Can I create quizzes and exams that are automatically graded?
Yes. The powerful exam system lets you create exams with multiple choice, true/false, multiple answer and short answer/essay questions. Exams are automatically graded (multiple choice,true false, multiple answer), and a PDF or HTML certificate is created and e-mailed automatically if desired.

We can also help you to convert PowerPoint slide presentations to Flash and/or HTML 5.

Why is CourseWebs so much less expensive than _______.com's Learning Management System?
Philosophy, efficiency, flexibility. CourseWebs recognizes a niche of education consultants that cannot afford or aren't served by other LMS vendors. Rates are low for these lower volume providers. As companies grow, we can provide additional services to grow simultaneously. Flexible pricing means you don't have to pay for extras such as bandwidth, storage, and customization if you don't need them.
What about Non-English Languages?
CourseWebs supports multiple languages within the same installation. Currently we have translations for English, Spanish, French, and Romanian. Please contact us to add a language.
What about SCORM?
CourseWebs is a SCORM compliant learning management system. You can import SCORM 2004 (or previous) courses and launch them from the LMS. We have found that SCORM requirements can vary a lot, so please contact us to discuss your project.
