The «Anywhere, Anytime, Anyway» slogan is frequently associated to e-learning with the aim to emphasize the wide access offered by on-line education to students. Our aim is to extend the reach of this sentence to content authors as well. Our idea is to produce tools to simplify drastically the task of creating, updating and publishing content for e-learning courses, and to allow them to produce learning objects of extremely high technical sophistication directly from off-the-shelf desktop application. Thus we introduce ISA-BeL, a conversion engine that can generate standard-based, visually homogeneous, accessible and graphically sophisticated SCORM learning objects by analyzing the internal structure and content of word processing fi les and generating the required output without requiring particular technical awareness by the user.
