Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 27, 2009
BridgeFront announces it has expanded its online education customization toolkit. Now, clients can log in and edit any core BridgeFront online course to suit their specific organizational policies and procedures with the Course Editor Tool. The simple interface allows non-technical users to add new or delete existing pages with ease. Users can also add custom links to videos, web sites, word documents and more.
"This tool is now included in our new Customization Center," says Peter N. Cizik, CEO of BridgeFront. "The Customization Center allows you to seamlessly integrate how you operate inside your facility - whether it's your unique policies and procedures, how your specific software applications operate or certain work flows you want to reinforce with staff members. Our tools are ideal for organizations that simply do not have the time or resources to re-invent the wheel."
After a short training session, clients can immediately start to the edit BridgeFront courses. Once the courses are edited, clients can simply assign it to any student and use the tracking features associated with all BridgeFront courses. BridgeFront will also continue to maintain the original content in any custom client course.
"Education is the foundation of our success at INTEGRIS Health," says Brent Grimes, Corporate Director Patient Financial Services of INTEGRIS Health. "INTEGRIS was in need of a tool that provides timely, consistent, interactive training for issues that affect cash flow and allows for career development. BridgeFront delivered."
In the last year, BridgeFront has released five new training administrator tools -
- Course Annotator Tool
- Course Editor Tool
- Course & Test Builder Tool
- Competency Management System
- Contract Management System
BridgeFront's Course Annotator Tool allows organizations to annotate a course by adding hyperlinks on the bottom of any course page and add test questions via the online education center. The hyperlinks generate pop-up boxes when clicked to show any custom content the organization wants to communicate to staff as they navigate the course.
BridgeFront's Course Editor Tool is an incredible new tool. Clients now have the flexibility and ease to customize BridgeFront course content. The training administrator simply logs in and with a few clicks can add a page, modify an existing page or deactivate a page. Students will not know the difference between new and existing pages.
BridgeFront's Course and Test Builder Tool allows organizations to build a complete custom online course and test in the online education center, and assign to as many students as needed. Organizations can convert existing physical training materials, classroom training and even PowerPoints into an online course and test.
Organizations also have the ability to manage staff competencies using BridgeFront's Competency Management System. In this system, organizations can build and administer online tests to determine skill gaps before hiring and after, and create custom curriculums based upon those competency levels.
The Contract Management System offers organizations the ability to manage their contract online and quickly bulk-assign courses to students.
"The Contract Management System allows organizations to quickly bulk-assign courses to students with a single key stroke; no more waiting involved," says Kent Lane, co-founder and COO of BridgeFront. "In the last year, we have released five new tools that offer our clients the ability to edit our course and test content, build their own courses, manage staff competencies and now easily manage their training contract. No other competitor in online healthcare education has delivered a similar product or service."
