In this edition of the TOPYX® Topics newsletter, we are pleased to announce that TOPYX continues to be shortlisted for awards, taking pole position as one of the eLearning industry leaders.
TOPYX, recognized as the complete software-as-a-service (SaaS) social LMS solution, engages learners and provides collaborative learning environments for businesses, associations, academic departments and eCommerce needs of any sized organization.
“It’s been a truly exceptional year with nearly 250 entries from all over the world. The standard was once again exceptional and demonstrates the enormous scope of ideas and practices that eLearning can cover. Just making the shortlist is a major achievement,” cited e.learning age.
“We continue to be humbled by the industry’s recognition around the world of TOPYX as a leading social learning management system platform. We understand hours were used by the judges to shortlist for the e.learning age awards and thank each of them for their consideration. With TOPYX being acknowledged as one of the best uses of social media in learning, the shortlist recognition by the e.learning age award reinforces our strategy and design to significantly enhance the learner’s engagement through leveraging social learning tools we integrate in the social learning management system environment of TOPYX,” stated Alfred R. Novas, Chief Executive Officer of Interactyx Limited.
“The most exciting trend in learning management systems today is the integration of social learning features, according to a recent BrandonHall Group survey. When coupled with one of the most compelling value propositions in the industry that TOPYX delivers, we continue to experience an incredible response from businesses and associations seeking secure, easy-to-use and affordable social eLearning solutions,” concluded Novas.
TOPYX Bolt is seeing remarkable uptake as customers that already have an LMS look to add social features. TOPYX Bolt delivers the same award-winning social learning resources as the TOPYX social LMS, except it “bolts on” to an existing LMS infrastructure and facilitates enhanced social and informal learning throughout the enterprise. Learners can now have access to a series of social learning features, such as forums, chat, blogs, shoutboxes, polls and many other tools to be used for collaborative learning in (private or public) subject, course and content communities.
TOPYX Bolt is designed to be an affordable, subscription based and easy to implement solution, which extends an enterprise’s learning and development delivery model with collaboration tools geared to further engaging the learner.

Our latest Infographic comes from Guy Kawasaki at Alltop – The big social-media question of 2011 is – Should I start using Google+? You can simplify the issues down to one question: Are your interests as important as your friends?
If they are, Google+ provides at great way to interact with a range of people from pundits to photographers. You’ll find that people on Google+ are much more interactive than on Twitter or Facebook. If this dichotomy is too simple, Guy has created a decision tree to help you through the selection process of using Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
Social media opens up all new avenues of communication for college students, their classmates and their professors. This new layer of communication also raises questions about appropriate boundaries, such as whether students and teachers can connect online as “friends.”The state of Missouri recently took a stand, declaring Facebook friendships between students and teachers illegal. But that shouldn’t discourage the opportunities presented by social media in the classroom.
