TOPYX What is TOPYX:
TOPYX is an easy to use eLearning 2.0 Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that combines traditional learning management system (LMS) functionality with integrated community tools, social networking and mobile learning resources Intended audience:

TOPYX is an affordable alternative to Blackboard and similar competitors Drawbacks:
No real improvements over Blackboard or the ELC Usability:
Easy to navigate plaftform--enter "community", then enter the "class", then enter, "student" page.
More Strengths:
Large focus on the social networking tools that are embedded within the program. TOPYX stresses that allowing users to access Facebook or Twitter from within the eLearning environment will result in more knowledgeable, productive and confident students. Tech Support:
available through asynchronous web pages as well as synchronous chatting with a helpdesk professional Recommendations for K-12 Environment:

Students would be able to achieve their credits on line away from the environment that led to them not succeeding. 2.
