CHESTERFIELD, Mo., Dec. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The newest release of BizLibrary's industry-leading and award-winning learning management system is now available to all of BizLibrary's existing and new clients.
The BizLibrary LMS represents a major step forward in learning technology, with the introduction of an innovative and dynamic recommendation engine that helps create personalized learning environments for each end user.
The system is also fully responsive to help maximize the effectiveness, convenience and reach of the BizLibrary Collection of thousands of online training videos, so employees have unlimited access to content on any device at any time.
Other important innovations include enhanced catalog browsing and search capabilities, a new and improved in-line course player, and a wholly redesigned learner and team administration section and learning activity progress activity dashboard.
BizLibrary will showcase the new platform during a webinar on Thursday, January 21st at 1:00 p.m. CT. Register here: BizLibrary LMS Demo: Changing the Way Employees Learn.
Included in the new release are several innovations in learning technology:
Personalized User Interface
Introduces a new recommendation engine that personalizes the learning experience based on the employee's job role, learning preferences, learning activity and ratings, as well as the experiences of other, similar learners.
The new platform also includes enhanced search functionality, allowing learners to search topics and courses quickly and easily. Finally, it allows learners to further filter results by sub-topics, target audience, course duration, course ratings, and skill level.
Inline Video Course Player
Similar to YouTube and other familiar consumer sites, we've integrated our new inline video course player into the new platform, which means there are no more popup windows or technical challenges associated with popup blockers, or plug-ins in web browsers.
100% Mobile Ready Platform
The new platform is a completely responsive design so it will automatically re-size to fit any device or screen size. It looks great on desktops, laptops, tablets and phones – making the learning experience 100% mobile.
Streamlined Learner and Team Administration
In addition to dramatic improvements to the learner's experience, the platform now includes a new, streamlined learner and team administration area, making it easy to create and import learners and teams, make individual and group assignments and to view learner activity and progress.
Fresh Data Displays and Reporting Analytics
The new platform includes several new dashboards for viewing individual and team learning activity and status. These new visual reports allow managers and administrators to quickly and easily filter learning history and results to get exactly the information they need.
"We are extremely excited to introduce our newest platform version, which has been a long time coming. We are dedicated to fundamentally changing the way people learn at work, and this version of our solution delivers on that commitment," said Dean Pichee, Founder and President of BizLibrary. "Rather than just band-aid existing functionality, we made the decision to take the time and effort needed to completely re-think and rebuild our platform to truly transform the experience for both learners and administrators. We're very happy with the result and we are confident our clients will be too."
"The clients that have been using the new platform for the last several months have been amazing and helpful in their feedback," remarked Shannon Kluczny, Vice President of Client Success at BizLibrary. "For starters, their employees love it! As usual, without the support, ideas and energy our loyal clients provide, innovative steps forward like this are much harder to deliver. That's why we are so thrilled to deliver this outstanding solution to our entire client base effective immediately."
