Lumesse Announces CourseBuilder V6.1

By Raju Shanbhag December 16, 2011

Offering improved speed to the customers, Lumesse has launched the latest version of its SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) e-learning authoring platform, CourseBuilder 6.1

Offering customers greater speed, availability and an enhanced user experience through cloud-based technology, this version features a new software architecture. Following the acquisition of Edvantage Group by Lumesse, this is the first product release of the award-winning CourseBuilder authoring platform. The new version is available immediately to all customers, complete with improved database handling capabilities, according to a press release.  

Lumesse CEO Matthew Parker said in a statement, "We are delighted to deliver such a strong update as the first new release from our Learning division under Lumesse ownership. CourseBuilder is unique in combining a rich and powerful content creation platform with the benefits of a SaaS delivery model, making it fast and simple for customers to begin creating and delivering high-quality content from a secure, 100% Web-based system.”

Making it easier and faster to find, create, share and update e-learning content including tests, assessments, simulations and courses, testing has shown that people using certain key functions can expect substantially faster response times. CourseBuilder V6.1 also adds a new archive functionality that will enable users to create a full backup version of courses that includes not only the content, but also the complete development record of the course including all media elements, comments, tasks and revisions. Archives are allowed to be stored either on the server or locally.

Recently, the company successfully acquired SaaS-based e-learning experts Edvantage Group. With this acquisition, Edvantage Group will bring Lumesse world-class capabilities in learning management, content development and management, online content delivery and custom course development. Both the companies, since the initial announcement of the acquisition in early October, have been working on integration plans as well as joint commercial opportunities. With this completed acquisition, Lumesse will be able to broaden its products further.
