Elearning platforms meeting PENS standard makes online training easier


Having an LMS that meets the PENS standard is a one-click process, saving course authors time. Having an LMS that meets the Package Exchange Notification System ( PENS ) standard , coupled with an authoring tool, will save course authors time and ibuprofen. Before the PENS LMS , course authors would have to upload SCORM content to an elearning platform , using a tedious multistep process. In its next update, the Docebo LMS will support the PENS standard.
