Training Studio's basic concept is that the subject matter expert (SME) enters
the training content into a database rather than inside an authoring tool. At
the same time, the SME selects an interaction type (Timed Bullets, Rollover
Hotspots, Multiple Choice Question, etc.) from a supported list. Media and
graphics are stored externally and referenced in the database. The e-Learning
itself is then generated at runtime by loading the database and the external
media/graphics. Advantages of this approach include the ability to quickly
update content, the reduced tool-specific training needed for SME’s, the ease
of supporting multiple languages, and greatly reduced development/maintenance
of that! HTML developers can edit the templates and create new ones if
desired. There is a wide array of built-in functionality including SCORM
1.2/2004 support, AICC, a complete review/comment tracking system, randomization of
answers, exam scoring, HTML 5 media when available, great interaction using the popular and open-source jQuery library, and page completion
We are happy to show Training Studio to you any time via a GoTo Meeting
demonstration. Use the links to the left to join a scheduled demonstration or
to request a personal one. Or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Platte Canyon® TBK Tracker™ Learning
Management System (LMS) also tracks Training Studio and Exam Engine content. This is the perfect
solution for tracking native (non-web based) content run from CD or on a local
area network. Even better is that the SAME content can be used for running on a
SCORM-based LMS. We also have a product called Tracker Sync™ that will allow you to synchronize your TBK Tracker
content with our Tracker.Net™

I have to admit, the more time I find to spend in Flex and Flash, the more convinced that Training Studio was the right choice for this project!
Training Studio looks to be a promising tool in the e-Learning author's toolbox - not least because it enables non-programmers to exploit the
nice bits of Flash in a practical data-driven framework, without the pain of actually using Flash.
Thank you for demonstrating Training Studio yesterday. It was inspirational.
It’s Saturday night at 9:30 PM. The wife is out of town and I couldn't help myself. I'm at the office, the stereo is up and the beer is cold. I am playing with my new favorite program, Training Studio. I'm still learning a few things and have many cool ideas. But after all the laborious years of packaging headaches, this is great. Anyway, this just rocks. I know I'm rambling but I really REALLY like this a lot! Great great job!!!!
