Rich media, such as live and on-demand streaming video and audio, provides users with a more complete learning experience by synchronizing additional text, graphics, interactive components, and control elements with video and audio. Benefits of using rich media for employee and partner training include saving time by reducing or eliminating the need to travel, lower costs for employee and partner training, and the ability to capture the attention of e-commerce customers.

Integrating rich media communications with a Learning Management System (LMS) or Content Management System (CMS) can help companies solve management and reporting problems commonly associated with e-learning applications. Potential benefits of integrating the two learning content management applications include the ability to:

  • Track content access and provide access history reports
  • Organize content into structured curriculums
  • Find content easily
  • Share content among authoring groups
  • Provide a managed content review process
