The Ensignia® Learning Management System (LMS) makes it easy to manage the assignment and delivery of learning content (such as courses and assessments) to learners, also providing extensive monitoring and reporting functions.
If you have already developed or obtained SCORM-conformant learning packages, you can import these packages into the Ensignia LMS and make the content available to learners.
If you do not yet have learning content, MCQ International offers content development services, and/or you could use the LMS in conjunction with the Ensignia® Learning Content Management System to create your own learning packages.
