Phase 1 of the Spring 2016 Release, Available Now, Brings Enhanced Functions to Logical Operations CHOICE® Learning Management System Platform

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - April 20, 2016) - Logical Operations, the world's leading provider of information technology instructor-led courseware, is pleased to announce that phase 1 of the spring 2016 release of the Logical Operations CHOICE® learning management system is available now and includes several new and exciting features. Following the initial phase 1 release, phases 2 and 3 (available in the coming months) will feature even more exciting updates, such collaboration enhancements and a cloud eBook reader.

"In building Logical Operations CHOICE®, we've put our emphasis on the instructor and how to teach and manage in a modern classroom environment where students and instructors may be remote from each other and may not even learn in the same time zones," remarked Bill Rosenthal, CEO of Logical Operations. "As the cost of remote learning technology has come down and the capability has increased, we can now create a learning experience -- even when the instructor and students are remote -- that delivers on the high-quality promise of learning from an expert, and avoids many of the pitfalls of pure e-learning where students work independent of an expert to help them learn," added Rosenthal.

Phase 1 of the spring 2016 release of CHOICE includes the following enhancements, with additional updates to come in phases 2 and 3:

  • Cloud Locker -- Students can load assignment content to their Cloud Locker and share with their instructor and other students taking the course.
  • Enhanced Course Messaging -- Provides instructors with the additional capability to message students each time they log into the system or enter a course, and under a variety of other circumstances.

"We purposely built the Logical Operations CHOICE® learning management system to bring these new technologies to the instructor-led classroom, and are excited about the introduction of even more capabilities in our spring 2016 release. It will bring a new level of teaching capability to instructors and enable even better instances of remote learning," said Mike Hoyt, VP of Platforms and Publishing, Logical Operations.

Phases 2 and 3 will include the following updates:

  • Collaboration Enhancements -- Discussion Boards within the each course allow students and instructors to collaborate remotely across location and time. Discussion Boards provide an outlet for open discussion available to all students in a course. This feature complements the existing private messaging capabilities available between instructors and students.
  • Cloud eBook Reader -- Students may read their course materials while online and any notes/highlights they make are saved to the student account in the cloud so they are always available no matter what platform the students use, whether it is Windows, Android, or iOS.
