Motivis Learning At A Glance

Good: Motivis Learning connects student information from all parts of its platform, offering a 360-degree view of student data that educators need to create strategies for long-term success.
Bad: Motivis Learning's LMS doesn't have gamification features built into its platform.
Bottom Line: Flexible system allowing educators and students to check, adjust and connect over a student's learning path and performance.

Product Overview

Motivis Learning is a learning relationship management platform (LRM) with a learning management system (LMS), community engagement system and student information system. The platform allows students, teachers and administrators to view data and outcomes of a student’s entire learning program, not just a single course. For this review, we’ll focus on the features and functionality of Motivis Learning’s LMS.

Motivis Learning’s LMS is a flexible system that allows educators and students to check, adjust and connect over a student’s learning path and performance. The solution’s top benefits include:

  • Scalable and personalized learning for every student’s needs
  • Simple goal tracking and adjustment
  • Integration of student data with other systems in LRM platform
  • Collaboration between students and teachers
  • Flexible deadline assignments
  • User-friendly, feature-rich interface

Features

Motivis Learning offers many LMS features that not only allow students to see their progress (besides just their grades), but also give educators the tools they need to view everything a student’s done and provide useful feedback. Here’s a list of features that help personalize learning paths:

Authentic assessment – Choose the assessment model and criteria that best fit your learning strategy. This can be based on any scale system or a student’s competency.

Rubrics – Whether analytical or holistic, rubrics are complete assessments of required assignments. They’re responsive to the device you’re using, so rubrics can be easily viewed on a computer, tablet or phone.

Group discussions – Whole classes can engage in group discussions in a forum setting. Discussions can be linked to an assignment, but they don’t have to be. Instructors are able to pull out each student’s contribution for evaluation.

1 on 1 discussions – Educators can have discussions with individual students about a course topic or assignment. This can be helpful when educators notice a student needs additional help.

Aggregate coursework view – In just one click, instructors get a high-level view of an entire class’s progress. This can be broken out by learning outcomes for further evaluation.

Personalized learning plan – Educators can personalize learning paths on a student-by-student basis by creating custom rubrics, adding or removing assignments and updating assignment due dates.

Assignment calendar – Not only can instructors easily adjust a student’s assignments and due dates based on goals and progress, but students can get permission to manage their own calendar as well.

Access to student data – Motivis Learning connects student information from all parts of the LRM platform. This gives educators a 360-degree view of student data so they can create learning strategies for long-term success.

About

In 2013, the College for America (CfA) at Southern New Hampshire University was created as an experiment in competency-based education. Because a traditional LMS couldn’t support all the learning and analytics needs of this experiment, Motivis Learning created its LRM platform.

Since then, Motivis Learning has expanded on its student-centered learning model by providing a learning platform that combines content, communication, student information, goals and assessments.

Intuitive platform, excellent service

on 2018-04-03 06:21:11

The Motivis LMS aligns closely with our vision of a unified campus - it has allowed us to put our students at the core of our campus, and to ensure each staff member has access to a holistic view of each student. The interface is modern and intuitive, and we have had some excellent feedback from staff and students alike.
While we had to do some customisation on top of our own Salesforce implementation for our unique use case, every update from Motivis brings great new features that we can take advantage of and the installation of the updates is clear and problem-free.
Working with the Motivis team to implement the platform has been a pleasure from the beginning - extremely professional and all experts in their field. The team continues to provide excellent service.
