LearningStone provides a private learning and collaboration environment for trainers and coaches. You can set up a LearningStone workspace containing groups of trainees or coachees without any tech skills at all. With its easy-to-use block system and many other powerful functions, you’ll be able to upload learning materials, organize your participants and start collaborating in no time.
LearningStone is used in agencies, companies, and institutions by training or coaching professionals who need to support either blended training or coaching with an excellent digital platform. LearningStone is offered on a low cost subscription service or as a dedicated technology platform.
Organize your participants
Invite, register, and manage your participants with the powerful member organizer. Participants sign up and enter own details, picture, and profile, saving everyone time. Everyone can set their own privacy settings and decide on the amount of email notifications.
Course timelines & a wall
Present a course timeline to a group of trainees or individual coachees, and a wall or ‘social timeline’ as one of many ways of collaborating (on the right). Events trigger notifications to remind participants of their schedules, to motivate them, and to stimulate collaboration.
Build course timelines
The course editor allows you to create a timeline using the unique block system. The right block exists for all your needs—whether it’s a survey, an assignment, a text, a calendar event, a video, documents, or even scheduled messages to encourage learning.
Reuse courses in minutes
Copy and reuse existing course timelines and collect them in a library. Every repeated course will be less work.
Add a public website
Add a public website to the private communication functions. Use your own design and associate it with your domain name, such as demo.learningstone.com. Use the friendly content management system to add images, videos, links, etc.
Add content and integrate external resources
Integrate YouTube, Vimeo, and other external content. Upload your own images, videos, documents, and PowerPoint presentations. Use the folders in the ‘Docs’ storage area and the galleries to share learning content and upload assignments.
Send messages and newsletters
The powerful message center lets you and your participants send messages and newsletters to individuals or groups. You can also inform former participants about new courses. People can always choose to unsubscribe from your messages, so you don’t need to worry about spamming them. You can reply to mail from LearningStone straight from your normal mailbox.
Have access to participants and course information anywhere you go. Add content or members on the fly.
Surveys and forms
Create powerful surveys and forms to collect information, evaluate or check up on your participants’ knowledge.
LearningStone is building a technology platform to solve many problems non tech trainers and coaches have: planning, storage, presenting a course and collaboration within learning groups. LearningStone was recently selected as the main platform for the American eLearning Guild.
