Xy5, the most modern CMS technology designed for learning is available today.


Xyleme, the Learning Content Management System for the world’s top organizations, officially launched the new release of its SaaS platform, “Xy5”. The customer launch event, held on February 18th, included a live demonstration of the new functionality and technology, all to the delight of the attendees.

According to an event poll, 56% of Xyleme customers are well underway on the journey to delivering mobile-ready learning content.  Xyleme demonstrated how the new features will enable an organization to rapidly author interactive content that performs beautifully on any desktop, tablet or smart phone device. 

Greg Schottland, VP of Operations at Xyleme, demonstrated the new authoring interface.  “This is one of the biggest things you will see in authoring learning content in the history of Xyleme, but it’s very fair to say in the history of the market.”  Schottland explained that the goal of the new Editor was to make it easy for content developers to create scalable, reusable and measurable content that works in print, web and mobile from a single source. 

David Cameron, Senior Manager of Global Learning and Development at Dell, made this comment following the launch presentation.  "Extremely impressed with the new release from Xyleme, the content is stunning and the new templates are jaw dropping. The web interface is a giant leap forwards that will help us accelerate our adoption as it makes everything intuitive and simple."

Schottland also demonstrated the Smart Updates feature, showing how content developers can immediately deliver content updates to a single learning object used in multiple courses on many LMSs — all at once. 

Other Xyleme customers said the biggest advantage of Xy5 will be increased productivity and efficiency gained from infrastructure improvements and the ease-of-use.  More than half added that the improvements will enable them to rapidly expand adoption and collaboration among Instructional Designers and achieve greater content reuse.

At the event, Xyleme CEO, Mark Hellinger, positioned Xy5 as “the most modern CMS technology designed for learning available in the industry today.”
