Pensacola, FL (PRWEB) September 30, 2011
Smart Horizons, the smart choice in innovative training solutions, and Advanced Systems Technology, Inc. announced today the adoption of NexMeeting into the NexPort Campus. Smart Horizons training is delivered using NexPort Campus, a secure, hosted learning and knowledge management system. The inclusion of NexMeeting provides Smart Horizons’ customers with access to online conferencing technologies that provide integrated telephone and computer-based audio, slide presentations, chat, white boards, and recording capability. Instructors and administrators are able to conduct web-based seminars and classes that are accessible to subscribers in even the most remote regions.
NexPort Campus also supports interactive engagement within learning communities through the use of videos, wikis, blogs, collaborative web pages, and threaded discussions. Because NexPort features address many of the weaknesses of traditional distributed learning environments, the world’s first fully accredited online school district, Smart Horizons Career Online Education, employs NexPort Campus and its integrated Student Information System (SIS).
Additional systems features of the NexPort Campus include data interoperability with external systems, secure digital libraries with subscriber-only access, flexible and responsive instructional “mash ups,” and an integrated Student Information System (SIS).
NexPort Campus also allows clients to become online providers of user-customized, on demand training and education services. Clients operate within their own branded sites to deliver their specialized services independently of each other. Customers may sub-divide their sites to establish and manage subordinate secure sites for their customers, subsidiaries, or divisions. Each site provides privacy protection and security through Secure Sockets Layer technology (128-bit encryption).
