“Virtual corporate training has become a staple for businesses across all industries. Over the past two years, virtual and distance learning has grown for a number of reasons, including pandemic-related factors” , said Allen Drennan, co-founder and CTO of Lumicademy, “Lumicademy complements its LMS with these new enhancements to deliver engaging and positive learning experiences that also provide enough flexibility to reach more participants.”
Published a few days ago, Gartner® “Forecast: Enterprise IT spending for government and education markets, worldwide, 2019-2025, 4Q21 update” states “the 4Q21 update reflects increased investment in digital initiatives. Gartner estimates a CAGR of 6.7% for government and education from 2020 to 2025, with overall IT spending expected to reach over $829 billion (constant US dollars) by 2025.”
“Challenges in K-12 education are evolving, but nonetheless continue to be significant,” according to Gartner. “The goal for K-12 CIOs is to leverage all digital investments made to date, identify those that still need to be made, and create an agile and composable digital learning organization.”
For example, Progressive Expert Consulting, Inc. (PEC), a training and technology company, pioneered synchronous and asynchronous training concepts to provide physical learning in a virtual environment. Create a platform solution that would meet the stringent training requirements for the US Department of Defenseincluding the Special Operations Forces Remote Training System (SOFTS), PEC has partnered with Lumicademy and integrated its secure video conferencing platform.
“We needed a platform solution that we could control that would also meet our stringent military-grade security requirements,” said Tim Feng, vice president of PEC. “It needed to be private, so we could choose how and where to install modules, as well as meet critical encryption requirements for sensitive operations. Lumicademy provided the ability to control everything for the user – from high-level video and audio controls, classroom security, to controlling the devices used at each workstation. »
Additionally, PEC also noted that Lumicademy provides secure sharing of sensitive content such as documents, files, and recordings that cannot be streamed over the public internet or stored in uncontrolled cloud data centers.
