<p><strong>Orem, Utah &mdash; May 10</strong><br />Vistacast LLC and Makau Corp. have announced the vLearning iPod Training System (ViTS) as the first enterprise software solution that enables courses developers and training administrators to put full courses in the iPod. </p><p>These courses are complete with screens that lead a learner to watch video content, take quizzes and report results to a learning management system for measurement and accreditation. </p><p>The training administrator has complete access to metrics information for each learner authorized in the iPod.<br /><br />&ldquo;While many companies are utilizing Apple&rsquo;s iPod device for training, they are not able to track and report the training,&quot; said Jose J. Carrasquillo, Vistacast president and CEO. &ldquo;Vistacast products are the only tools available for enterprise training that will deliver the training to the targeted iPod and ensure learner tracking of metrics that measure outcomes and performance levels among all of their employees, even if they are not connected to the Internet.&rdquo;<br /><br />ViTS is the first end-to-end solution to offer content providers the flexibility of using several transports such as satellite, Internet and ATSC datacasting to reach members of the mobile workforce wherever they are while maintaining the distance learning standard of learning management systems (SCORM).<br /><br />It is focused on managing and providing training in the iPod that includes full multimedia, video, audio and text at lower cost than current solutions. </p><p>The system is designed to have a software module that runs on the administration server interfacing to the learning management system (LMS) and another software module that runs in tandem with iTunes.</p><p>&ldquo;The vLearning iPod Training System is designed with the training provider&rsquo;s real world requirements in mind, said Mark Lindsay, Makau Corp. vice president of business development. &quot;It puts more control, convenience and choice in our hands while giving greater flexibility for the learner to access the training anytime and anywhere, even if they are in a train or an airplane.</p><p>&quot;The system also reduces the cost associated with an improved learning environment since v-learning integrates with current learning management systems.&rdquo;</p>
