aNewSpring overview

What is aNewSpring?

aNewSpring is a blended learning platform that enables training providers to deliver engaging and effective learning products to professionals. Users can create and curate diverse learning journeys that adapt to each unique individual, helping them to learn smarter and perform better. All courses created with aNewSpring are instantly accessible via mobile and can be delivered under several brands.

Users can develop course content using aNewSpring’s online editor to create a variety of learning activities including lessons, assignments, knowledge tests, assessments, and surveys. The Plus-editor tool allows users to add additional content such as images, slideshare presentations, HTML, Flash elements, videos and more. All learning content and courses are entirely managed online, with a flexible structure that allows users to re-use and update content centrally for all courses without duplication. aNewSpring’s interface allows training providers to create diverse question types and students can hand in assignments online. Statistics show the progress and results of learners, and a periodic summary is sent to the trainer automatically to see if extra instruction is required or if a course needs adjustment.

The adaptive learning algorithm in aNewSpring adapts courses to the learner by automatically addressing the subjects that require training, and offering new course content based on goals, or the individual scoring of the course objectives. Learners are able to share, give feedback and discuss training using social learning features such as messaging and discussion boards directly within the platform. aNewSpring’s's MemoTrainer tool helps students retain the newly learned knowledge through spaced repetition schemes based on the Herman Ebbinghaus forgetting curve. MemoTrainer is also available to students as a free mobile app for iOS and Android.

Training providers can connect aNewSpring with external platforms and systems using the API, and can create multiple catalogs to serve a variety of clients. The catalog feature also allows users to sell courses online, and visitors can pay to get access to courses immediately through a range of online payment methods thanks to the Buckaroo add-on.

aNewSpring gives our business the opportunity to be in full control of our blended learning programs. This makes us flexible in the market and makes it possible to develop new programs without putting in a big investment on forehand. Plus I personally really enjoy the spirit of the company. They really do love learning - just like I do!

Pros
It is very flexible and easy for me to use as a developer / trainer. With the support from their helpdesk I'm able to continue quick with using the software. My end users give me compliments for the look and feel of the program!

Cons
Some features are complicated to use for the first time. Because I don't use all features often sometimes it takes extra time to re-learn them. But again, support is never far away. Plus the technical wonder people at aNewSpring are working on improving their software all the time and are very open for my suggestions on improvement.

Probably the most awesome LMS ever

Difficult to use the tool at first, but once you get the hang of it, there isn't a better tool out there.

Pros
Transparency and helpfulness. The employees are extremely friendly and will help you out with everything. The platform isn't very user-friendly, but the amount of content to help you out is terrific. Once you get the hang of the platform, it's extremely effective. And last but not least: the costs. I did a thorough competitor analysis and A New Spring is probably one of the cheapest tools out there. With all that in mind, A New Spring is an extremely valuable LMS and I highly recommend it to everyone.

Cons
The user interface isn't very friendly. There's a lot that you can do, but it's hard to figure out all the possibilities. That's why I needed quite a couple of chats with the support team and quite a lot of time with the support wiki's.

I work for almost 5 years with aNewSpring and can call myself a heavy user ;-).

Pros
When you start using aNewSpring it is very easy to create content and make templates. The software is very user friendly. You have a lot of options to make the content look attractive and there are a lot of integrations with other software as Google Docs, Office Viewer, YouTube/Vimeo. But more important, it is also an easy en friendly platform for our curstomers.

Cons
Is is important to think thoroughly in advance about the structure of the content libraries. You cannot move content parts from one library to another.

Work with aNewSpring for four years now. Because of their amazing and affordable platform I'm able to build the learning journeys that inspire my learners.

Pros
The platform has a lot of possibilities when it comes to learning interventions. It's easy to design a learning journey that looks great on every device and includes video, SCORM, hotspots or exercises to help learners to reach their goals. And if I need help, I can always reach out to their customer service who will help me to find the best solutions for me and my customers.

Cons
It took some time to properly understand the structure of the platform. Fortunately, there are improvements made in the area of usability.
