“Our standards-based content solutions incorporate best practices in learning design, editorial, user experience, media development, accessibility, and quality assurance.” the company says on their website.
LearnignMate has developed three important tools for higher education; Frost, LearningMate Assessment tool kit and Quad.
Frost, is a next generation authoring for digital and interactive courseware tool. Utilizing frost educators can take their legacy content or new ideas and turn them into digital, interactive lessons designed for today’s students. LearningMate has included simple, easy to understand tools for content creation like a legacy content uploader tool and a WYSIWYG editor that gives educators a look at exactly what they are creating. What’s even better is LearningMate customizes each instance of Frost so no two are exactly the same.
Once you’ve created outstanding new beautiful content with Frost you’re more than likely going to want to start building assessments. LearningMate’s Assessment ToolKit brings that easy to understand structure to creating assessments as well.
“LearningMate Assessment Toolkit features everything you need to accelerate the development of your assessment product and scale it into the future.” the company says.
Their Assessment ToolKit features the ability to author and manage 50+ different question types. It also gives you the ability to assess students on any device and when and where you need it. The backend for instructors features real time data making it possible for instructors to immediately monitor a students performance.
Quad is a next generation question authoring and delivering tool designed for the authoring of assessment items and interactive widgets. It features preloaded templates and customizable workflows to support the rapid development and deployment of assessment items.
While LearningMate has thought of a lot of ways to utilize technology in higher education, they know they haven’t thought of everything. Their engineering team of developers, designers and software engineers has the experience to tackle any education technology project K-20.
