Our integration with BlueVolt will enable LMS users to shop for content from OpenSesame’s 3,000+ course catalog and seamlessly add the courses to their university for immediate use
Portland, OR (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
OpenSesame (http://www.OpenSesame.com), the elearning marketplace that connects buyers and sellers of elearning courses, today unveiled a complete integration with the BlueVolt learning management system (LMS).
OpenSesame makes buying and selling corporate elearning as easy as downloading a song from iTunes. Using crowd-sourcing similar to iStockPhoto, the OpenSesame marketplace and technology offers a broad catalog alternative in the highly fragmented $4.5B elearning content market.
“Our integration with BlueVolt will enable LMS users to shop for content from OpenSesame’s 3,000+ course catalog and seamlessly add the courses to their university for immediate use,” said OpenSesame CEO Don Spear. “This process greatly simplifies the way learners select, buy and use elearning courses.”
The OpenSesame API enables developers to connect their learning management systems to OpenSesame's vast catalog of elearning courses, making it easy for LMS users to find, compare, purchase and use elearning content. "With other content sources, the purchase and deployment process can take months," said OpenSesame Senior Vice President Josh Blank. "Our API integration unlocks access to great elearning courses without headaches."
BlueVolt is the leading provider of online learning management systems for the manufacturing, construction and service industries. BlueVolt’s LMS for the extended enterprise delivers easy-to-use training across an entire company and its suppliers, sales channel, associations and customers.
“This partnership enables our customers to purchase excellent courses and use them in the BlueVolt LMS instantly,” said BlueVolt Vice President Chad Hoke. “This is an example of our efforts to streamline and simplify customers’ experiences using elearning.”
OpenSesame was incubated by BlueVolt in 2010 before becoming a separate corporation in 2011.
