Securing Training Materials

New Video-Upload Function from Coursepath

Amsterdam (NL)/Cologne (GER), June 2016 - Efficient training is not only based on central access to information and tests, but also on securely saved progress and results. Personal data and training material are highly sensitive, which is why online training platform Coursepath saves data only on certified servers, where they are protected from unauthorized access. 

Users’ video files can now be integrated into the provider’s secured hosting. Previously, users were able to embed video material into online training via YouTube or Vimeo. These third- party services usually store data on servers in the USA, where they are unprotected against access via the Patriot Act.  Coursepath, in contrast, stores videos and related data on their own EU-based servers, provided by hosting company Cyso and data centers Global Switch and Equinix in Amsterdam. Cyso’s ISO 20000, ISO 27001 and NEN 7510 certifications guarantee the digital and physical protection of all customer data. 

Integrating video hosting is not a common feature among European learning-management systems due to its consumption of storage capacity and scope and because third parties such as YouTube and Vimeo offer good services for displaying video material. However, Coursepath finds it very important to offer the entire training content centralized on one platform. This is why the provider decided to expand its existing services with integrated video hosting.

The recent development adds to already popular features such as tests, statistics, surveys, and picture and audio upload. Also, users are no longer dependent on any third parties, but can integrate all information and media entirely on one platform. This centralized management of all training-related content saves companies time and money and enables efficient training setup for everyone involved. Michell Instruments and other companies use the Coursepath platform for this reason and train their employees and partners in a secure and flexible way.
