As such, our development focus was on Feature Requests, Reporting and Multi-tenancy. We delivered over 25 new developments requested specifically by clients as part of the 50 or so items released during the year – 30 of which have shipped since July. We also completely upgraded our client Academy in 2020 – adding new content, new functionality and a more social learning experience.
In 2021, we are adding a brand new, in-built tool for rapid content creation and publishing – Rapids. Using a WYSIWYG drag-and-drop interface, our clients will be able to create media-rich articles and content with video, images, quizzes, checklists and more and publish to a professional standard. Rapids will be included at all tiers, at no extra cost.
Rapids – Inline editor and multi-column layout
In addition to this, we have a host of new functionality in development – including an MS Teams Integration, a Social Wall format, further reporting Dashlets and the option to have full BI-tool reporting capabilities in the LMS. We’ve also started a project dedicated to improved design and experience across the platform. This will be a big year for LMS developments, and we’ve increased the size of our development team by 50%. So here’s a bit more information on all that we’ve delivered plus all that is to come as part of our Software-as-a-Service approach to the Open Source LMS…
Our Theme Skins allow you to create multiple themes on the same site, and we now have Multi-Language Support for Dashlets, allowing this theme to extend to your global audience.
We continue to work tirelessly on Accessibility, including recent work with 3rd sector partners to endorse this commitment. Expect to hear more from us on this in the coming weeks.
This year, we also released a new Training Tile view for the Record of Learning.
Social engagement has always been a priority for us. We have Forums, the Chatroom and a Yammer Block already, and our new Social Wall format coming next month.
What’s coming soon?
We’re investing in the core Open Source elements of the LMS on a continuous basis. We’re continuing to prioritize the enhancements our customers tell us they need to deliver more effective, engaging and efficient learning experiences.
In the immediate term between now and the summer you can expect to see:
Open Source and the ‘ecosystem’.
Our LMS is the workhorse of learning and development for more than 500 customers across the world. Built on open-source foundations, we remain committed to the open-source philosophy; our core LMS is licensed GPL 3 from end-to-end. We are the only provider in the marketplace that has the complete ‘stack’, from Learning Experience to Content, to Data, built on Open Source. Our commitment to client flexibility here goes beyond any other.
But when you partner with Learning Pool you get much more than just an LMS. You get access to our complete ecosystem of software and content. We’ve been working hard to create seamless integrations with the LMS and our work here is starting to roll out now. This includes:
We won’t stop there!
