Mentor Graphics was ready to take the next step in its online training business…but commercial learning management software wasn’t. Instead, a small team of Mentor web developers hand-picked open-source microapps and industry standard cloud services to build a learning center that’s flexible, scalable, and adaptable. Mentor Learning Center provides a self-paced training environment for tech professionals, with a multi-level subscription model, customizable learning paths, and a global delivery model that automatically shifts to the server closest to each student for best performance. The center’s subscription model includes a virtual lab, giving each student a fully configured cloud-based hands-on lab environment that can be run from any web connection. Students can easily find courses through SEO landing pages, try sample chapters before they buy, and track their progress through a personalized dashboard. Join Mentor’s Ron Fuller and Lane Giles as they demonstrate how they wove industry-standard tools such as WordPress, Magento e-commerce, and Amazon Web Services, into a complete training management system.

TSIA is well worth the investment. This is the one place where you can come and get a fusion of ideas that you can then marry up to the goals and objectives of your organization and boil that down into several actionable plans that you can implement over the next 6 months to a year.
