Xyleme LCMS New Features and Capabilities
Online Design and Storyboard: Xyleme LCMS supports a new workflow that allows courses to be previewed at each phase of course design, reflecting up-to-date progress and enabling full collaboration during the course development process. The storyboard output includes placeholders for media not yet developed with links to the respective production notes. Production requirements can be output as scripts for media developers and/or exported to Excel for project management.
Simplified SME Knowledge Capture: With the new features in Xyleme Forms, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) can be assigned tasks that embed any system template, substantially reducing the learning curve for new content contributors. Xyleme Forms utilizes the same library of templates as the full Studio development environment, eliminating the need for separate tools and templates. The new release also allows output previews in multiple formats, enabling real-time review in any context.
Improved Performance and Security: Xyleme is committed to unparalleled product scalability to allow enterprise-wide deployments and real-time content delivery across any channel. The new release of Xyleme LCMS includes an enhanced load balancing algorithm for multiple CPU configurations, a new single sign and authentication mechanism for integration with third-party systems, and “single click publishing” of learning content to any LMS with the support for the PENS (Package Exchange Notification Services) specification.
