Trainer1 provides a number of services to Westinghouse Rail to give its staff guidance and support on the most effective and efficient uses of e-learning including Context Sensitive Learning, Trainer1’s own delivery system for informal learning.

According to Neil Lasher of Trainer1: “CourseMill 4.1 represents a major step forward in learning management. The product runs in Java on the server side but without the need for a client side applet.

“This version of CourseMill offers advantages over its predecessors in that there are better cataloguing and ‘search for courses’ facilities. Moreover, courses now run in ‘sessions’; it has user calendars, allowing you to see what programs learners have been using; it includes a ‘classroom booking system’; copes with multiple instructors on one course, and the product handles SCORM, AICC and non-compliant courses.

“It also allows courses to run in ‘SCORM disconnected’ mode,” Lasher added. “This allows users to sign up for a course, download it, work on the course off-line and, when they next connect to the internet, their scores are automatically uploaded to the learning management system.

“Among the benefits of using CourseMill 4.1 is that its front end – which the user sees – is fully editable via Lectora, allowing complete customisation and ‘branding’ of the interface.

“The commitment from Westinghouse to their staff for both formal and informal e-learning has been a priority for many years. We are delighted to be continuing this relationship for a further period,” said Lasher.

”Impressively, CourseMill can be installed and operating within a single business day on a standard Microsoft-based server environment.”
