SumTotal showcase new platform at Learning Technologies 2005

SumTotal Systems are showcasing its new platform, the SumTotal Enterprise Suite 7.0, at the Learning Technologies 2005 conference which takes place today and tomorrow at London's Olympia 2 exhibition centre.

SumTotal Enterprise Suite 7.0 is the first major product release for the company following its formation by the merger of Docent and Click2learn in March 2004.

"After months of strategy and planning, hard work from our product management and R & D teams, and extensive feedback from customers, partners and analysts, we are proud to bring to market what many have told us is this industry's most groundbreaking solution to-date," said R. Andrew Eckert, SumTotal CEO.

"SumTotal 7.0 is the culmination of the product vision we established when our two companies merged earlier this year. We are delighted to show attendees at this year's Learning Technologies conference one of the most powerful tools they can deploy to accelerate readiness, business performance and profits in their organisations."

SumTotal will be celebrating the launch by inviting show visitors to join the company at its stand between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. each day for a complementary glass of champagne. Visitors to the stand also can register to win a variety of prizes.

The Football Association, one of SumTotal customers, are taking part in the Learning Technologies conference. Danielle Every, assistant technical coordinator at the Football Association, will present "Making Learning Engaging," on Thursday, January 27, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

"Engaging learners in a controlled corporate environment is one thing; doing it with the general public is another," said Every. "Yet that is what the Football Association has achieved with its online and live courses. Most of these lead to qualifications, and yet many of FA Learning's 30,000 users have no formal qualifications."

Every will cover lessons learned from FA's learning program, including:

  • FA Learning's remit and audience
  • Engaging those who have rejected learning elsewhere
  • Moving the physical online
  • Lessons learned and how they are reflected in new course design
  • Qualifications

SumTotal are also taking part in the free seminar programme. The company's senior director of product management, Jon Ciampi, will deliver a free presentation in the Seminar Theatre on Wednesday, January 26, from 1:15 - 1:45 p.m. The session is entitled "The Future of Learning Technology".
