The expanded Learning Portal supports blended learning -- combined online and instructor-led training -- through new live training management functionality such as class scheduling, user registration, class role printing, attendance, and grade tracking. The Hughes Learning Portal is an easy-to-use eLearning solution that delivers and tracks training for employees, partners, and customers. Delivered as a hosted solution, the Hughes Learning Portal is especially effective for small- to medium-sized organizations or departments of larger companies that want rich training programs but need to hold down costs; the Hughes Learning Portal requires no IT investments or long-term contracts.

The updated reporting and classroom management functionality adds to the Hughes Learning Portal's broad range of features for creating and delivering:
  • employee, sales, and channel partner training

  • product demonstrations

  • human resources communications

  • dynamic marketing collateral

  • reports and assessments to meet compliance programs; and

  • customer surveys.

The Learning Portal's simple interface makes it easy to store, manage, deliver, and track training and achieve a quick and measurable return on investment. SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) conformance enables course designers to take full advantage of both off-the-shelf contents, as well as wide variety of authoring tools.
