SACRAMENTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LearningCart announced today a significant software update of its e-Learning commerce platform. The new release incorporates new features based on the real-world experience of their clients. These updates position LearningCart as one of the most advanced e-commerce solutions for the e-learning industry.
“Over the years, we’ve raised the bar by incorporating new and innovative features that simply aren’t available in other LMS systems. With LearningCart 8 we are excited to continue that legacy, “says Christian Gainsbrugh, President of LearningCart.
Initially launched in 2012, LearningCart provides a full-service platform that is used by a diverse set of clients – from enterprise corporations, to universities, to training organizations-- who are all looking to monetize their educational products. Unlike other Learning Management Systems (LMS), LearningCart provides a comprehensive system with all the tools organizations need to market, sell, and deploy educational products.
“We talk to people all the time that, in order to sell their training products, have had to implement one system for their website, one system for their e-commerce platform, and another LMS system for their training courses,” says Gainsbrugh. “Long term it’s a nightmare to tie all those systems together and it’s very confusing for customers. LearningCart was designed to solve this problem by offering a single unified platform with everything they need.”
Siemens Senior Instructional Design Manager Aaron Bird says, “At the time we were looking, LearningCart was the only tool we found among a pool of about a dozen that could handle both learning management and e-commerce as well as integrate with all of our existing systems. LearningCart is a reliable tool that works exceptionally well.”
Expected to top over $250 billion by 2020, the education technology market continues to grow in revenue and market penetration. Educational technology is no longer just for K-12 and higher education. From professionals looking to gain soft skills, to a tradesperson looking to renew their certification, to a construction worker attending required OSHA training - ongoing education is simply now a requirement for most careers. This type of training is increasingly being sold and delivered online. Compared to traditional learning management systems, LearningCart makes it much easier to engage and market to these types of external non-institutional audiences. LearningCart 8 further expands the already robust feature set by offering even more ways to engage with users - such as the ability to earn/share badges on social media, the ability to build public training profiles, and the ability to compete with other users via an integrated scoreboard
