Ivy is built with a flexible course player, a course builder, and a customized analytics layer all bundled up to create the most powerful technical publishing platform.

The Course Player

The Course Player is the picture frame for your content. It makes all your content and challenges look great and easy to use. It supports everything from long-form content to interactive code challenges. The Course Player helps you communicate clearly, skip the setup, and match your brand and vision.

Communicate Clearly

The Course Player is built around the idea of long-form content. It supports videos, images, code blocks, and a challenge area. Inside of the challenge area are several different task types such as multiple choice, image hot spots, single-line and multiple-line code challenges. This is easily the greatest feature about the Ivy player: distraction-free, long-form communication.

Skip the Setup

Most current e-learning platforms rely heavily on the user to set up their own development suite properly. With Ivy, users write and test code right within their own browser without any need for setup. This practically erradicates the margin of error. This is modern learning at its finest.

Match Your Brand & Vision

If your business has a specific and well-known brand, Ivy makes it easy to match your brand without hindering the powerful functionality of the player. This reduces the chance of confusing your user while simultaneously improving the loyalty of your favorite users.

The Course Builder

The Course Builder is at the heart of Ivy. Without it, courses would be very difficult to create. With a wide range of creation tools, the Course Builder makes it easy to create everything from static content to full-fledged code challenges with multiple authors. Even create standard question types such as multiple choice.

Create Robust Challenges

Beyond basic content, challenges are what helps your users learn and, more importantly, retain knowledge. With the builder, you can create multiple choice questions, image hot spots, and real-world code challenges.

Create Full-Length Courses

The Course Player is built around the idea of long-form content. It supports videos, images, code blocks, and a challenge area. Inside of the challenge area are several different task types such as multiple choice.

Make Informed Course Improvements

Have a course that is more difficult than necessary? With the analytics, it's easy to find out where your users are experiencing problems. By finding a single point of tension with users, it saves you the time and money of having to re-write an entire course.
