The NKS Knowledge Content Management System, KURIOUS, is a global leader in providing Web 2.0 technology to meet tomorrow’s global knowledge and learning needs.
Traditional approaches to meet an organisation's training, knowledge and RTO requirements require a number of stove-piped, vertical software solutions to meet individual capability requirements. The KURIOUS LCMS+ provides a horizontal, single platform solution addressing all organizational training, knowledge and compliance requirements.
The KURIOUS LCMS+ is a modularized platform used for the management, design, development, access and maintenance of all digital content for education, knowledge management and RTO compliance purposes. Through its interconnectivity with all ‘sources of truth’ (key publications, IETP, doctrine, governance, policy and other documents), KURIOUS offers the ability to track and maintain all content against these, and therefore, assists in enabling Airworthiness, Safety and Compliance.
- ENTIRE LEARNING LOOP
The Kurious platform digitizes the entire learning loop from the Needs Analysis, the building of Training Management Packages, through to the building of content (CBT/CAI), managing the content, providing access to the content (mobile and desktop platforms), evaluation, return on investment and also a communications hub. The Kurious solution we are building encapsulates the entire learning loop and again, provides the ability to build the Training Management Package in one language and deploy it across multiple languages.
- MULTILINGUAL CAPABILITY
The Kurious solution enables the building of content in one language with automatic translation to multiple other languages within a single content package, with language selection available to the user. Most LMS/LCMS solutions develop the content in one language, requiring separate, multiple, manually created copies of the content for each language. This is costly both in development and maintenance.
- ENABLER TO SAFETY AND COMPLIANCE
The Kurious Platform provides for interconnectivity to the 'sources of truth' (being: the Training Management Package, IETP and other doctrine, policy and governance, and all digital media). The Kurious solution achieves this, and therefore provides the ability to track and maintain changes on the fly, and therefore becomes an enabler to Safety and Compliance’ through the ability to provide access to current, accurate, stable content 100% of the time - world wide.
- RTO and CASA COMPLIANT
The KURIOUS LCMS+ Platform meets all criteria required to ensure the system is RTO and CASA compliant.
- DEPLOYABLE ACROSS TODAY’S PLATFORMS
The Kurious solution coded in .Net and HTML5, thereby providing us with the ability to build and deliver content across many mobile platforms, be them iPad, iPhone, Galaxy and Android or what ever the future holds.
- CLOUD ENABLED
Kurious is Cloud ready and available, enabling multiple organisations to use the same system and have their own separate, branded databases.
- CUSTOM LINK CONNECTIVITY WITH LMS'
Kurious contains its own Learning Management System, however, it can be connected to any corporate personnel/HR and training management systems through custom-built connectors.
- DESIGN AND BRANDED TO MEET BESPOKE REQUIREMENTS
The Kurious solution may be deployed in either its generic state or designed and branded to meet the organizational needs. The Kurious platform may be deployed in its entirety, encompassing the entire learning loop, or as individual capabilities to meet, specific needs.
KURIOUS offers all standard LMS and LCMS functionality with the addition of several other system capabilities.
- Communication Hub
- Curriculum Builder
- Content Builder
- Digital Asset Manager
- Evaluation / Analytics Manager
- Through Life Support (Configuration Management)
