CM Group has announced that it is now making Luminosity, the distance learning authoring software available to the University and higher education sector.

Originally, Luminosity was designed for those corporate customers wanting to significantly increase their use of eLearning but at the same time reduce their course creation costs and timescales. Following its success in the Private sector, Universities and Colleges can now benefit from the product to experience significant increases in the scale and scope of their use of eLearning.

Lecturers and students are able to design, create, review and deliver specific and relevant courses through a centrally managed environment. All courses are automatically SCORM and accessibility compliant which means that they will run on Moodle or Blackboard environments as well as the Luminosity hosted Learning Management System. The whole courseware development process can be dramatically speeded up and CM Group offers a variety of pricing and hosting models to suit the needs of individual institutions.

Benefits of Luminosity include the product’s extreme ease of use and the flexibility of the authoring software to create high quality and engaging interactive courses quickly and efficiently. Course updates are fast and painless, meaning that the eLearning can be maintained to reflect the very latest thinking. Even staff with no particular IT skills can easily use the software and be productive within a couple of hours, and the wealth of functionality in the software means that even experienced eLearning authors will love using it.

Managing Director Tim Buff said, “With Luminosity, Universities and Colleges can experience a quick and cost effective way to develop and deliver eLearning. This technology facilitates cost savings on a significant scale, whilst increasing the quality of the courseware produced - very useful when budgets are increasingly under pressure.”
