NewswireToday - /newswire/ - St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom, 2011/04/18 - Omniplex, a leading provider of e-learning solutions, is seeing impressive and rising levels of demand for its training courses in how to use the Articulate suite of e-learning rapid authoring tools.

Judging from those who attend these two-day courses, organisations are making increasing use of e-learning because it is scalable, available to a widely geographically dispersed workforce on demand and, by using a rapid authoring tool, it can be produced in-house with the minimum of fuss by training and/or subject matter experts.

Omniplex’s managing director, Matthew Lloyd, explained: “Most of the people we see on these courses are HR or training specialists who are developing their knowledge of the software and its capabilities. They tend to be drawn from a wide cross-section of mainly large to medium sized organisations.”

The nine delegates on the course fitted his description.

Steve Russell, of the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) Group, explained that NEC Group is expanding the learning materials available to its 800 or so full time staff as well as the large number of people on ‘zero hours’ and casual contracts. He added: “Buying e-learning materials off-the-shelf can be expensive – so we’ve been attracted to the opportunities presented by Articluate to enable us to develop our own e-learning materials.”

Russell readily agreed that he was no ‘techy’ but said that the Omniplex Articulate course was extremely helpful and was giving him new skills which he could put to good use when he got back to his desk.

Kevin Clark, a training specialist with Getty Images, said that e-learning is offering a highly cost-effective and scalable way to make learning materials available to the company’s staff worldwide. He has responsibility for creating online, accessible and engaging e-learning materials – as opposed to ‘Word documents which have been put on a web page’.

“The Omniplex training course has kept up a useful ‘level’ of information and delivered it at a decent pace,” he commented. “One particular benefit is being able to have your laptop open during the course in order to be able to practice straight away the new techniques we’re learning.

Lillian Livingston, a training coordinator with the pharmaceutical company Takeda Global Research, also praised the course – for filling gaps in her knowledge about Articulate. Takeda is rapidly expanding the scope of its e-learning materials within its European operations – hence its interest in Articulate.

The University of East London supplied four of the delegates on the course – principally because it wants to develop its in-house authoring capability. Mat Tinker confessed to having used Articulate before but added: “This course is useful for ‘filling in the gaps in my knowledge’.”

He continued: “Articulate appears to be more all encompassing than other rapid authoring tools and, at a basic level, it’s highly intuitive and easy to use.”

Tara Haynes, a training and development specialist with Paramount Restaurants, which now operates 44 restaurants nationwide – including the brands of Chez Gérard, Bertorelli, Livebait, Caffè Uno, Brasserie Gérard and iL Bertorelli – revealed that, having had success with e-learning as a delivery mechanism for health and safety related topics, the company is putting more of its learning materials online. That, in turn, explains Paramount restaurants’ interest in the Articulate authoring tool.

Omniplex is the UK’s sole certified Articulate training provider and the only company in the UK to offer the complete range of services relating to the Articulate e-learning authoring tool. The authoring tool is one of a suite of products from the New York-based Articulate, which include:

• Video Encoder: which allows users to add full-motion video – including video recorded from webcam - to content in any Articulate product.
