Of the more than 2,000 learners who consume courses on the Adobe Learning Manager, about 95% are employees of PrismHR’s customers. PrismHR software is critical to these learners’ day-to-day jobs. Therefore, their training needs to be in-depth and tailored specifically for their roles, whether they’re payroll specialists or system administrators.
Subject matter experts quickly learned to use Adobe Captivate to create visually rich eLearning modules. About 160 modules have been developed to date, with twice that amount waiting for final touches. The modules are grouped into courses and published in minutes through the Adobe Learning Manager LMS. Unlike other LMS solutions, Adobe Learning Manager uses the Fluidic Player to seamlessly play any type of content, including video, PowerPoint files, and MP4 recordings, without cumbersome downloads.
“Probably 98% of our training content for customers is video based, showing learners step-by-step instructions about how to use our software,” says Pataky. “In other solutions, it could be tricky to work with video; we had to get the settings just right or it wouldn’t play. The Fluidic Player in Adobe Learning Manager allows us to use any type of video without struggling with technical settings.”
While content is currently designed with desktops in mind to mimic the software experience, PrismHR is also interested in creating more interactive, mobile-friendly lessons in the future. With the Adobe Learning Manager, responsive content can be published for any device, eliminating the need to create multiple versions of a module and cutting course creation time.
Adobe Learning Manager also gives customers the tools they need to manage learner performance. With greater visibility into how many courses employees have completed, many managers tie progress into certifications and employee goals during yearly assessments.
