Discover the top 5 benefits of using an LMS here...
You've mastered most of your digital alliances, from mobile apps to e-readers, and tablets to Bluetooth speakers.
Still there are some concepts that elude you, like this LMS people keep mentioning in business discussions.
You know it's a great piece of software, but what exactly does it do? Well, we're here to clear up any confusion LMS stands for Learning Management System...
Learning - because you use it to deliver educational resources and training programs
Management - because it helps you to organise your training and eLearning
System - because LMS is a piece of computer software.
In our recent article, we discuss in more detail, the benefits of introducing a LMS into your organisation.
In this digital age, Learning Management Systems (LMS) are proving to be an essential tool for many businesses by providing a one-stop shop for all of your administration, tracking, reporting and delivery of training programs, and all within a fast, user-centric software application.
For organisations in search of software that helps to simplify eLearning amongst their workforce, LMS can help by providing an integral base that houses and organises all of your eLearning content in one, easy to manage, location.
To ensure your company gets the most out of its Learning Management System, we've compiled a list of the essential benefits you can gain from an intuitive LMS.
1. Decluttered Training with Organised eLearning
An affective Learning Management System enables you to store all of your eLearning materials in one location, rather than having to spread numerous documents and data across multiple devices. This means, ultimately, the risk of losing such important materials is significantly reduced. What's more, once your eLearning course material has been uploaded onto the LMS, learners can gain unlimited access to the information, including access on the go via their smartphone or tablet.
2. Easy Access to Course Material via a Remote Server
If you're using a Cloud-based LMS, each user within your eLearning team will be able to gain access to your eLearning course material. This is thanks to all the information being stored on a remote server, making Learning Management Systems ideal for online collaboration.
Additionally, this means learners can access their course material as and when it suits them so they needn't wait until their next online training session to develop their skills and knowledge. Plus, learners scheduling their own training times means no missed training ses-sions.
3. Measure Learner Performance More Easily
When searching for the penultimate LMS, keep your eyes peeled for a Learning Management system that allows you to track the progress and overall performance of your learners. This way, you can ensure targets are being met by your candidates, and if they're not, you can provide supplementary resources to guide them and improve their performance.
The vast majority of Learning Management Systems feature reporting and analytics tools, which in turn can assist you in pinpointing areas of your eLearning that may require further attention and modifying.
4. Reduce Expenses and Save Money
E-Learning courses are far cheaper to deliver than traditional face to face courses, particularly when you consider that a LMS combined with eLearning means staff time away from work can be minimised, whilst also ensuring money is saved on staff travel and accommodation.
Return on Investment (ROI) models has demonstrated significant savings on training expenditure through using a Learning Management System and eLearning courses. Additionally, a lot of money can be saved by no longer having to hire or pay training personnel, training facilities, or for educational courses.
5. Gain Faster Induction and Compliance Training
An LMS combined with e-Training can ensure the hiring of new staff is made simpler and more efficient, not to mention faster via digital induction training. Whilst for organisations that need to stay up-to-date with current compliance regulations, a Learning Management System can be an invaluable tool. By making use of a corporate LMS, you can add new compliance standards to your online training quickly and easily.
