Celebrating 10 years of Claro!

2011 was quite the year for dominKnow, as we released Claro.

Claro was a huge shift from our original Learning Content Management System, released almost a decade earlier in 2002.

Claro took the core idea of an LCMS and added a great authoring experience. With Claro, learning and development teams could successfully collaborate on great elearning experiences.

And even more important was how Claro helped our clients address the growing use of mobile devices. When many authoring tools were promising “mobile support”, we were truly delivering it with Claro. Being one of the first all-HTML5 authoring tools, – dropping Flash – Claro content worked across iOS and Android devices, even on Blackberry and Palm OS, with no surprises.

Claro’s release in 2011 was a major benchmark in our almost 25 years of industry-leading innovations in eLearning.

I’ve had the good fortune of being a part of dominKnow since we first opened our doors, but these last 10 years have been transformational.

When I look back at what our team has accomplished, the amazing and diverse customers we’ve had the good fortune to work with, as well as a terrific network of partners, I can’t help but be ecstatic about not only our products and team’s accomplishments but especially about what our customers have been able to accomplish for their organizations with dominKnow. Thank you!

We've put together a short video to help us celebrate all that we've accomplished.

Starting with the launch of one of the industry’s first Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS) in 2002 to the present, dominKnow has had a history of groundbreaking innovations:

  • In 2012, we added xAPI support to Claro, adopting the standard while it was still in development and known as Tin Can API.
  • In 2014, we released the dominKnow mobile app to support offline courses and integration with third-party LMSs.
  • In 2016, we released Flow, the industry’s most robust authoring option for creating modern responsive design content.
  • In 2018, we brought Claro and Flow together in dominKnow | ONE, and added Capture, our software simulations feature making dominKnow | ONE the most powerful web-based eLearning authoring platform ever! I could be a little biased here.
  • In 2018, we also launched weekly video session called Instructional Designers In Offices Drinking Coffee. Affectionately known as IDIODC, these live sessions promote innovation and excellence in learning and development, even among non-dominKnow users. IDIODC’s live sessions, and video & audio podcasts have been viewed tens of thousands of times.
  • In 2019, we launched Convey, our dynamic content delivery option to help authors rapidly publish and update content without loading packages into their LMS.

So, what’s next? dominKnow’s commitment to leading our industry means there will be a streak of enhancements coming for our customers. Providing a progressively seamless authoring experience is our goal, and throughout this year, we’ll be releasing features that:

  • Streamline tasks for small and large teams alike
  • Offer even more options for creating engaging eLearning content
  • Eliminate unnecessary manual steps to help streamline the efficiency of our client authoring teams and their content development

We’ll also continue our focus on big data and xAPI, empowering content creators to have greater insight into the impact of their learning.

And our dynamic delivery option, Convey, will see enhancement in content management, two-way data streams, learner usage reports and availability for smaller teams.

These are just a few of the exciting things we have planned, even as we celebrate Claro’s 10th anniversary. dominKnow has a proven history of innovation, and we have, and will continue to build on that in the future.
