Velpic today announces that version 3.2 of its leading and innovative learning management system (LMS) has now been released to customers.
The latest version of the LMS was developed over the past December quarter, with many of the features being added in response to requests from existing and potential new clients.
Among the new features and capabilities added is the ability for content creators to assign Continuing Professional Development (CPD) values to lessons on the platform. This capability targets users who are a member of a professional body, such as the CPA, SAFAA, APNA (Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association), AASW, (Australian Association of Social Workers), NIBA (National Insurance Brokers Association) and hundreds more, that need to maintain their accreditation.
Velpic have also incorporated the ability to import SCORM 1.2 (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) content into the platform. A number of customers have an existing library of SCORM compliant content, and through the updated feature this content can now be directly imported to the platform, allowing users to easily create engaging video content that is based on existing compliant SCORM content. Furthermore, mixed content modules are now available to create, with users able to upload different document formats and videos in
In order to make the platform more user-friendly for HR managers and management, Velpic has added a Skills Matrix function that allows HR departments to view the status of all employees’ skills and training requirements in one place.
Perhaps most importantly, is the launch of the Velpic developer site that provides information about how to integrate the Velpic platform (using its Application Programming Interface, API) into other existing software systems, such as an internal HR management tool. This will significantly streamline the process of skills management for a business and provide HR departments with a full view of all employees and their training requirements. A number of customers have already utilised this feature and incorporated the Velpic platform into their internal systems.
Finally, Velpic has also released the ability for single sign on for businesses that use cloud-based services, such as Office365 and G Suite (Google for business or Google Apps). This feature will make the Velpic platform directly accessible through the existing interfaces of their cloud-service provider and require the user to only log in once, in one location. This will dramatically enhance the ease of use for the user and creates a seamless transition between the Velpic platform and the dashboard of their current business’ platform.
Velpic Chief Executive, Russell Francis commented: “These new features and capabilities have not only enhanced the platform but are also expected to drive new customer sign ups, as a number of features were created in response to existing and potential new customer requests. I am particularly excited about the ability for the Velpic platform to be seamlessly integrated with internal HR systems, as this will deliver significant benefits to customers who will be able to manage all their HR requirements in one place.”

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
