Raptivity (Rapid + interactivity) is an eLearning interactivity building tool with a set of pre-built interaction models. [1] [2] Raptivity is used to create interactions which can be added to eLearning content, enabling interactive learning.[3][4] Raptivity has been designed and developed by Harbinger Knowledge Products.[5]

Raptivity has a pre-built library of about 180 games, surveys, simulations, 3D objects, virtual world interactions, videos – interactions based on best practices in instructional design.[6] It is used to publish the interactions as Flash (SWF) files - to be used as stand-alone learning spots or added to a course built with another authoring tool.[7][8] Course creators can create and add learning interaction models in Flash and HTML5 format using Raptivity.[9] Courses with HTML5 interaction models can play on iPhone and iPad devices.[10]

Raptivity is available commercially either as a perpetual license or an annual license.

Raptivity was first launched in January 2006.[11] The further versions of Raptivity have been 5.0 (May 2008),[12] 5.6 (June 2010),[13] 6.0 (August 2010),[14] [15] 6.5 (June 2011) and 7.0 (November 2011).

Raptivity Linker is a new tool from Harbinger Knowledge Products. Raptivity Linker allows users to string together standalone Raptivity interactions and create short interactive learning modules, also called as Learning Arcs.[16] Raptivity Linker, launched in March 2014, is currently in its beta stage and free for all Raptivity users. Users need to have Raptivity installed to be able to use the edit functionality of Raptivity Linker.
