dominKnow LCMS 5.2 Offers Instructional Design Templates, SCORM-Compliant Player, Audio Workflow, Unicode Authoring and Improved iPhone Support

dominKnow LCMS Also Offers More Than 50 UI and Learning Performance Enhancements

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - GeoLearning 2008 Summit -- Forget staring at a blank screen. With dominKnow LCMS 5.2, instructional designers can kick-start courseware development with a growing library of both interactive and static learning-focused templates. Interactive templates include true or false and multiple choice questions, as well as unique interactions including comparative and reflection exercises. Static templates include a range of attractive content pages including title page, text and image display layouts. dominKnow Inc.'s new Learning Content Management System is being announced today at GeoLearning Inc.'s 2008 Learning and Performance Summit, where dominKnow is a Platinum Sponsor and OEM Partner.

dominKnow LCMS 5.2 also introduces the following new features among more than 50 other UI and learning performance enhancements:

--  Enhanced SCORM-compliant Course Player. dominKnow LCMS 5.2's SCORM
    Course Player now includes extended support for configurable course options
    such as pretesting, sequential, test review and content interaction with
    navigation control. Building on dominKnow's continued commitment to open
    learning standards, the new Course Player adds SCORM 2004 3rd Edition, on
    top of the already supported SCORM 1.2, SCORM 2004 2nd, AICC and PENS
    offerings.
    
--  Narrator workflow. Instructional designers now have both audio
    workflow and technology to easily insert and manage narration in both .FLV
    and .MP3 formats. Once they record a narration, they can use wizard-based
    workflow to upload and apply the audio to the relevant course pages. Or
    they can use the wizard to record the narration right in the system using a
    PC microphone. The workflow includes options to control mic level, playback
    and content sequencing.
    
--  Unicode language support. The dominKnow LCMS's authoring tool is now
    100% Unicode compliant in both courseware development and publishing
    operations, allowing instructional designers to create and translate a
    course into any language.
    
--  iPhone SDK beta 2 support. Building on its previous support for
    iPhone/iPod touch e-learning, the newest version of dominKnow's LCMS
    supports the latest iPhone SDK, allowing for complete courseware delivery
    to Apple's Safari mobile browser platform. Courseware administrators can
    also enable/disable a self-enrollment option for iPhone/iPod touch users.
