Check how our learner dashboards and timed release of microlearning can help you learn and retain better.
We believe learning is a continuous process – you cannot learn it all and you cannot learn it at one go. Our learner dashboards are dynamic, helping learners monitor what’s new in their domains and benchmarking their progress against their peer group. Timed release of microlearning modules enables learners to learn in small chunks, but consistently.

Tony Bingham, ATD President and CEO, and Marcia Conner define learning as “The transformative process of taking in information that—when internalized and mixed with what we have experienced—changes what we know and builds on what we do. It’s based on input, process, and reflection.”
And yet, most LMS functionality is focused predominantly on the “input” or serving up the content and testing it in the short-term through assessments. Through a combination of multi-format learning objects, timed microlearning, and a recommendation engine, we support the entire learning life cycle.
Learning is accretive and organic– not modular
Microlearning works, but not because our attention spans are shrinking.
How we learn hasn’t changed in millions of years – the circumstances and context may have changed, the content may have changed, the media and methods may have changed, our levels of busyness may have changed, the amount of information available has exploded – but the fundamental processes of how information is received, encoded, memories are formed and retrieved contextually, and assimilated, has not changed. Learning is an accretive and organic process – but for more than a decade, LMS functionality has tuned us to think of learning in modular terms – like Lego blocks needing to be assembled. Think about it – there is an intuitive connect between fractals and how learning works.

Learning should be experienced – not just managed.
Learning is about engagement – how did we get to a place where we mostly only manage it?
In most LMSes, if you look at the ratio of code written to track compliance, enable administration and workflows, report consolidated data and analysis, to code written to support learners through their learning journey, you will find that it is skewed very heavily towards the former. We started out with a decision to focus more on the learner.
We enhanced the learner experience – we provide a consumer grade UX on our mobile and web apps – we take our philosophy that learning experience is not just about well-presented content; it is as much about an engaging learning platform experience.
We made learning more accessible – with a mobile first design, dynamic content categories, recommendations and ratings, we take accessibility a few notches over.
We strive to keep it fresh – with dynamic dashboards, trending and recommendations, flexible learning paths, we do everything we can to keep the learner engaged and make learning a life-long habit.
