MATRIX releases two new major features, Rules and Gamification
May 20, 2015 Education News(PRLEAP.COM) May 20, 2015 - MATRIX, the simple, powerful LMS for businesses, announced the release of two new major features, Rules and Gamification.
These two features are definitely the best ones that MATRIX has released so far, making the platform one of the only Business LMS to incorporate a Rules engine into its core design.
CEO and Founder Graham Glass said: "We are very excited to release Rules and Gamification, especially since the rules engine has been engineered to be flexible enough to allow many other innovative features to be built upon it in the future."
The Rules Engine allows users to define actions that are triggered when certain conditions are met. For example, instructors can define a rule so that when a learner completes a beginner-level course, it automatically enrolls them into the intermediate level course or adds them to an "alumni" group. Other rules that can be defined include awarding badges, certificates, points, locking and unlocking modules, and sending custom canned messages.
Gamification allows learners to earn points and badges by doing certain tasks, advancing through levels as they gain points, and see their ranking on a leaderboard. The Rules Engine is used by Gamification to allow instructors to define under what conditions points and badges are awarded.
Combining Rules with Gamification makes a course more motivating, engaging, and introduces a fun competitive spirit between learners.
MATRIX is a simple, powerful LMS for businesses that makes it easy to deliver online training. The company was founded in 2010 by Graham Glass, the CEO of MATRIX and a serial entrepreneur with a track record of innovation. Graham is also the CEO of NEO, which provides a similar LMS for schools and universities.
