E-learning and interactive publishing

Our team has been developing interactive courses, tests and exercises since 1998, implementing in-house learning platforms in addition to providing access to existing software frameworks. As a partner of the Door Group and Door International, we are able to offer the support of 30 certified trainers in Poland, and a further 1000 trainers and consultants in 90 countries across the globe.

Publishing platforms

For the past two years we have been devising both innovative means of multiple-format text conversion and materials designed for computers, tablets, mobile phones and interactive whiteboards, including online courses, textbooks, magazines, catalogues and guides. Using the experience accumulated over ten years we are able to design platforms for even the biggest educational projects.

Sound recording and educational film production

We provide high quality sound recording and radio plays, guaranteeing a distinctive voiceover and extraordinary tone, thoughtfully performed and produced. We also have the ability to provide film crews and equipment.

E-learning platform – selected modules

LCMS MODULE

The LCMS module of the Progress Framework platform is the outcome of 10 years’ experience in training production and distribution. The e-learning platform as such is a part of the Progress Framework 2012 package but may also be used as a discrete application. The programme contains an extensive set of tools to design and share interactive courses , tests and online publications in a quick, simple and intuitive way, even if you do not have advanced computer knowledge. It is equipped with the function to instantly monitor learning progress, checking which users took the test and their results. At each stage, it is possible to generate a detailed report which allows you to precisely manage the learning process and analyze progress.

The platform is in line with international standards S.C.O.R.M. and AICC (optional), which allows it to run courses designed by independent producers and to be used as a tool to produce courses run by different systems, on CDs (with the option to send the results to the platform) or on a local network.

The system supports you in designing fully-fledged online courses which consist of diverse elements and interaction items.

PORTAL

Progress Framework 2012 is a software which allows the design of complex websites. In this case, elements like the e-learning platform, forum etc. are embedded in a global portal with multi-layer access.

The Content Management System, or CMS, is a set of visual tools to design websites simply regardless of your computer knowledge. There is no need to send the content to an IT expert who encodes it in HTML, you are able to do it on your own in a matter of seconds. If you notice any mistakes, you can correct it immediately.

The module contains devices which improve the management of complex websites, such as archiving of previous versions or workflow administration (draft documents, acceptance/publishing, archive).

KNOWLEDGE STORAGE

Progress Framework 2012 allows you to create a single knowledge repository, which can be accessed by employees, partners and clients at differing levels. The application recognises users and only displays the content they are entitled to. An embedded data warehouse and modern browser help you search even the largest volumes in a second. The system gives you the opportunity to describe content in order to locate it quickly and sort items relevantly (subject groups, competence, tags, metadata). The portal contains all common communication tools such as a forum, chatroom, newsletter distribution and instant message sender. Additionally, there is an option to design and add common intranet tools such as document circulation, project management, working hours or human resources management etc.

COMPANY SURVEY SYSTEM

Progress Framework 2012 allows you to carry out even the most advanced surveys (questionnaires, 360 degree feedback, competence tests, psychometric tests etc.), with the ability to present the results as reports (html), exported to MS Excel or sent to an external system integrated with Progress Framework 2012 (for example via SOAP). It is possible to quickly create other types of reports (included in the implementation process or ongoing software support) and tailor distribution processes to individual needs. Among other features, you can also generate PDF documents and send them to a particular address or grant managers access to employee’s results.

SCREEN, ACTIVITY TYPE AND TEST DEFINITION

The Learning Content Management System module(LCMS) of the Progress Framework platform was initially designed as an internal tool for the effective production of interactive training and publishing. Unlike many other desktop tools, the LCMS module of Progress Framework 2012 makes it possible for interdisciplinary teams to design training, with each person responsible for working on their own area of specialisation.

To prepare a lesson or a test, you simply complete a form which then creates a series of screens or slides containing the subject matter and questions with possible answers or some other form of interaction.

The system allows multiple use of the same object in numerous resources (one instance object – many applications), giving you the potential to create even the most complex activities and tests. Additionally, an embedded WYSIWYG processor makes it possible to enrich the text, create tables, add links or insert films, photos, flash videos and others. The test module is also allows you to present the questions in sets, shuffle answers, draw questions, define time limits, assign priorities for certain questions and sections and to set mandatory questions.
