Mindflash is intended to make creating an online course easy. The user can upload their existing files, which can include Word, PDF, video or Power Point files. Mindflash automatically collects the files and converts them into a comprehensive course that can be accessed by a trainee through the internet. The user can add as many files as they like to their presentation. Mindflash also allows the user to reposition the files so the course moves along in the right order. Users can invite trainees to make sure that the right people access their course. Mindflash also provides evaluation tools that allow users to set up quizzes to make sure that the trainee understood the course content. Quiz options include multiple choice, true and false, order steps and other options. Mindflash also automatically reviews and grades the quizzes and supplies the user with real time performance tracking. Automated notifications can be sent to remind trainees that their course is ready. The application also analyzes data for the user and presents it in neat, readable charts. Users can collaborate on courses by sharing them with colleagues using Mindflash collaboration tools.Show more screenshots »
