Built on a foundation of extensive research on learning and the use of technology, Capital Education has created CapitalEdge, a true “Virtual Campus,” delivering a learning environment that can be tailored to an institution’s mission and history, and its expectations of students.

Learning Community

Our learning platform assembles all academic and administrative resources in one place, personalized for the individual student and instructor.

CapEd’s platform encourages discussions and real-world applications through interactive social media, while keeping students connected to classmates and instructors. The focus on community and social networking both in and out of the classroom connects students and helps increase retention.

The platform offers a range of appealing social networking tools:

  • Student profiles
  • Blogs
  • Friend Tracking
  • Topic-specific groups
  • Virtual coffeehouses

This strengthens the learning community and allows students and faculty to connect in a number of ways.

CapEd’s proprietary architecture allows maximum customization while also maximizing integration of processes and functions across the institution.

Course Interface

Our course design makes for effective, deep-seated learning. The typical “bucket-ized” LMS today offers a very fragmented experience for students, forcing them to frequently leave their learning environment to accomplish various tasks.

The CapEd interface, on the other hand, places students and instructors in an integrated, consistent online learning environment that serves as the single source of students’ learning experience.

Students can easily access:

  • A Course Map that organizes content in a clear, linear fashion, allowing for easy navigation and access to the course’s full range of resources
  • Built-in communication and collaboration tools
  • Course materials, information on assignments and due dates, and instructor announcements
  • Faculty and student directories, discussion boards, and blogs
  • Degree audit information and grade reports
  • School links such as library and academic resource centers

The course interface supports narrative content, animations, interactive exercises and rich media, external linking, and self-assessments.

Each page is customizable by the instructor and contains opportunities for discussion so students are engaged and able to actively participate in their learning.
