The this week certified Docent Enterprise 4 as compliant with AGR 010 (The AICC Guideline for Web Based Computer Managed Instruction Systems - CMI). Docent Enterprise is the second web-based CMI System to be certified by the AICC.

Docent Enterprise 4 will also allow courseware vendors to provide files that can be imported into the system to set up the course structure so that it need not be set up manually. Docent Enterprise 4 is also capable of exporting courses in this format.

William A. McDonald, Chairman of the AICC Independent Test Lab Committee, said "This marks a very significant milestone for the AICC as Docent is the first major LMS (Learning Management Systems) vendor in this business to become AICC-certified for the Web. I expect that other ‘big names’ in the LMS market will now follow Docent’s lead."
