TechNote: Free Use of BrainHoney

2009 marked the transition from GoCourse to BrainHoney, products that Agilix describes as learning management environments (not necessarily learning management systems, or LMSs). BrainHoney reflects these principles: user-friendly course authoring, facilitated alignment with objectives and state standards, student-performance progress tracking, and easy course management.

I became a fan of Agilix products through work with a higher ed client; now, I get to play with BrainHoney outside of any institution. (I have no financial relationship with Agilix.)

Agilix offers free hosting to anyone who wants to set up a web-based course. Think moodle in terms of access, and then enjoy the Agilix version of support while you experiment with the software.

To register (minimal contact information required) and set up a space (as an individual, without committing your institution), go to http://www.brainhoney.com. BrainHoney will make you a better LMS consumer just by seeing what Agilix programmers have achieved.
