30 September 2010, CERTPOINT Systems™, a leading international provider of integrated enterprise learning solutions, today released the latest version of its learning platform, CERTPOINTVLS 7.0. The new release extends the CERPOINTVLS offering of a single learning platform that seamlessly integrates content creation, learning management and content delivery over a full range of devices that support both e-learning and m-learning.

“CERTPOINTVLS 7.0 showcases some impressive new capabilities, especially with content creation,” explains CERTPOINT Systems CEO Ara Ohanian. “The ability to record, edit and integrate video and audio from within the platform is particularly useful, and it is all part of our aim to provide a single platform for both learning management and learning content creation.”

Version 7.0 of CERTPOINTVLS also extends the platform’s ability to deliver learning content over mobile devices such as the iPhone and other smart phones. CERTPOINT has retained its open approach to devices — the VLS platform can deliver e-learning courses, videos, tests and quizzes as well as performance support information over a complete range of smart phones and other mobile devices.

The new release has been well received by users. “It’s great to hear about the latest version of CERTPOINTVLS,” says Rob Sharpe, Director of Training at Stanley Black & Decker Inc. “As an established user of the learning platform, we know how beneficial it is to our organizational learning. We can’t wait to evaluate and install the latest version.”

Other enhancements in CERTPOINTVLS 7.0 include an updated interface for both users and administrators. The new interface, created in close collaboration with current VLS users, is designed to be more intuitive and to increase learner adoption and uptake. Another advantage of the new interface layout is faster completion of administrative processes and tasks.

Functionality in the manipulation and storage of course materials has also been significantly improved. Hierarchical access permissions, for example, make it easy to manage content creation across authoring teams. The system also makes possible the extensive reuse of learning materials — in different languages, for example, and across different delivery mechanisms such as mobile learning.

“This latest release of our learning platform continues a story that began in the 1990s,” explains Ara, “and throughout we’ve remained true to the same aim: producing systems that increase organizational productivity. That’s why Gartner recognizes us as a visionary company. We are always innovating, always focused on systems that meet that aim. They need to be fast to implement, clear to use and quick to show results. CERTPOINTVLS is trusted in over 40 countries and languages to do exactly that.”
