Skills M5 is a complete, online Learning Management System that enables the rapid creation and distribution of online courses and provides advanced student management.
Designed specifically to deliver interactive, computer-based training, Skills M5 enables you to address the five key aspects of training development:
Analyze student and task requirements
Design the course outline
Develop engaging, interactive courseware
Conduct the training
Evaluate both the student and the courseware
Skills M5 isSCORM-compliant, meaning content will display and behave the same on Skills M5 as it will on other SCORM-compliant Learning Management Systems.
What's more, it integrates with our S1000D solutions (often used in defense, aerospace and heavy industry). This allows training developers to re-use technical content that is stored within an S1000D repository (like our R4i Common Source Database). This means training developers and technical writers can use the same base content, saving days of content creation and re-entering data.
Skills M5 is made up of two components - Skills Studio for the development and authoring of courses, and Skills MyClass for student and course management
Utilized by subject matter experts and technical personnel, Skills Studio is a unique forms-based authoring environment that guides the author through the content creation process. Features include:
Easy authoring through the use of templates, so authors can focus on the content.
Faster authoring - create reusable, interactive courseware 23% faster than MS Word of PowerPoint.
SCORM conformance - Skills M5 has currently been tested as compliant to SCORM 2004, 4th Edition.
Drag 'n Drop - share S1000D data from the R4i CSDB via easy 'drag and drop'.
Interactive Content - link external multimedia objects including images, movies and PowerPoint.
Record of exams - Store all student exam results in the database.
Designed specifically to deliver interactive computer based training for equipment operators, system maintainers and certification-based training, Skills MyClass provides:
Management of students and courses
Self-paced courses with no exams, or scored exams
Instructor managed training whereby exams are scored and student progress monitored
"ADG's online learning system is easy, allowing people to work at their own pace. The additional benefit is that the statistics collected by the system allowed management to understand student performance, giving a benchmark for who is going well and who is struggling with the topics. The upgrade course has been excellent for us, saving time and money with the benefits of data capture on lessons for follow up work."
