Float has released SparkLearn, a microlearning platform that allows for easy publishing and viewing of learning content, including courses and resource documents.
“We created SparkLearn to close that gap between content creators and their audiences,” said Chad Udell, managing partner of Float. “Getting your microlearning content to learners has never been easier.”
The platform can import content—such as courses, documents, presentations, and more—that has been developed with tools like Office, Acrobat, Adapt, Rise, Captivate, and other HTML5 tools, as easily as updating a blog post. The LCMS interface is also flexible enough to support content created directly in the system.
“Once your content is in the system, your users can view it in an attractive app for iOS or Android that is branded to match your company’s identity,” Udell said. “The app handles assessments, and it can provide performance support tools like search and favorites to make sure the most important content is easily available for your learners.”
All activity in the user app is tracked with the industry-standard Experience API (xAPI). Other analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, Flurry, or Adobe Analytics, are also a snap to plug into the system.
“One of Float’s core tenets is user-centered design, so SparkLearn was built for both administrators and end users,” Udell said. “For example, administrators should find that the CMS comes with only necessary functions that free it of bloat. Additionally, end users will find that they—not the platform—are in control of accessing content and can easily move through the curriculum.”
Float representatives will be providing in-person demonstrations throughout FocusOn Learning 2017 Conference & Expo, June 20 – 22 in San Diego, California. To learn more about SparkLearn, visit Float at Booth 210.
