Features & Benefits

Unlimited Users - Network licenses allow an unlimited number of students to take assessments and courses during the license period. Network licenses are based on the number of concurrent or simultaneous users allowed. The number of concurrent users refers to the maximum number of learners who can be logged into VLC at the same time.

Powerful Management Functions - The VLC learning management system allows instructors to enroll learners, assign courses to them and print their progress reports from any computer on the network.

Comprehensive Records - VLC keeps comprehensive records of student activity and presents the records for multiple students on one screen.

Efficient Use of Computers - Learners can use any computer on the network to revisit a course or access their records; they don't have to return to the same computer each time.

One System Back-Up - Course records are stored on the network file server, requiring only one system backup.
