Over two thousand years ago, the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, said, “the only thing that is constant is change.” In agreement or disagreement, while it may be constant, change is most powerful when it is focused, supportive, and intentional. Our latest READynamic release harnesses those three elements to deliver specific and practical changes to save institutions, educators, and students grief, time, and money.
In our January blog post, the Datalogics team shared a vision for our signature EdTech business and classroom solution, READynamic, that centered on two key elements. First, in 2018, we’re more focused than ever on strategic partnerships. We’re proud members of both Instructure, the providers of the Canvas learning management system (LMS), and IMS Global, an organization driven to create innovative and supportive educational technology solutions. The second piece of the puzzle was earning the IMS Global Learning Consortium’s Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) certification. We’re proud to announce that our latest READynamic release is LTI certified and available today! Missions accomplished!
Certification means that READynamic is meeting a global standard that connects learning applications, like us, with supported outside learning portals, repositories, and platforms, like Blackboard, Moodle, and Canvas, with ease. Simply put, READynamic is ready to plug-and-play with the most popular learning management systems available right out of the box. That means quick and seamless deployment without additional development costs and delays to support institutions of any size in any setting. In addition, the LTI standard also supports secure navigation between tools, without the need to individually log into each tool during use.
You read that right! READynamic gained certification to save you time and money, AND ease tool transition pains. We’re certified because it supports our customers, and that’s the right thing to do. Period.
Interoperability means that READynamic books can be launched directly from your LMS; we even track individual reader participation across devices with Caliper Analytics support to offer learner insights when you need them. Our READynamic graded assessments can also be launched directly from LTI supported learning platforms. As learners complete assessments, scores flow back to grade reports automatically, behind the scenes, for smooth and simple concept mastery validation.
READynamic is charged and ready for corporate and classroom learning opportunities with powerful features that revolutionize reading to increase learner attention and retention, and our latest release keeps all of those strengths intact. READynamic continues to transform flat reading into multimedia, multi-modal learning experiences that engage readers beyond texts with study tools, social engagement opportunities, and customizable assessments, and our newly acquired IMS Global® LTI certification makes our dynamic PDF and EPUB reading solution more friendly and more flexible than it’s even been. Focused, supportive, and intentional change is good!
