  • Robust tracking & reporting
  • Easy grading capabilities

Track and Report on Student Success

Maximise learning initiatives and increase learner success by leveraging robust reporting within your LMS. With a powerful LMS, instructors can generate custom reports on virtually any learner information that is being tracked, allowing for real-time analysis of student progress on the individual, course-wide or even department-wide level. This empowers educators to pivot quickly when student outcomes don’t follow an expected trend, providing the supplemental teaching and assessment needed to bring them back up to speed. This also provides institution leaders with the visibility they need in order to effectively manage their teams or departments.

Enable Learning on the Go

Open LMS EDU offers a seamless, engaging experience from mobile devices including phones, tablets, laptops, and even multi-screen workstations with no adaptive effort on the part of the user. The Open LMS Mobile App makes learning more accessible, allowing students the convenience of learning on their own schedule, wherever they might be.

Utilise Blended Learning

Based on Moodle™, Open LMS EDU utilises an adaptive design, allowing instructors to create dynamic synchronous and asynchronous learning experiences. Instructors can evaluate in-seat participation, online assessments, and both formal and informal learning data in one system, serving content for online sessions while providing the space to evaluate the work done in face-to-face settings.

Scale Your Programmes With Confidence

Scalability is the heart of the Open LMS mission, with solutions that include administrative features that allow for easy grouping of instructors and course content into teaching units, instantaneous permission and access level changes, and an easy transfer of content between modules. Whether you need to support 100 or 10,000 course sections, the tools are there to help you scale as demand grows.

Take Advantage of Cost-Effective eLearning

Costs are contained because our Moodle™-based solutions allow for various hosting options and flexible customisation without the additional licensing rights you pay for with closed-source systems. When your LMS budget is directly allocated to service and maintenance instead of access to the platform itself, you receive a high-quality LMS solution that can be effectively supported by experts.
