Congratulations Lyryx!

Lyryx Learning recently was honoured with an ASTech Foundation award.

What does Lyryx Learning have to do with Athabasca University?

Athabasca University Faculty of Business (AU-FB) has been associated with Lyryx Learning for almost two decades now!

In courses like ACCT 253, AU-FB has successfully implemented their assessment tools. By doing so, it creates a more efficient means for feedback. Teachers spend less time marking and students get instant feedback on how they’ve done in their assignments and quizzes.

Over the past five years, AU-FB has partnered with Lyryx Learning to develop open educational resources (OER) for three accounting courses. This means instead of a traditional textbook, the course relies on OER content (written and video) that is developed in-house by AU team members. Not only does this provide cost-savings for students, but it also means the content is fresh and built directly for that course.

And it doesn't stop there!

Due to student feedback, AU-FB has heard that they would like to see the Lyryx Learning assessment tool expanded into more courses. Not only will this shift courses more into a digital environment, but it also makes the courses more efficient. It eliminates time in marking and students get immediate feedback promoting independent learning through self remediation (aka a pedagogically sound learning tool!).

AU-FB students and industry see the value of Lyryx Learning

As an Alberta-made solution, Lyryx Learning is making a positive impact on education. Their work is inspiring innovation and has been recognized byASTech for their Outstanding Achievement in Information & Communications Technology.
