VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., May 26, 2011 – DuPont Sustainable Solutions, a leader in innovative learning, has received two Brandon Hall bronze awards for technology excellence in the following categories: Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Global Training and Best Advance in Technology for Rich-Media Authoring.
The Learning Management System (LMS) was recognized in the Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Global Training category based on its ability to help standardize training across multiple locations and accelerate the delivery and management of online and classroom learning. The LMS has a multi-language interface, flexible reporting and content customization capability that enables administrators to add organization-specific video, graphics and training points to increase relevance to local audiences. Training administration is centralized and provides global reporting from any browser at any location.
Recognized in the category of Best Advance in Technology for Rich-Media Authoring, the Authoring Tool from DuPont Sustainable Solutions makes it easier and faster for learning and development professionals to generate organization-specific or job-specific content or to convert existing documents into learning content. With the Authoring Tool, trainers can create online courses using a variety of storyboard templates. The system requires no programming skills and is intuitive and easy to use. More importantly, interactive features make it easy to build self-checks and post-tests for assessing an employee’s competency on the subject matter.
