Started on an experimental basis, Impartus video-enabled learning solution just with one classroom in 2014 at IFIM brought some very positive feedback from students and faculty. IFIM added Impartus’ video-based learning platform to another classroom in the spring semester of 2015. Students can access the learning platform over the IFIM intranet or online with any web browser or Android mobile device. IFIM is extending the Impartus solution to their regular MBA Post Graduate Program. By spring semester of 2016, Impartus will provide support for IFIM’s entire campus, including 24 classrooms and the school’s auditorium, and will be fully integrated with the school’s new learning management system from Desire2Learn (D2L).
