At Educadium, we're always trying to make our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder platform more powerful and convenient.

Recently, we added a handy Learner Progress Bar tool to our EasyCampus Add-Ons store. When installed on your EasyCampus, the colorful Progress Bar is a visual way for your learners to monitor their success within an EasyCampus course. Course creators can let students track:

  • Assignment submissions
  • Forum postings
  • Quiz attempts
  • Choice answers
  • Feedback survey responses
  • Various pages viewed

 Learer Progress Bar Menu

Your students will benefit from an intuitive activity-checkmark system within your courses. Due dates for activities are also displayed.

The Learner Progress Bar costs $495 to install, and you can make it visible on all of your courses. As with every EasyCampus Add-On, it includes a training session and our full support, including a 90-day limited warranty. It's worth checking out!

People learn differently. 

That's especially true when it comes to software and learning management platforms. Some users want step-by-step written guides, while others seek out video tutorials.

We get it. The EasyCampus Support team has put together a range of materials to help you build the best online school and training platform in the world. Plus, there's always free online LMS help when you need it.

Now, we're excited to take online instruction to the next level. We call it EasyCampus Learn, and it's coming in November. EC Learn is a stand-alone training site to help you build out a world-class learning program using EasyCampus and other innovative tools.

EasyCampus Learn

What can you expect?

  • Free and advanced courses for trainers and admins
  • Learning management administration tips
  • Online course design and instruction
  • EasyCampus tutorials
  • A user community forum
  • Other self-help and support

Several new online courses will make it easier than ever to roll out training programs and virtual schools using EasyCampus. "Create a Self-Paced Course," for instance, will help you: plan your courses easily and effectively; design the structure of your self-paced course; add content such as media and other external elements; and test the course to be sure it works before you allow students to enter.

Educadium expects to offer a variety of free and paid courseware, along with a range of other support materials. We think it will be a great addition to our fast-growing EasyCampus community, which now spans the globe. Stay tuned!

Improvements for the EasyCampus LMS
Written by Administrator   
Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:30

Recently, Educadium carried out a large update to our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder platform. Benefits include more affordable, templated features and new pricing packages, available to prospective and existing EasyCampus users. 

At the same time, we made a number of small but significant changes to improve performance and to squash a few bugs. It's all part of Educadium's ongoing commitment to build and maintain the best and most affordable learning management system.

 Why Choose EasyCampus?

Updates and Upgrades:

  • Improved the Subscription Upgrade page for existing campuses to allow campus owners to
    select new pricing packages. A link is available to admins within every EasyCampus
  • Improved course backup/restore capabilities so that HTML blocks can now be restored correctly
  • Installed a new logo refresh capability to alleviate browser cache issues associated with the logo upload tool

EasyCampus Bug Fixes:

  • Notification functionality fixed to prevent faulty error messages
  • Gradebook error fixed so that course quizzes in selected courses report more accurately
  • Error messages fixed so that they don't contain faulty links
  • Miscellaneous language fixes for grammatical errors or misleading information
  • Miscellaneous theme updates to fix small CSS errors

On the horizon, expect to see a major update to the text-based help files visible across the EasyCampus system. It was a major support project, but this will improve the on-screen help available to campus administrators and users. These new help files will be pushed out to all existing EasyCampus installations in the coming weeks.

Of course, we continue to enhance our publicly available Support pages. If you haven't visited this area, filled with step guides and videos, we encourage you to do so, especially in advance of building your first courses.

Thanks to all of our users for their feedback. It's helping us improve EasyCampus for educators and trainers around the world.

New Pricing Options for EasyCampus
Written by Administrator   
Saturday, 25 September 2010 08:15

Educadium has some exciting new updates to share. Online learning has just gotten a little easier.

This summer, we rolled out a new online store for our EasyCampus Add-Ons. These Add-Ons, such as Google Apps Integration and Enhanced Reporting, are now available for purchase (most for under $1,000). They come with a 90-day limited warranty and the full support of our Professional Services team.

Now, we have gone a step further and incorporated and streamlined some of the most popular Add-Ons and services into several convenient (and powerful) subscription packages.

This has resulted in some name changes to our offerings with three, more distinct tiers of subscriptions--Standard, Preferred and Premium. We still offer the free "Express" and custom-built packages.

The older Professional, Community, and Enterprise subscriptions have now become part of the Standard subscription--at the same low price starting at $39/month for up to 500 registered users. All new subscription bundles are available today in a variety of user configurations and payment options.

What's different about the new plans? EasyCampus owners can now start off with more popular features through the Preferred and Premium subscriptions, saving valuable time and money.

We think the best value by far is with the Preferred subscription. Starting at just $99/month for 500 users, the new Preferred packages comes pre-installed with some high-quality and useful features:

  • Enhanced Reporting
  • Conditional Activities
  • Course Bundles
  • Form Maker

For small and large organizations who need more service, support, and professional branding, we offer the Premium subscription. Starting at $99/month for 250 users, the new Premium package includes:

  • Everything in the Preferred package
  • Additional Admin Training and Resources
  • Custom Theme and URL

Inside your existing EasyCampus in the My Account area, you can upgrade at any time to the new packages with pricing based on the number of expected users. A complete description is found on our Pricing page, where you can sign up for an EasyCampus with a credit card or through PayPal.

If you're a current EasyCampus subscriber, no action is necessary. Feel free to see if one of the newer bundles meets your needs or add additional accounts as needed for your newly named Standard package. Add-Ons and custom services are still available to all EasyCampus owners.

If you're an Express user or are new to EasyCampus, please contact Educadium Support with any questions about the new tiered offerings. We're also happy to arrange a webinar for all prospective and current customers to review all of the options.

Google Apps for EasyCampus

Today, Educadium released three new Add-Ons for our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder Platform. These optional services provide additional power and flexibility to one of the world's best values in learning management systems. They are available in the EasyCampus Add-On store on the Educadium website.

So what's new? Plenty. We're excited to offer our first Google Add-On. The newest offerings include:

  • Google Apps Integration ($1,995). Organizations want seamless access to their Google Apps and user accounts within EasyCampus. This is ideal for many schools where Google tools are used. The powerful Add-On integrates a variety of Google services (Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Gmail) and enables seamless cross-authentication within your EasyCampus.  
  • Session Tracking ($995). Educators and trainers often need to estimate online “seat time” for compliance or regulatory purposes. The Session Tracking Add-On lets administrators add a block to any EasyCampus course in order to track session time based on user click activity. The data of all registered user session times can be downloaded for record-keeping.
  • Form Maker ($495). There are many uses for the versatile Form Maker Add-On. Educators and administrators often need to collect information about users before they enroll them in online courses. Form Maker makes it easy to create simple or advanced forms for registration or course-related purposes. Collected data can then be downloaded as a spreadsheet.

These new Add-Ons solve real-world learning concerns, and we're happy to offer them to our subscribers. Pricing includes installation, training, and documentation. Visit the Add-On page today for more information. Or contact support@educadium if you have further technical questions.
