Crossfit Regionals 2016

To keep us at the forefront of innovation, we continually embrace progressive practices throughout our lives. Our office environment/culture is certainly not immune either. To combat the issues surrounding 'sitting is the new smoking' the entire office has switched to standing desks months ago.

Combined with the occasional lunchtime workout, and the 30 minute pushup timer (which comes around all too quickly!) all of the staff here at Ammonite also do Crossfit.

Ammonite would like to especially congratulate Tim Harris on his recent achievement in making the Crossfit Regionals for 2016 in the Asia / Pacific region. Tim placed 7th in Australia in the Crossfit Open which is an awesome effort. Well done!

Rewards for the Development Team

The old proverb, “Self-praise is no recommendation” is very true. So while we at Ammonite are passionate about the innovations that are being continuously implemented into the Ammonite TOMS learning platform and the automation of almost everything that can be automated, it is great to see our platform come through the rigors of audits from multiple organisations without any non-compliances and as yet, not even a suggested improvement.

Video Response Technology

Ammonite's Video Response Technology allows course designers to include questions that require the student to respond by recording a video through their webcam.

It is a powerful assessment instrument particularly suited to situations where verbal communication is required. Having audio and video of the student definitely answers any authenticity concerns. It can be recalled at any stage in the future to provide evidence at audit, beyond what most classroom or face to face training can offer.

And of course the communication is two way! A trainer can send their own video feedback back to the student. The flexibility and convienence of online training is maintained without losing the personal touch of one-on-one mentoring.

Watch the following quick video on our Video Response Technology:

Identification

If your RTO is required to sight or record a copy of a students photo ID, you will be pleased to know that an identification capturing process is natively built into the Ammonite TOMS.

Aside from just recording students photo identification (such as a drivers licence), the process can be used to capture a profile photo of the student or their signature. These can all be printed directly onto a certificate or card through the platform.

Watch this short clip to get an insight into the process:

How To Prevent Certificate Fraud: Part 2

This video show you how a univerisal solution can be implemented by encrypting QR Codes and therefore restricting their use to an official smartphone app.

This would make it possible for anyone to verify a certificate within seconds, saving time and money. The solution is incredibly cheap to implement, and would work equally well on all certificates, whether they are printed on paper or exist digitally such as PDF's.
