The client is a leading educational publisher and provides content, assessment, and digital services to learners, educational institutions, governments, and other partners globally.
The client used an authoring tool that couldn’t scale up to meet the needs of immersive digital content. The tool wasn’t being adopted due to its slow user experience. As a result, authoring took place on 3rd party tools like MS Word, Adobe, or Indesign.Importing these to the authoring tool lead to a delay in the production cycle.
