XanEdu to Unveil New Generation of the Nimble Mobile Learning Platform at Association for Talent Development 2016 International Conference

ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- XanEdu Inc., a leading provider of learning technology solutions, will introduce the next generation of Nimble, its Mobile Learning Platform for the corporate learning & development market, at the Association for Talent Development 2016 International Conference in Denver, Colorado on May 23rd.

For 17 years, XanEdu has innovated and delivered web-based solutions that help educators and learning professionals deliver tailored content via an award-winning mobile experience. 

The Nimble Mobile Learning Platform

The cloud-based Nimble Mobile Learning Platform allows learning and development professionals, managers, publishers, professional associations and anyone with a training-related need to easily deploy existing training content via mobile and digital devices. By employing a cloud-based architecture, Nimble provides an easy, secure, quick-to-deploy mobile learning platform that allows companies to evolve their current learning materials to engaging and measurable mobile distribution without the concerns of lengthy learning and implementation curves or technical overhead.

Using the Nimble platform, administrators simply upload their existing training materials from familiar sources such as Word, PowerPoint, and PDFs to their secure, cloud-based libraries where they can be mixed into tailored collections to suit virtually any learning need. No re-authoring of materials is necessary.

Learners receive an award-winning mobile experience via native iOS and Android apps which offer robust personalization and collaboration features. Materials are also accessible from virtually any digital device via Nimble's cloud reader. For companies who wish to maintain the benefits of their current printed materials distribution while expanding access with digital/mobile delivery, printing can be enabled via Nimble's direct integration with FedEx Office.

Nimble 2.0: New Assessment and Analytics Functionality

With the Nimble 2.0 release, XanEdu is adding a powerful learner assessment engine as well as content mastery and engagement analytics. Powered by Learnosity, Nimble's new assessment engine will allow administrators to customize 50 question types without the need for sophisticated technical expertise. Learner comprehension and mastery of training material can be monitored via interactive dashboards and reports.

In addition to new assessment functionality, Nimble 2.0 also provides content analytics which allows administrators to see on what devices learners are accessing content, what pieces of content are receiving the most engagement, how much time learners spend engaging with content and more. Combined with assessment analytics, these new metrics allow administrators and managers to gain early insight into employee comprehension and performance challenges.

Nimble's performance-first design is built to increase business unit adoption and learner satisfaction while minimizing deployment time and the time from learning to business impacts. Nimble achieves this through a focus on augmenting existing learning materials with powerful new functionality, setting it apart from other frustrating platforms that bury content in a maze of firewalls and intranets or require inefficient re-authoring.

"Nimble 2.0 is a direct answer to needs we have heard across the continuum of SMBs to Fortune companies. For many firms, knowledge application and retention, recruiting and sales are all impacted by inadequate solutions unable to solve the challenges of a mobile workforce.  Employees are frustrated by a lack of access and managers are frustrated by a lack of metrics," says Brett Costello, Chief Operating Officer of XanEdu, Inc.

"What they have been searching for is an elegant solution that allows them to easily leverage existing training content with the freedom to deploy that content to virtually any mobile or digital device. Pair that with our Nimble 2.0 assessment, analytics and reporting capabilities and our FedEx Office printing integration and organizations finally have a complete solution that meets the expectations for mobile and traditional training."
