Rich-media for Real-time Training
Theyve come a long way, but the tools for delivering web-based
distance learning and training still havent given corporate
trainers the level of convenience and control that theyd like.
We have a solution. Pitchsmart Classroom incorporates the entire
family of Pitchsmart technologies into a premier platform for web-based
learning. Use Pitchsmart Presenter for
instructor-led distance learning. Use Pitchsmart
Theater for web-based self-instruction. Combine them both for
highly focused online seminars. Include custom-developed Flash and
Shockwave content to create a highly interactive, secure learning
Were also developing an expanding suite of assessment tools,
including testing and monitoring, to make sure that learning just
doesnt happen, its measured.
And, unlike other web-only training systems, Pitchsmart Classroom
can deliver all of this over your Intranet or on CD-ROM as well.
No Need to Reinvent the Wheel
If youre already using the Internet to deliver web-based training,
we can migrate your existing materials to PitchSmart Classroom.
Plus, you gain all the inherent advantages of a rich-media format.
Or, perhaps youre using computer-based training programs and
are looking at ways to support your students through mentoring sessions
or instructor-lead components. Its a powerful combination
that offers a well-rounded educational and training program.
Engage Your Students in Dialog
One of the true advantages of using PitchSmart Classroom is that
you can turn any training session into a dialog. Because you have
complete control over the media, you can engage your students more
freely. You control the pace and the flow of the program all at
the click of a mouse.

PitchSmart Classroom allows you to reach students anywhere in the
world. All you and your students need are an Internet connection,
a computer and a phone. And with PitchSmart, you can reach a class
of 1,000 with the same ease that you reach one student.
The Web-based Classroom Around the Clock
Beyond instructor lead delivery, you can also extend classroom time
to 24-hour access with PitchSmart Classroom. Students have access
to training on their schedule, 24 x 7, available on the web 24 hours
a day as a stand-alone, self-running application. And, your Classroom
program can include all the dynamic elements of a rich media presentationčanimation,

other self-playing programs that require hefty downloads, PitchSmart
Classroom programs are tuned for web delivery so theyre speedy
