With the increase in the use of technology for training, learners want to access their content on the devices they already use, at the time they want, and custom to their specific needs. To meet these new requirements and as a continuance of their reputation as a leader, Xyleme, Inc. has released an updated version of Xyleme LCMS, which provides substantial improvements in the areas of usability and output formats.
As Xyleme continues to focus on the ability to support personalization, the update to LCMS 3.7 provides organizations the ability to build their own classification vocabularies as it relates to their specific business. This is especially important with the increase in focus on personalization because it allows users the ability to build a single-source of XML content that can be dynamically assembled, based on individual learner requirements and delivered on any device and at the moment they need it.
“Consumers demand their learning be personalized, and as a result, the content must change from one size fits all, monolithic courses, to small nuggets of content in a granular format that are able to be configured on the fly to meet individual requirements,” commented Jeff Katzman, CLO and Founder at Xyleme. “Adapting to this methodology will be the key to competitive advantage and keeping valuable employees in the future.”
Other highlights of Xyleme LCMS 3.7 exhibit Xyleme’s full support and use of the agile process and include customer-driven features including :
•Microsoft Word Output - Publish content in Word format. Design is defined through your own Word Templates. This output is in addition to the already available PDF format.
•Improved PowerPoint Output - Includes support for slide transitions, equations, formulas and hyperlinks.
•Redesign of User Management - More efficient and simpler management of numerous users and groups.
Other features include embedding external video content like YouTube or Vimeo videos, glossary and cross-reference support in ePub outputs and the new Hot Text question type.
Attendees at a recent demo shared our positive sentiment with comments like, “This is really neat and a great way for Instructional Designers to save time and money when designing materials for courses” and “my head is spinning with all sorts of ideas of how this could help make us more efficient and able to keep our content updated.”
