Drag and Drop for Rapid Reuse: Learning objects can be quickly reused through drag and drop editing into multiple learning products. This enables effortless content reuse by eliminating the cumbersome and risky tasks of cutting, pasting and reformatting.
Interactive Content: Users can produce rich training materials with the wide variety of built-in activity and question types, and enhance your content with the support for video, audio, Adobe Flash, PowerPoint Slides and Java applets.
Search: Users can build and save granular queries on any combination of text, XML structure, object properties, workflow data, or metadata. This ensures faster and better retrieval of content to drive efficient content reuse and rapid development for training materials.
Media Management: The media manager provides direct access to either internal or external media or enterprise repository. Allows users to open, edit and save media in their native applications such as Adobe/Macromedia products, directly from Xyleme LCMS. All media can be tagged with metadata for easy search and reuse.
// MIGRATION Immediately Leverage Legacy Content Xyleme LCMS provides out-of-the-box functionality to automatically import learning content from multiple formats and transform it to XML.
Unlike other LCMS vendors who simply cannot import legacy content, Xyleme LCMS enables effortless integration and conversion of learning content from legacy applications, other functional applications and proprietary content management systems.
This allows you to achieve the maximum ROI of your learning content investment through open, platform-agnostic content that can be output to any delivery modality and can conform to any industry standard.
Xyleme LCMS also imports unstructured content from.zip and media files into its repository.
Supported media file formats include.jpeg,.jpg,.png,.gif,.tif,.tiff,.eps, avi,.mov,.swf,.flv,.mp3, and.wav.
// CONTENT MANAGEMENT Flexible and Collaborative Content Management Within Xyleme LCMS, each learning object, rather than an entire document, is an independent asset. As a result, any number of learning objects can be simultaneously checked-in/-out, previewed, edited, reviewed or sent through Xyleme LCMS built-in production workflow. This enables parallel project development to optimize collaboration and improve time-to-market.
Task Management: Instructional Designers can create tasks for each piece of content, define the requirements and deadline and assign them to users.
© Copyright 2012 Xyleme, Inc. Xyleme and Pastiche are registered trademarks, all rights reserved. All other product names mentioned herein are the property of their respective owners. Check-In/Check-Out: Locks the selected learning object for exclusive editing while not affecting its children, and allows learning objects to be developed in parallel by multiple subject matter experts.
Advanced Versioning: Allows each version to be opened, previewed, edited, and compared with previous versions or rolled forward, and allows users to track changes and avoid content loses as content goes through the editorial life cycle.
Security: All learning objects in Xyleme LCMS have associated security metadata that defines user access and type of access (administer, read, update). The security model supports both users and groups so permissions can be easily defined at each level.
Specialized Interfaces: Supports knowledge capture from subject matter experts (SMEs) through a lightweight, forms-based editor that can send content via email. Facilitates collaboration and allows for the easy management of a large group of geographically dispersed SMEs.
Review Engine: Allows users to initiate a review, choose the review format and select one or more reviewers. Content is locked during the review session and each comment is associated to the corresponding piece of content and flagged to keep track of their status. The full history of comments is available at any time. The review engine enables real-time collaboration during the review process and ensures all users are reviewing the same content.
Project Management Xyleme LCMS provides the ability to build production schedules for your projects. You can now manage and track the development of a specific training product or individual outputs associated with it. To start your project you define your own workflow, add tasks to the plan with the corresponding estimated dates and define the resource requirements. You can then drag and drop to link tasks to content objects. While the project is running the team can set revised date estimates and actual dates once a particular task is finished.
The Production Scheduling feature provides project visibility to managers through a report engine to follow the progress of the different projects and tasks. The reporting is very flexible and managers can filter the projects and tasks using many different filters to accommodate their business requirements.
// PUBLISHING With the Xyleme LCMS single-source platform, content is created once as reusable learning objects that can be effortlessly repurposed and reassembled into custom training content and output to print, Web, eReader, mobile or tablet format. Since all content is created and stored as open, platformagnostic XML, your content is ready to be immediately leveraged through new formats as they emerge.
Key Features and Benefits Publishing Templates Library: Templates govern the presentation and output format. Multiple publishing templates can be applied to a single piece of content. Enables on-demand single-source publishing to any output format while ensuring consistency in presentation, branding, and look-andfeel across all blended learning products.
