Sprout Sprout is a new way to produce interactive content online. Here is what they say at their site:

How It Works

“With Sprout, you can create sophisticated and dynamic interactive content with sprout in three steps, as follows:”

BUILD

“Building a sprout is easy. Choose from dozens of pre-built templates or start from scratch. Drag-and-drop shapes, text, images, video, and more. Then add components such as slideshows, jukeboxes, and countdown clocks, as well as interactive services such as chat (Meebo), phone (Ribbit), fundraising (ChipIn), and more. Once you’ve got your content in place, use advanced editing and navigation tools to perfect your sprout.”

PUBLISH

“Publishing your sprout is easy, too! Just click “publish” and then cut and paste your sprout code into any Web page, or use the “quick post” feature to automatically place your sprout into blogs and social networking sites. For more advanced options, publish your sprout via any of our distribution partners, including Clearspring, Gigya, and Spring Widgets.”

MANAGE

“Once your sprout is published, your audience can copy and spread it to their Web pages and communities. You can then track usage stats such as how many copies were made, how many times your sprout was viewed, and more. You can also edit your Sprout, and ALL copies of your sprout will be instantly updated! Add or change content as needed to keep your audience engaged and informed.”

MISSION STATEMENT

“Sprout’s mission is to make it quick and easy for anyone to build sophisticated multimedia web content.”
