New artificial intelligence capabilities create greater efficiencies for LMS administrators and connect learners to more content
CALGARY, AB, March 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Absorb Software, provider of the Absorb Learning Management System (LMS), Absorb Infuse and Absorb Create, today announced the release of a new suite of artificial intelligence tools named Absorb IntelligenceTM. Featuring a combination of machine learning, natural language recognition, automation and optimization algorithms, these capabilities enrich and simplify the learner experience while also increasing the management efficiencies of LMS administrators.
The most notable feature in this suite is the new Absorb Intelligent Assist. Administrators can now use natural language to get reports and perform tasks based on simple or complex written requests. For example, an administrator can type "Enroll the Sales Department in the new Sales Training Program" and Intelligent Assist will perform this in a one-click action. Administrators can also gather information by typing "Show me all the users that did not pass Security Compliance training," and the report will take them to a pre-populated list of those users. This game-changing capability makes LMS administration faster, easier and more efficient for power users and novices alike.
Also included in the Absorb IntelligenceTM suite are:
Intelligent Recommendations: Learners can now see additional courses of interest based on a particular completed course, overall course completions and popular courses among various learners, encouraging skills development and surfacing new material they may not have found otherwise.
Intelligent Ranking: Exclusive to Absorb LMS, Intelligent Ranking delivers enhanced search results in an optimal order based on historical learner choices. Results continuously adjust based on data collected from all learners' behavior.
Absorb Pinpoint: Video lessons are automatically transcribed and timestamped based on AI and natural language processing. Combined with Intelligent Ranking, this allows learners searching for specific topics to be taken right to a particular point in a video covering that topic.
Powered by AI, Absorb IntelligenceTM continues to get smarter with every new piece of content, search query and course enrollment. It picks up on trends and user behaviors to ensure the most relevant options and results are presented.
This focus on creating a more AI-driven system is just one way Absorb LMS is demonstrating its dedication to continuous innovation.
"It's no surprise the future of software will largely feature AI, and we want to be on the forefront of this shift in the LMS market," said Mike Owens, CEO of Absorb Software. "With that in mind, I'm particularly excited about the revolutionary Intelligent Assist capability which will change how LMS administrators work—making them more efficient, faster and able to connect deeply and naturally with Absorb LMS by skipping the need for manual menus and screens typical of LMS administration."
