The Highfield LMS

What is the LMS?

An LMS is a tool for the administration and delivery of learning content. It is the system that your learners will log in to in order to access their courses and that your managers will use to set up learners and report on their progress. The Highfield LMS has been created with the needs of a business in mind; it reduces the time and effort required to administer training and features detailed reports on training progress.

Go to the LMS - lms.highfieldelearning.com.

How does the Highfield LMS work?

We have worked in partnership with many businesses and organisations and have gained a unique understand of the challenges they face when delivering training to a workforce. To overcome this, the Highfield LMS incorporates a tiered structure to allow you to replicate your organisational structure:

  • Company - the company as a whole
  • Division - the split of the company into areas, for example, London
  • Site - a specific site, for example, Oxford Street Branch
  • User - the individual who will undertake the training

Each level of hierarchy has one or more administrators assigned who can control the distribution of licenses for courses to all levels below them. The administrators can also access reporting data where they can determine the progress of their employees at a glance.

The system is very flexible and the use of tiers allows you to model your company profile. We have users ranging from single users right the way to multinationals and government organisations with tens of thousands of learners.

The LMS can be themed and styled at any of these levels allowing a corporate image to flow through your training.

Have your own online shop / e-commerce?

How do web services work?

We issue users with an API key - this enables users to make one computer system talk to another via web services.

What would API do?

The API once set up will provide the user with a seamless link from your website through to the Highfield LMS to purchase your approved courses and you can be billed for usage at a pre-set price on a monthly basis or you can be set up on a pay as you go basis.

  • The default setting of an API is to create a new learner and gives them the course/s

  • Default can change to get course from pre-purchased bank of courses

  • A separate payment for one off bulk buys can also be applied to an API user who is building up their market

  • Packages of courses can be easily built and given to purchasers, especially large contract orders

What does it cost?

A standard information support pack for setting up API costs nothing/is currently free from Highfield. A non-standard support pack would be priced depending on what was needed to set up a bespoke integration. Branding options start at £750+VAT although we can provide this branding work free of charge if you place an initial order for licences of £1,000+VAT or more.  

How would I use it?

If you preferred learners to access the training from your own website, we have web services available so could provide a landing page for your website where learners would log in and be taken through to our LMS where the training would be accessed. 

What does it look like?

We have branding options available - the LMS could show your company logo and theme and a personalised web address. We can also add your logo to the certificates and an enrolment email. Branding options start at £750+VAT although we can provide this branding work free of charge if you place an initial order for licences of £1,000+VAT or more.  

Branding the e-learning

Customer service has always been at the heart of everything that we do at Highfield. Highfield e-learning is no different and so, as part of this, we have created a flexible, customisable Learning Management System (LMS). We understand that not all businesses require the same services and we strive to fulfill the requirements of each individual customer.

The Highfield LMS offers the capability to add corporate branding to the login portal for your company. This means that users from your company will see your corporate branding and colours. This offers the benefit of owning a company LMS but without development or management costs.

Branding options:

  • LMS branding - the use of company logos and colours on the LMS. Each of your users will be greeted by a corporate area for access to courses, reports and certificates. This option costs £750.
  • Branding of training content - company logos and colours used on the course shell. If this option is selected then the branded LMS will be included at no additional charge.
  • Customisation of training content - New illustrations, photographs, wording changes etc. Each job will be priced based on the requirements. Please get in touch to discuss yours.
  • Complete bespoke training courses - Complete courses designed and built just for you. See bespoke courses.

Want your own online shop / e-commerce system?

What is an e-commerce set up?

If you have an existing website but no e-commerce functionality, Highfield can provide a link (this can be embedded in to an iFrame within your website if desired) to the Highfield e-commerce landing page with custom price breaks available to you.

How does it work?

Highfield take payment from the customer when they order via the partially branded landing page and return the fee, minus Highfield’s pre-agreed licence cost, to you.

What does it cost?

The cost of development for this option is £1,500 including bespoke LMS branding. We can have this available for you in a short 7-10day time frame. The development required on your website is minimal.

Looking to resell our e-learning?

In addition to purchasing course licences from us, you may also wish to become a reseller of our courses to enhance the services you offer your customers.

Whether you’re a training provider, college or local authority, as a Highfield e-learning reseller you’ll be able to allocate user-licences with ease to your customers using our learning management system (LMS). Our LMS will allow you to make our courses available to your customers and they can also feature your branding every time they log in (should you wish to add this feature to your reseller package).

In addition to this, you’ll also be able to offer your customers the following as part of your service to them.

  • Their own branded online learning management system – this will be available via a unique web address and can feature their company’s logo with a colour scheme that matches their branding. All the learners of your customer will be able to access their courses directly through this system.
  • Their own branded e-learning certificates – when their learners print out their certificate upon completion of their course, this certificate can feature the branding of your customer. We have found this to be a huge selling point for resellers.

As a reseller you will be given the option of either purchasing learner licences from Highfield e-learning in advance of courses taking place or once you have received an order from a customer. Our team is more than happy to discuss both of these options with you. As a reseller you will also have complete control of the final price that you charge your customers for course licences.

Please note, that while Highfield’s e-learning courses can be used as a stand-alone delivery platform, you can also use them as part of a blended-learning delivery solution, alongside training materials available from Highfield International and qualifications available from Highfield Qualifications (if you are an approved centre).

If you would like to discuss our available reseller packages further, please contact our team on 0845 2260350/01302 363277 or email them at info@highfieldelearning.com.

Using your own Learning Management System?

What is SCORM?

For courses to sit on your own Learner Management System, we would provide a SCORM package.

The SCORM package is a zip file which contains all of the fields needed to run the e-learning, which is then installed onto your system.

How does it work?

The SCORM package is completely bespoke and we would provide a quote per course based on the number of learners who will be taking the course per annum and payment for using the SCORM is yearly. 

How many licences do I need to purchase?

A minimum licence commitment of 500 licences per annum generally applies.

What’s included?

General minor support on configuration will be provided as part of the quote however, if your e-learning system was to prove unsuitable, a charge may be put in place to cover any additional support installing the programme. We would also include branding of the course (logo & colour scheme) to give the course a corporate feel.

Highfield will require yearly access to verify how many learners have used the course. Within the contract there will be a system compatibility and acceptance process which includes a maximum of 3 days’ development work completed off site by our development team to ensure seamless implementation.
