September 17, 2004

GeoMaestroâ„¢ is an Internet-hosted human capital management and development platform that enables organizations to capture, create, manage and share knowledge to improve workforce productivity, accelerate critical business processes, and drive organizational performance. The system centralizes and automates the entire learning management process, making the administration of enterprise learning and development both effective and efficient. The GeoLearning platform is also compliant with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which requires all federal agencies to implement information technology accessible to persons with disabilities.

In addition to the GeoMaestroâ„¢ learning management system (LMS), the E-Learning@DOC online campus also includes the following GeoLearning modules:

  • MyPlan to track and manage individual employee development plans.
  • Class & Event Scheduler to administer traditional classroom training.
  • Ad Hoc Enterprise Reporting Engine that provides flexible and dynamic Web-based reporting with unlimited ad hoc report generation capabilities.
  • CompetencyPlus to provide robust competency management capabilities and enable competency-based HR processes.
GeoLearning also provides Internet hosting, security and maintenance services for the initiative, as well as 24×7 Help Desk support for Department of Commerce employees and administrators.

The DOC program is part of the federal government’s Gov Online Learning Center e-Training Initiative. The Gov Online Learning Center at www.golearn.gov, which is also powered by GeoLearning’s GeoMaestro™ LMS, provides one-stop access to e-training services for more than 1.8 million people employed by the federal government, making it the e-learning industry’s largest implementation. The e-Training Initiative and GOLC is an effort by the Office of Management & Budget and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management to simplify and unify e-training services across federal government and is one of 24 e-government initiatives that support President George W. Bush’s Management Agenda.
