VenU Launches New Website to Promote New Responsive LMS Design

linkedin-new websiteMobile access is beginning to dominate the Internet! It has never been more important to understand the need for responsive design when it comes to your elearning initiative. Over the past few years, as mobile usage has continued to increase, a typical solution has been to have separate sites with the same content – one for desktop viewing and one for mobile devices. However, through technological advances it has now become reality for a single site to accommodate all types of users and provide an optimal viewing experience regardless of what type of device they are using.

Today VenU™ released its new corporate website to announce the latest version of its LMS – VenU Connect™.  Sporting a new “mobile first” responsive design, advanced theming and branding tools, powerful web services, advanced reporting capabilities, social networking and gamification tools – VenU Connect™ incorporates the latest technologies in eLearning. With user experience a top priority, we understand that elearning initiatives are meant to engage and interact with users in a way that eliminates the hassles of typical compatibility issues while providing an innovative and enjoyable experience.

Check out our new website for an in-depth look at what elearning should and can be!

The “User Experience”


“Full-featured” and “user-friendly” are not mutually exclusive… and “exceptional customer service” is not optional.

“User Experience” is much more than just a catch phrase- especially when it comes to eLearning. Today’s users expect more. In fact, they demand an easy-to-use, highly visual, and extremely intuitive learning environment coupled with concise, meaningful, and compelling content – delivered anytime, anywhere, on any device.

But, the user experience doesn’t just stop there… users expect exceptional customer service to be part of the overall experience, and to have their support needs responded to in a highly competent, professional, and timely manner.

We provide our clients with an eLearning platform that, albeit powerful, is not confusing and riddled with programmer interfaces. Our Learning Management System is intuitive and easy-to-use from front to back.

A few of our LMS’s major capabilities include:

  • The obvious… eLearning courseware and content management functionality
  • Classroom management tools and logistics support
  • Calendaring tools and live event management
  • Certification and curricula management tools
  • Full-blown ecommerce capabilities, with vouchers, refunds, discount codes, promo codes and management tools
  • Built-in social media and communication tools
  • Web Services/API for integration with third-party applications and systems
  • Comprehensive online reporting and dashboards
  • Custom branding and co-branding
  • And, about a thousand other capabilities…

Our clients also expect us to possess a thorough knowledge of their business objectives and to be able to propose and provide solutions to address their eLearning initiatives and business requirements. We underpin all of this with ironclad security (ISO 27001 Certified), a commitment to quality, unlimited scalability, unwavering reliability, and access to the latest technology, all at a reasonable price…and we do it every day for over 1 million users worldwide.

Want to see how? Contact us today!

Amazing Web Services!

gearsThe rise of fast, efficient web services has created the ability for companies to securely link data between web applications, enabling fundamental business practices to be seamlessly synchronized. Here are two brief scenarios where web services can solve a critical business problem.

Scenario 1: Imagine using a central online database for reporting purposes and you wish to include valuable information, collected by the VenU eLearning platform, regarding users’ course completions. The VenU eLearning platform provides a set of tools, a wealth of documentation and practical examples, which allow you to build a connection file that can be added to your central database. This allows data to be synced on demand.

Scenario 2: You would like users to have the ability to connect directly to external applications from within the VenU eLearning platform. In this case, the user could simply follow a link to the desired sign in page and the web service connection crafted with our powerful API, would automatically authenticate the user’s identity.

It’s fast, it’s secure, and it’s always available. VenU’s web services offer expansive flexibility in many business processes.
