JERICHO, N.Y., June 30, 2011
JERICHO, N.Y. , June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — (HCCS) Health Care Compliance Strategies, Inc., the leading provider of online healthcare compliance and competency training, today announced the release of an update for the HCCS Learning Management System, SimPL – The Simple Platform for Learning. This new update adds key classroom management features to the existing online training and eLearning functions.
The classroom management enhancement allows course administrators to schedule and track classroom activities. Key features provide administrators with the ability to add classes to the system, pre-register learners for sessions, configure classes for self-registration, print sign-in sheets, provide users with attendance credit for tracking purposes, send email reminders and much more. Administrators can also add mandatory post-tests to a given class. Administrators and staff can use one system for both online and classroom training requirements.
“From the onset, the SimPL Learning Management System has afforded healthcare organizations the ability to implement comprehensive educational programs that assist in maintaining compliance within an ever-changing environment,” says Ben Diamond , President of HCCS. “These new classroom features enable SimPL to meet the learning management needs of even more organizations, while continuing to remain a cost-effective solution.”
In addition to extending the role of the administrator, this new update to SimPL provides administrators and learners an easy to use, intuitive interface. Managers can quickly view class assignments for their staff as well as the status of assignments. Learners can view their individual required classes, self-register for classes using a calendar, take mandatory post-tests for classes and view their completed classes. All classroom and online activities are easily accessible with clearly visible status.
“More and more organizations are discovering that they are paying for features that they aren't using,” says Mr. Diamond. “SimPL can replace overpriced, complex Learning Management Systems with a low-cost system that can meet the core learning needs while providing a simple, productive user interface. Organizations that want to lower costs AND meet their enterprise learning requirements are switching to SimPL.”
