GeekGuru, Inc. is a new company that was established in 2012 specializing in mobile applications and consulting services. GeekGuru, Inc. provides remote services for trouble shooting and training clients to effectively use Windows and Apple products. The company is competing with other founded and newly founded IT consulting institutions in Atlanta, Georgia. This company was founded by brother and after doing a brief internship there, I realized my passion for Information Technology. I choose to do my final project on this company and focus on their Learning Management Systems.
GeekGuru, Inc. was created to exceed business expectations by introducing information technology. The Learning Management Systems is one division of services provided by the company where employees are outsourced to train clients and their employees to use software developing tools and business analytical tools successfully. To do this project, I will seek resources onsite and also research the software they use to launch their Learning Management Systems. To find written resources, I will make a list of the most used software used then research on those separately to create my research report.
In final consideration, this final project will identify GeekGuru, Inc as an information technology consulting service using remote and onsite consultation to better productivity and develop cost effective software inclusive of training clients. By having the headquarters readily available, I will interview IT managers and developers to establish necessary software products.

technology used to plan and implement a certain learning process. The over all purpose of a learning management system is to allow the instructor to present content to their business employees and also track their progress by assessing their performance.

GeekGuru, Inc. abides by a standard called Shareable Content Object Reference Model or SCORM to initiate the standardization of their learning management system.
SCORM is a guided set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM directs programmers how to write their code so that it can be compatible with other e-learning software. SCORM is the most effective industry standard for e-learning interoperability. SCORM ultimately dictates how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) interact with each other successfully.
