More fun with eLearning

The global trend towards networked learning and knowledge exchange is creating a dynamic in the cycles of education, innovation and business. Among other things, this is giving rise to international technology and content standards for education and training. We not only actively drive these developments, but also offer the necessary solutions to leverage the potential of these trends.

Learning Management Systems (LMS)

Learning Management Systems (LMS) are used to manage and organize the learning process. All the necessary features are integrated into one platform. This makes it possible for you to concentrate on the essentials in the learning process: efficient and simple preparation and assignment of motivating, digital training units with real-time chronicling of participant learning progress. Students are individually supported, challenged, and encouraged. This helps ensure sustainable learning success as a result.

Our learning management systems fulfill the requirements of digital learning. They enable a seamless connection between the digital management of learning materials and real classroom interaction. While students work through the learning modules, instructors/trainers organize, plan learning structures, communicate, expand their learning materials, and track individual learning progress.

Classroom Manager Vocational Training

The Classroom Manager Vocational Training is the ideal platform for management and implementation of online training courses and also includes extensive vocational training management.

You can provide digital learning media, such as eLearning courses, Tec2Screen ® courses, simulations, as well as user-created documents and materials in a central library. Teachers and trainers also have the option to create their own tests or questionnaires. All learning media can be used by trainers to create their own curricula. Contents can be managed and assigned individually, and the learning progress of each student is evaluated and documented as well.
