Improvements for 2017

Accueil » Blog » Product updates » Improvements for 2017

To keep you updated with the latest product developments, we have produced a video on improvements made to the Teach on Mars platform in 2017.

Microlearning mode and Shake’n’Learn to meet the new needs of learners, the Wall to keep them engaged, xAPI compatibility for seamless integration with your LMS or HRIS, and specific functionality enabling you to translate your learning programs more quickly – these are just some of the features introduced here by Marielle Baudet, Academy Manager at Teach on Mars.

1. Microlearning

To enable trainers to adapt their approach to new learning practices, we have introduced functionality which makes it possible to create content and then release it in bite-size chunks. This allows learners to better appropriate new knowledge through short and appropriately spaced training moments. If the trainer allows it, learners can change the default pace and frequency of learning, up to a maximum threshold of one activity per day.

2. Wall

The Wall was one of our key innovations for 2017. Designed to facilitate communication between training managers and learners, and to promote the creation of an “everyday learning reflex” in your learner populations, this newsfeed centralises within the app all messages relevant to the learner: images, videos, articles, training content, invitations to quiz game duels and much, much more. Learners can interact “social media style” with publications using the “Like” and “Share” buttons, and social behavior statistics can be accessed to identify and reproduce the most popular posts.

3. Shake’n’Learn

Shake’n’Learn is a feature on the mobile app allowing learners to quickly launch a learning activity simply by shaking their smartphone. The app cleverly suggests revision activities that will help learners progress.

4. xAPI

Thanks to xAPI compatibility, you can now automatically transfer statistical data from the Mission Center to another LMS or your own HRIS for more effective management of your dashboards. It may be easier to contact our technical teams to help you with the integration process.

5. “Solo” Quiz Game

Because you’ve told us the Quiz Game is your favorite activity, we’ve produced a “solo” version where learners can see how they do against themselves instead of challenging each other

What’s next?

2018 got off to a flying start with the release of version 18.1 (known as “Ganymede”) which should go online in just a few weeks from now. It features new learning activities, updated graphics (as well as some reworked functions), new learning statistics, options to customize pages and incorporate external learning content, and much more besides.

Teach on Mars is always happy to hear your ideas on potential innovations and ways of improving its Mobile Learning solutions so we can continue to offer you the very best in digital and connected learning. We welcome your feedback!
