ALISON Launches Free Learning Management

GALWAY, Ireland (February 23, 2009) --, the free online learning website, today announced it has made learning management free for groups of learners wishing to undertake their comprehensive Web-based IT skills course ALISON ABC IT. ALISON ABC IT is fast becoming the most popular global IT skills certification. It includes comprehensive training on the Internet, key desktop applications like Word and Excel as well as the full range of practical IT skills, including touch typing and the efficient use of Web-based e-mail. It is also prefaced by a beginner’s guide to a personal computer, and so is ideal for learners who have no IT experience.

An ALISON Manager learner group offers training managers and small businesses the facility to monitor and manage a group of ABC IT learners online. A Learning Management System (LMS) is a necessary tool to manage learners, roles, courses, and to generate reports, provide assessments, testing and feedback. In many cases access to LMS software can cost thousands of euro, therefore this new service from Alison is a highly valuable free resource.

Commenting on the launch Alison CEO Mike Feerick said: “Learner groups on Alison are quick and easy to set up and are very simple to use. You can review how far learners have progressed, what they have got right, where they have gone wrong, how much time they’ve spent learning, and whether they have progressed far enough to be awarded their Certificates of Completion.”

Already providing free training for over 250,000 registered users worldwide, ALISON is dedicated to bringing free life and business skills to learners everywhere. The company intends to extend this free learning management functionality to all of its online courses, including Alison-owned content and other high-quality learning produced by third-parties such as schools, governments and private businesses.

Mike Feerick added:

“Part of our mission is to further enable teachers and trainers everywhere by providing access to better and more varied online learning tools. We hope that this exciting release will assist all those who share our mission of making available free high-quality interactive learning.”
