Velocedge developed the Communication And Distance Education (CADE)
system to deliver interactive distance training and corporate communication
programs. CADE facilitates audio, video, and data interaction between
Instructor/Presenters and remote students using any multi-media PC connected
to the internet. CADE was designed to function with satellite delivery,
teleconferencing, or streaming video to deliver the instructor/presenter's
picture and sound to remote locations.
Classroom or Desktop with One System
CADE may be targeted at the interactive classroom environment, easily used as a desktop training
application, or a mixture of both. The interactive broadcast
audience can be comprised of both classroom and desktop participants.
The CADE Learning Management Web manages the information contained in the
CADE database and provides access to that data to authorized personnel through
the internet using a standard web browser.
The CADE Learning Management Web pages are personalized based on the user's
role in the system, beginning with the main page that welcomes the
participant, and customizes the display wherever appropriate. The
following types of users are recognized by the system and depending who they are,
the site will display only those functions appropriate for them.

Velocedge has trained hundreds of instructional designers and presenters to design,
develop, and deliver the highest quality interactive courses possible. Initial training is
performed in highly interactive workshops. Additional information on
our workshops can
be provided by clicking the title line.
Velocedge designs and implements advanced web site support systems for its partners
training networks. These web enabled applications allow remote users to manage
information about their site, their employees, generate reports or schedules on demand, and
take web based training courses to supplement live, satellite delivery.
Velocedge has unequaled experience broadcasting IDL courses over a wide variety of analog and
digital satellites, different encoders, fiber feeds, videoconferencing systems, and land
lines. Velocedge uses this experience to evaluate, select, and implement
the most appropriate system for its partners.
In addition to its own system, Velocedge has worked with
extensively with Arel, OneTouch, and other providers to create
interactivity between student and instructor. Velocedge works
with it partners to help define and implement the system that best
fits their needs.
Velocedge provides technical support of the remote response systems. It manages
networks of remote computer networks, connected by LAN, WAN, or dial-up to the host
Velocedge provides front-line support for the users of the interactive
distance learning systems it has helped to
implement. It is prepared to stand by its partner's selections and support the

The CADE system is based on an open architecture, standard
Windows personal computer platform, taking full advantage of the incalculable
investment the world is making in PC hardware, software, and internet
tools. As PC technology improves, so does the system's capability.
With the CADE software, you don't have to dedicate a computer to training alone.
The satellite industry is not accustomed to supporting remotely
located, stand-alone, personal computers. PCs require additional attention to keep their
software up to date and instruction on how to benefit from their additional advantages and
applications. Most business television suppliers are ill
equipped to support a distributed computing system connected via a Local Area, Wide Area Networks,
or particularly a dial-up network.
Velocedge has an unique advantage over these providers who are now playing
catch-up in the world of distributed computing networks and internet connected
training systems. It has an extensive background in not only interactive satellite
systems, but extraordinary experience with the
deployment and management of computer and communication systems. It is
unparalleled in its ability to combine interactive distance learning computer
networks with business television to reduce cost, reduce delivery time, and
increase learning effectiveness.
unique and agile as the corporate plane... (but, of course, considerably
faster!...) Velocedge prides itself with its unique position in the highly
computerized Interactive Distance Learning marketplace. Velocedge thrives in the Internet age of software development. Its
unique approach to software development has not only created an exciting
interactive communication system, but the tools necessary to allow it to remotely update,
manage, and control this network of internet connected personal
computers. It can upgrade software, transfer files, or reconfigure operations from a central
location, totally transparent to the site personnel. Additionally, it can
take over the remote user's display, mouse, and keyboard to determine problems
or to show inexperienced operators how to use the system.

- Much Easier to Install and Maintain
- Easily Modified to Meet Individual Requirements
- Superb Support
- Is a Fraction of the Cost
- Fantastic Company to Work With (ask any client!)
