There are several theoretical options:
Purchase an external LMS system (learning management system) and, further, integrate it with the Bitrix 24 portal.
Develop your own corporate training system based on Bitrix 24.
Purchase a turnkey solution from Novus-HCM.
In first case, you need developers of Bitrix and acquired LMS-system. You will have to develop terms of reference, allocate a budget, implement integration, test it and constantly support two systems.
The second case has unpredictable results with high costs. We have seen such companies. They hired Bitrix partners and tried to develop their own solutions and / or automate process using the regular Bitrix technologies. This always had a bad final - no result, wasted budget and time.
The third option is to purchase a ready-made, deeply integrated with Bitrix 24 solution from Novus-HCM. You can install the app and run training, knowledge testing or 360 assessment in 1 day. Without any restrictions, including number of users. Creating your own corporate university has never been so affordable and easy. Even the smallest company will be able to implement it.
Our application is a full-fledged educational portal that is not inferior, and in some moments even surpasses the best analogues of HCM systems (human capital management). Due to an advanced technology stack, a convenient and understandable interface, thoughtful functionality and deep integration with Bitrix.
Let's take a closer look at what can be implemented using our application.
Using our app you can organize online training of your employees on Bitrix 24 by creating learning courses in the following formats:
Video lessons uploaded to video hosting sites;
Links to external or internal content;
Other additional materials.
The course may consist of lessons and tests (intermediate or final). Courses can be assembled from lessons and tests in a very simple and convenient form (drag & drop technology).
Training of external users
With the help of our app you can organize distance learning of external users. For example, you have partners who need to be trained. At the same time using our app you can restrict access to your Bitrix24 portal. You can even open access to specific courses without opening access to other courses and tests.
Create a group for extranet users, add users and the courses/tests that you want to open to them. Done. External users will see only courses and tests added.
Knowledge testing in Bitrix 24
You can test the knowledge of employees or external users using the built-in testing module. Module contains following types of questions:
Choice - it is necessary to choose one or more correct answers from the proposed set;
Sequence - it is necessary to restore the correct sequence;
Compliance - restoring correct compliance;
Open - responder must enter the answer in a free form and a separately appointed examiner must check and rate;
Substitution - it is necessary to substitute the correct data in the missing field.
It is possible to import/export tests, output questions and answers in random order and many other test settings.
Learning process support
Bitrix itself contains a very good tool - groups. Our app is integrated with Bitrix 24 groups. You can create a group from our app or import existing one.
By creating a group in Bitrix and adding specific courses and tests there you can restrict access to them to those employees who are added to the group. At the same time other employees will not see the courses/tests added to the group.
Bitrix group allows students to:
Communicate on the subject of learning;
Add learning tasks;
Add files (for example, additional methodological materials);
Plan group events in the calendar. Including planning and conducting a video call or webinar using the built-in standard tools of Bitrix 24;
Create a knowledge base, wiki pages, longreads.
Bitrix learning group is an opportunity to create a full-fledged learning ecosystem from e-learning platform.
360 degree feedback in Bitrix 24
If it is necessary to evaluate not knowledge, but competencies, then the 360 assessment will allow you to do this. With the help of our app you can organize a mass or individual assessment of competencies of employees, create libraries of competencies.
Other features of educational platform
App contains a large number of different settings:
Filters, sections, tags for easy search of educational content;
Assignment of courses or tests - you can assign and control learning and testing;
Reports - receive reports on the completion of learning and testing;
Gamification - set points for courses and tests, assign ratings.
Every user can set a convenient language. Following languages are currently available:
We do not stop at this point and plan to implement following features:
Competence management - management of corporate, managerial, professional competencies;
Newcomers learning - all new employees will be assigned necessary courses or tests automatically;
PDP - personal development plans;
Succession and planning.
In fact our online learning platform will become a full-fledged HCM-system (human capital management) that helps to develop employees of organization. Given the rich functionality of Bitrix and our solution, as well as the deep integration of our solution with Bitrix, there are no analogues of such systems in the world.
