New release delivers personalized learning and competency-based education tools
Boston, MA – June 2, 2016 – – Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, strategies, and services for higher education, today announced an upgrade to its Learning Management System with Jenzabar eLearning 2.0. The new version includes the tools educators need to deliver the personalized learning experience that modern students demand, and to meet the needs of competency-based education (CBE).
Jenzabar eLearning 2.0 supports the selective release of coursework and content. Instructors are given flexibility when posting and designating the audience for assignments. Faculty can set rules and choose when and if the assignment will be seen by individual students. Jenzabar eLearning gives students access to units as they progress through the material, seeing handouts and bookmarks according to a schedule.
“The new release supports the ‘testing-out’ concept of CBE, we are laying the groundwork for our client institutions to put CBE concepts to work for their students,” said Chris Uthe, Academic Solutions Product Manager at Jenzabar. “Progress-based and self-paced learning options now available with Jenzabar eLearning are ideal for both remedial and fast-track coursework.”
Institutions can now implement course policies to offer students an opportunity to take a pre-test, score a specific grade, and jump right to the final exam. Tools within Jenzabar Online Meetings, which is powered by BigBlueButton, are now free with Jenzabar eLearning 2.0, including integrated VoIP, whiteboard, desktop sharing, multiple-webcam support, security, and everything a school needs to do synchronous real-time collaboration for distance and online learning.
