iSAMS launches iUniversity, a dedicated platform for on-demand learning
iSAMS has announced the launch of a dedicated platform for on-demand learning aimed at its 500,000+ daily users.
In 2005, iSAMS launched the first version of the iSAMS MIS – the first and only web-based MIS on the market. iSAMS has since developed to be as flexible as possible for users by enabling them to access the system from home or via a mobile device. The iSAMS team then set a new goal to offer easy access to learning resources, empowering users to learn and refresh their skills at their convenience.
iSAMS has now announced the launch of iUniversity. iUniversity gives all iSAMS users instant access to interactive training courses on a range of topics wherever they are, at a time convenient to them.
Launching with seven free courses covering the basics of iSAMS, iUniversity will grow into a comprehensive resource centre for users’ online training needs. Whether users are brand new to iSAMS or in need of a refresher course after the summer break, iUniversity provides engaging content to help explore the iSAMS desktop, navigate and personalise the dashboard and module bar, discover the most useful iSAMS wizards and use iSAMS on the go with the iTeacher app.
