I have moved all my courses to the Kannu LMS, and for good reasons!

Pros

From the creation of the course to the final student evaluations, this platform helps me to help my students.

As an experienced educator, I can confidently say that this is the best LMS system I have ever used.

2017-10-13

Efficient communication with students, effective management of teaching administration, grading and student feedback support.

Pros

An outstanding feature is the integration with auto-grading which gives students immediate feedback on the assignments they submit both with marks and with comments that contribute to learning outcomes.

Cons

A good interface for teachers to customise the auto grading and to leverage on new capabilities of A.I. for support would be a extremely valuable.

Kannu worked great for me and my students in a course last year.

2017-05-18

Pros

Kannu is elegant, attractive, and robust, and features strong support for media, assessment, and communication

Cons

Occasionally the system is slow, when sorting through thousands of students in an online course, but is much more responsive with the smaller classes we have on campus.

(Higher Education company, 201-500 employees)

Impressed with the contemporary design, easy navigation, and built-in instructional features.

2017-10-25

It allowed us to grow our eLearning program.

Pros

Not only is my own instructional content in the system, but students can upload a variety of coursework.

Cons

I would like to see a more robust ePortfolio system and more course analytics for administrators to pull out usage data.

The assessment piece is not quite to the level of Blackboard yet.

Clean, focused, intuitive

2017-11-15

It enabled me to teach to a great number of students around the world with ease.

Pros

Also, having a fully functional learning environment on mobile devices is essential and Kannu gets it right.

Cons

If I'm being picky, the discussions could feature more options for organizing or sorting the relevant comments.

Kannu is elegant, flexible and time-saving

2017-06-06

saved hundreds of hours of time.

Pros

Having everything related to my course in one environment is key.

Cons

Its improving constantly, which is great. And this comes with the territory of a web software that grows with technology, but it is something to be aware of: as a user, I need to be on top of new developments.

Perfect for getting an online class off the ground quickly.

2017-10-14

Pros

More than the other products out there it emphasizes the communal nature of learning and takes pains to produce a social learning environment online.

Cons

I wish their was a lightweight version for managing traditional classes so i could offer students a seamless experience.

Clean and Clear!

2017-06-13

Successfully created my first online course!

Pros

This platform helped me to re-think and re-organize my course in a way that was decidedly better for my students without making me feel as though I had to conform to a norm, dumb down, or surrender any of the artistic nature of the course.

Cons

The little IVQ indicators in the videos seemed to disappear on me once but was fine after refreshing the browser.

Kannu adds self-learning to our university courses

2017-11-23

Pros

We needed a way for our in-person university students to self-learn and self-serve before and after our courses - they had pre-work and resources to prep before, and competitions to submit to afterward.

Cons

Nothing I dislike - but we'd love to use it to run student competitions with judging and feedback.

Responsive Learning Management System Site and Staff

2016-08-17

There is a learning curve however and we would like more on-boarding videos for our students but I believe they will provide that as development continues.

Pros

Friendly and user friendly design. Broad functionality.

Cons

There are features that we don't need and we would like to be able to turn off. That probably can be accomplished through development as they have a staff that works with you but we have not requested too much customization as the portal works for us well as is.

We've used the Kannu platform to host our online school

2017-08-03

It enabled us to get our online school up and running quickly.

Pros

It's quick and easy to set up a course. The built in tools mean that there's very little need for external plugins such as Camtasia.

Cons

Cloning a course for an intake can be a little fiddly, and it's not possible to set Session Release dates relative to the course start - they all have to be adjusted manually

Most powerful and versatile white-label experience

2016-08-12

The platform accommodates a lot of different file types and so has a much wider range of assignment/assessment types.

Pros

- The design - Look / feel - Usability - Aesthetic - Accommodates creative assignments - Supports community development

Cons

Nothing, because I can't find anything better. Without building your own LMS this is the best one out there for accommodating unusual trainings.

aesthetics matters; a thoughtfully designed and elegant LMS (at last)

2017-10-12

Pros

Having long struggled with Coursework (tolerable) and Canvas (yikes), working with Kannu has been a breath of fresh air: 1) it doesn't feel like an endless hodge-podge of obligatory features checked off by some corporate committee, but a purposeful integration designed by educators; 2) the portfolio feature is simply excellent, particularly for courses with creative projects.

MDST project making use of Kannu

2017-02-03

We have used Kannu to set up a safe shared place for schools, their teachers and students. We have been using kannu with the teachers for just over a year and we have found where teachers make the time to engage with the platform, upload sessions and keep a clear ongoing record of their work that the platform facilitates this.

Pros

Easy to manage and develop.

Cons

Hard for teachers to navigate with their students.

Response from Kadenze


Hi Vicky!

We actually added a portfolio feature early last year. If you head to your profile (hit your user icon in the top right), you can set up your Portfolio there. You can upload any media you like, and it'll all get stored in a personal library on the system so you can add/remove at will.

Kannu is THE LMS for the future of Digital Arts education.

2017-10-12

Pros

I would strongly recommend it as the primary LMS for any and all courses at the intersection of art and tech.

Cons

I am curious about the cost per user. It seems as if it was a little on the pricey side when our institution first looked into it as a replacement for our current LMS. I suspect, though, that the many new features that have been developed in Kannu of late help to define its value.

I use this LMS for all aspects of my classes from grading to students collaborations.

2017-05-17

Pros

Since using I have found that students have access to each other's question which they are free to answer Teaching=learning.

Cons

Set up time takes a bit but once it's setup it works great.

Ali Akbar College of Music Uses Kannu

2016-08-18

This is the first time we have used a product to manage our online class webinars, and we are enjoying the simplicity of the final product that our students interact with.

Pros

Our students are happy with it, and it has made the handling of our class webinars neat and efficient.

Cons

When we first started, back in February 2016, there were a few bugs in the system that needed to be worked out. However, Kannu has just launched, so I wasn't surprised by it. 7 months later, many positive changes have taken place and things have evened out for us.

The future of higher education, professional training, and online learning

2016-08-15

.¿ Did I mention that we¿re a small non-profit - not a Fortune 500 company or a major University? My students have found their courseware ¿refreshing and pleasant to use.¿ The product design is clean and intuitive for both viewing and completing assignments.

Pros

Interface, support, and team behind the product

Cons

Analytics is present but isn't quite up to what you'd get from a Google Analytics type integration.
