New app separates learning and admin
Foundry is the new app from mylearningworx, the UK’s first crowd sourced hub for online learning. It enables organisations and learning providers to handle learning administration separately from the built-in tools that offer and produce elearning.
Foundry is a separate application which links into mylearningworx. This lets workplace learners concentrate on their learning requirements, without unnecessary exposure to administration functions they do not need. The main mylearningworx hub remains dedicated to helping learners find thousands of different types of content including videos, elearning courses, PDFs, presentations and assessments. Meanwhile, Foundry provides a deliberately simple way for organisations to share learning across a workforce.
‘The idea behind Foundry is to give both organisations and learning authors easier ways of managing the use of their online learning programmes’ explains mylearningworx managing director, Martin Belton. ‘Learners are often faced with complex layers and finger-numbing amounts of clicks just to actually reach any learning content in some of today’s platforms. Having one system that tries to do everything means that nothing is done well and the user experience is compromised for learners and administrators alike. Learning authors and publishers often get an even poorer deal from the LMS.’
He continues, ‘Separating the learning experience and the administration is really just a logical step. It means organisations can provide access to thousands of courses, create their own content using our authoring tool, combine them to make powerful learning paths, and schedule them across groups of learners, individuals or departments. And now this is all managed in a separate application. By doing this, we’re ensuring the learner’s experience centres on satisfying their learning requirements, not jumping through hoops to suit their organisation’
Built as a result of input from the mylearningworx community, Foundry is designed for organisations of all sizes and all budgets, no matter how small. Its pricing works on the basis of predicted usage, keeping costs low, particularly for smaller organisations. The app can also be personalised to suit an organisation’
