The Essence of LXP

A learning experience platform aggregates eLearning content from various sources, including third-party edtech platforms and provides easy access to them for online learners. LXP offers personalized learning experience due to AI-driven learning content recommendations based on previous learning choices and skill gaps. Thus, LXP leverages personalization and diversification of eLearning to improve learning KPIs.

When Custom LXP Is the Best Fit

ScienceSoft recommends building custom LXP when you need unique eLearning features (e.g., virtual labs in immersive learning), custom design, or integrations with custom third-party software. Custom LXP will grant you total control over the solution’s functionality, aggregated learning resources and help reduce TCO in the long run due to saving costs on per-user subscription fees, as compared to off-the-shelf LXP.
