Desire2Learn, Inc., a leading provider of mission-critical enterprise eLearning solutions, today announced that HunterStone has joined the Desire2Learn Partner Network as a Select ISV Member, offering Desire2Learn clients the ability to easily create Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) compliant eLearning modules.
This partnership enables content creators to easily develop learning objects using familiar Microsoft Office applications, and rapidly convert existing content into accepted eLearning specifications. SCORM compliant learning modules can be stored, tagged and accessed on an "as needed" basis from multiple sources including users' desktops and learning object repositories, as well as being launched and tracked in the Desire2Learn Learning Environment.
The Desire2Learn Learning Environment was the first academically-focused system to be certified to support SCORM, and offers a complete suite of teaching and learning functionality for course development, delivery and management. Desire2Learn empowers organizations to achieve their eLearning vision through learning environments that reflect their vision, objectives and pedagogy.
HunterStone's THESIS product line provides plug-ins to Microsoft Office and converts any web presentable content into standards-based SCORM objects with a few simple mouse clicks. Available in twelve languages, HunterStone's THESIS provides users worldwide with one eLearning solution to create, deliver and measure interactive learning over the Internet and intranets.
"THESIS compliments the Desire2Learn Learning Environment by offering clients the ability to rapidly deploy SCORM-based learning content, empowering them to focus on teaching and learning, and not on the technology," said Jeremy Auger, Desire2Learn Chief Operating Officer. "This partnership further demonstrates our commitment to providing an ever more integrated environment in which instructors can offer learners an engaging online experience."
"We are excited about entering into this partnership with Desire2Learn and providing SCORM eLearning creation and conversion tools to their customers," stated HunterStone CEO Neil Richards. "We envision that Desire2Learn users will be able to save significant amounts of time and ultimately money by utilizing THESIS for their SCORM eLearning needs."
