BMI is a pioneer in distance training, with nearly 15 years of experience in what started out as “computerized learning.” With that foundation, BMI’s programs today are both well-known and highly regarded in the eLearning sphere. Regardless of changing platforms and evolving technology, BMI strives to embrace the best of contemporary platforms, networks, and user devices while also seeking first adapter status for the “next big thing.” As a company exclusively focused on delivering education and training over the internet, we’ve witnessed both the cost and availability of bandwidth go from a scarcity to a commodity, and with that, the delivery of content go from basic text and choppy videos to richly delivered audio visual content and even live, interactive presentations with synchronous blends, real-time polling, and testing and performance based outcomes. Following are recent examples of learning management systems developed by BMI.


BNP Media's Construction's Continuing Education Center is an interactive online certification program that helps contractors, architects and specifiers more easily earn AIA Continuing Education learning units. The site was developed, built, hosted and managed by BMI and allows users to satisfy their continuing education requirements in a flexible, convenient online environment and benefits sponsors and manufacturers by allowing them to track course use and identify market trends. BMI designed and developed the technology that drives the unique learning platform, which has administered over one million AIA Continuing Education Credits since its inception in 2008. The Center was the first online learning forum to offer AIA approved learning unit courses in a "mentored learning" format. The unique approach, developed by BMI, seamlessly directs users who answer a test question incorrectly to the appropriate section of the article or course, improving understanding and providing additional coverage of the topic.
