Knowledgelinx and Sageware Collaborate to Deliver a Taxonomy-Based Solution

March 7, 2002

Knowledgelinx Corporation and Sageware recently announced they are partnering to provide customers with a new taxonomy-driven E-Learning offering. This new solution will aid in search and reuse of knowledge assets, automatic tagging of content and will improve the overall value of knowledge assets within the Knowledgelinx system.

“Our new offering will support simple knowledge transfer solutions that decrease costs while increasing end user productivity,” says John Hudson President and CEO of Knowledgelinx. The ability to identify and find content quickly through effective taxonomy has significant benefits. In particular organizations–and their instructional designers, training managers, and HR directors can benefit from extensive learning object reuse.

With this partnership, organizations will be able to describe, index, and search within the Knowledgelinx system, which is an essential part of object reuse. The collaboration will also allow organizations to be as granular as they want and this granularity makes it easier to reuse digital material. The learner will also benefit from metadata tagging that allows them to quickly locate any information in the system.

“We are pleased to partner with Knowledgelinx to provide an award- winning E-Learning content management toolset,” says John Lehman, CEO of Sageware. “The combination of our two solutions will allow customers to maximize their digital assets while quickly delivering the relevant content needed by their user community.”
