DigitalThink will bump up capacity, speeds performance and adds more reporting capabilities in a new version of its hosted L5 Learning Delivery System to be launched on Friday.E-learning vendor DigitalThink Inc. on Friday plans to announce a new version of its service for delivering courses that can handle more content, more quickly. Version 2.1 of the San Francisco companys L5 Learning Delivery System, available on Friday, features a 300 percent increase in the amount of content it can deliver and a 40 percent improvement in processing speed, DigitalThink will announce. The latest release also includes new reporting capabilities that DigitalThink incorporated from its acquisition in April of Horn Interactive, a provider of simulation for e-learning. L5 already could assess the performance of users as they worked through e-learning coursework, but Version 2.1 extends those reporting capabilities to simulations as well, said Todd Clyde, DigitalThinks vice president of products.
"It really opens up a world of being able to use simulations for assessment," he said.
