ATLANTA, GA, February 20, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Atlantic Link is delighted to announce their win in the Rapid e-learning Publishing shootout at Training 2009
in Atlanta. Training Magazine and Bryan Chapman, Chief Learning Strategist, Chapman Alliance LLC, hosted the event.
For the shootout, audience members observed the power of real-time collaboration in rapid development. The teams in this part of the competition showed the audience how content coming from multiple sources could be quickly organized into production-ready courses.
In fact, the competitors imported learning activities created in the previous Shootout (held one day earlier) to augment their courses, successfully demonstrating interoperability among rapid content developers.
"Audience members indicated that what they liked most about the Atlantic Link solution, Content Point
was the visual interface for organizing course structures, the ability to bring in external content from tools such as Captivate and Raptivity, coupled with unique, internal tools for creating rapid content
directly inside the system," said Bryan Chapman of Chapman Alliance.
Atlantic Link's Managing Director Mike Alcock commented - "To win yet another shootout is a superb achievement. This is our third shootout win and our tenth award in the last few years, which is a great testament to the power and depth of our collaborative rapid e-learning software
"I'm sure it was the fact that we built the course live on a web server
and collaboratively added third party content - that won us the competition. We started from scratch and within 8 minutes the course was live on our web server. The course was built in less than 10 seconds using the quick start wizard. I uploaded PowerPoint, Captivate and Raptivity content directly into the course while my colleague Thom Tate (who was sat in the audience) added in YouTube video, a live webcam feed and a complete Rolling Stones mp3 file."
"Once the content was assembled, we published it using our Flash generation engine, in less than a tenth of a second, making it available to anyone with a web connection. Imagine trying to do that with a desktop e-learning tool. With a desktop tool... after 8 minutes the course would still be on an individual author's hard drive. Collaboration would be impossible and users would not see it until the author had used ftp to get the course onto a server."
"It's these unique capabilities that have allowed us to grow at 100% in the less than 12 months, and have driven the widespread adoption of our tools across the USA and Europe. Over 50 blue chip clients have selected Atlantic Link in the past 12 months, proving that we're the vendor of choice for collaborative rapid e-learning software
