OutStart Announces Evolution for ADL Registry
Industry's first solution to automate registration for distributed e-learning content in support of mandated initiative for U.S. military and government agencies
BOSTON, May 22 -- OutStart, the leading provider of eKnowledge software solutions for learning and knowledge-sharing, today announced the availability of OutStart Evolution for Advanced Distributed Learning Registry (ADL Registry.) The product offers the first automated, practical means for military and government agencies to register e-learning content to the ADL Registry for repurpose and reuse, eliminating an otherwise arduous, manual process.
The ADL Registry is a newly operational registration system that has been mandated for distributing e-learning content in the U.S. military and across government organizations. The vision for the ADL Registry is to support content reuse, re-sequencing, and delivery across the often proprietary LMS and LCMS environments. The goal is to enable unified human capital management within the Department of Defense and globally. The standard method for registering to the ADL Registry is through a web interface that requires manual entries for each item submitted; a process that requires considerable time and resources. Evolution for ADL Registry automates the process providing the first practical, high-volume mechanism for registering content to the ADL Registry.
"OutStart is an aggressive supporter of ADL standards. For example, we were among the first to receive SCORM 2004 certification. We are committed to helping customers move e-learning from an era of proprietary platforms to one which content is created to work across multiple systems and delivered from many different sources," said Massood Zarrabian, president and CEO of OutStart. "Our new solution is the first of its kind to provide a practical connection between learning content and the ADL Registry to support reuse across all of the Department of Defense."
"We are excited to see adoption of the ADL Registry in industry. OutStart's integration of the ADL Registry into its Evolution product is a critical step in making registration of DoD training content a painless task for content developers," said Bill Blackmon, chief technical officer for ADL. "The true benefits of the ADL Registry will be apparent once we have a community of instructional designers who are able to seamlessly share and reuse content without leaving their primary content management tools."
OutStart Evolution for ADL Registry is available immediately as a standalone solution or as a module for existing implementations of Evolution LCMS.
