Sophisticated delivery and management functionality is the key
to personalized learning on the Web.
This is a stand alone learning management system which has the
primary purpose to:
- Deliver Web-based curriculum and personalized learning
services to students
- Provide a communication forum between students and instructors
- Deliver testing and evaluation services to students and
The purpose of this module is to provide a complete
Web-based, integrated, self-serve registration system
that handles course enrolments and event registration.
Primarily, this component of the system allows students,
through a personalized student-centric interface and
using our secure e-commerce system, to enroll in courses,
purchase materials, and register for special events.
Member/Client institutions, departments or groups can
create profiles, manage instructors, and view registration
information about students that enroll in their courses
or special events. Every user (i.e. student, company
coordinator, administrator and instructor) is provided
with a personalized virtual desktop for profile management
and access to all Web-based services.
Through this facility, administrators are able to manage
students' academic and financial records, manage individual
and group registration profiles, set up special events,
manage proctors, process financial transactions, and
manage exam centres and other event venues. There can
be multiple levels of administrators that can assume
predefined roles or be assigned individual permissions
for various access levels.
In addition, the administrator can set up custom contracts
for products and services available to Client institutions.
Contracts serve a dual purpose in the system:
- As an integral component of the Sales Order Processing
system for e-commerce transactions and accounting
- As an education services agreement to define product
offerings and their associated pricing
System Control Module
At the centre of 724Learning Administrative Studiotm
lies the System Control Module (SCM). Integration of policies
and procedures with business processes is the primary
function of the SCM. It contains all business rules and
logic that are required to drive all the other sub-systems
Administrative Studiotm ties all these
components together into an integrated Web-based learning
and administration system.
- Academic rules pertaining to program and course
completion, including passing marks
- Complete list of grading rules for all assessment
- Product and transaction pricing tables
- Contract terms for all client institutions
The System also incorporates a robust communications component
that sends pre-set notifications to students and allows
the administrator to send mass emails to different groups
The Content Delivery Module of 724learning Delivery Studiotm
manages the delivery of online programs and courses and
provides the student with a number of resources and learning
tools, including a facility that will allow them to create
and store study notes as they proceed through a course.
Navigation of course content has been simplified by representing
the course table of contents in the form of an active
hierarchical directory, thus allowing students to move
through course content in any order that they wish. Since
courses can be taken through a standard Web browser, content
can include any technology that can be incorporated into
Web pages (i.e. DHTML, media files, PDF documents). Moreover,
for student groups enrolled through class-based learning,
the Virtual Course Manager provides the ability for instructors
and students to communicate with each other via email
and threaded discussion boards.

types both formal and informal. Some of the many features
offered include management of :
- Delivery dates and submision dealines
- Assesment weighting, marking and grading management
- Tracking course evaluation per student.

results, group results, and statistical data on assessment
