SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- There are hundreds of online learning management systems on the market, and most come with a hefty price tag – from $10,000 to six figures. Many also come with a steep learning curve, requiring users to absorb new content management techniques or engage expensive consultants to build custom web training programs. ProProfs.com is out to level the playing field with Training Maker, an affordable way to create an online course that was built, like all ProProfs.com products, around the company's core values of simplicity and functionality.
ProProfs.com is the company that reinvented online test taking with its flagship Quiz Maker product, which users have accessed to create more than 100,000 quizzes and millions of questions for over a million quiz takers. Perfect for the expert as well as the novice, Quiz Maker makes creating tests easy and is an essential part of the Training Maker product.
"Testing plays an integral role in the teaching and training process," said ProProfs.com founder Sameer Bhatia. "And yet most of the large, expensive learning management systems on the market either don't support testing at all or treat it as an afterthought. Training Maker comes bundled with the world's most powerful testing engine, enabling instructors to easily gauge learning levels, conduct course evaluations and much more. This gives instructors the knowledge and control they need to be effective."
Training Maker is a hosted, cloud-based service that is amazingly intuitive and easy to use and can be accessed from anywhere, anytime. Instead of requiring instructors to learn complicated content management system functions to build their courses, Training Maker leverages tools everyone already uses, allowing instructors to add content in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and PDF documents, images and YouTube videos to create multimedia online training courses.
Training Maker works across all platforms and devices, including Mac and PC, desktops, smartphones and mobile tablets – all without special coding or technical knowledge on the part of the educator or learner. Instructors can simply upload existing files, links and images to create courses, and for learners, it just works – there is no special software to download.
Training Maker also allows instructors to brand their online courses, protect privacy and ensure security. Courses can be made private with password-protected access only, and instructors can add a custom look and feel with logos and other branding elements. ProProfs.com supports course development in more than 50 languages to accommodate global training needs.
Additional features include tracking capabilities so that instructors can see who is accessing courses, what progress they've made, how much time they've spent on the course and the students' location and IP address. Training Maker offers extensive analytics to assist instructors at every phase of the learning process, including tools that identify knowledge gaps, alert instructors to possible cheating, evaluate questions on a difficulty scale and much more.
The market value of branded learning management systems that enable instructors to conduct business training worldwide, develop and manage online courses for students across multiple platforms and devices, access a powerful testing engine to gauge learning progress and analytics to track program effectiveness can easily reach six figures. ProProfs.com offers all of this and more for an incredibly affordable monthly fee, and instructors can choose the right Training Maker plan to meet their unique learning needs.
