Social networking with LMS and MOOC functionality
CourseNetworking (CN) offers cloud based, next generation online learning management and delivery services based on social networking. We serve universities, K-12 institutions, corporations and organizations. CN is designed to complement existing learning management systems (LMS) such as Moodle, Sakai, Blackboard, Canvas, etc., or to be used as a full-scale LMS and Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) provider, operating on a worldwide, academic social networking platform. Membership and course hosting is free to all individual members throughout the world. Optional paid service agreements to schools, corporations and other organizations are available for a subscription to a private CN Channel which includes additional paid features.
The CN is built to make teaching and learning easy and engaging. Within minutes, an instructor can create a course site and invite students to join. Students will be automatically paired with global classmates who are studying the same or similar subjects to enable cross country or institution learning. With CN’s translation tool, global classmates can communicate with each other instantaneously. The CN also has mobile apps available for iPhone and Android devices, allowing users to take their courses wherever they go.
