Edvantage group announces new version of its SaaS and cloud-based Learning Management System


Oslo - Edvantage group, a leading European e-learning company, announces the latest version of its SaaS and cloud-based Learning Gateway, learning management system (LMS) version 5.6. This release focuses on helping large and small organisations gain more effect from their blended learning programmes with less administrative effort. A new resource repository will enable learning assets to be centralised, reused and shared more efficiently, while a host of new functions will help organisations deploy, track and share their learning assets with greater efficiency. LMS version 5.6 promises to deliver the best learning experience with less administrative effort.

Learning Gateway’s resource repository is used to store, share, reuse and distribute a collection of content resources. Using this new feature, organisations can capture content in any format, from any source, and reuse the content for multiple audiences and learning methods without increasing the amount of content production. Learning and development teams that are struggling to keep growing amounts of learning content structured, updated and delivered to the people that need it the most will gain significant insight and control using Learning Gateway’s resource repository.

The release also includes new reporting capabilities, reporting that will help training managers and business leaders both track learner progress and encourage course completion. A wider range of filtering options enables reporting at all levels of the organisation and on all types of learning methods, including classroom sessions, tests, evaluations and online modules. This release also includes increased functionality for visual presentation of graphs and charts, making it easier to analyse data, target areas for follow-up, and ultimately achieve better results.

Examples of other key enhancements include:

* configurable views for course listings and learning paths
* extended drill-down functionality allowing a full overview and improved follow-up of learner progress
* a more visual overview of classroom enrollments
* an enhanced mail template system with the ability to self-define elements and content
* an improved password management system

Tore Eggen, Product Manager, Edvantage group states, “Edvantage group has been at the forefront, "Edvantage group has been at the forefront of developing and delivering SaaS learning technologies for 10 years. This release is part of our ongoing commitment to deliver the industry’s most adaptable, user-friendly learning platform. It will match the unique needs of almost any type or size of organisation. In this release, we have increased configuration options and extended capabilities in order to save administrators valuable time and help managers provide their people and teams with better knowledge. This version improves oversight of learning resources to reduce duplication of effort and increase organisational consistency. The result is ultimately better and more focused learning and performance.
