- Taking Advantage of Technology in e-Learning
- By offering e-learning through an LMS, organizations can offer a single, one stop shop that can be used to access all of the e-learning content required by their staff.

- MazikEd LMS has been written on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 which is a web based solution and providing all the state of the art features in e-learning (Described in detail in overview section).
- Reduce Errors
- Humans make mistakes. It’s inevitable. Handwriting is misread. Numbers are transposed. Documents get filed in the wrong file folder. MazikEd can eliminate all of these types of errors by implementing paper less environment and then storing it electronically.
- Reduce Cost
- Creating, filing, accessing and transporting paper-and film-based records and images can consume considerable person-hours. Compare that to student electronic, which can be created, filed, accessed and transmitted with little or no human intervention. The labor cost savings are obvious and considerable.
- Sizable savings can also be realized by eliminating the physical media itself. When records are created and stored solely electronically, it is no longer necessary to buy paper, film, or filing cabinets. Furthermore, the space that is now taken up by the filing cabinets that hold all of the paper and film records can be turned over to other purposes or vacated, thereby reducing real estate costs.
- Eliminate the Constraints of Location (Cloud)
- Physical media can be in only one place at one time. To be viewed elsewhere, they must be transported manually or digitized, faxed or scanned, and then transmitted.
- In contrast student information in MazikEd is accessible everywhere all the time. Authorized personnel can access them wherever a secure connection is available. With today’s securely encrypted Internet transmissions and new self-encrypted hard drives, that means anywhere on the planet.
