Lotus Releases Training Platform

Lotus Development Corp. today launched its Lotus LearningSpace Anytime 3 application development platform for training applications on the Web.

The product, which supports third-party and customer applications, as well as Lotus applications, lets students use a Web browser to view live training sessions over the Internet. It also monitors results from the classes, saves assignments, and allows for greater collaboration.

With the upgrade, IT professionals can participate in live chats with other students and the instructor. Instructors can also give quizzes to students participating in a live session. The software sends responses to the instructor and stores them, letting the instructor not only view the students' responses, but also see who responded and when. Lotus says it has improved the Web performance of the product.

Gayle Tennan-Spak, VP of the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, N.J., has been using the product to develop its WebMaster 2000 certification program. Unlike other online certification programs, she says, LearningSpace 3 makes it possible to create courses that are interactive, instructor-led, and not self-paced.

Lotus Anytime server is priced around $10,500, plus $300 per user. An extranet server costs $13,000 and allows unlimited external use for nonrevenue generating courses. Educational institutions receive a 50% discount on the server and per-user fees.
