Private cloud

When working with a traditional learning management system, course participants have to log onto a platform, download material, save it on their local device, install editing software and, in order to share it, upload documents to the platform. This is a laborious and time-consuming process.

MaxBrain has decided to go a completely different way. Every course participant has their own private cloud containing all their course material. Course participants can view, edit and save their documents directly in this private cloud. All documents may be accessed from different devices (smartphone, tablet, notebook or desktop) and operating systems (Android, iOS, Windows). This is extremely simple and user-friendly.

Document management system

MaxBrain contains an advanced document management system (DMS):

  • Management of all course and educational materials
  • Versioning system for all documents
  • Definition of user rights for documents, e.g. by course or role (student, lecturer, trainer, programme manager)
  • Definition of workflows, e.g. in the context of compliance trainings

Document editing

With MaxBrain, course participants can edit their documents without additional software. Editing is done with the MaxBrain app (iOS and Android) or directly in the web browser:

  • Adding handwritten comments: Participants can write directly on their tablet or notebook screen as if it were real paper
  • Adding text fields with the keyboard
  • Marking text with a highlighter tool
  • Using various drawing tools (lines, rectangles etc.)
  • Integrating photos (e.g. of workshop pinboards)
  • Integrating audio recordings, e.g. from a lecture
  • Digital signatures
