Partnership to lead to responsive design online courses
Learning content specialist Video Arts has partnered with e-learning company Netex to create online courses which will work across devices such as tablets and smartphones.
Covering subjects such as management skills, communication, teamwork, customer service, quality and continuous improvement, the new courses will combine Video Arts soft skills video and e-learning content with Netex's fresh approach to online learning design.
"By delivering high quality content through mobile devices, these new courses will enable organisations to provide engaging, affordable and effective training that is compatible with people's busy lifestyles," said Mike Byrne, UK country manager for Netex.
"Video Arts is an established global brand and it's very exciting to work with them to create content that will play on any device, from desktops to mobile phones. Our responsive design templates mean the content will modify to suit the optimal display settings for each device."
The new courses will be compatible with Microsoft, iOS, Android and Blackberry devices and customers will be able to brand and tailor the content to their needs. The content will be SCORM-compliant, so it can be scheduled and managed via a mobile-learning platform. TinCan functionality will also be available.
Martin Addison, CEO of Video Arts, said: "Netex is an experienced and internationally-recognised e-learning provider with great technological capability. We're delighted to be partnering with them to offer exceptional e-learning course content with an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices.
"This new series of courses fits perfectly with our core proposition to provide engaging learning that's accessible anytime and anywhere."
