Building a Game-changing Tool
Once Net solutions received the green light, they began work—ultimately delivering a tool with all the features that IsaiX envisioned. Burst included the following cutting-edge features.
User-specific Access Permissions: Users could sign in to see all the documents related to their courses—and only those documents.
Direct Viewing from the App: Users could view documents directly from the app, with important sections highlighted.
Trainer Annotation: Trainers could make notes on the documents, and users could view any notes related to the highlighted sections.
Zooming in on Imagery: Users could zoom in to get a high-resolution view of any images, along with additional information on each image (should the course designer or trainer choose to include it).
User Annotation: The users could add notes to any part of the document, creating personal highlights and notes.
Testing: Within the app, trainers and course designers could set up tests at the end of any course, and users could take these tests to verify what they learned.
Off-line Viewing: While Net Solutions primarily designed the app for online use, the users also had the option to save a given chapter for offline viewing. The course would then be pre-load onto the viewer’s mobile device. In all other respects, the user had the same experience reading a chapter off-line as they did when they worked online.
Full SCORM Compliance: Net Solutions ensured that Burst tools were fully SCORM compliant. So their educational software worked seamlessly with other Learning Management Systems (LMS).
Powerful Back-end Interface: Net Solutions built the back-end, administrative interface with Microsoft Silverlight. This interface empowered administrators to upload new courses, create highlights, add digitized images, create quizzes, and more. It also allowed them to review usage stats and other important information.
