What e-learning solution is used?

The IBM Launch Education uses IBM Web Lecture Services (WLS) technology.

This is an innovative service developed by the Learning Technologies Group, who are part of AMS Learning Development (Europe), which helps you disseminate communications, information and training in a clear consistent and measured way to large numbers of people no matter where they may be.

We enable you to easily turn a presentation (Microsoft PowerPoint(R) or Lotus Freelance(R)) into an extremely effective Web Lecture without the need for any specialist equipment. Anyone within your organization can then access and review the web lecture via their standard web browser. Since the content is constantly available, the audience can review it when and where they want.

It's an ideal solution for distributed organisations, such as banks, dealer networks, sales groups, and many others. Using IBM Web Lecture Services, it is possible to communicate strategic messages clearly and consistently, train sales and marketing teams on new products, reduce training costs, improve overall communication, and much more.

Business benefits using WLS:

WLS will allow you to react 'time-to-market', improving communication and reducing your costs.
