Angel Learning Previews Angel LMS 7.2
3/2/2007—Education software developer Angel Learning has announced a new version of its learning management system, Angel LMS 7.2. The new release will add full learning outcomes management integration, as well as new communications tools. It's expected to be available in April.
Angel LMS is a learning management system designed for both K-12 and higher ed. The upcoming 7.2 release integrates a number of new features that were previously available only through separate purchases.
These include new fully integrated support for learning outcomes management. For K-12 users, this feature allows institutions to map to standards and to administer LOM centrally. In higher ed, it allows for linking to learning objectives and institutional standards. It also provides reports comparing student performance against desired outcomes.
Angel LMS also features a new assessment engine, which is designed to improve the processes of creating and managing assessments. Some of the new assessment features include:
- Question Banks to support assessment content management;
- Assessment Item Analysis for feedback on assessment items;
- Assessment reporting in Angel's At a Glance format; and
- Interaction controls and mastery settings.
On the digital media side, Angel LMS 7.2 will also include integrated podcasting, course syndication, wikis and blogging.
The new version of Angel LMS will be available in April. The company is also offering demos on its website.Read More:Angel Learning
