Power your courses with a
personalized learning platform.

Our adaptive platform is designed to give learners the tools they need to go at their own pace and successfully apply the training back on the job. And the platform’s analytics verify learner mastery, identify “All Stars,” and both predict At-Risk learners and provide actionable data to target remediation.

Licensing Fulcrum's platform will empower you with a framework to break information down into micro-learning and nano-learning sections (a.k.a. digestible chunks) that can be learned quickly. And our library of train-the-trainer videos will help you get up to speed using the platform, such as importing, organizing and editing your content with our user-friendly CMS.

Once your course is built, it’ll plug right into your LMS, and with single sign-on, your learners are ready to go. Our analytics engine will then help you evaluate the efficacy of your content to fine-tune courses and allow you to make data-driven decisions. And if you need more help? We’re ready. Beyond our platform expertise, we have years of experience (and a few awards for) designing and producing courses.

Fulcrum’s full-service model begins with a thorough analysis of your objectives

and business needs. We use a modern approach to the industry-standard ADDIE model to create courses. We apply the fundamentals of ADDIE while incorporating many checkpoints and content assessments along the way.

Our goal is to solidify a training strategy early on, and keep stakeholders involved throughout the entire process to ensure course efficacy and successful implementation.

It’s a proven, best-practice production process geared toward collaboration, efficiency and accountability.

I am deeply impressed by the professionalism, curiosity, and commitment Fulcrum has to understanding and enhancing student outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. We’re a global training solution and our platform can support local language needs.
The structure and framework of our adaptive platform are designed specifically around micro and nano learning. Learners are presented 1-5 learning objectives at a time and master those before moving on, as numerous studies have shown that breaking information up into micro and nano learning “chunks” increases engagement, focus and retention. *Micro-learning and nano-learning are just one of several learning science components that we’re leveraging to create an effective, efficient and learner-friendly experience.
Fulcrum Labs Personalized Adaptive Learning and Predictive Analytics (PALPA™) Platform is not an LMS or HRMIS. It’s a powerful, complementary learning tool for your existing system. Our platform creates a personalized, adaptive learning experience for your students or employees, while our proprietary algorithms and data analytics help your instructors and administrators predict learning and costly application gaps.
Yes, our platform easily integrates into other systems allowing for seamless SSO (Single Sign On) authentication. Common industry API standards we've used with our customers include LTI and SAML. For older systems, we can implement via LDAP.
Good question. It’s something we’ve been asked a lot lately. Yes, it can. Some of our partners use our platform as both a training tool and also to optimize the screening process of new hires.

Candidates simply complete an approximately 10-15 minute diagnostic course in our competency-based platform. (The course could be built from your training content and/or some content from our prebuilt library.)

Our analytics then identify candidates with the greatest potential from your pool of applicants. You'll have a distinct advantage in hiring the right people; greater confidence in the selection process; employees that are more focused before they start; the ability to streamline and accelerate the hiring process; and as a result of these things, you'll increase productivity and reduce turnover.

The process also gives candidates a much greater sense of the position to assess if the position is a good fit for them as well, which also helps ensure you get the right person for the job and reduce turnover.
We know that implementing new software can be daunting. And we take great pride in the fact that clients tell us we're great partners.

We have experts dedicated to help you with successful implementation and a full training program to guide the technical and courseware integration process.

Should you want help with content, we also offer full-service Instructional Design and video creation. Our award-winning content team can help with services like curriculum design, assessment creation, 2D and 3D animation, motion graphics and custom video production. We’ve built hundreds of hours of content and thousands of assessments in our platform.

We are here to ensure your success. We're your partner.
If your L&D team has already developed video training, then all you need to do is upload the content and create adaptive assessments.

If you need help converting your existing material to video or creating adaptive assessments sets, Fulcrum Labs has a team of accomplished instructional designers who can help convert them for you. We’d be happy to discuss the scope of the work and create a plan and budget for you.
Yes, our platform is 100% web responsive and can be used via a web browser for any tablet or mobile device type.
We have a library of available courses for higher education, commercial aviation and medical. Our higher education courses are listed in the Higher Education page on the site and you can download course outlines for each of them. Contact us for more information about pre-built content.
How do you track your training outcomes?
Historically, learning outcomes in the corporate training and compliance space have been defined and tracked by your LMS as seat time and completion. To make sure you're empowering your employees and reaping the full benefits of training, the key question is: Did the employee master the material?

Fulcrum Labs’ proprietary algorithms are gathering hundreds of points of data that can be used by organizations to pinpoint exactly what an employee knows. We can track learning down to a single learning objective and determine if this learning is merely rote memorization or if the learner can apply the knowledge to the job. Fulcrum is a robust evaluation tool that can help reduce risk for compliance heavy industries, maximize efficiencies for process driven jobs, and greatly reduce the amount of time spent training.
Absolutely! If you’re working with your content in our platform, you’ll see that you can upload changes to videos and text within minutes and instantly push them live to your learners. If you want to add new lessons or re-arrange a course, your instructional designers or course administrators will have access to our Content Management System to create new lessons.

If you go the full-service route, we can also accommodate changes quickly. We can typically make simple video, graphic, and lecture note changes within 24 hours. We’ll work with you during the curriculum design phase to create the training with change-likely areas in mind.
Look for adaptive learning platforms that can pinpoint the depth and degree each concept, competency and/or learning objective has been mastered, and that also evaluate course efficacy and suggest ways to improve it.

Adaptive technology is a powerful learning tool for the learner, but it’s exponentially more powerful when it’s combined with other elements of personalized learning, a competency-based approach and things like microlearning, because it then starts to truly replicate many of the benefits of a dedicated, one-on-one tutor.

It’s easy to get excited about the potential of an adaptive platform, but make sure it’s also going to meet all your technical requirements, in terms of things like compatibility, ease of use (think SSO) and, of course, stability. Just because a learning platform is digital and can theoretically handle high volumes of learners, doesn’t automatically mean that it will in real-world practice. You might not want to be the first one to find out.

Adaptive technology has the potential to maximize course efficiency, in terms of time to mastery, as the system is adjusting for each learner, serving them the most appropriate level of challenge, in-the-moment tips, hints and positive feedback. On the learner side -- because they don’t see all the behind the scenes adjustments made by our adaptive engine -- one of the most common compliments we get from learners is that they love being able to go at their own pace. Note, they’re also able to jump right into proving mastery for those subjects in which they have prior knowledge.

Similar to a one-on-one tutor, we want don’t want to discourage or frustrate learners with material that is clearly above their current ability or lose their attention by presenting them with material that is clearly well below their capabilities. So, one of our main goals with our adaptive algorithms is “Optimal Challenge,” the level of difficulty just above a learner’s current ability. Optimal Challenge is a strategy that has been used successfully across the gaming industry.

Adaptive learning platforms have the potential to collect a wealth of data on both the learner and the course. An effective adaptive platform should be using data and A.I. to help instructors quickly and confidently target remediation and provide assistance in fine-tuning the course. But the data shouldn’t overwhelm instructors with unnecessary stats or cluttered displays. Look for instructor dashboards that keep things simple and relevant, namely: Who needs help, Where (specific learning objectives), and Why. Make sure the platform can help you evaluate course performance and make suggestions for how to improve it, based on analytics. Consider that your course is not fixed. Go into the process knowing that you’re going to make tweaks and additions to the course over time. You’ll refine some of the assessments and/or content. You’ll have new additions. You might want to take something out that’s no longer relevant. You might just want to move things around in terms of the order of the course. Pick a platform and partner where this is easy. You’ll thank yourself later.

You’re not just picking technology; you’re also picking a partner. Make sure your goals and philosophies align. Speak with their customers about their experience—integration, implementation, rubric for success, the provider’s process, collaboration skills, customer service, hidden fees, stability of the platform, etc.
