What is CMS Pro?
is the premier course management system for computer-based training applications.
CMS Pro, in conjunction with courseware authored with ToolBook II Assistant
or Instructor, provides course delivery, learner access, performance tracking,
and reporting in any multi-user LAN environment.
With CMS Pro, you
can define your courseware by grouping multiple ToolBook II books into
single courses, assign the courseware to any number of learners, collect
the results (scores, number of sessions, completion status, etc.), and
print a wide variety of reports.
CMS Pro Features
The list below highlights just a few of the many features you'll find
in CMS Pro. For in-depth product information, refer to the CMS Pro User
Guide and Product Comparison. For additional
highlights, take a moment to walk through our visual
tour of CMS Pro.
on Windows NT, Novell NetWare, and any peer-to-peer network
The CMS Pro databases and client applications can reside on any computer
in a LAN or peer-to-peer network configuration.
CMS Pro allows you to establish student groups as a new and powerful way
to organize students. For example, you can assign a course to a student
group to automatically assign the course to all students in the group.
Similarly, when you add a student to a group, the student is automatically
assigned to the courses assigned to the group. CMS administrators will
save a great deal of time with this feature.
If you enable the option, any user who has access to the CMS Pro Student
Access application can self-register into the system. The user simply
chooses the "login as new user" option from the program login
screen and enters his or her name. The new student can then access any
of the courses designated for open-enrollment.
If you enable the option, any user on the network can log into the
Student Access application as a guest, which then provides the user with
access to open-enrollment courses. This is a great way to provide access
to your ToolBook courseware without the need to manage unnecessary student
CMS Pro utilizes ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) for all database operations.
This technology provides excellent performance and reliability on all
types of LAN-based networks, including NT and Windows peer networks. It
also means that all database operations are in SQL (Structured Query Language),
which is an industry standard. Your CMS data is stored in the dBase IV
file format, making it easy for you to create custom reports from a wide
range of Windows applications including Microsoft Access, Excel, Crystal
Reports, and many others.
CMS Pro includes an upgraded version of our CMS
Reports Plus software, complete with new reports and easier customization.
Non-ToolBook Course Modules
In previous versions of the CMS, a course was defined as a series of one
or more ToolBook books (called modules). In CMS Pro, you can now choose
any type of file to represent a module of a course. For example, you might
want students to review a Microsoft Word document as part of a course
assignment, or to view streaming-media content in a Web browser. This
feature opens-up lots of possibilities for improving the effectiveness
of your courseware.
A stand-alone version
of CMS Pro is also available. The stand-alone version allows multiple
students to access courseware on a single computer. Besides the single-user
access, this version of CMS Pro includes all other features found in the
full network-capable version of CMS Pro.
