The global learning company, eXact learning solutions, has recently updated the ‘HM’ content model associated with its learning content management system (LCMS).


Now in its third version, the content model – known as ‘HM’ – is intended to help users create engaging learning materials which are delivered online.


Fabrizio Giorgini, eXact learning solutions’ R&D Manager, said, “HM3.0 lets users choose and personalize each learning package’s ‘skin’. Indeed, we’ve introduced two new skins in addition to the standard – ‘classic’ – skin.


“There’s a business skin, for use with content that targets a corporate audience,” he added. “It includes all the tools present in eXact’s classic skin, including navigation, resources, glossary, help section and print.


“There’s also a ‘kids’ skin, which is appropriate for those – notably in the education sector – who create content for pupils and younger students. The skin incorporates commands in a control panel and can be used by learners ranging from toddlers to adults, scaling according to awareness and skills.”

In addition, HM3.0’s grid and panel allow users – with one click of a mouse – to modify the colours and any logo displayed on screen. HM operates seamlessly with the other products in eXact learning solutions’ suite – notably the eXact learning Packager authoring tool and its online counterpart, Online Editor.


To help explain this technology – along with other aspects of authoring on the eXact learning solutions’ platform – to users and potential users, the Italy-based eXact learning solutions is staging a webinar on 27th July. The webinar is another in the company’s summer series, called ‘eXactly on Wednesdays’.


Federico Dondero, of eXact learning solutions, said: “While the focus of the session is on HM 3.0, the webinar – eXactly on Wednesdays: HM 3.0 – will also explain some of the contemporary features of eXact learning solutions’ authoring tools and LCMS.”
