Bangalore, India (PRWEB) July 4, 2009
e-Learning experts, instructional designers and Learning Management System (LMS) providers have always struggled to make e-learning interesting and engaging. LMSs have evolved with concepts like collaborative/learning-from-peers and have reached another level with tools like discussion boards, forums and chats. e-learning experts call it Learning 2.0. These tools though effective, were not able to generate enough interest in the learning community.
Vineet Dwivedi, Director, Career Mantra, while formally releasing their new Learning Management System (LMS), Gyankosh LMS 2.0, (http://www.careermantra.com/learning-management-system.php) said, "I am excited about the launch of the new release of Gyankosh LMS. This LMS takes learning concepts to new heights with focus on adaptive learning."
"My excitement", he continued, "stems from the power the new adaptive engine in our release gives to our customers. As in all products of Career Mantra, ease of operations is a given and you will find yourself engrossed in a new level of experience when you dabble with Gyankosh 2.0."
Vineet went on to explain that Gyankosh LMS 1.0 already had industry standard features like collaborative learning, Web 2.0 standards, self-paced learning, rule based learning, multiple workflows and a host of other state of the art e-learning attributes. The new release has adaptive learning features which closely mimics a personal teacher by providing individual feedback, specific to an individual's respective need.
"The learning process starts with an assessment where every individual is benchmarked against a standard and an adaptive learning path is then defined by the LMS for each individual" ,said Vineet. "The trend is converging towards collaborative learning. Here, not only does one get taught in the classroom and through CBT, one also interacts with peers and colleagues through company blogs and intranets. One even leverages social networking sites to get a handle on things". He goes on to explain that Gyankosh is very amenable to collaborative learning and learning can actually be cathartic with Career Mantra's LMS.
"Gyankosh LMS 2.0 has an excellent reporting system", explained Vineet. Gyankosh LMS 2.0 is SCORM and AICC compliant and can be integrated easily with third party content. Its flexible architecture supports integration with an existing system and can be seamlessly launched into an organization's training portal for organization wide e-learning.
