What is iorad?
iorad is a learning activity available in Northpass’ course builder that makes creating and sharing interactive product tutorials easy. This new integration with iorad allows product-focused educators to create step-by-step, interactive tutorials in a matter of minutes, thereby saving time, resources, and money when trying to teach someone how to use an application or feature.
How does it work?
iorad product tutorials can be quickly created for virtually any online process or application within Northpass’ Course Builder. Once Northpass administrators go through the motions of recording their tutorial, iorad automatically captures everything they do and delivers a fully customized tutorial that they can share in their courses.
With these 3 quick steps, product-focused educators can create step-by-step, interactive tutorials:
Capture: iorad doesn't just record your screen; it records what you do and how you do it. Then, it provides you with a suite of customization options that let you add final touches. For example, Auto-generated step text, masked data, and instant voiceovers.
Share: iorad’s in-app learning functionality lets you deliver help to your users within their Northpass academy and courses.
Learn: iorad enables you to tailor tutorials based on user preferences. Once you've created a tutorial, users will be able to access it in various desktop and mobile formats, including video, list, and slides, and even practice each step interactively.
How to install iorad?
iorad can be installed as an extension to your browser. Currently, it’s supported in the following browsers:
Go to the Extensions market in your browser, type iorad in search, and click “Add to extensions” - it’s that simple!
You can also use a desktop version of your browser that is not on the list. There is no difference in working with iorad.
