The authoring tool INDIeAuthor is the first Intellectual Output of the INDie Project. It was developed and is being maintained at the Digital Content Production Center (in Spanish CPCD) of the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena. INDIeAuthor is an innovative tool which allows authors with no programming knowledge to, after a simple training, produce rich digital content for online publication. INDIeAuthor acts as a proxy to create HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript5 based documents and includes different components that can be used out of the box by the authors: gamification module (definition of badges, points and leaderboards) and a learning analytics module (teachers and parents can monitor the interaction of the students with the learning units).
