Offline Course Delivery on CD-ROM
WebMentor Player allows course providers to distribute courses on CD-ROM.
This means that students with poor access to a network, or no access at all,
can take the same courses as students on an intranet or the Internet.
If you need to record a student's progress and performance in the offline
course, WebMentor Player also provides records management features that synchronize
the offline course database with a WebMentor LMS server when a network connection
is established. The Player currently synchronizes files using email. Support
for Web and direct database-to-database synchronization are planned for future
WebMentor Player is also useful for delivering courses that make substantial
use of high-bandwidth multimedia content. Such courses may be more practical
to run either partially or entirely from CD-ROM, when bandwidth limitations
make it impractical to do so from the Internet. For example, a course provider
may create a hybrid course that draws large multimedia files from the CD
and the rest of the course components from a WebMentor
