Just over a week since we released UpsideLMS 5.0, and the interest it has generated in these few days is mindboggling! For those of you who still haven’t taken a look at this stunning, best value LMS, we suggest you do it now. UpsideLMS version 5.0 is an outcome of the sweat and thoughts put in by our engineering and UI experts. Our designers have put themselves in the users’ shoes to understand the nuances of User Experience (UX). This new version promises to bring a burst of freshness to the users’ desktops along with a slew of new features. To give you a taste of the new version, here’s a quick take on the 5 top features in the new UpsideLMS.
1. Stunning New GUI
UpsideLMS v5.0 is an evident departure from the traditional LMS systems where mostly functionality is all that’s cared for and practically no attention is given to the User Experience (UX). With UpsideLMS’ new version, users can expect an intuitive and user-friendly interface. It aims at providing a seamless experience for users, allowing them to access their learning resources, notes, or friends stream from any computer with an internet connection. From the background visual to the color palette, the logo placement, the font and its sizes, every small detail has been designed to give users an experience that they will cherish.
2. Easy Navigation
UpsideLMS 5.0 makes it easy for users to navigate and find the data they seek quickly and effortlessly. Well defined menus reduce the information-searching time, while the logically defined structure ensures a smooth flow. The new menu style has been adopted to enable users to navigate to the desired section quickly in least number of clicks.
A key example is the new design of the Events Calendar where the users can view the calendar and events without leaving the page.
UpsideLMS 5.0 gives you the freedom to more than just change the color of borders and text. With a set of pre-designed themes, each with a different look and feel (background graphics, colors, shapes and fonts), organizations can now select and apply a theme that reflects their company’s identity.
4. Configurable Learner Login Screen and Dashboard
The login screen is the 1st touch point for the user as s/he logs into the system. And as such the real estate (or should we say, the pixel estate) on that screen is of vital importance. UpsideLMS’ new version makes optimum utilization of this by giving the Admin the ability to display important information modules for the learner/s right on the login screen. Be it announcements, FAQs, recent blog posts, system diagnostic results, learning catalog or the discussion forum, the admin can now choose one or more of these elements to be displayed on the login area.
Customizability has also been extended to the learner’s dashboard. Depending on the widgets important/ most used by the learner, s/he can easily configure the dashboard to display only those widgets. Further, the learner can also enjoy the freedom to move widgets freely across the dashboard.
5. Centralized License Management
With the License Management moved to the Site Admin level in UpsideLMS’ 3 tier architecture (consisting of Learner, Admin and Site Admin), the process of assigning curriculums to multiple clients from the same setup has become extremely easy. This feature is of prime importance for training companies using LMS for hosting/selling eLearning courses for their customers or for large organizations managing decentralized training units.
