will notify 1Know
Assessment and practice service
Light Learning Management System:
1Know pushes a helpful
video or resource link to K
This is K
video B, VisCa will
notify Hong Ding
Hong Ding pushes an
set to K
A Simple Example...
Activity/Agent Profile API
IRS, Quiz service
Integration of Workflow and Data flow *Adaptive design
Videos or MOOC platform
Real behavior data sent to
Game/ Gamification/ 3rd
platforms for rewards
Step 4 - Let VisCa Work for You and Learners
