E front enterprise and educational software

  1. 1. Software Functionality
  2. 2. eFront Toolset The eFront Learning Management System (LMS) provides users with an excellent set of tools; these tools are explained on the following slides. The tools enable students to:  View courses from a course catalog and access courses 24/7  View information about the organization  Create, send, and view messages from instructors and fellow students  Participate in group chats and forums to discuss class courses and projects  View a calendar that provides information about class courses and projects  View reports about course completion; lesson scores; lesson information; and general information, such as forum and personal messages, system logins, and session duration These tools all work together to provide a supportive learning atmosphere for students studying online, and provide an excellent supplemental learning environment for the traditional classroom.
  3. 3. eFront Integration eFront provides excellent options for integration with external products that enable students to be involved in the following:  Social and collaborative learning  Blended learning  Gamification  Micro-learning (chunking of learning material)  Video learning  Rapid eLearning (quickly building eLearning courses)  Personalization and eLearning  Continuous learning A free eBook about concepts, trends, and applications that covers the previously mentioned topics is available to all users and explores additional topics, such as customer service, sales training, safety training, customer training, IT training, healthcare training, and product training.

  4. 4. eFront Functionality Based on my research of the eFront LMS and its functionality, I view this software as a comprehensive tool that students can use to efficiently access courses, stay in contact with instructors and students, and view course-related material, such as progress reports. With the availability of 24/7 course access, messaging, forums, and calendars, this LMS will enable students to effectively learn new concepts in an online-only environment. It also will enable instructors to supplement the traditional classroom learning experience with effective organization tools that allow for the integration of traditional classroom, as well as hybrid learning principles.
  5. 5. eFront SCORM Compliancy According to the eFront website, eFront Educational and eFront Enterprise now support SCORM 2004 / 4th edition. SCORM 2004 4th edition is the latest and most technologically advanced collection of standards and specifications for web-based eLearning. Being SCORM compliant helps ensure that the eFront LMS software will run efficiently and will provide users with excellent interoperability with any necessary related computer systems and software. The software enables users to complete course activities and learning objectives in a logical manner, and the ability to share information with instructors and students for a more complete learning experience.
