Eedo is increasing productivity throughout the organization by providing faster, more effective knowledge transfer and on the- job performance support.

Eighty-five per cent of Eedo’s global customers — including Sony Ericsson, Boeing, Metlife and Apria Healthcare — practice dynamic content delivery, which refers to the ability to distribute approved content to end-users immediately, either directly from a learning content management system (LCMS), or through integration with learning management or other human resource systems or portals. This immediacy means end-users are using the most current, reliable information; there is no lag time.

With dynamic delivery, new or revised content is available immediately and can be accessed when needed. As well, it can be made available in the format most suitable for the task at hand, including formal elearning courses, key-word searches, context- sensitive help or performance support.

Question mark Perception is a complete assessment management system that enables you to create questions and organize them into exams, quizzes, tests or surveys. It allows management to schedule people to take the assessments, deliver them in a variety of ways and then view the results in 10 different report types.

Management can author questions using wizards in a Windows environment and then store and edit them with local or shared repositories. The authoring wizards make it easy to create 20 different types of questions.

While using the authoring wizards, you can add multimedia files including audio, video, Flash animations and Captivate simulations to Perception questions. When the participant completes an assessment, the results are stored in Perception’s answer database. Administrators can then view these via a browser.

Perception offers 10 predefined report styles, but you can also define your own reports. A Perceptions Workflow management module allows organizations to define and enforce processes and rules to control the development and deployment of questions.

Author-it 5.0 is the first content management system to include interactive authoring memory. This memory product feature will be known as Author-it Xtend.

Using intelligent “fuzzy logic” matching, this new feature makes all of the approved knowledge/content contained in a company’s database available to content creators, eliminating the need to perform a time-consuming manual search. In fact, studies conducted by several industry experts have indicated that knowledge workers spend up to 35 percent of their time searching for information.

The concept behind Author-it Xtend is that it automates the re-use of content and places the knowledge of an organization at the fingertips of all users — when they need it. Once a user begins typing, matching or similar content is located and returned instantly — even if he or she is unaware that the content exists.

Suggestions can be revealed in as few as three words and in a fraction of a second. Users can choose to instantly insert any of the suggestions, see what documents those suggestions currently appear in, or continue typing to refine the suggestions. The reuse of content not only saves time and money in content production and localization (translation), it ensures that consistent messages are conveyed in both a company’s external and internal communications.
