SUNRISE, FL (PRWEB) December 16, 2004
Learn.com, the leader in creating and projecting power-on-demand e-learning, announced today that The White House Communication Agency selected the Learn.com LearnCenter Learning Management System to power its rapid e-learning and training initiatives.
The White House Communications Agency (WHCA), founded in 1942, provides telecommunications and related support to the President, Vice President, First Lady, White House Senior Staff, National Security Council, U.S. Secret Service and others as directed by the White House Military Office. This support includes non-secure voice, secure voice, record communications, audiovisual services, automated data processing support and photographic and drafting services both in Washington, D.C. and trip sites worldwide.
The White House Communications Agency will use the LearnCenter Learning Management System (LMS) to deliver, manage and track every aspect of its government employee training including job qualifications and support capabilities in up to 10 disciplines and multiple skill levels. Training within the agency will take on a blended learning approach by combining online and classroom based training to improve retention and training quality. The LearnCenter will also provide a 24-hour online training portal for employees to utilize even over low bandwidths. LearnCenter will even manage Instructor Led Training (ILT) enrollments including the synchronization of the travel and training schedules of the learners.
The need for an LMS within the agency became evident when the White House Communications Agency began creating CBT (Computer Based Training) courses over the past two years. In fact, the agency had even considered developing an LMS in-house but decided it was much more cost and time effective to purchase a solution that could already do what was needed.
The selection process began with an in-depth RFP (Request for Proposal) which received responses from 9 vendors. Each vendor had to meet every aspect of the selection criteria or the vendor would not be able to present a live demonstration. Vendor software platforms were required to adhere to very specific functionality including tracking capabilities, course creation tools, and security requirements. Three vendors were selected to give live advanced demonstrations showing the full range of their LMS technology. At the end, only the Learn.com LearnCenter was able to meet the needs of The White House Communication Agency.
