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 time. Training Studio uses HTML/JavaScript templates but your content is even independent 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 display.

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 info@plattecanyon.com.

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™ LMS.

  • I freaking love TS!
  • 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.
  • 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!!!!
