ATLANTA, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Peach New Media announces a breakthrough for professional and trade associations looking to offer SCORM conformant courses to their members. The online learning company, with offices in Atlanta and Boston, announced that through a partnership with LearnSomething, associations can leverage the content Peach is capturing through conference recordings, webinars, webcasts, and archived courses to build more interactive eLearning courses.
This announcement from Peach comes on the heels of earlier announcements that social communities will now be available to the peach clients through a proprietary service offering called Virtual Study Groups. "Now you have the perfect arsenal of online learning tools," says Johnson Cook, Peach New Media Co-Founder. "I'm an association member looking to stay informed and educated, I am now in love with my association! On the same site, I can meet and interact with other members while launching into a variety of self-paced or even live e-learning products."
With the new SCORM for associations offering, Peach New Media clients have the ability to self-publish courses to their Freestone™ portal using any SCORM-based authoring tool, such as Articulate Presenter. Associations can utilize their own Instructional and Graphic Designers, or can work with LearnSomething, Peach New Media's preferred instructional design partner, to build rich and engaging eLearning courses.
Also exciting to many educators is the ability to offer SCORM courses while leveraging Peach's many content capturing services, such as in-person conference recording, live webinar production, and Virtual Study Groups. This content, converted into a SCORM conformant format, becomes much more valuable to associations, especially those offering content to corporate America.
