Horten, Norway and Vancouver, Canada – Computer-based training (CBT) specialist, Seagull AS, and Marine Learning Systems, developer of advanced maritime-specific learning management system (LMS) technology, announced today that they are partnering to provide the full library of Seagull learning content on the MarineLMS training platform. The partnership will provide an integrated solution to the cruise and ferry industries enabling rapid deployment of eLearning programs with course content on land and on-board, with or without connectivity. The system will also provide metrics and analytics which identify training issues before they become performance or safety problems.
According to Seagull Managing Director Roger Ringstad, “For customers using LMS from MarineLMS this solution means they can access all our training content via their existing learning platform, which is a huge benefit. All Seagull training is of the highest standard covering relevant STCW2010 requirements and other relevant Maritime legislations.”
According to Marine Learning Systems CEO Murray Goldberg, “For Seagull cruise and ferry customers, the partnerships means the ability to deploy both Seagull content and their own vessel-specific training content on one LMS. For MarineLMS customers, it means they will be able to select from Seagull’s library of eLearning content for rapid training program development. For all customers, it means world-class maritime content running on world-class maritime LMS technology.”
The partnership is effective immediately.
