What do you like best?
SoftChalk Cloud is by far the easiest and the most flexible way to create and manage online course content that can also be LMS-independent. Educators do not need to obtain or learn any computer/web programming skills in order to create both interactive learning content that can be easily integrated into their online courses.
What do you dislike?
The major disadvantage towards using Softchalk Cloud is that it requires a Java-based app to in order to create and edit content. Although, this allows content to be viewed on multiple platforms (Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, etc), the required use of Java slows down the application's overall performance and has even caused several software crashes.
