Serebra Learning Corporation  has announced important enhancements to the Serebra Campus learning management system (LMS) that will combine features designed to better service existing clientele with features that will distinguish Serebra as a leader in the industry.
“At Serebra we are constantly innovating and looking for ways to increase student engagement and satisfaction with our systems,” said Serebra’s acting President, Taleeb Noormohamed. “Taking into consideration feedback from our valued clients, we’ve made revisions and enhancements that will empower administrators and streamline the learning process.”
In addition to numerous application improvements, Serebra has added new features to Serebra Campus, including:
Learning Plans: The new learning plan feature offers administrators the unique ability to organize courses into educational paths directly related to employees’ career plans and goals. Learners can review plans that have been assigned to them and track their personal progress. This feature will allow organizations to formalize their training and development programs and effectively manage short and long-term career development of employees.
Custom Course Management: The latest release of Serebra Campus allows administrators to upload and manage proprietary SCORM or AICC custom courseware. Administrators can now preview the training before making it available to students and ensure that it is working as they expect. Organizations that create their own content can now track, manage and deliver their courses more effectively and efficiently.
Student Training Dashboard: When students log into the system they will now be directed to the My Training Dashboard, which will provide them with a snapshot of their training activity with an emphasis on compliance and learning plan progress. This streamlines the learning experience and keeps students on track with their learning.
Edmonton-based Lifelong Learn  is proud to offer two new additions to their library of children’s e-books  on their website. The children’s books from Lifelong Learn provide an enjoyable reading experience while motivating basic reading skills, left to right progression, turning pages, identifying words through pictures, early research, and much more. The concept books are available to assist caregivers (parents, families, early childhood educators, and teachers) on how to motivate a child’s developmental process.
One of the new books offered by Lifelong Learn is called Feelings. This easy-to-read book helps children with identifying feelings. Each feeling is represented in two variations and in two languages. Identification of feelings is a critical skill in the early years of development because it supports the building of positive self-esteem and social competence.
The second book now offered by Lifelong Learn is called All in a Day’s Play Child Development at Work and is intended for caregivers. This book identifies developmental milestones through the use of photographs and scenarios for all developmental areas. It is organized into developmental, color coded categories and each section has pull out charts that can be posted for easy reference. This reference takes the guesswork out of planning activities or deciding on appropriate toys or equipment to match the child’s level of skill and abilities.
According to Dr. Crowther, raising or educating a smart and healthy child is not by chance. It requires dedication, patience, and knowledge by all caregivers, parents, families, childcare professionals and teachers. Lifelong Learn Inc. is a company dedicated to help increase the knowledge and skill of caregivers to enhance children’s development – intellectual, social, emotional, language, motor, and developmentally appropriate practices. These two new additions to their library of helpful e-books is the perfect place to start looking for ways to educate one’s self on enhancing a child’s development.
