A learning management system specifically built for enterprises, eFrontPro is equipped with features that can address all of your skills development and training requirements. eFrontPro employs both online and blended learning to ensure regulatory compliance, improve workforce performance, and align your people’s skills with the organization’s core objectives. The app can be deployed on your server or private cloud.
Armed with a user interface that’s intuitive and easy to use, eFrontPro is mobile-responsive and can be customized to suit your learning needs and reflect branding consistency across the platform. Courses can be created using the content you already have, such as videos, music playlists, photos and other images, PowerPoint presentations, documents, and even content from web sources such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Wikipedia.
eFrontPro’s core features include mobile-responsiveness, customization, course development, blended learning, tracking and reporting functions, communication and collaboration tools, course marketplace, and gamification.
Used by Fujitsu, Honeywell, Autodesk, and other established organizations around the world, eFrontPro is a flexible and feature-rich online learning management platform that aggregates in one solution the processes and tools necessary for a fruitful and enjoyable learning experience. By default, eFrontPro has three user types: administrator, professor, and student. New user types can be added anytime, depending on your need. Administrators can invite other users into eFrontPro, create user segments such as branches and audiences, customize the platform’s appearance, specify gamification points, badges, and levels, set up notifications, among others.
Aside from the ability to quickly build courses, professors can create quizzes or surveys to gauge the effectiveness of the courses they offer. Learners are granted their very own student portals to view and access their assigned or chosen courses, monitor their progress, and keep track of their scores anywhere, anytime, on any device.
Lessons bundled together make up a course. Professors set up the timing and manner in which students gain access to the lessons, including the certifications awarded to them after course completion. eFrontPro lets you put into good use any content you already have so you don’t have to create your materials from scratch. These can include slideshows, worksheets, presentations, documents, videos, images, charts, graphs, PDFs, and so on.
eFrontPro also functions as a centralized repository where you can upload, store, and retrieve your files and course materials. When adding a new course, you’ll be asked to name and categorize it, identify the course type (online learning versus blended learning), and provide a short description. You may also include a course code for easier identification and retrieval, select the course’s language settings, indicate how many days the course will be available, and select the certification’s template from a dropdown menu.
Units, tests, and surveys can be added to your content, and previously exported eFrontPro courses can be imported back into the platform. You can then select who the users of the course will be by ticking the check box corresponding to their names.
eFrontPro supports two learning delivery types: online learning and blended learning. Online learning is when courses are exclusively accessible online, and blended learning is a combination of online lessons and face-to-face classroom-type learning. For students who can’t make it to a physical location to attend classes, eLearning is the perfect setup. Depending on the availability of the courses, lessons can be taken at the learner’s pace or as scheduled. Courses can also be made available offline.
Blended learning, otherwise known as mixed or hybrid learning, leverages the best of both worlds. This means discussions can be done in a classroom setting, and supplemental coursework can be accessed online. eFrontPro is equipped with tools such as videoconferencing, discussions, personal messaging, collaborative content building, and calendar to facilitate communication and collaboration between instructors and learners. Third-party chat tools like Zopim can be integrated into the system.
The software also offers a gamification engine that uses points, badges, levels, and leaderboards to promote engagement and a healthy dose of competition among your students.
Aside from an audit trail that presents a timeline of all user actions within the system and details everything that happened to whom and when, eFrontPro employs role-based access protocols where access credentials granted to users are based on their designations within the organization. Everything within the system is archived instead of deleted, so accidental deletion of users or courses can instantly be reversed.
Filters are likewise used to protect against attacks such as CSRF, XSS, SQL injection, and others. eFrontPro uses security features such as IP blacklisting, custom password matching, and password expirations to prevent privilege escalation and unauthorized access.
eFrontPro comes with a highly customizable user framework. You can use your company’s logo across the platform, as well as personalize the theme, layout, and functionality of the app. You can create pages and specify the type of content on each of those pages. If you have programming skills, you may access the software’s source code and tweak it to your advantage.
The site builder allows you to create web pages even without the help of CMS platforms like WordPress or Drupal. It enables you to promote courses on the main page, include "About Us" and "Contact" pages, even an FAQ page to your eLearning portal. You may also use the plugin API to extend the system as you see fit.
eFrontPro’s user interface is responsive and automatically adjusts to fit any screen, be it a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. The app works well with all modern browsers.
As opposed to macro learning, which are courses involving content-heavy lessons, eFrontPro courses can be taken in short bursts, also known as micro learning, which is generally ideal for mobile browsing. Micro learning examples include short instructional videos, flashcard lessons to aid with memorization, and pieces of trivia or “word of the day” nuggets sent via email or other forms of messaging.
Aside from its REST API that allows you to connect third-party systems, eFrontPro readily integrates with Facebook for social media, WordPress for content management, WebEx and BigBlueButton for videoconferencing, and OpenSesame, an eLearning marketplace. You can also implement single sign-on (SSO) using SAML 2.0, LDAP or Active Directory, or using the available REST or plugin APIs.
eFrontPro can be purchased as an annual subscription. More details can be obtained from eFront's sales team. Free trials are available, no credit card information required.

Catherine Donges, MsED, MFA
I work as a teacher in an agency that has nine separate facilities that serve the needs of court-place, adjudicated youth. As part of my MFA internship experience, I wanted to develop an online course in creative writing so that I could teach not only my students, but other students in my agency as well. While previous students in the MFA program at Wilkes University had considered creating an online course, they all abandoned the idea as too difficult or costly. eFront made my project a reality! I will be singing eFront's praises to others at my university,to the creative writing community at large, and to anyone else who might be interested in creating online courses as well. Struggling writers are always looking for a way to supplement their writing lives, and efront allows for all sorts of magnificent possibilities. Thank you eFront!
Pros: Easy to use interface-I had no prior computer programing skills and only a little instruction on how to get started. Features comparable with more highly recognized commercial platforms.
Cons: Some of the features didn't meet my specific needs. I couldn't figure out how to use the grade book feature.
