Nonsensical quiz maker

Don't waste time on this clunky and unintuitive program.

In theory, Advanced eLearning Builder allows users to create quizzes, tutorials, and other electronic learning tools. In practice, the program is a confusing jumble of features that left us unable to create even a single page of a quiz.

The program's interface is both unattractive and unintuitive. Users can select from a variety of templates, including those for multiple choice, true/false, and fill in the blank exercises. Although they're not pretty, the templates seem like a nice idea, until you realize that it's seemingly impossible to edit the templates and actually insert your content. We tried clicking various buttons on the toolbar, we consulted the Help file, and we never did figure it out. The program's options just don't make any sense, and the Help file does absolutely nothing to explain them. To add further annoyance, the program runs only in full screen, making it extra irritating to switch back and forth between the program and the Help file. The entire thing is poorly designed, and we can't be sure whether it works or not; if so, it has a lot of explaining to do.

Advanced eLearning Builder is free to try, but the trial version has limited functionality. We have no idea if these limitations are what made it so difficult for us to edit the templates; the specifics are never discussed. The program installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We do not recommend this program; there are more intuitive and attractive options out there.
