New features and updates for December 2020

New features and updates for December 2020

I bet you’ve been waiting for this year to end, haven’t you? Us too! And to mark the occasion, Teach on Mars is proposing 3 new features to decorate your training app and start off the new year in style! Interactivity, mobile responsiveness and a new interface design.

 

A new, mobile responsive Web App

The Teach on Mars Web App is getting a make-over — with a new design, identical to that of mobile native applications, it offers an unparalleled experience on computers and smartphones alike. The enhancements provide “responsivity” making the Web App a perfect fit for smartphone and tablet screens.

web app responsive teach on mars The Teach on Mars Web App: find all your content in your favorite browser on all screens 

 

On the web, you’ll find all the mobile application content: the Wall, catalog, searches, ongoing training courses, learner profile, etc. Only the Quiz Game and in particular the famous “Duel” mode, which enables learners to challenge one another, remains exclusively available on iOS and Android native mobile applications.

 

Videos on your Wall for greater interactivity

Itching to see more animation in publication comments on the Wall? You’re not the only one! You’ll be pleased to know that learners can now post videos in the comments on the Wall, directly from their smartphone, like on leading mobile social applications.

commentaires video communications wall app teach on mars

 

Videos are an attractive and engaging way to learn. They facilitate the transfer of knowledge, captivate audiences and may be used in various different forms.

Do you want to engage learners in a fun way? Why not try organizing competitions with videos to challenge and test their creativity? Here are a few examples:

  • Share your best tutorial with product X
  • Post your favorite look with accessory Y
  • Take me on a virtual tour of your store

Videos are also a way to interact with learners and start a conversation within your organization. For example:

  • Ask new employees to post an introduction video of themselves
  • Urge your experts to present their jobs or share their good practices
  • Encourage your teams to provide feedback about projects

Videos allow learners to express themselves, draw inspiration, share recommendations, experience and good practices in their own way and foster group dynamics and social learning.

 

Brand-new introduction and conclusion cards

We regularly improve the interface of our applications to offer the very best experience to learners. Beneath the Christmas tree, you’ll find something new in the introduction and conclusion cards.

From now on, for each module you’ll be able to add the image of your choice on the activity introduction card. If there is no image, you’ll see the standard white background, which has been modernized, in coherence with the new conclusion cards.

cartes introduction et conclusion app teach on mars Introduction cards change (Before→ After)

 

And what about the conclusion cards… At the end of your activities, on the last card you’ll discover a whole new style with icons and new buttons.

✅  : the activity is complete (for activities without a score)
👏🏻  : the activity is validated (for a successful scored activity)
🌧️  : the activity is not validated (for an unsuccessful scored activity), learners can try again by pressing a button

cartes conclusion app mobile learning teach on mars Conclusion cards change (Before→ After)

 

If the learners have succeeded, they will be congratulated and can pass on to the next activity. If they have failed, the conclusion card encourages them to persevere and proposes starting the activity from scratch to access the next step in the course.

Apart from making it easier to understand if an activity is successful or not, the new conclusion cards offer more fluid navigation, so that learners can pass directly from one activity to another within the same module, without returning to the training screen. It is only at the end of the module that learners are invited to come back, take stock and have an overall vision of the course structure and the activities in the next module.

We hope that these new features will boost your desire to learn and to train – and your learners too! The whole Teach on Mars team wishes you an excellent festive period and we hope to see you in 2021 for more new features: a new educational multiple choice game, planned communications, a new training search engine and more besides.

Teach on Mars brings its customers to the heart of the development of its solution

At Teach on Mars, we constantly strive to improve our solution to better meet our customers’ needs. For this to happen, we involve them in the earliest stages of development, as we consider and design the features.

Listening to our customers’ expectations

Since its creation in 2013, Teach on Mars has been developing its products and its new features in consultation with its customers. This has resulted in learning content recommendation, the Wall and its like, share and comment options, the integration of third-party content, the gift store and many other features besides.

Last month, we asked a panel of customers to give us their opinion about the interface of our latest Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQ) educational game. More recently, other explorer customers have been looking at interface enhancements planned for early 2021. Stay tuned!

Morocco: mobile learning arrives in the bank

Morocco: mobile learning arrives in the bank

Crédit du Maroc, a subsidiary of the French group Crédit Agricole, is launching MyCampus, the first mobile learning application in the banking sector in Morocco, developed in partnership with Teach on Mars.

Development, transparency and fairness

In early October, Crédit du Maroc unveiled the MyCampus application, which will provide training for the Group’s employees. Its objective is to allow them to learn more about their roles, to reinforce their knowledge and develop their skills, in order to benefit customers.

Premised on the belief that human capital is its most valuable resource and its driving force, Crédit du Maroc continually strives to enable employees to fulfil their potential and has been building its integrated HR system for the last few years, based on three basic principles: developing transparency and fairness, promoting the culture of effectiveness and establishing performance at the bank”, explains Crédit du Maroc. This human project will go hand in hand with employees’ skill improvement and development, both personal and professional, making staff a priority for the Group. This is in line with the three main lines of action of the Group’s 2022 medium-term strategy, both on a client project and societal level.

 An innovative learning experience

Crédit du Maroc is now innovating and positioning itself as a pioneer by launching – thanks to its in-house university (Université Crédit Du Maroc – UCDM) – MyCampus, a next generation training application.

Available on mobile, tablet and computer, in online and offline mode, the solution offers an attractive and user-friendly learning experience for employees thanks to ergonomic and fun environments. The launch of this application confirms the digital strategy of the Group’s training department. Through this application, the Credit du Maroc University, wants to encourage and offer attractive devices to employees with the aim of developing and anchoring their learning. At the same time, it allows employees to measure their progress, take up challenges and challenge their colleagues.
