Akuter Management System offers ergonomic and easy to use screens always provided in context and according to the user's preferences, rights and status of progress.

Courses management:
A course is a learning object either developed with Akuter Author or an AICC-SCORM compliant third party. A course, or its manifest files, is located on the server's repository. It will be attached to Akuter Management System for further use within curricula and assignments. A course can be created in advance before it is physically installed and attached to Akuter Enterprise. This is called a course planning. Administrators will determine how to use learning objects parked into the repository. Content upgrades are easy and processed in a transparent way: Learners who are already started will stay with their current version, learners who are not started will be provided with the new version. Version numbers are recorded and Administrators know who did what, making it easy to re-assign refreshers or the complete curriculum's new version.

Curriculum management:
A curriculum is a series of courses managed by a set of rules.

  • Create, modify, activate, or delete a curriculum

  • Choose the assignment type (Pre-assignment or Self-assignments)

  • Add prerequisites to a curriculum
  • Add courses to a curriculum

Curricula management provides the administrator with the ability to define learning objects tailored to the learner or to a group of learners. An administrator, using the rule-based curriculum management, can tailor learning to specific requirements, prerequisites and score to pass for each course and for the whole curriculum. Akuter Management System guides administrators into defining personalized learning, scheduling and curriculum definitions from learning objects for individuals or groups. If set in Self-assigned mode a curriculum can be re-assigned directly by the learner as many times.

Pre-assessments and post-assessments are provided either from prerequisites, quizzes or exams. They can provide suggestions or lock in or out learners. Assessments can be used just to record how people perform from the tracking features without stopping their progression or used as a milestone controlling access to the next step of a curriculum.

User management:
A user is an individual who can access Akuter Enterprise in order to:

  • Take assignments as a learner

  • Manage the system as an Administrator

  • Score exams as a scorer

Configure the software as a system administrator

Akuter's user management interface provides powerful filters and search features to manage thousands of users easily. It provides summary and detailed information as well as statistics and messaging tools.

Group management:
A group is a gathering of learners to allow batch assignment. A learner may belong to more than one group.

  • Create, modify, activate, or delete groups

  • Add, remove learners from groups

  • Assign a curriculum to a group

Pre-Assignments can be made to an individual learner or a group of learners. Pre-assignments will appear on each learner's portal.

Alerts, Messaging and Collaboration:
Alert Services Center is Akuter Enterprise's powerful automated messaging system which is triggered by pre-selected or scheduled events. It alerts users about progress of assignments, status of credits or narrowing deadlines. These event-based and schedule-based alerts and messaging services provide a powerful private collaborative support for learners, administrators and supervisors.

There are 10 categories of standard alerts:

  • New Assignment - notifying that a curriculum has been newly assigned to one or more learners

  • Assignment started - notifying that a learner has started a given assignment

  • Assignment completed - notifying that an assignment has been passed or failed

  • Course completed - notifying that a course has been completed (if no exam), passed or failed (if exam)

  • Score pending - notifying that an exam with essay question(s) needs to be scored

  • New group's member - notifying that a learner has been newly added to a group. This learner will automatically receive the group's assignments and eventually a "New Assignment" alert message will be sent

  • Learner's credit limit - notifying that a learner has reached the alert threshold on his/her learning time limit

  • Deadline - warning that a Learner has reached his/her alert threshold before completing an Assignment

  • New user - notifying that a new user has been created either manually or via an automated process

  • Score available – notifying that an exam with essay question(s) has been scored

More alerts can be added using the AE's plug-in architecture and extensions.

When criteria are met for an alert category and the system administrator has activated this particular alert, a message is generated and sent to the activated recipients. You can decide which recipients will be active for each category of alerts. Alert messages are securely queued until delivery. All messages are server-driven and generated from the Akuter Management System server using the customer's SMTP server. As it is server- generated, recipients cannot reply to an alert message. Links in the body text can be added if needed. Alert Services' recipients use the Supervisor's email account available in the Learner, Group and Curriculum's records and/ or the Default Alert email available on the System Administrator's screens. These fields are generally automatically filled in from a connector linking AE to other applications such as ERP, CRM, HR, etc. However an Administrator can manually enter or edit these fields if needed. If no supervisor email is available in the Learner's records, group's records or curriculum's records, messages are sent to the "Default Alert email" set by the System Administrator. An alert's recipient can be a group of several recipients. Messages are edited in the default language.


EntitiesTop of page †

An entity is a space restricted to a specific audience and has its own administrators. This function allows the creation of several sub-organizations with a single Akuter LMS license. It is particularly useful for giving administrative autonomy to parts of a whole organization or for serving different organizations from the same system. An Entity has its own dedicated virtual space in which content and users are only visible to and managed by an Entity administrator from the same Entity or by a Super administrator.


My CatalogTop of page †

This feature allows to automatically generating course catalogs relevant to each learner profile. Labels are gathered by categories and assigned to curricula and learners.

Examples of labels for a curriculum

Examples of labels for a learner
