MATRIX offers instructor-led, blended, self-paced, and micro learning courses to match different training styles. Instructional designers can further make their courses more interactive by using gamification features such as points and badges meant to encourage productivity inside the organization. Or even better, they can rely on the rules engine that automates different types of actions at a course, learning path, group, and whole platform level. Core to the app are the e-commerce features that give organizations all the necessary tools and payment gateways to sell their online courses to a wider audience and build a reputable brand presence.
MATRIX offers a variety of communication tools to keep instructors and learners connected, from chat and a color-coded calendar to wikis, blogs, chat rooms, and forums. Instructors can further group employees into public or private groups, even teams to run reports and automate specific actions. In return, learners can connect with each other as friends and chat online. On the web-conferencing end, MATRIX makes it possible to reach a wider audience with MS Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, WebEx, GoToMeeting, GoToTraining, and GoToWebinar.
Tracking and reporting
Tracking in MATRIX is primarily done through a mastery grid, where instructors can evaluate how well employees and learners understand a particular course or assignment on a competency basis. In terms of reports, you can run built-in reports for essential data such as assessments, grades, course completion, or you can select a variety of fields, filtering options, and chart outputs to create customized reports to be dragged and dropped inside your dashboard as ad-hoc widgets.

What is special about MATRIX LMS?
MATRIX makes it easy to piece together different learning resources to create a coherent learning path. For example, instructors can start the path with an introduction, followed by a couple of mandatory courses, and finish with a quiz tied to competencies. Learners, in return, can see their progress towards them. Further on, MATRIX recommends courses automatically based on the learner’s goals, which can be tied to the desired job title or set of competencies. An integration with Amazon Alexa is also available for users to access information via voice.
MATRIX is an all-in-one learning management system that works for both training organizations and companies with internal employee compliance. The platform’s ease of customization, from the company’s portal to its dashboards, makes it a popular choice for training companies that want a cost-effective, yet robust platform at the same time. The core – competency-based learning, automation, and e-commerce – together with the iOS and Android mobile apps that replicate the full web experience, support each instructor’s and learner’s career path.
