Ascolta Co-Develops eLearning Training
Irvine, Calif., and Warrenville, Ill. — Dec. 9
Ascolta, a provider of information technology training and learning services, and CourseAvenue, a provider of learning content authoring systems and learning integration services, announced the availability of end user training on Cisco’s TelePresence System in an e-learning format. Cisco TelePresence combines audio, high-definition video and interactive elements to deliver what it calls an “in-person meeting experience” over your network.
Ascolta said it recognized the need to continue to expand its e-learning offerings to meet clients’ changing training needs. Ascolta and CourseAvenue said they worked simultaneously throughout the development process, reducing review cycles and enabling Ascolta to get the training in the hands of their clients more quickly than if they had chosen a traditional desktop authoring tool.
“Working with CourseAvenue is an important step in continuing to support our customer’s training objectives,” said Ted Wagner, Ascolta’s chief financial officer. “This partnership increases our ability to expand in this area of training and build custom e-learning courses for our clients.”
Utilizing various forms of source materials, such as PowerPoint slides, instructor-led resources and concept designs, subject matter experts and authors worked together to create an approach to providing Cisco TelePresence end users with what they needed to interface with their TelePresence solution.
The Cisco TelePresence course includes CourseAvenue’s hybrid e-learning capabilities, aiming to give Ascolta clients the ability to customize specific elements of the course, including welcome messages, specific contact information for end users and company branding.
