Psst...Something new is coming to Brainshark...
March 25, 2010
Spring is here (minus the forecast for snow tomorrow, but I digress)...  Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and we're working on some cool new features just for you!

In the coming weeks we're going to be releasing several new enhancements that you should know about:

Certificates for Presentations --  Those customers who use our Rapid Learning application are familiar with our completion certificates.  We're now introducing these on Presentations as well!  You simply set your completion criteria, and choose if you want viewers to receive a PDF certificate upon completion.  This is a great way to encourage participation in training programs, partner certifications, company knowledgeshare and much more.  Available: March 31

Custom Certificates -- We're taking the certificate theme a step further by offering support for custom certificates (is that applause I hear from the Rapid Learning crowd?).   You can supply us with templates which we will load and make available to your authors for use on presentations, courses, and curriculums.  It's as easy as supplying us a PPT slide with whatever look and feel you want.  If you're interested, contact support@brainshark.comAvailable: March 31

 My Wraps -- For those of you using our personalization feature, we've made some improvements by allowing you to designate presentations that are just to be used for wrapping other content with. This simple security setting will take this presentation out of search so that your 'wrap slides' aren't showing up on the content portal or in your 'My Presentations' view.  Available: March 31

Microphone Audio -- Looking for a new way to add your voice to a Brainshark?  Tired of recording MP3s offline and uploading them to your slides?  Well look no further.  We're introducing a great new feature that allows you to record your voice using a microphone - directly into the Brainshark application!  Simply click 'record' and start talking - it's as easy to use as our phone recording and we are excited to hear your feedback!  If you're interested in trying out microphone audio, please contact to get this feature turned on in your account.   Available: limited release March 31

We've got some other surprises coming your way soon but hope you'll take some time to learn more about these items on their way shortly.  For more details, check out my latest new release Brainshark.

Happy Spring!
