FlexTraining Version 6.2 Now Shipping

Tampa , FL – Dec 20, 2011

National Training Systems is now shipping Version 6.2 of its popular and scalable FlexTraining Total E-Learning Solution. The updated version of this universally adopted E-Learning system includes complete architectural updates and re-design, as well as interface enhancements and other usability changes. The new system adds value and promotes rapid learning for its extensive base of existing global users, as well as prospective customers evaluating the options available when implementing an online training initiative.

Most notable in the new 6.2 release is the complete rewrite, from the ground up, of the robust FlexTraining Management Center using ASP.NET technology. The new structure is more scalable, extensible, and easier to maintain. Customers will experience benefits such as greater training volume, faster response times, and the ability to handle more online learners. The Management System was rewritten from scratch, rather than converted, allowing FlexTraining engineers to take advantage of the latest techniques and designs.

Scott Cochran, National Training Systems General Manager, said "This version of FlexTraining will provide the foundation of our customers learning systems for years to come. It is solid, flexible, and designed to last." Cochran also stressed that future versions of the FlexTraining system will be more easily created and supported now that the current restructuring is complete.

Beyond the re-engineering of the product from a technical perspective, FlexTraining version also features major redesigns in selected heavily-used system features. For example, the integrated coursebuilding system was completely redesigned to be more compact and visual. The new look and feel is designed to increase productivity for course developers.

Also, the Media and Content shared libraries, where course authors catalog and deploy learning materials, have been redesigned to make content items easier to add and track. User can also work with multiple files, and very large files, more easily. Together with the new course building features, the user experience for content and course developers has been greatly streamlined and improved.
