The direct integration provides benefits of easy account creation and data exchange between CN and the LMS. The social learning features highlights Facebook-like post and polling tools, empowered by gamification features such as Anar Seeds and digital badges to enhance learning engagement.

Unlike traditional LMS threaded discussion tools, the CN LTI provides a more comprehensive and engaging peer discussion that has a social media look and feel. Learners can network with classmates or students taking similar courses. Lastly, CN LTI content remains even when LMS content doesn't. Learners keep their ePortfolios, course posts, and network connections for life.
Engage learners in global and social discussion
Bring classroom discussion to life through CN Social (CN Post). Learners can freely share resources, ideas, and questions. They can also use hashtags to quickly find posts of their interest. CN Post can effectively supplement or replace the traditional LMS discussion forums by offering more intuitive, organic, and student-centered online discussion.
CN Post also breaks down the walls between classrooms, connecting learners across campus and the world through the Campus Network and Global Classroom features.
Make learning fun with gamified features
Students collect Anar Seeds (points) while participating in a variety of discussion activities in CN Post. The gamified experience adds fun and positive peer competition to learning. The course Anar Seeds can also be passed back to LMS GradeBook for automated grading.
