Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) March 30, 2010
Ucompass.com, a leading producer of rich and engaging eLearning environments, announces the availability of the UcompOS Rich Experience Framework, a platform for building rich portal applications.
This UcompOS framework is currently being used as the foundation of Educator 2, the company’s next generation eLearning platform that is scheduled for release in late 2010. Educator 2 is an innovative learning management system (LMS) that leverages rich internet application technology to bridge the desktop and the web to create an engaging, collaborative learning environment. Built on a scalable and robust technology infrastructure, Educator 2 will offer the best blend of reliability and innovation for eLearning in K-12, higher education, and professional environments.
“Our goal with the release of the UcompOS Rich Experience Framework is to open up this innovative technology to developers in all markets, to promote the concept of Rich Portal Applications and encourage their adoption,” said Edward Mansouri, chief executive officer of Ucompass.com. “One of the major challenges with rich portal applications is that they take a long time to build. By using this framework, developers can bring solutions to market faster and more economically.”
“The UcompOS framework is a great example of how developers can bring a lot of web technologies together to form building blocks on which to create their own stuff”, says Ryan Stewart, rich internet application evangelist at Adobe Systems. “With this framework, it is extremely easy to create portlets from HTML or Flex/Actionscript 3 and make everything configurable with an XML file. It will significantly shorten time to market for those looking to build their own rich portals.”
To accompany the framework, Ucompass has launched a resource blog (http://blog.ucompass.com) to equip developers with everything they need to work with the UcompOS Rich Experience Framework. The blog provides support and leadership for developers looking to build their own Rich Portal Applications. The site resources include information, downloads, video tutorials, demos, a release history, and various other development tools. At the same time, the blog collects information about bugs and improvements to help Ucompass.com create an overall more powerful, stable and robust platform.
The UcompOS Framework leverages a variety of technologies, including Adobe’s new Flash Builder 4 that was released just last week. It also uses Adobe AIR technology to enable UcompOS applications to extend to the desktop.
