete learning for areas not passed.


Unicorn Training is on stand 95, marked with pink balloons, at Learning Technologies 2015, 28-29 January, Olympia, London. Anyone visiting the Unicorn stand over the two days will have the chance to win a champagne balloon ride.
