Whether it’s through integration with your institution VLE/LMS, or via our new multi-featured LearnSci Direct platform, we can help you to connect with learners anywhere in the world.

“A user-friendly and intuitive software platform, with very responsive tech support, which provides great interactive, instructional lab simulations.”

Dr. Sioned Owen, Lecturer In Biochemistry And Pharmacology, University of South Wales

Teaching, outreach, recruitment and more...

Connecting learners has never been more important in university education. Offering a flexible, blended learning curriculum to your students will maximise their engagement and support your busy team. However, this is just one part of the challenge, as many departments continue to run essential outreach initiatives supporting local schools and colleges, as well as the yearly drive to recruit the next cohorts of students to your STEM programmes.

We’ve been listening to our partners and we know how much you value our time-saving solutions which integrate directly with your VLE/LMS. Our Connect partners are already fully embedding our LabSims and Smart Worksheets seamlessly into their Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle and D2L Brightspace learning systems. Flexible course content creation and gradebook integration are hugely valued features of our fully integrated LTI solutions. 

For 2022, we are delighted to significantly extend our platform options to offer you a complete set of delivery solutions to bring you closer to your entire learning network.

"The University of South Wales is extremely pleased to have been given the opportunity to use the LearnSci Direct access facility for delivering some academic courses with Northwest Normal University – our collaborative partner in Lanzhou, China. The direct access platform has enabled us to both live stream interactive content and provide a facility for further learning to enhance the overall student experience. This is an exciting development with Learning Science and will enable further international developments in curriculum delivery."
Dr. Dawn Story, Head of School of Applied Sciences, University of South Wales

We’ve created LearnSci Direct to accelerate all of your learning projects and initiatives - whether on campus, in the local community or on the other side of the world. LearnSci Direct lets you invite anyone to participate in learning and provides the foundation for you to connect with all of your target audiences. It can accelerate your projects in remote learning, outreach, recruitment, widening participation, teacher training and many others.

LearnSci Direct is a fully functional, multi-featured learning platform that is easy to use and highly effective.

The platform includes:

  • Dedicated institution space separated from other users
  • User-friendly course creation tools
  • Single sign-on for fast student access
  • Flexible reporting and analytics
  • Assignable, centralised learning materials
  • Personalised and mobile learning

You now have the option to access our LabSims and Smart Worksheets directly on your own learning platform and through ours. This will open up your projects to any users who don’t have their own login to your VLE/LMS.

The Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Queen’s University Belfast is using LearnSci Direct to deliver LabSims to secondary-level school teachers across the city. The system contributes to the goal of providing new ideas and resources for teaching, and ultimately, to encourage students to pursue further study and careers in STEM areas.

 

LearnSci’s extended platform solutions are easy to use and we’re always available to help out with personalised support whenever you need it. Find out more in our FAQs

Coventry University’s move to an innovative social learning platform required a rethink in how the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences delivered their much-valued LabSim and Smart Worksheet course materials. Academics, librarians and the learning technology team worked with our team to set up access to LearnSci Direct by single sign-on. This has allowed staff to login using their institution email account and then to organise and create the course content and make it available to students.
