21. September 2015
From now on, the creators of learning contents, presentations or multimedia modules can use the IMC Teach cloud service for free via the website. With the new offer, IMC is providing a holistic solution for the creation, upload and distribution of own contents as well as for the assessment of usage intensity and the achieved learning outcomes. The service includes an authoring software with comprehensive features, which can be used immediately after download to create new courses, interactive presentations and knowledge tests as well as the didactic fine-tuning of existing materials.
With IMC Teach, the created contents can be published into a cloud environment and distributed to target groups of any size, all around the globe.
Access to the learning units is possible from any device. Thanks to an integrated offline functionality, the materials and courses can also be used when no internet connection is available.
“A great benefit of IMC Teach is the integration with our authoring software. This allows us to address the mega trend ‘video-based learning’ in the education sector with an easy-to-use tool, however, with the option of direct integration into a didactic concept, for example the mapping of learning paths or by adding interactive quizzes to these videos, for an even richer experience,” says Christian Wachter, Board Spokesperson of IMC AG.
In addition, the service offers the creators of online courses the opportunity of obtaining information at any time, via a dashboard, about how many and which invited participants have already registered for a course and who has passed or failed the course.
The new offering was developed in particular for small- and medium-sized companies, which regularly have to train their staff members on topics such as occupational safety or procedures, however, only require a few of the many features of a modern authoring software or a learning management system.
An additional benefit of the new solution, compared to conventional sharing platforms, is the possibility to integrate knowledge tests into the created courses, the results of which the system analyses automatically. With this evaluation component, the course creator cannot only draw conclusions based on the processing status, about which contents are received best by the users and which are not. He can also request individual learners to repeat a course if they did not pass it the first time.
IMC has used its expertise from 20 years of software development to equip IMC Teach with all the necessary features that will allow even less-experienced content creators a quick entry and secure handling of the tool.
An expansion of the service and additional service provisions is planned for the future. “We will gradually expand the functionalities with marketing, dialogue and reporting features and also the integration into social networks is being considered,” explains Dr. Tobias Blickle, Board Member, responsible for products at IMC AG.
