WizIQ the Only All-in-One Cloud-Based Learning Management System Designed for the Education Sector

Fast Setup, Ease-of-Use and Advanced Capabilities of WizIQ LMS Optimize the Online Teaching and Learning Experience

APEX, NC--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2014) -  WizIQ, the online education company with 300,000 active educators and 3.7 million registered learners, today introduced the WizIQ LMS -- a powerful all-in-one learning management system (LMS) that sets a new standard for ease-of-use, convenience and affordability. The new WizIQ LMS is the only fully-integrated, cloud-based social learning platform tailored for the needs of a new generation of learners.

Colleges and universities, high schools, and training and tutoring centers can use the online learning platform to quickly create and deliver self-paced, live online or blended courses -- without the need for third-party plug-ins or added costs to support advanced features.

Current-generation LMS platforms typically require added plug-ins to support live, online courses, mobile learning and other advanced features -- with a high total cost of ownership when additional fees for setup, IT support, maintenance, hosting and customization are considered. Further, their user interfaces are often outdated and difficult-to-use. In contrast, the WizIQ LMS is built on a modern architecture with social collaboration and in-browser content viewing built-in. The system takes just seconds to setup without any training or IT support required, and supports any number of students with a flexible, SaaS-based pricing model.

"Other Learning Management Systems are not built for today's instant-information society, as most of these systems were designed over a decade ago," said Harman Singh, founder and CEO of WizIQ. "Our next-generation WizIQ LMS provides educators with a comprehensive, hassle-free platform aligned with the latest best practices in online learning. It offers the lowest total cost of ownership of any LMS on the market today."

Next-Generation Capabilities Deliver An Unrivaled Learning Experience
The WizIQ LMS offers the industry's most-advanced feature set, enabling teachers to create an effective and fun learning experience. All the right tools for eLearning and blended learning are available out-of-the-box including:

  • Course management - Create self-paced or live, interactive courses without the pain of traditional LMS hassles.
  • Secure video streaming - Share HD-quality videos via the platform's built-in video hosting and streaming feature, enabling learners to play video files seamlessly just like YouTube.
  • Fast and easy content sharing - Teachers can create their own digital content library by uploading and sharing Microsoft Office files, PDFs, videos or anything available on the web.
  • Single-click access to content - Learners can view content online with just a single click, without the hassle of downloading files.
  • Advanced assessment capabilities - Teachers can create advanced online tests via time-bound and scheduled tests, adding multiple sections and multiple-choice questions.
  • Virtual Classroom for live sessions - Teachers can activate the WizIQ Virtual Classroom to create and deliver live courses, enabling them to engage with and teach students face-to-face.
  • Social and peer-to-peer learning - In line with today's social media world, teachers can engage learners in social learning and increase their knowledge through collaborative learning and peer-to-peer discussions.

Ease-of-Use with 24/7 Support
Unlike other LMS platforms, there is no training required to use the WizIQ LMS. The user interface is simple and intuitive, with all features just a click away. Since the platform is cloud-based, no installations, backups or additional vendors are ever required for setup and implementation. Whenever a question arises from a teacher or student, 24X7 assistance is instantly available via phone, chat and email.

Ongoing Updates Ensure for Latest Best Practices
WizIQ provides frequent, ongoing updates to its LMS at no additional cost to customers. For example, a new mLearning application will be launched later this fall to enable learners to access course files and videos, as well as participate in real-time discussions and live classes, on their mobile devices. In addition, advanced analytics capabilities will provide insight on how to improve content and engagement, with detailed student reports including test scores, comparative score details, and attendance reports. Since WizIQ LMS is cloud-based, these updates are seamless to the user. No installation is required, just a login as usual.
