aNewSpring is specially designed for training providers and combines online authoring, LMS, LCMS, learning community and webshop functionality so you don’t need other tools or platforms. As training needs change we keep on developing aNewSpring to meet those needs. Our clients drive our innovation.
Because aNewSpring is entirely web based, your learning materials and courses are easily managed online. You can create and re-use pages, content and questions without duplication. Courses work on any PC or Apple iPad, and with our own apps for iPhone and Android we make sure learning is available anytime and anywhere.
In aNewSpring you create courses in course templates, in which you decide how your content is structured. You can use the same template for multiple courses, so you derive different courses from one template. This way you can let courses from the same template differ in the assigned instructor, the start date, the way learners are subscribed, etcetera.
aNewSpring supports SCORM and is SCORM certified. SCORM is a set of rules that make sure you can exchange learning material and that the content communicates with the content playing platform. This way you can use external content directly in your course.
A learning path in aNewSpring consists of blocks with learning activities. There are multiple learning activities available (like surveys, assignments, assessments and evaluations) which all have their own characteristics and settings.
In aNewSpring you create and manage your own content, which is seperate from creating and managing courses. Therefore the same content can be used in multiple courses and changes can be made in one place. There are lots of different content types that can be made, and a bunch of systems and applications that can be integrated in aNewSpring.
Our platform supports a growing number of different content templates, for example:
To make your courses as versatile as possible we offer you different question types like:
Adaptive learning assures that the training focuses automatically on those subjects that require training. You know that you find certain areas more difficult than others, our system focuses on those weak points. It helps learners achieve their goals, like preparing for an exam or maintaining their skills.
With adaptive blocks the aNewSpring platform decides which course parts will be offered to the learner in which order, based on target profile. The predefined course part that fits best with the target profile, will be offered to the learner. This way a personal learning path will form that adjusts the learners’ learning scheme on a daily basis to make them achieve their goals.
aNewSpring regularly tests learners to see if they still know what they should. These retention trainings are done by MemoTrainer, one of the unique ways of adaptive learning at aNewSpring. MemoTrainer provides each learner with those subjects that require extra training.
Blended Learning in aNewSpring offers support to the teacher by pro-active statistics and clever communication tools. With Blended Learning it is possible to let knowledge building happen online so you can work on skills and attitude in the classroom. The combination of teacher guidance and online adaptive guidance offers the learner an optimal learning experience.
The aNewSpring platform supports the instructor with useful communication tools. They can send messages to individual learners, or to all learners in a group. Also, learners can ask the instructor questions directly from the course, just like they would in class.
Statistics give an instructor insight into the progress and results of the learner group and the individual learners. They make it simple to analyze when learners require extra support or where adjustments in the teaching program are necessary. Instructors can automatically receive a periodical summary of the progress and results of their learner group.
Learners can interact with their fellow learners through a discussion, so when they have a question they don’t always have to ask the instructor, but they can also ask their fellow learners. That’s social learning: learning from and with each other.
With social learning instructors and learners have their own profile page and can link their LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Skype, which makes communication much more personal and easier. They can also hold video meetings to create that classroom feeling.
We can provide you with a personal and unique look & feel for your platform because aNewSpring has its own graphic design team. Did you know that your style can be seperated from your content? This way one course can be distributed in multiple look & feels.
Learners can easily access your courses in several ways, for example through an access code, the LMS of your client or through the webshop of aNewSpring. Access to a course can be adjusted per learner or per group of learners, and also a limited period of access can be set for a course.
To promote your courses aNewSpring offers the opportunity to set out demo courses and demo knowledge tests. Those interested can register and try it out! These demo tests ends in an advice so you can give the user the opportunity to order the full course directly through the catalogue.
The integration with Micros can help you with your learner administration. Micros KAS is the most professional solution for learner administration and is available as an add-on within aNewSpring. It is very flexible and can be adapted to your specific situation.
Buckaroo Online Payment Services offers a low cost and completely scalable online payment service. There are various payment methods available, for example credit card and iDeal.
We think your learners should be able to train whenever and wherever they want to. That’s why they cannot only use their computer, but also their iPad or smartphone to train with aNewSpring. Our platform is developed to provide you with the best possible usability. But that’s not all! Learners who make use of MemoTrainer can train on their smartphone using our MemoTrainer app.
With the aNewSpring Reference app learners can quickly get access to the the theory they have learned about. Our reference app checks what they have learned in the course and makes sure this information becomes available in the app. This way they have all their new knowledge mobile at hand!
Gamification challenges learners with different game elements. Learners can for example see their results right after a quiz and compare these with their fellow learners. This way, they are more motivated to do better on their test and score higher than their fellow learners.
Of course we offer the possibilities to add a lot more functionalities to your courses. These add-make your courses more versatile, interactive and fun to do!
