Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2015/01/22 - Melbourne-based educational specialists today unveils their premium all-in-one virtual learning environment, Circulate, to help thousands of Australian RTOs simplify their workflow and revolutionise teaching - Circulus.com.au.
Circulus Education today announced the official release of Circulate, their highly anticipated all-in-one learning management system (LMS) that is built specifically for the vocational education and training (VET) market in Australia.
The Circulate LMS is intended to enable Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) to improve their teaching and operational efficiency significantly, reducing human errors and time wasted on non-value-adding tasks. Circulate offers both a virtual learning environment and an automated workflow management system in one elegant, easy-to-use piece of software. It is said to integrate seamlessly with student management systems such as VETtrak and Axcelerate, allowing student data to be processed quicker and with better accuracy.
“There is nothing like it. We couldn’t find any existing LMS that solves the laborious, compliance-heavy process of RTOs in an intuitive, holistic manner; so we set out to build one from scratch.” said Caroline Brock, Managing Director of Circulus Education. “It will be a big step forward to transform Australian vocational institutions into paperless, innovative entities.”
Circulate is a cloud-powered learning management system that connects all different parts of an RTO, enabling training providers to not only offer an engaging and collaborative learning experience but also take control of their workflow. No more time wasted correcting human errors and data duplications, now you can leave it to the system. Instant notifications are pushed out automatically to the right person in charge, based on a student lifecycle from expression of interest through to completion.
Circulate allows multi-qualification courses to be created, competencies to be deemed and assessed, trainers assigned, and attendance taken electronically. In addition, the cutting-edge LMS also provides sophisticated data analytics and customised reports to improve business performance making audit time less stressful than ever.
“The current solutions on the market are built to manage data, but data is not the problem. Australian RTOs require competency-mapped, intuitive automation of the entire process” said Caroline Brock. “Circulate is specifically designed to keep vocational providers compliant and to free up their time so they can focus on building the business.”
“It’s smart, beautifully designed, easy to use, and it can cut your operational costs down by approximately 25-30%. We are seeing a lot of interest from the market for this LMS.”
Circulate has already been adopted by three RTOs in Victoria, with many more said to anticipate its official release.
