UpsideLMS ’ recently released roadmap, which documents all releases in a phase wise manner, promises to take UpsideLMS a level higher while underlining its ‘It delivers more’ proposition. Some of the prominent features mapped for the upcoming releases include AVETMISS, Tin Can API Integration, and SCORM 2004 compliance.
AVETMISS, which stands for the Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard, is a national data standard that ensures consistent and accurate capturing and reporting of VET information about students. Its compliance is a key requirement for all RTOs in the Australian market for regulation purposes. UpsideLMS’ November 2013 release features AVETMISS compliance along with course URL masking, new email notification triggers etc.
UpsideLMS team has been closely watching and understanding the Tin Can API since its draft release. UpsideLMS’ February 2014 release will now come ready with the Tin Can API integrated. This will enable organisation to capture a multitude of learning experiences that their employees go through (and not necessarily just the eLearning ones), and ultimately, to link experience to performance. In addition to the Tin Can API integration, the early 2014 release will also feature the ability to create Learning Paths/Learning Plans, a complete new interface and set of functions for instructors, an intuitive and fresh new dashboard for line managers, to list a few.
The May 2014 release will include full SCORM 2004 compliance (the current version of UpsideLMS supports the basic SCORM 2004 compliance already) amongst other features like redesign of the very popular in‒built chat engine, more controls to administrators for social (user generated) content moderation and monitoring, features to enable and manage re-training (to manage time‒bound certifications and qualifications that need to be re‒trained on) through an improved competency management module.
