Octane is adding great value to our content. It allows us to engage students in new ways, while gathering valuable feedback at the same time.
Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) May 17, 2011
Ucompass.com, Inc., a leading provider of technology solutions for education and learning, unveiled its new Octane product today at the IMS Global Learning Impact Conference in Long Beach, California. Octane is a revolutionary system that changes how content publishers enhance and modernize their existing or new content.
“Octane is an entirely new approach to enhancing content,” said Edward Mansouri, chief executive officer for Ucompass.com, Inc. “It enables publishers to inject interactive tools and new functionality, by means of what we refer to as an Octane Fuel Cell, into their existing content to create a more engaging learning experience.”
Using Octane, publishers can add interactivity to legacy content in a matter of minutes. The product leverages scalable technology to inject interactive Octane tools, into the content. It works with any html content, with or without a learning management system, and delivers to any browser or mobile device. Publishers have full control over how and when the added tools and functionality appear within their content.
The Octane platform is designed to separate the workflow of content creation from tool development. The platform offers separate functionality to support each process, providing an infrastructure for publishers to create their own tools or the ability for them to leverage existing ones.
Ucompass.com, Inc. worked with its flagship customer, the Florida Virtual School, to deploy Octane to enrich its legacy content library. By using Octane, Florida Virtual School was able to enhance hundreds of courses, tens of thousands of lessons and millions of individual course documents, all without touching their source content.
“Octane has enabled us to enhance our content with hyperlinks, glossaries, translation tools, text-to-speech, content rating, and more, all without writing any code or touching our source files,” said Jennifer Whiting, Senior Manager of Curriculum Research and Discovery at Florida Virtual School. “Octane is adding great value to our content. It allows us to engage students in new ways, while gathering valuable feedback at the same time.”
