The e-learning market is poised for explosive growth.
Ayr, Scotland (PRWEB) June 15, 2006
LockLizard Protector has been specifically designed to stop elearning courses from being pirated. It prevents unauthorized users from accessing course content, and controls what authorized users can do with it (copy, share, print for example) and for how long.
“Corporate e-learning is one of the fastest-growing sectors within the education market," says KPMG Consulting. "Huge benefits will accrue when content flows seamlessly - often over mobile networks - throughout industry value chains." IDC forecast that the global e-learning market is worth some $23bn. Gartner says: "The e-learning market is poised for explosive growth."
But that serious growth has yet to happen. Why? Because elearning companies have to rely on the revenue they receive from their courses, and until now there has been nothing to prevent users from giving course content to others. And that is just not a realistic economic model. Elearning is as exposed to piracy issues as any other hi-tech supplier. And without IPR protection, far from quickly developing, the elearning market has been held back because it cannot achieve its full economic potential.
LockLizard Protector is unique in delivering DRM (Digital Rights Management) technology to the elearning marketplace with US Government strength encryption to protect course content. It is the first DRM enforcing product specifically focused at protecting an elearning company’s revenue streams. It creates the significant boost that allows this industry to establish itself as firmly as the pundits are predicting.
Elearning publishers now have a simple way to control who views their content, where, and when, and for how long. Protector’s instant revocation and expiry controls ensure the latest version of course materials are always used and customers continue paying for your content. Protector’s printing controls can limit the number of prints that can be made.
Protector controls a wide range of file types – HTML, HTM, JPG, GIF, TIF, PNG, TXT, CSV, SWF (Flash). It even has built-in PDF to HTML and DOC to HTML converters. AVI, MPG, WAV and MP3 files can be simply converted to flash to get the benefits of full protection for multimedia.
LockLizard Protector starts with entry level pricing at just $3495 for a subscription license, with perpetual and own server licenses also available. For more information see http://www.locklizard.com/html_security.htm
