Plateau Systems, a provider of software for developing, managing, and optimizing organizational skills and talent, and SkillSoft PLC, a provider of content resources and complementary technologies for integrated enterprise learning, have announced an integrated content and learning management solution. This integrated offering will be available from Plateau in late summer 2005 and is designed to automate the process of delivering content resources throughout an organization. This content will include a SkillSoft catalog of courses and simulations as well as unabridged business and IT titles from Books24x7, in addition to all internally customer-developed custom content. An advanced search capability will allow users to browse and search all content from within Plateau's Learning Management System (LMS).
With this solution, information about all licensed Skillsoft content is automatically loaded into catalogs within Plateau's LMS, making it immediately available to users. Using SkillSoft's advanced Search-and-Learn technology, a topic search may return chapter-level content for SkillSoft courses, books, and simulations, sorted in order of relevancy. This search engine is now embedded in Plateau's LMS, allowing users to launch content, post it to their individual development plans, and link it to competencies. Plateau is a charter member of the SkillSoft Alliance for Integrated Learning, a program created for SkillSoft technology partners designed to promote seamless integration among learning content resources, learning management systems, and other learning technologies.
