Our EasyCampus clients are doing remarkable things with online training and education.

Take Doggone Crazy!, a Canadian company dedicated to dog-bite prevention and training. The school's Basic Dog Body Language class describes many dog body language signs that help us understand what dogs might be feeling.

"By learning to speak dog, we can take steps to reduce anxiety that we may be inadvertently causing our pets,” says Toronto-based course creator Joan Orr, a scientist and internationally recognized expert in clicker training.

It's pretty interesting stuff for a self-paced training course--and only $30. Read more about this innovative online training program.

You don't have to bark like a dog to develop a great online school. Do you have an online course you want to develop? We want to hear about it. More than likely, our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder platform will help you bring your curriculum or training materials to life in a safe and secure setting. 

EasyCampus is free for up to 25 users, and more customizable paid packages start at just $39/month for up to 500 registered users.

Managing Your Course Certificates

Online learners like certificates.

More than a grade, certificates provide a visual and downloadable confirmation of success after completing a virtual class. For administrators and course creators, they can be linked to quizzes and other assessments, offering another way to track compliance.

We're happy to announce a new tool for EasyCampus owners. It's an Add-On called the Certificate Viewer and provides administrators and students with convenient on-screen access to all certificate data across an entire EasyCampus.

 EasyCampus Certificate Viewer

When installed, the Certificate Viewer is placed on your landing page and can be inserted as an HTML block anywhere on your EasyCampus. Learners view only their own certificates. Administrators can also restrict user access altogether.

You can purchase this useful Add-On for $495 by visiting Educadium's online store. Every EasyCampus Add-On comes with installation, training materials, and a 90-day limited warranty. So take a look at the Certificate Viewer and the many other EasyCampus Add-Ons that can super-charge your learning management system.

At Educadium, we're always trying to make our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder platform more powerful and convenient.

Recently, we added a handy Learner Progress Bar tool to our EasyCampus Add-Ons store. When installed on your EasyCampus, the colorful Progress Bar is a visual way for your learners to monitor their success within an EasyCampus course. Course creators can let students track:

  • Assignment submissions
  • Forum postings
  • Quiz attempts
  • Choice answers
  • Feedback survey responses
  • Various pages viewed

 Learer Progress Bar Menu

Your students will benefit from an intuitive activity-checkmark system within your courses. Due dates for activities are also displayed.

The Learner Progress Bar costs $495 to install, and you can make it visible on all of your courses. As with every EasyCampus Add-On, it includes a training session and our full support, including a 90-day limited warranty. It's worth checking out!

People learn differently. 

That's especially true when it comes to software and learning management platforms. Some users want step-by-step written guides, while others seek out video tutorials.

We get it. The EasyCampus Support team has put together a range of materials to help you build the best online school and training platform in the world. Plus, there's always free online LMS help when you need it.

Now, we're excited to take online instruction to the next level. We call it EasyCampus Learn, and it's coming in November. EC Learn is a stand-alone training site to help you build out a world-class learning program using EasyCampus and other innovative tools.

EasyCampus Learn

What can you expect?

  • Free and advanced courses for trainers and admins
  • Learning management administration tips
  • Online course design and instruction
  • EasyCampus tutorials
  • A user community forum
  • Other self-help and support

Several new online courses will make it easier than ever to roll out training programs and virtual schools using EasyCampus. "Create a Self-Paced Course," for instance, will help you: plan your courses easily and effectively; design the structure of your self-paced course; add content such as media and other external elements; and test the course to be sure it works before you allow students to enter.

Educadium expects to offer a variety of free and paid courseware, along with a range of other support materials. We think it will be a great addition to our fast-growing EasyCampus community, which now spans the globe. Stay tuned!

Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:30

Recently, Educadium carried out a large update to our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder platform. Benefits include more affordable, templated features and new pricing packages, available to prospective and existing EasyCampus users. 

At the same time, we made a number of small but significant changes to improve performance and to squash a few bugs. It's all part of Educadium's ongoing commitment to build and maintain the best and most affordable learning management system.

 Why Choose EasyCampus?

Updates and Upgrades:

  • Improved the Subscription Upgrade page for existing campuses to allow campus owners to
    select new pricing packages. A link is available to admins within every EasyCampus
  • Improved course backup/restore capabilities so that HTML blocks can now be restored correctly
  • Installed a new logo refresh capability to alleviate browser cache issues associated with the logo upload tool

EasyCampus Bug Fixes:

  • Notification functionality fixed to prevent faulty error messages
  • Gradebook error fixed so that course quizzes in selected courses report more accurately
  • Error messages fixed so that they don't contain faulty links
  • Miscellaneous language fixes for grammatical errors or misleading information
  • Miscellaneous theme updates to fix small CSS errors

On the horizon, expect to see a major update to the text-based help files visible across the EasyCampus system. It was a major support project, but this will improve the on-screen help available to campus administrators and users. These new help files will be pushed out to all existing EasyCampus installations in the coming weeks.

Of course, we continue to enhance our publicly available Support pages. If you haven't visited this area, filled with step guides and videos, we encourage you to do so, especially in advance of building your first courses.

Thanks to all of our users for their feedback. It's helping us improve EasyCampus for educators and trainers around the world.
