The IN OST Professional Development Community is right up our alley--and the customer service is great! In fact, we are using the group options so our team can view one course, have a discussion and spread learning over a few weeks! Then everyone gets to take a separate post-test! My team is sold!

SCORM is the de facto industry standard for tracking eLearning. Our site is integrated with the SCORM Engine, which means our system is fully compliant with SCORM and AICC courses.
Every course you take is tracked for performance using our SCORM-compliant LMS. This means you can review your performance and, if you are a nation admin, your members’ performance as well.
Want to add a course to your custom site quickly and cheaply? Our DIY tool makes it simple to upload a PowerPoint, convert it into a course, and add it straight into your site. You will then be able to track the performance of every learner who takes it.
Joining is simple and affordable.
