Yes! Using PocketLearn tools you can create titles with a variety
of license types ranging from "free" to "commercial". You can submit
the titles that you create to the pocketLearn.com web site, where

for downloading. If you really want to make it easy for yourself and
your customers, you can use PocketLearn's PocketPay program to receive
payment for any of your titles sold through the PocketLearn web site.
Your investment of time and knowledge to create titles results in
something of value. If you're an educator, for example, it's a great
way to earn revenue for yourself or your educational institution.
- Can I really develop and distribute PocketLearn
titles for free?
Yes. Just download the free TDK. Keep in mind that using the TDK may
be somewhat challenging for users that are unfamiliar with software
technologies such as XML and HTML. For most people, we strongly recommend
using Flash Card Studio for content creation.
