We are adjusting pricing, November 1st

Eliademy is adjusting our pricing to more accurately reflect the value users get from the service and to prepare the ground for groundbreaking updates (machine learning, popular requests such video recording).

If you are already a customer, this price change will not affect you; your current plan will remain the same until you decide to divorce us.

The changes will affect and be applied to all new customers, starting from 1st of November 2018. The price increase is as follows, from 5 euros per month for Admin user to 10 euros per month, and from 1 euro per user to 2 euros per user.

If your organization has 10 users then your annual cost will be:

120 euros flat free for admin user and 240 euros for the 10 users, 360 euros annual cost.

If your organization has 30 users then your annual cost will be:

120 euros flat fee for admin and 720 euros for the 30 users, 840 euros annual cost.

We want all of our users to be on annual prepayment plans so we have made the following sweet proposal: unlimited users, webinars and courses for only 500 euros per year. We recommend that you upgrade to the annual plan for big savings.

Again all current Premium customers will not be affected by this change and they can still use old discounted coupons to get annual prepayment at lower prices.

We believe this change will help us serve you better and provide updates in faster times and also reflect the current market situation. According to our benchmark, Eliademy.com has the best design, superb capabilities and offered as the lowest price that you can find, even after this adjustment in pricing.

Apua yritysten ongelmien ratkaisuun – ilmainen verkkokurssi!

1-9 hengen mikroyrittäjille on nyt saatavilla verkkokurssi, jonka pohjana on käytetty väitöstutkimusta 33 eri alan yritysten yhteisistä ja yleisistä ongelmista. Ongelmia on kartoitettu yhteensä huimat 690 kappaletta ja selkeästi monet niistä ovat yhteisiä kaikille yrittäjille.

Hugo Simberg

Verkkokurssi soveltuu sekä aloitteleville yrittäjille että kokeneille sarjayrittäjille ja mikä parasta se on ilmainen. Kurssi kestää n. 30-60 minuuttia (voit edetä omaa vauhtiasi ja tehdä vaikka osissa) ja sen aikana käydään läpi yhteensä 10 eri aihetta jotka auttavat sinua kehittämään oman yrityksesi kilpailukykyäsi.

Tavoitteeni oli luona kurssi joka on samalla helppo, nopea sekä tehokas. Toivottavasti onnistuin siinä, mutta otan mielelläni vastaan parannusehdotuksia.

ilmainen verkkokurssi!

Ultra Lean Business

Alla muutamia lyhyitä otteita kurssilta:

Helpoin, nopein ja tehokkain tapa oppia omista asiakkaista on ymmärtää miksi asiakas ostaatuotteita tai palveluja juuri sinulta, eikä esimerkiksi kilpailijaltasi.

Kaikki tekevät joskus virheitä tai epäonnistuvat tekemisissään. Usein ne koetaan negatiivisina asioina ja yritetään unohtaa mahdollisimman pian. Väärin!

Joku viisas on sanonut että “Riittää kun olet hieman parempi kuin kilpailijasi”. Tämä pitää usein paikkansa ja näin ollen menestymisellesi onkin tärkeää…

Yrittäjänä ja/tai toimitusjohtajana sinä olet vastuussa yrityksen suunnasta ja vauhdista – kukaan muu ei sitä tee. Liikkeelle kannattaa lähteä selkeän…

Maailma muuttuu kiihtyvää vauhtia ja muutoksen nopeus tulee kasvamaan myös jatkossa. Jotta pystyt parhaiten vastaamaan muutokseen, on tärkeää tuntea ensin oma toimiala ja siihen aiemmin liittyneet muutokset. Esimerkinomaisesti, keskitymme alkuun 3D-tulostukseen.

Tällä hetkellä vain noin 5-10% Suomalaisten yritysten liikevaihdosta tulee digitaalisesta kaupankäynnistä, mutta tämä osuus kasvaa kiihtyvää vauhtia. On ennustettu että digitalisaation myötä jopa 30-45% nykyisistä töistä poistuu (ja korvautuu muulla työllä) seuraavan 10-20 vuoden aikana, joten myös merkitys pienyrityksiin tulee olemaan huomattava

August Platform update release notes

During July the team worked and fixed the following issues:

1. Due to plenty of courses, we have to maintain the database and change configurations. Some issues will still be observed for few weeks time until we stabilize the system. We expect 5 minutes maintenance break every Monday to allow the system to re-index courses. The final fix will be delivered in September

2. Too many unread notifications can slow down the system, some fixes around this issue were released in order to improve performance.

3. Video limit regression of a previously fixed bug, no obvious end user experience but mainly for master admins.

4. Now we offer a direct line to our sales team via a chatbot. You can find it on left side of the page. By using this users can chat with our sales representative.

5. The message in cource publish page is updated to indicate that the data will be updated in production and can take time up to 30 minutes.

6. Error with Matchjax.js is fixed. It was because the public CDN we used for mathjax.js were moved to a different place.

7. Europeana API is integrated. A press release will be issued in the following weeks, we are testing system performance.

Celebrating 500.000 email invitations and an important notice

Eliademy today reached a new milestone. Over 500.000 email invitations were sent in the last 30 days. This is a significant milestone that keeps us running.

Because of the unprecedented amount of invitations and new users in the platform we have managed to shock the system. Therefore at the moment is hard to enrol to a new course from the public catalogue.

We advise all FREE users to wait for 3 days before sending new invitations.
For our Premium users, there is the following workaround.

Workaround steps:

  1. Ask the user to create an account with Eliademy
  2. Navigate to the ADMIN page and click “User Admin”
  3. Add the user into the system by uploading an excel of emails or emails separated by a comma.
  4. Go to “Manage enrollments” and then assign your users to the course
  5. Next time that the user will login will be able to see your course

Rest assured that the team is working hard to open up the catalogue to the FREE users in a short period of time. Until then you can ask from support@eliademy.com anything that could make your life easier. We are here to simplify and eager to serve you.

 

Eliademy shining new updates

We have done many updates on our servers this month. Now the users can sign into Eliademy using their LinkedIn accounts. The feature is not new, but it stopped working earlier because of some changes in LinkedIn authentication API’s.

We have improved Quizzes as well. The issue with copy-pasting data from spread sheet applications like Microsoft Excel and Libre Office into Quizzes is fixed. Clipboard data contained multiple formats of same data and it was not handled correctly in our code which was the root cause of the problem.

We are sending over 600.000 emails per month so we had to improve validation in the ‘Send-email-invitations’ screen. We had to improve validation in order to avoid users misusing our email servers and sending spam messages by utilizing a free service.
capcha check

One update in Organization management as well. Removing a user from an organisation will automatically unenroll the user from all the confidential courses of the organisation. So now you can remove a student from your organisation and automatically from the courses within the organisation.

We also updated our Video servers with more storage capacity and got better prepared to support the 1.000.000 students that we expect that we will be serving this year.

For the new free users there is an upload limit of 200 MB on our video servers. The change is not affecting Premium and existing free users.

A minor fix also on the the participant count in tasks and dashboards will not include the owner of the course. Also the profile page is updated, you can see the list of your learning courses at there.

The Gradebook layout issues are fixed now. It is displayed in pages when more than 100 users are present, it is sorted based on completion status and name of the user, and completed user details and displayed in different background color.
