SDI Releases XML-Based E-Learning Offering

SDI's Doctrina® Blends Structured DITA XML with Robust E-Learning Features for Computer-Based Training, Web-Based Training and Mobile Learning

Piscataway, NJ, July 21, 2013 --( SDI has developed and released an XML-driven E-Learning offering named Doctrina® which outputs Computer-Based Training (CBT), Web-Based Training (WBT) and Mobile Learning (M-Learning) for smartphones and tablets.

Doctrina reuses Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) XML content to rapidly output robust E-Learning modules sourced directly from clients' existing technical documentation and added learning content and media components. The output E-Learning modules, which are available in both Flash and HTML5, contain expert instructional systems design best practices, professional voiceover narration, 3D animations and graphics, green screen studio video capture and interactive learning checks.

Doctrina packages capabilities that are usually available only by buying, using and maintaining multiple high-end tool sets. In addition, these disparate tools do not offer the single source content management and tightly integrated functionality and process automation found in Doctrina. As a complete end-to-end solution, Doctrina is a very cost-effective and fast turnaround offering that satisfies the E-Learning needs and objectives for the majority of SDI’s industry-diverse, high-end customer base.

Advanced features unique to Doctrina include self-selectable intelligent configuration options, customizable quick-launch icons and compatibility with a number of learning standards including SCORM 2004, Tin Can and AICC to support Learning Management System (LMS) integration.

A demonstration of Doctrina, as well as an in-depth overview of its benefits, is available at: .

Tamas Rasch, SDI's Senior Vice President of Global Business Development, said, "Doctrina is the first widely available commercial offering to connect XML documentation with E-Learning and M-Learning. Users benefit not only from SDI's documentation expertise but also its team's significant training background. Because Doctrina is provided as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, customers receive around-the-clock access to the latest tools, techniques and subject matter experts. At the same time, Doctrina reduces costs and development time, making it a best-value training solution for any firm that has already invested in DITA."

An added benefit of Doctrina is its ability to seamlessly interface with translation and localization capabilities through XLIFF data. SDI and its strategic partners are positioned to provide support for over 30 languages, making Doctrina a strong fit for global initiatives.
