We think the market of LMSs and MOOCs is crowded because many think that if you build a good enough course, students will learn. In our view though, learning is a fundamentally goal-oriented social endeavor where -- with the right motivation, mentoring, coaching and community -- a decent library and internet connection are enough for most students to learn. So the focus of our platform is primarily on outcomes and learning relationships.
That being said, our customers need good, simple tools with which to build classes. So that's what we've developed. With an emphasis on simplicity, Fidelis's learning app authoring tools are template-based and take only 2-3 minutes to get started building.
We call courses on Fidelis's platform learning apps to signify that they don't have to be traditional classes. They can be anything from a 5 minute tutorial to a 500 hour degree. Most customers build learning apps to cover specific topics in depth, then modularly assemble apps into courses and learning plans.
