Linxus helps students maximize the value of their education by teaching them skills that are essential, yet outside the scope of regular classroom instruction. Besides the intrinsic benefits that come from learning how to manage your time or study effectively, Linxus is an extremely robust and flexible software package that is very cost effective. Scroll down for more information on each one of its many benefits.
When Linxus is delivered as stand-alone eLearning, it allows users to digest material at their own pace rather than the pace of students who may need additional instruction. Working at their own pace allows students to skip modules they don’t need, retake the ones they do, or reflect on more difficult material and relate it to existing knowledge, which is important for comprehension and retrieval.
FREEDOM TO FAIL
Learning is about making mistakes and correcting them, but we all know that failing can be scary. When taken online, Linxus enables students to repeat and explore the material without the spotlight of a classroom setting. Within the courses, Linxus provides feedback that enables students to take chances so they can understand the material better.
Linxus combines the latest instructional design methodologies and multimedia principles to create an immersive learning environment that leads to higher levels of cognitive engagement and thus higher levels of retention. Linxus provides games, knowledge checks, and strategies that help students better retain information. Research shows that students who are regularly engaged perform better, but don’t just take our word for it. Try it!
Linxus courses can be easily adapted to fit your needs. Linxus can be scheduled when you want and where you want—during regular class time, in educational technology classes, or as an assignment outside of class to be completed at the student’s own pace. You can also distribute Linxus as stand-alone eLearning or part of a blended learning strategy; in small, bite sized chunks or as entire chapters. How you decide to use Linxus is entirely up to you!
4 COURSE SUITE
When you purchase Linxus, you get four courses with a total of sixteen chapters all in one complete package. Topics include organization, tracking assignments, time management, setting goals, techniques for studying effectively, test taking strategies, dealing with stress, character development, bullying, and problem solving and critical thinking. You get a complete media rich curriculum including assessments all in one suite!
Linxus can run on Apple®, PC, Android, or your iPad. Having the ability to download and run Linxus on virtually any operating system gives you the flexibility to take courses on any smart phone, computer, or tablet.
Managing the courseware can’t get any easier. With most learning management systems there is a steep learning curve that requires you to create your own courses or learn another new software package. Linxus strips away the cumbersome elements of the typical LMS leaving you with a simple and convenient way to manage your courses.
With all of the features and benefits Linxus provides, it is a great value when you compare it to other programs or even the cost of most text books. Starting at $19.99 per student, where else can you provide instruction on life skills such as time management, goal setting, techniques for studying effectively, test taking strategies, dealing with stress, character development, bullying, and problem solving and critical thinking?

It can also empower users to help others while keeping everyone connected to the subject matter.
