We make it easy for learners and instructors to connect
Easily communicate using our messaging system that includes bidirectional email integration, so you can receive messages via email and respond via email as well.
Click to chat
Use the click to chat feature to instantly connect with other users that are online at the same time in the platform.
Add users as friends
Allow learners to make connections with users by adding them as friends. They can see which friends are online and chat with them to collaborate on projects.
Boost training participation using interactive tools
Instructors and learners can create wikis, which are a collection of pages that more than one person can edit. The history for each page is kept so that you can see the edits and who made them. In addition, you can restore a page to one of its previous versions. We support course and group wikis.
A chat room allows a group of users to exchange text messages in real time. Courses and groups have their own private chat rooms. You can also initiate a chat directly with a user if they are online.
Blogs are a great way of sharing ideas. We offer support for personal blogs, course blogs, group blogs, and even company blogs that can be displayed on the company portal.
Instructors and learners can discuss various topics in courses or groups using forums. Discussions are threaded so it's easy to follow a conversation.
Encourage collaboration between users
Choose the type of group
You can create groups to collaborate at a company level or you can have private groups that are only accessible for users within a specific course.
Enable teamwork using groups
Groups are a great outlet for sharing resources, ideas and boosting collaboration between learners and instructors. They can be used for training, company events, group projects, and ad-hoc collaboration.
Adjust group options based on needs
Each group whether it's course-wide or site-wide, can have its own activity feed, calendar, resources area, and collaboration tools.
Teams are a special kind of group that includes the concept of "team leaders". You can allow leaders to enroll team members into courses, to run reports on members, and use automation to trigger actions.
Instructors and admins from all MATRIX platforms can use community groups to connect and share ideas on training topics.
Easily plan and manage your events
Schedule and manage events using our color-coded calendar. Use the live feed to easily integrate with other calendar clients. Courses and groups can have individual calendars. Keep track of all your tasks using the agenda view.
Schedule your live meetings directly from our calendar
Easily connect from any location using our web conferencing tools. Integrate your favorite web conferencing tool or use our built-in integration with Zoom, WebEx, GoToMeeting, GoToTraining and Skype for Business. Schedule web-conferencing meetings directly from the calendar.
The learners like the forums, discussions, and debates features.Janice Jobey, Specialist at Early Learning Innovations
