eLearning Authoring System Developed for Omgeo By Bridgeline Software

August 26, 2004

Authoring tool allows Omgeo staff to create customized web-based training programs for employees and customers

Boston, MA. August 26, 2004 - Bridgeline Software announced today that it has developed an eLearning authoring system for Omgeo, the leading provider of post and pre-settlement trade management solutions. This easy to use solution is a thin application that combines dynamic logic and layout templates with learning interactions to produce web based interactive training for employees and clients. The advantage of Bridgeline's solution lies in its versatility to deploy anywhere in the organization without being limited by technology requirements. The user can focus on creating content while the navigation and layout handle themselves, running on a different server if need be.

Working closely with Omgeo, Bridgeline built a custom application that allows the internal staff to create topic-based learning programs, displaying up to 20 topics with an equal number of sub-topics and up to 14 pages per sub-topic. The four flexible templates include numerous sections containing resources, glossary, help and feedback with a total capacity of nearly 1300 pages providing unlimited capability to add documents, resources, and links appropriate for the training course.

The program consists of 18 layout templates including 1 or 2 columns, wide and half-screen slide shows and more. The solution has been optimized for use with Dreamweaver MX 2004 for content authoring and includes Dreamweaver Extensions to customize the Dreamweaver authoring environment allowing ‘drag-and-drop’ access to functions such as tool tips and floating information panels.

There are four learning interaction templates in all including ‘drag and drop’ and multiple choice. The Learning Interactions are built on Macromedia CourseBuilder Extensions that has the capability to send results to an AICC-compliant Learning Management System (CMI) such as Lotus LearningSpace.
