The NetDimensions Software Development Kit is a development tool that enables users of NetDimensions Learning and their website developers to integrate NetDimensions Learning’s functionality into existing websites or portal sites.
The NetDimensions SDK achieves this seamless integration through an Application Programming Interface (API), which pulls the necessary information from NetDimensions Learning and presents it in the desired format within the website or portal.
The API collects information from your learning system, including course catalogs, news articles and training history, as well as performing actions such as enrolling users, launching courses and conducting surveys and assessments.
NetDimensions Learning, on its own, is already a very flexible and easy-to-customize system in terms of adapting the look and feel of an organization’s brand.
The SDK gives organizations more flexibility by allowing them to present NetDimensions Learning’s functionality in an environment that is more familiar to or easier to access by their target audience, such as customized websites, assembly line kiosks and other devices that can deliver information at the point of need.
The NetDimensions SDK can be used to develop customized pages or user interface screens using Java/JSP, Microsoft.Net, PHP or any other programming language and platform that supports web standards (including HTTP and XML).
NetDimensions Learning clients also have the flexibility to deploy their website or portal with NetDimensions Learning functionality on a different server or data center from that of their learning system, which can either be installed behind their firewall or hosted by NetDimensions.
The NetDimensions SDK will help you enhance your existing website or create a brand new, customized portal to target various applications, including:
- Compliance/Certification Programs
Communicate critical information about compliance or certification training to employees, partners, suppliers and other members of your extended enterprise.
- HR Policy Orientation
Disseminate the most updated HR news and policies to members of the organization -- ensure all staff members have the necessary information to adhere to the new policies.
- Pre-Hire/Recruitment Programs
Ensure that all potential candidates and new hires know about the requirements and competencies needed prior to hiring through a centralized orientation program portal.
- Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives
Update members of your organization with news of corporate actions and social responsibility -- allowing each member of the organization to understand their role.
- Third-Party Paid Training Services
Offer paid courses to third parties, taking advantage of NetDimension Learning's robust and secure eCommerce functionality.
Although all these applications may also be realized by using NetDimensions SDK*, the SDK gives a NetDimensions Learning client a lot more flexibility in terms of website design and functionality. The possibilities are endless.
*Some customization may be necessary depending on the application requirements.
