Saint Louis, MO (USA), May 2017 – ej4, an award-winning eLearning-content and learning-management-system (LMS) provider has added a new social-community feature to its LMS, Thinkzoom. This new space was created to encourage learners to connect with other learners for friendly competition, knowledge sharing, and training reinforcement for a more engaging learning experience.
Ryan Eudy, Chief Executive Officer of ej4, stated, "Social learning and gamification are more than just industry buzzwords. They have been proven to increase productivity by accelerating onboarding, speeding the problem-solving process with peer collaboration, and improving the learning of passive learners by giving them access to their peers of choice."
The Quad is a new feature of the Thinkzoom (LMS) campus with which learners can create their own informal network of peers beyond their formal assigned groups. They can see how they stack up against their peers through leaderboards, recent activity of courses viewed, badges earned, exams taken, and comments posted in their network. All clients of ej4 on the Thinkzoom platform automatically have access to this new social community as part of their existing license agreement.
