The Problem:

Organizations around the world need to manage e-Learning. The leading standard for the communication between the content and the Learning Management System (LMS) is the SCORM Runtime Environment. Tracker.Net applies the awesome power of ASP.NET and Microsoft® SQL Server™ to this task. Come join customers like Circle K, British Airways, Syncrude Canada, YMCA of the USA, Long Island Rail Road, American Signature, Mac's Convenience Stores, L-3 Communications, St. Francis Healthcare, Copenhagen Airports, Drug Free Business, various government agencies, and many more!

The Solution:

Tracker.Net implements all mandatory and optional communication elements listed in the SCORM 1.2 and 2004 Runtime Environment Specification. Rather than messing with SCORM manifest files, you use Tracker.Net's Administrator interface to define lesson locations, organize lessons into courses, set passing scores, and more. You can even set lesson and course completion status via the Administrator in addition to having it set automatically via SCORM. Tracker.Net manages ToolBook HTML, Flash, Dreamweaver, Lectora, Captivate, ASP.NET, and any other content that can communicate via SCORM.

User Comments

  • We’ve completed our study/evaluation of LMSs, starting with over 70, down to 25, and then a short-list of 5 vendors, to a final 2 vendors.
  • We use Tracker.Net for our web-based e-Learning system and TBK Tracker for our LAN-based systems, both from Platte Canyon of Colorado Springs, CO. Both of these systems were out of the box solutions and required our IT department to partner with our training department on adapting the system to our infrastructure. But the LMS has been easy to use, is very stable, and delivers many features of other systems that require heavy front-end engineering work and require on-going seat licenses, neither of which were required by the Platte Canyon solutions. I can strongly recommend their products for an inexpensive off the shelf solution for LMS in both the web-based and LAN configurations. We have had the web-based solution for 5 years and the LAN based system for over 10 years.
  • I can only speak from personal experience about the LMS I use. I use Tracker.Net from Platte Canyon Multimedia Software Corp. I use it daily and it works great.
  • I am getting familiar with Tracker.Net and we really like it. It seems to fit our needs and is easy to use.
  • I'm really impressed at the ease of use and technical reliability of the product. If you haven't already I'd suggest you try and get Tracker.Net under the noses of Brandon Hall and others, as I really have never seen an LMS so simple to use.
