For organizations to succeed, their employees must possess or have easy access to an incredible breadth and depth of knowledge. The only way for employees to attain the knowledge they require is to be constantly learning in a continuum of ways – formally and informally; independently and collaboratively; in the home or office, and while on the go. OutStart LCMS, OutStart SoftSim and Hot Lava Mobile are among the OutStart solutions that meet the varied learning requirements of individuals and organizations.

  • OutStart LCMS – The leading learning content management system (LCMS) for automating the development, management, maintenance and delivery of modular training
  • OutStart SoftSim – Create highly interactive simulations for Web and Windows-based applications, online processes and forms without any programming
  • Hot Lava Mobile – Develop, deploy and track single-source mobile content

The Best of Elearning! Awards are entirely reader driven and no vendor submissions are accepted. Winners will be announced November 4 at the upcoming Elearning! Summit.
