Learning + Content Management Systems

Start-to-Finish LMS + CMS

Solutions and Integration

For most online learning initiatives, organizations need a learning management system, or LMS, to deliver and manage their e-learning offering. An effective LMS tracks learner experience and mastery of knowledge and skills. Whether you already have a suitable LMS in place or need one as part of your project, Illumina can help. We always ask the right questions up front in order to determine the best solution.

Integrating Our Courseware

with Your Existing LMS

We’ve developed courseware that has been successfully deployed on a continuously growing variety of cloud-based learning management systems and platforms, including Docebo, Cornerstone, SuccessFactors, Saba, LearnUpon, TalentLMS, OracleLMS, Adobe Captivate Prime, Blackboard and SumTotal, as well as open-source LMS platforms like Moodle and Drupal LMS.

These integrations have used standards like AICC, SCORM 1.2 and 2004, as well as the newer Tin Can/xAPI (Experience API) standard to enable users to launch learning modules and to record everything from completion status, score and training date/time to a wealth of intricate data about their performance within specific interactivities. On certain LMS/platform configurations, Illumina has had to develop custom native API (application programming interface) code in order to address compatibility issues, to meet specific client environment requirements, or to capture and record additional data items.

Implementing and Deploying a

Custom LMS

We’re frequently asked to develop and deploy custom learning management systems for customers who don’t yet have one or who – for any number of reasons – find that their existing LMS won’t meet specific objectives. We have extensive experience with such implementations, particularly using the open-source Moodle LMS and Drupal CMS with LMS extensions, as well as third-party cloud-based LMS platforms such as TalentLMS. At Illumina, we pride ourselves on creating unique, custom-branded and themed LMS sites that provide visually appealing and user-friendly learning platforms for our clients’ courseware.

Our custom LMS deployments typically include features such as pre- and post-tests and assessments, discussion forums, printable certificates of completion, responsive functionality for tablet and mobile platform use, feedback surveys, learner note-taking/journaling, and numerous additional learner resources. And we can launch it within our client’s own IT environment – using Single Sign-On – or a third-party leading hosting provider. The technical team at Illumina supports you throughout the process – even long after launch.

For those organizations that don’t need the capabilities of an LMS, we offer strategies for deploying courseware and learning content to your company’s content management system (CMS).

Content Management

Systems (CMS)

In addition to developing learning management systems and deploying courses on LMS systems, the Illumina staff have frequently been asked to develop web sites and web-based learning applications on content management systems (CMS) such as Drupal, WordPress and other platforms. These kinds of systems, when developed properly, can enable people who don’t have technical skills to maintain and update their own content and educational resources over time.

What our clients say about us

“We think very highly of Illumina. We have multiple learning management systems, so we have to deploy different ways, and Illumina’s team has been very accommodating, deploying on one LMS, republishing on another LMS with a different patch. Illumina has been able to work very well with our LMS vendors.

“One of my colleagues in the clinical space is an e-learning guru. He’s reached out to Illumina on numerous occasions to ask for advice.”
