Store & share PowerPoint files in the course repository – so all trainers are using the latest version of course materials, whether online or in the classroom.
TrainCaster's build-in quiz tool lets you build all types of quizzes and assessments. Create question banks around specific topics - and use those to randomly build a quiz at the end of the topic. You specify how many questions to include, the passing threshold and if answers should be randomized.
You can then leverage the question banks to build a final exam comprised of a specific number of questions from each bank. This helps extend the life of your course material, and ensure that trainees are getting the most from the course.
All quizzes & exams are auto-corrected - which allows you to include links back into the material if a wrong answer is selected. You can tailor comments to point out the problem with each wrong response as well.
And finally, quizzes and exams can include many types of questions - ranging from true/false, multiple choice, to likert, matching and choose all that apply.
SCORM is ADL's Sharable Content Object Reference Model, which integrates a set of related technical standards, specifications, and guidelines designed to increase accessibility, interoperability, durability, and reusability of training content. TrainCaster LMS is a SCORM compliant learning management system - both Version 1.2 and 2004. This means you can import SCORM content into a course at any time. SCORM enhances your ability to provide engaging and relevent content to your learners.
You can create SCORM compliant content using many popular desktop tools, including Captivate, Articulate, and Camtasia.
TrainCaster automatically tracks when training is due - either because it has just been assigned to a trainee and must be completed within a specific timeframe; or because the course is required at specific intervals. When a training due date is approaching, TrainCaster sends out a customized training reminder message to let the trainee know that training is due.
Auto-generated emails notify trainees about enrollments, pass/fail results, due dates and training expiration dates. Each of these notifications is personalized and addressed to the specific trainee. You can customize the information that is included in the email as well, allowing you to establish, and/or comply with, company standards when communicating with trainees.
More than just training reminders, TrainCaster sends alerts when training is overdue. The alert email is automatically sent to the trainee and supervisor. If you prefer not to send alerts, you can turn off the notifications.
Upon successful completion of a course trainees receive a course completion alert. This message is customizable, and you can specify when the message is sent and to whom.
Create a library of supplemental course resources to shares with trainees. Web-based training courses can include additional resources - web link, PowerPoint files, Word documents, PDF's. These resources are accessible to trainees on the course launch page, and via the Course Resources button displayed throughout the course.
As a training subject matter expert (SME) share training materials with other trainers, like the source content for the web-based course; classroom course materials - PowerPoint files, handouts, word documents, PDF's that contain course related information like manuals, documentation or schematics; supplemental information that you want to share with other instructors - web links, additional resources.
Add a post-training survey to your course to see how well the content met trainee expectations. Solicit comments and ratings, and review the responses via the Course Information Report.
Adding a discussion forum to your course is as easy as a click of a button. The forum is moderated by you, so you ensure that comments are relevant, respectful and adding to the sense of community within your organization.
