The all-new Classroom LMS

For administrators, the new Classroom LMS provides an all-new Dashboard for course analytics, a smoother essay submission, and grading workflow, and advanced LMS homework options including video submission and scoring. Overall, the new design provides a sleek learner experience for desktop and mobile users.

Other features include an integrated Webex® room for webinars and meetings, instant connections for members, unlimited member communications, an advanced resource center, online event hosting, and eCommerce integration for premium or permissions-based content. New iCohere Communities packages start at just $350 /month for a portal site with 100 members.
