Learn.net's suite of CADE technologies is made up of three primary products: MAPLE, LMW, and eTutor.
MAPLE is a traditional, enterprise-class learning management system (LMS). Its proven platform currently manages anywhere from 300 to 300,000 learners for a wide variety of clients since MAPLE was first introduced by Learn.net in 1994. MAPLE is a robust, configurable LMS that can integrate with a corporation's legacy HR systems. MAPLE's rules-based architecture prevents expensive custom coding and makes it easier to set up and adapt to the business rules of an organization.
Among the many features of MAPLE, the following are its areas of particular strength:
- Learning Objects (course creation). Courses are created in MAPLE by combining and sequencing learning objects, which offers MAPLE authors many flexibilities and reduces the time to create engaging and effective courses.
- Administration. MAPLE can easily be (re)-configured to accommodate most organizational hierarchies and training requirements, allowing System Administrators superior flexibility in setting up their interfaces, and defining functionalities.
- Test Authoring. MAPLE's test engine has considerable built-in flexibility to generate tests, quizzes and surveys, with 7 different question types, question pools, timers etc.
- eCommerce. MAPLE's Payments modules allows System Administrators to set fees for individual courses, for bundles, debit plans, coupons or discounts based on memberships.
Learning Management Web (LMW)
The Learning Management Web (LMW) is the powerful engine behind Learn.net's CADE technologies. With the LMW, users can:
- Manage, store and retrieve training materials (“content”) of almost any type, including videos. Create links between these materials and a course, thus making them easy to find.
- Provide personalized, self-service training portals to employees or external clients.
- Make available online, on-demand training courses from different sources: (a) developed internally using a variety of authoring tools, (b) purchased off-the-shelf from a third party provider or (c) recorded from live, interactive eTutor sessions.
- Modularize courses into more manageable lessons.
- Develop training tracks or paths based on roles or characteristics
- “Author” instructor-led presentations using Learn.net’s Instructor Guide authoring tool.
- Schedule, launch and track live, instructor-led online training “broadcasts” to learners at their PC, in a classroom, or on a mobile device. Record those sessions for on-demand playback.
- Schedule and manage instructor led classes or workshops around the world, and allow learners to register & get waitlisted for these classes.
- Create, assign, administer, score and report on tests and surveys
- Test competencies and identify gaps and strengths.
- Conduct compliance training with automated “remedial” assignments to ensure 100% compliance across the organization.
