The leading learning and mobile content management solution provider, Giunti Labs, is showcasing learn eXact Enterprise, the newest version of its learning content management system (LCMS), at this year’s CeBIT, the IT and telecommunications fair in Hanover, Germany.
Andrea Gentili, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Giunti Labs, explained:
“Within learn eXact Enterprise, one server manages the client’s different communities, dividing them into different domains, and allows users access on an enterprise level or a project-by-project basis. This fits well with some of the key topics at this year’s CeBIT – not least the trend towards digitisation and mobility, which is changing the way we use the media and leading to new business models and markets.
“With learn eXact Enterprise, changes in learning content are tracked to save and ensure consistency; while learner data can be sent to managers or fed into ERP systems. Reports related to course activity, enrolment and course access/monitoring are fully configurable and can be delivered via dedicated portal within the Enterprise application or over the client’s corporate portal,” he added.
The LCMS, which is highly scalable – both in ‘vertical’ and ‘horizontal’ terms – is entirely SOA-based allowing services to be activated, de-activated or swapped with client-preferred services without impacting on overall platform performance.
This allows organisations to both extend the system’s functions, as required, and protect their investment by having a ‘future-proof’ LCMS.
learn eXact Enterprise has been created to support all aspects of management of the process and the contents for distant learning in an organisation.
In particular, it has been designed to be ‘non-disruptive’ to any existing corporate systems, and to maximise existing corporate knowledge banks.
“Those using learn eXact Enterprise should experience more flexible workflow, while also gaining benefits from product features which make editing content, user roles and so on easier,” commented Fabrizio Cardinali, Giunti Labs’ CEO. “Users can also export data in XML format via web services.
“At the core of the LCMS is the ‘domains, users, rules, permissions’ module – known as DURP – which ‘structures’ the LCMS, allowing it to respond to complex user scenarios and also allowing users to structure and personalise the system,” he continued.
“This allows the LCMS to continue to be relevant as, over time, individuals take on new roles within the organisation as their competence and skill sets develop.”
As with any Giunti Labs’ system, learn eXact Enterprise’s authoring application works well with learning standards, such as SCORM 1.2, SCORM 2004, AICC and IMS.
To simplify the authoring procedure, learn eXact Enterprise includes a set of pre-loaded learning object models (LOMs). These LOMs enable instructional designers and authors to program complex templates in their preferred scripting language – such as XSL, Flash, Java, or C#.
