We also want to briefly mention Epignosis’s other eLearning solutions, TalentLMS and TalentCards.

TalentLMS is a cloud-based learning management system intended for use by businesses and organizations of all types and sizes. It is highly customizable and scalable, and shares many advanced features with eFront, like extensive support for gamification, eCommerce, blended learning and video conferencing.

TalentCards is an advanced mobile-learning solution that delivers microlearning content via smart learning cards. These cards can be enriched with bite-sized information in the form of text, image, video, audio or hyperlinks, and combined into sets to produce topic-specific training for different audiences. TalentCards also offers rich gamification features and post-course evaluation and reporting options.


eFront allows instructors to build rich courses by importing content from different sources and in various formats (e.g., SCORM, TinCan, HTML5, H5P, docs, videos, YouTube, etc.). It also has an assessment engine that supports multiple types of questions, quizzes, assignments, surveys, and tests with extensive reporting options on all results.

In addition, eFront supports the following eLearning features:

  • Multi-tenancy where clients can divide their training portal to as many sub-portals as they need according to their organizational structure. Customize and use each separately.
  • Learning paths so that courses are assigned based on user attributes and taken in a specific order
  • Course rules to define course order, completion conditions, and course prerequisites
  • Social learning, such as discussions and messages
  • Blended learning that combine online courses with ILT sessions whether classroom-based or via video conferencing
  • Gamification engine that supports points, badges, levels and leaderboards
  • Notifications via automatic emails triggered by certain events
  • Skills and skill gap testing that easily detect employees’ weaknesses with skill-gap tests and analysis
  • Jobs where managers can assign job-specific training to different audiences
  • Audiences feature that segment users in groups based on user attributes

  • Plugin library and custom plugin builder that allows client to customize any aspect of its training
  • Custom certificates and automated re-certification process

eFront also includes eCommerce features for companies that want to sell their training modules to interested parties outside of their organization (e.g., customers or clients).
