Author-it 5.0 is the first content management system to include interactive authoring memory. This memory product feature will be known as Author-it Xtend.

Using intelligent “fuzzy logic” matching, this new feature makes all of the approved knowledge/content contained in a company’s database available to content creators, eliminating the need to perform a time-consuming manual search. In fact, studies conducted by several industry experts have indicated that knowledge workers spend up to 35 percent of their time searching for information.

The concept behind Author-it Xtend is that it automates the re-use of content and places the knowledge of an organization at the fingertips of all users — when they need it. Once a user begins typing, matching or similar content is located and returned instantly — even if he or she is unaware that the content exists.

Suggestions can be revealed in as few as three words and in a fraction of a second. Users can choose to instantly insert any of the suggestions, see what documents those suggestions currently appear in, or continue typing to refine the suggestions. The reuse of content not only saves time and money in content production and localization (translation), it ensures that consistent messages are conveyed in both a company’s external and internal communications.

NetOp software helps instructors teach, allowing them to review work on a student’s computer on the other side of the class and show them how to complete an assignment or send them hints using instant messaging. With the software’s test center, instructors can easily put together grade tests and exams online.

The software also allows teachers to share any screen with the rest of the class, freeze a student’s mouse, or turn controls overt to a student for a demonstration. NetOp also allows the teacher to send messages to a student to make sure he or she stays focused instead of using the computer for online games or inappropriate browsing during class time.
