The planning and execution of the learning and training process sometimes needs more than a manual for support. For this reason, we have developed Priima Academy which offers our customers the possibility to learn about Priima - in Priima.
One of the main improvements was that we expanded the ways that Priima can be used by making it possible to share courses outside of Priima. The implementation is based on Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) technology that is widely used in online learning and sharing courses is relatively simple.
Although the system is easy to use, instructions and tips are still needed to make the most out of it. You don’t have to come up with everything yourself - we want to provide our customers with the necessary support, guidance and training for Priima. That is why we have introduced Help Center to support Priima users to get quickly about with the more challenging features.
In the April update, we released dynamic groups in Priima that enable a wide variety of learning paths and processes. The so-called ordinary, i.e. manually created, group is formed by selecting a group of users into it. In many situations, this is a great way to target online teaching to the people you want to, but wouldn’t it be convenient to form groups automatically at times?
This year has started out fast for Priima. Different functions have been developed further and a big bundle of new features has also been released. Now the gaze is strongly directed forward: what, and what kind of, Priima will be in the future.
The functions related to course implementation and evaluation are the central part of e-learning. Priima LMS offers a variety of tools for these needs: courses can be just browsable content or a set of assignments with different passing criteria. Evaluation can either be automated from start to finish or, if so desired, defined entirely to be done by professionals. Whatever the needs of an organisation and courses, Priima is flexible in supporting various implementations of e-learning.
In Priima LMS, learning analytics is an important part of monitoring and supporting the learning process. Your role determines what information is visible to you. When tracking analytics, ease and speed are essential: visual elements of the dashboard, courses and different activities quickly convey the stage of the learning process.
In collaborative and problem-based learning, the group defines its own learning needs and seeks solutions to them together by reflecting and developing ideas. Priima LMS provides the right environment when it comes to implementing collaborative learning online.
Learning happens everywhere, continuously – it’s not just about work or school. At its best, learning means inspiring insights, the accumulation of new knowledge and skills. Our goal in Priima LMS is to build the best possible framework for developing competencies and supporting diverse learning processes.
On Thursday May 23, I got on a plane from Oulu towards Priima breakfast event in Helsinki. The early bird caught the worm. Many of our customers had arrived to hear about Priima's spring.
