  • Features
  • Highly Scalable and Fault Tolerant - The engine is developed using Java Servlets and its architecture is based on the J2EE standard. As a result of these development and deployment choices, LearnITy is well equipped to address issues of scalability and availability. Clustering techniques may be employed for supporting load balancing, multilayer switches, and SANs.
  • Standard compliant - The engine is compliant with IMS and ADL SCORM 1.2 (both the Run-time API as well as the content packaging aspects) international standards.
  • Exhaustive Media Support - The engine supports the delivery and management of all types of media including HTML, Flash, Powerpoint, Audio, Video, Authorware, SVG, etc.
  • Adaptive Content Delivery - The engine supports customised learning paths by implementing 3 types of adaptive bevaviour: adaptive content selection, adaptive navigation, and adaptive content presentation. Hence, different delivery strategies may be used for learners with different attributes (e.g., learning styles - inductive vs. deductive, learning approach - deep vs. shallow, orientation - kinesthetic vs. visual, etc.). All this is supported without the requirement for any programming.
  • Virtual Courses - Supports WWW-based virtual courses by accepting URLs as "content" associated with topics and sub-topics of a course.
  • Notes Tool - The engine provides a notebook that allows learners to keep notes for each course he/she is registered for. If a learner shares his/her notes then they become available for viewing by all learners registered for that course.
  • Integration with QTI compliant Assessment Engine - Whenever the engine finds that it has to deliver an assessment, it passes control to an Assessment Engine that reads the assessment (XML) file and generates dynamic HTML for interacting with he learner. Once the learner finishes the assessment, the Assessment Engine passes back control to the Content Delivery Engine along with the result of the assessment. The result is stored in the learner model. Any assessment engine that is fully compliant with the IMS QTI standard may be used; the engine comes with built–in support for the LearnITy Assessor.
