The Superluminal LMS (sLMS) technology suite integrates the best elements of the social web with emerging education principles, accreditation systems, split-payment e-commerce, modular design, and more. It builds on the best open-source software platforms, and integrates proprietary plugins that specifically address the needs of evolving organizations.
Our Technology Platforms
The Superluminal Systems team is behind several open-source and proprietary projects focused on developing distributed web technologies, cryptocurrency systems, trust systems, social tools to transcend and include existing social networks, and immersive 3D VR/AR interfaces.
Our Design & Client Sites
Growing Learning Communities
Our consultation services include program design and coaching for teachers and organizational administrators to empower the creation and growth of deeply engaged learning communities. Course curricula can do more than train students with applicable skills and wisdom; they can create new income opportunities for students who choose to become teachers, ambassadors, and world leaders applying their new knowledge. We believe that truly effective educational systems are self-generating, individually empowering, and innately community building.
Curriculum Mapping & Badges
Superluminal Systems provides complete curriculum design services, mapping, and tracking systems to enable organizations and academies to develop highly effective learning pathways. Through the design of Badges compatible with open-badge standards, we provide effective accreditation and gamification strategies for on-boarding and long-term user engagement.
Superluminal Systems Stack
The Superluminal Systems Stack is an integrative software lattice that is being developed to include personal cloud architecture (DataCosmos), security and e-commerce systems, learning management and collaboration systems (⨕ LMS), an interoperable graph layer, semantic social layers (NodeSpheres), and next-generation data visualization systems and interfaces (The Core Network).
The Core Network
Designed and developed by Adam Apollo and Harlan T Wood as an open-source Enlightened Structure, the Core Network is a new information visualization and navigation system. Semantically organizing data based on harmonic (color-based) categorization, the Core Network coordinates spacial relationship in a dynamic and touch-friendly hex-grid based on shared meaning within each harmonic category. This revolutionary chromatic and omnicentric navigation system changes the way we view and organize data.
Tools for All Users
Superluminal Systems provides comprehensive tools and resources for students, teachers, administrators and organizations. Students can build a learning profile that can travel with them to other academies through open-badge standards. Teachers can post course material in nearly any media format, receive student feedback, and host live Q&A sessions. Administrators and organizations have access to tracking analytics, integrative e-commerce, and much more.
The Superluminal LMS is open-source, designed to run on top of the open-source WordPress platform, independently supported by thousands of developers worldwide. Our custom stack is a set of open-source, licensed, and proprietary custom components which were formulated with over $300K of R&D. While the WordPress “backend” itself is invisible to end-users, it provides a simple Content Management System (CMS) for administration of the site and learning programs. The system is highly extensible through a rich ecosystem of independent plugins.
Agile Software Development
The Superluminal LMS Development process uses Agile Software Development Protocol, which promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change.
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” – Albert Einstein
As agile organizations, teams and team members, we must constantly question what could be better in order to continually improve.
Custom Theme Design & Branding
For many organizations, branding becomes an essential component of an Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio. While complete branding design is not a standard component of this project package, effective integration and extension of existing branding elements is required to connect LMS users with the heart of an organization. In terms of IP portfolio development, this can be more valuable and important than the central branding itself, as it can extend the central energy architecture of an organization through every level of it’s infrastructure, on-boarding process, and engagement.
