The greatest challenge that any learner faces today, is not “what to learn” but “how to learn effectively”. This drove Manipal GlobalNxt University to develop a Learning Platform that is flexible, scalable, reliable, and most importantly easy-to-use. The system has been completely revamped with only one goal in mind – a great user experience.


Our Interactive Digital Content condenses the entire content of a 300-page textbook into 15-20 interactive webpages, each with its own set of clearly defined learning objectives, without losing any relevant subject matter information. This is done by a passionate team of Faculties, Instructional Designers, Graphic Designers and Multimedia Developers. Some of the different types of digital content on offer are:

  • Faculty-led instructional videos
  • Animated concept videos and case studies
  • Concept maps
  • Interactive animations


The problem of asynchronous communication with eLearning environments is due to the lack of contact with faculty/instructors as compared to the traditional classroom model of learning. Also, each learner does not study the same subject matter at the same time which further compounds the problem of giving individual attention to the learner’s problems.


GlobalNxt offers a learning platform using multiple channels where every learner is regularly updated about the learning activities that are scheduled for their benefit. This Discussion Board or DB is an integral part of education at Manipal GlobalNxt University where the action happens. The DB is the co-learning forum where learners immerse themselves in case discussions, put themselves in the shoes of decision-makers, voice opinions and defend them. This experience is facilitated by our expert faculty, who nudge and prod the forum to bring out the best in students. Graduates benefit from insightful questions asked by the faculty that persuades them to think!


The only way to ascertain the amount of knowledge gained by a learner is through assessments. In eLearning environments, there is an even bigger question on Learning Effectiveness. How do we make sure that each learner is actually learning something from the content and the various learning activities? Some of the learning platform features are:


  • IMS Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) compliant: A worldwide standard for assessment content and results supported by a handful of applications in the world.
  • Lightweight and easy to access
  • Support for multiple questions types
  • Active feedback
