The New Jersey School Boards Association is a federation of boards of education that provides training, advocacy and support to advance public education and the achievement of all students through effective governance. They offer a range of training to members, which, depending on the course, could attract numbers of people ranging from hundreds to thousands. With this in mind, they needed to change to an LMS that could take care of their needs.
NJSBA currently has a member base of 5,000 and offers a mix of eLearning and traditional classroom education programs. The organisation had been very limited in what they could do in their online courses with the Learning Management System they had in place. They decided that this could not continue and that a more comprehensive LMS was needed.
Why Choose TopClass?
The first thing that the NJSBA knew they wanted was to find a Personify Partner. After finding a list of Personify Partners, the next step was to find the product that suited their needs. The following were some of the factors that were most important in making the decision for choosing TopClass:
- Personify360 and its speed of Integration – When NJSBA compared the time of implementation, TopClass was weeks, compared to months. TopClass has a fully integrated product bridge that enables a smooth and automatic two-way transfer of key information from one system to the other. It makes navigation between from your website to TopClass seamless with the Personify Single Sign-On.
- Reporting was important – Reporting is an important way for NJSBA to gauge the success of their members throughout their courses. The reporting feature of TopClass is an extensive tool that offers accurate, timely data, reporting and dashboards that offer fresh insights on the areas of your education program that are performing well and not so well.
- No modification to their courses – NJSBA can easily upload all of their courses in a few clicks because TopClass is SCORM and AICC-compliant. The secure and fast uploading of courses can be chosen from a wide variety of publisher sources. This saves them a lot of time and effort and makes the whole transition easier for them.
“TopClass was capable of doing everything we wanted in the demo we received, as well as giving us the potential option of doing more in the future. The one thing that made TopClass really stand out has been the services and support team behind it. They have been brilliant and any requirement we have had has been responded to immediately.”
