Create an engaging learning-centric destination for your learners
Finding ways to make your learners excited about the training process is not always an easy task. With the Absorb LMS Mercury Module we help you bring some of the best elements of the web, right into your training portal, helping make your LMS a destination and not just a necessity.
Communicate key messages to a targeted audience
In conjunction with Absorb LMS’s standard Availability Rules, the Mercury Module components allow Admins to accurately target groups of Learners with the content that matters to them. This means higher rates of course completion, more voluntary learning, and better feedback for future learning objectives.
Welcome your learners with an eye-catching billboard
Billboards provide Learners with a large message banner as the most prominent object they will see when they first log into the LMS. This makes it ideal for serving whatever promotional purpose the Admin has in mind. Billboards can use static images with the ability to link within the LMS or externally, or replace the static image with video.
- Promote enrollment in your newest course
- Entice customers to act by sharing a limited time course discount
- Alert employees of a coming company event or milestone.
Shorten feedback loops with polls
Polls give Admins the capability to sample data from a select Learner audience on any number of issues (both learning and non-learning) and obtain direct group feedback. Delivered via a simple Question and Option/Answer format, the Admin can create a basic multiple-choice research tool that they can easily administer and monitor over time.
The open-ended capabilities of Polls allow the Admin the full freedom to customize their research to serve any number of purposes, simply depending on how they design their query and responses. To foster participation and interest, all Learners are provided with Poll results immediately after they cast their ‘vote’.
- Get feedback on the quality of a course
- Learn what training course to build next
- Auto-enroll learners based on poll answers.
Enrich your learning portal with news articles
News Articles allow Admins to reach Learner audiences and provide them with information on various subjects, in a more detailed and specific way, than is possible with a Billboard. Following a very recognizable ‘journal’ format, News Articles can be written and published to a Learner’s Dashboard where the Learner can open and read whatever ‘news story’ interests them.
- Share your company’s latest press release
- Announce changes to your Learner’s experience
- Repurpose company blogs and share them in the LMS.
Bring social to your LMS with Facebook & Twitter tiles
Give your Learners a window to your social media properties to encourage engagement outside the LMS. Use your corporate accounts or create a Portal specific account to feed targeted social content into your Learners. The Facebook and Twitter Tiles allow for immediate interaction, so Learners can like, comment, heart, retweet, and reply in real-time.
Leaderboards. Engaged learners, from top to bottom.
Nothing encourages action like a little bit of friendly competition. The Absorb LMS leaderboards give your learners a chance to compete with their peers as they advance through their courses and curricula. Drive results with this simple to implement engagement carrot.
