Most of you probably already know that eFrontPro’s 4.4 update release has very recently been, err, released. (And for those that are just finding out this, you can read more about the release here — and install it immediately thanks to eFrontPro’s one-click update option).
What you might have easily missed though, among all the great new functionality this nominally minor but feature-wise major eFrontPro 4.4 update brought, is a little something called H5P integration. Continue reading
Colorado, or “the Centennial State”, is known for its beautiful state parks, its fabulous mountains and ski slopes, being home to the Denver Broncos and the fictional (and, amusingly enough, the real) South Park, and for being the microbrewery capital of America.
It’s also the state hosting this year’s Association for Talent Development (ATD) conference — the event you can’t afford to miss if you are interested in the latest developments in Talent Development. Continue reading
“Roses are red, violets are blue, and boy do we have a great new eFrontPro update for you…”
Excuse my bad attempt at verse, but I’m quite excited by our new eFrontPro 4.4 update, and I think that after reading this post, you will be too. Continue reading
There’s a well known saying that “No man (or woman for that matter) is an island”. Well, your eLearning management system should not be an island either.
When it’s used in the enterprise space, a modern LMS should be able to connect to all kinds of internal (intranet) and third party (Cloud) services, programs and tools.
One of the recent innovations in the training industry has come through the use of social technologies to support informal learning: organizations have experimented with Twitter, in particular, to increase employee awareness of when and where eLearning content is available for them. Others have tried to bring social networks to their organizations to connect learners to experts and content.
However, in most of these projects, the Learning Management System (LMS) where much of the content is located, has remained outside of the social environment, and learners have had to navigate their way to it, leaving behind their social feeds and connections. The two areas exist in isolation and so much benefit is lost as a result.
2015 was a good year for us, and we wish you have shared the same level of success. During the last year we experienced exponential growth with TalentLMS
, we re-positioned our enterprise offering eFront
and we released a new mobile app
. Along the way we also got some important awards
. Our restrengthened goal for 2016 is to excel on what brings value to you; to build usable
learning tools that help you be a bit more productive
and a lot more successful
We started as a technology driven company and we still carry a very strong technical DNA. We consider technology as the gatekeeper for greatness. And we spend most of our work time iterating over ideas that produce tools that people actively use, as the balance between usability, simplicity and fit-to-purpose is a moving target.
Gamification is not all fun and games.
Or rather it is, but it’s also a serious business feature that can increase engagement, learner retention and course completion rates, translating to happy users and a nice, big, return of investment.
In this post we’ll have a look at the all new Gamification engine landing in the latest eFrontPro, and how you can use it to make your eLearning courses more fun and instill a sense of competitiveness and community to your learners.
We’ve built eFrontPro from scratch with a revamped architecture and the latest web technologies to showcase our vision for how a modern eLearning platform should be.
Now, after eFrontPro has proved itself in the market as a worthy successor to our first generation eFront LMS, and with the latter finally getting the EOL treatment, we’re stepping up our game with new releases delivering even more performance and polish and exciting new functionality.
It is with a certain sadness that we announce that we shall stop further development for the 3.6 branch of eFront by the end of 2015; this affects the open-source edition of eFront as well.
Our team will focus on eFrontPro, our reshaped vision for the next-generation LMS. We will keep supporting customers of Educational and Enterprise eFront editions up to the end of 2016. We shall also offer ample opportunities to upgrade to eFrontPro during this period.
References, downloads and support material for the open-source edition will be transferred to a new web-site during the next couple of weeks.
“We believe that learning can become better through technology, and we work hard to prove it. Our main product, eFrontPro, is a new type of learning tool that emphasizes the user experience without compromising functionality.” – eFront
