Halogen Software Partners with ej4 to Provide Access to Leading Video Learning Content

Alliance enables Halogen Software customers to leverage cutting edge video-based courseware and measure training effectiveness via a performance-based learning system

Orlando, FL, ASTD Conference, Booth 1245 - May 24, 2011 – Talent Management leader Halogen Software, Inc. and ej4, a leading provider of video courseware, have partnered to provide users ofHalogen’s award winning learning management system seamless access to cutting edge video training courses from eJ4. Through this partnership, Halogen Software customers can leverage thousands of ej4’s video-based courses to deliver practical training and development to employees via Halogen eLearning Manager™. This closed loop learning experience means organizations can directly measure the impact of video learning on employee performance.

ej4 offers a unique approach to training through the company’s J4™ videos which are concise, high impact training segments that enhance skills and behavior, rather than simply teach concepts and theories. The alliance was forged based on the compelling ability to measure the effectiveness of these training vehicles on employee performance.

“While an increasing number of organizations are leveraging video and social learning experiences to support employee development, the integration of ej4 courseware with Halogen eLearning Manager can help make this learning more meaningful because courses are specifically linked to the competencies that they address,” says Dan Cooper, Partner and CEO of ej4.

With siloed HR systems - where learning and performance are not thoughtfully linked - HR, managers and employees must use disparate systems to address development needs. Unlike this siloed or loosely integrated approach, Halogen offers a purpose-built talent management system that uniquely links learning with performance. This seamless connection between Halogen eLearning Manager and Halogen eAppraisal™ means customers can link ej4 courses to specific competencies within a few clicks, to align video training with real business needs.

“We are focused on helping our customers deliver training and development plans that demonstrate a return on their training investments,” says Donna Ronayne, Vice President Marketing and Business Development, Halogen Software. “By integrating ej4 video courseware with Halogen eLearning Manager, our customers can provide high-impact training that is relevant and timely to their employees and that positively impacts business results.”
