Introduction: Using standard authoring tools is essential to promote E-Learning in teaching-learning process. Learning content in medical sciences often consists of multimedia elements. On the other hand, it is frequently required to revise and update the medical content. Hence, access to the authoring tools that can encompass multimedia elements and allow easy content revision is helpful in e-learning promotion in medical sciences. In this paper, a standard interactive multimedia content authoring tool, developed by the authors after many investigations is introduced. Current authoring tools do not meet all the content qualifications and few of them are available as open source. Therefore, we aimed to produce an interactive multimedia content authoring tool that could be open source, feasible, and able to be updated or modified. In addition to providing the standard content, this engine allows knowledge management that could be enriched as technology progresses. To develop this engine, characteristics such as “component based architecture”, “exploiting the SCORM and IMS standards”, and providing the content both in online and offline modes were considered. Some parts of the learning content created in medical sciences have been provided as a sample.
