The article reports that Tata Interactive Systems, a supplier of custom-built electronic-learning solutions, created this intuitive interface to update cable firm NTL's three-year-old online induction programme. All of operations of NTL Inc. had to be incorporated into the new programme, which uses the firm's SumTotal learning management system. Launched to NTL's human resources and training communities in May 2004, it has since been rolled out to 13,000 employees throughout the business. A series of zones representing an aspect of the cable company's operations leads to a number of interactive screens, with an avatar-style character available for on-screen help.
