Support for Standards
Any organization seeking to protect its learning assets should require the use of standard-compliant technologies. Kenexa leads the way with aggressive support for government mandated and industry standards:
SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004 CERTIFIED
SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a group of standards that combine to describe a methodology for content packaging and run-time communication and tracking between content and an LMS.
Kenexa LCMS also provide tools to move older SCORM, non-SCORM, and desktop content, such as PowerPoint and third party courseware, to a SCORM 2004 format.
The formal name for IMS is IMS Global Learning Consortium, Inc., also sometimes referred to as IMS/GLC. The original name, when IMS first started in 1997 was the Instructional Management Systems (IMS) project. IMS is concerned with establishing interoperability for learning systems and learning content and the enterprise integration of these capabilities. So please, just call us IMS. (SCORM is a container standard which includes the IMS standards.)
The AICC exists to provide and promote information, guidelines, and standards that result in the cost-effective implementation of computer-based training (CBT) for the aviation industry.
Kenexa is actively involved in the AICC and has participated in the “Products Designed to AICC Guidelines” program.
PENS is a standard describing a method to push content to an application and receive content from another application. The value of PENS for our customers is that the process becomes invisible to the user providing a seamless interaction between systems.
An XML schema describing a multitude of question types so that question data can more easily be moved from one system to another.
Section 508 COMPLIANT
Section 508, an amendment to the United States Workforce Rehabilitation Act of 1973, is a federal law mandating that all electronic and information technology developed, procured, maintained, or used by the federal government be accessible to people with disabilities. Kenexa is committed to meeting and exceeding these guidelines in our products and solutions. We have incorporated accessibility best practices throughout our development and quality assurance organizations and have invested in quality testing tools to confirm that accessibility guidelines are met. Beyond the mandated compliance, Kenexa recognizes that universal design and accessibility are good business practices.
At Kenexa, we are monitoring S1000D from an elearning perspective. S1000D is a standard that is designed to meet the needs of documentation developers and enables the creation of technical documents in a dynamic manner based on criteria such as product information, logistics and other factors.
Kenexa sees synergies between the S1000D standard and our approach to the dynamic delivery of training content. There are tremendous benefits in being able to create compelling training material from a single source. To further support and enhance Kenexa’s capabilities in this area, we closely monitor S1000D developments through attendance at S1000D focused conferences and meetings. Kenexa is actively evaluating its product architecture and roadmap to move forward with this vision in future releases.
