June 9, 2010 – Altus Learning takes a company’s audio, video, slide decks, and mixed media, and makes it searchable based on the spoken word. This allows companies to re-purpose expensive videos for future use.

NetworkWorld’s article, “Full text search for rich media content improves productivity” shares this best practice approach. Profiling companies like Cisco and General Motors who have countless new products and instruction/training videos with each launch to catalog, Atlus Learning Systems software seems to be the perfect answer. Altus hosts all the content to make it available on demand to the designated target audience and provides a full text transcript with each item it hosts. All content media is indexed, navigable, browseable and organized according to a company’s taxonomy.

Ah ha! There’s the key to the success of this endeavor – a good taxonomy structure.
