SoftChalk is an incredibly useful tool for creating dynamic content for deploying on the web, in a Learning Management System, CD-ROM and a myriad of other ways. The best thing about this tool is the ease of use. Essentially if you know how to use a word processor you can use SoftChalk. Although it isn't really fair to compare it to a word processor because it does so much more. It has a large number of interactive activities (like crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, flash cards, etc...) that you can quickly add to your document. In addition to the activities you can search across multiple content repositories (YouTube, Flickr, MERLOT, etc...) and quickly insert the content into your document. A good example of the kind of document you can create with SoftChalk is Tacoma Community College's New Student Orientation.
