Harbinger Knowledge Products’ leading software product, Raptivity, enables instructors to easily create highly interactive eLearning content, including games, simulations, 3D objects, videos and even “virtual worlds” that bring traditional subjects like history, science and mathematics to life.
“Harbinger’s software makes learning much more fun and interesting for students and employees, which in turn helps them learn more easily,” said Redmond resident Seema Chaudhary, president of Harbinger Knowledge Products, which has an office in downtown Redmond. “Additionally, the software is easy for instructors to use. They don’t have to be software programmers or designers. Teachers simply follow one of hundreds of templates to create their own, customized interactive program.”
