Neoxen Systems and Context Learning Finland have today announced new international release of their Microsoft Azure based e-Learning Management and Content Creation platform.

”As an enterprise level service, XoomPoint has been evolving fast. More and more advanced features are introduced in a regular basis.” tells Esa Tervo, CEO at Neoxen Systems. ”This new release allows deeper integration with corporate backbone systems, simplifies secure authentication, content production and utilization of learning data for Learning Analytics. We have a multi-billion enterprise client already using these new features in their training which covers thousands of users in 30 countries worldwide.”

”There are exciting new features in content production as well. In this new release XoomPoint supports active learning paths which allow pre-defined sequenced materials or courses.” says Ari Ketola, CEO of Context Learning Finland and continues. ”Learning paths can be assigned to selected learners or groups. This brings huge possibilities to content development as we can easily create prerequisites that must be completed before accessing next content.”
New Enterprise Features

Authentication Gateway@XoomPoint Cloud

Smooth and secure authentication is a must for modern networked organizations. New Authentication Gateway@XoomPoint Cloud enables multiple organizations with different authentication mechanisms to connect directly with XoomPoint Cloud Service through a unified interface.

Reporting Center

There is a new Reporting Center with Open Data Access Interface. This allows closer integration with corporate reporting systems and other external systems. It also enables third party solutions to securely access learning data.

Course Type Identification

Learning courses can now be categorized using Course Type Identifiers. In a new course creation it is possible to choose course type, for example non-stop courses with no specific end-date, and with auto-grading.

Assignment grading is automatically returned to the learner. This new feature allows service tailoring with customer specific course types for special needs.

Qualification Information

Learning Assignments can now include Qualification Information for easier integration with external competence management.

This information is also utilized by the new Reporting Center and it is available through Open Data Access Interface.
