Insight: How do you get maximum value from your LMS?

When you’re being asked to do more with less, it’s important to provide your people with the skills and knowledge they need in a cost-effective way. eLearning is frequently used to achieve this and many organisations are thinking about replacing their Learning Management System (LMS) because it no longer meets their needs.

Have your LMS requirements changed recently?

An increase in the pace of work has transformed the way organisations create, manage and report on eLearning. And as your workforce continues to evolve, you need an LMS that meets the needs of a multi-generational learning audience.

Indeed expectations for a modern LMS have shifted and requirements* now include:

  • Improvements to the user experience (88%) - Changes in front-end design and improvements in performance to make it more intuitive, engaging and user-friendly
  • A better administration experience (74%) - Greater flexibility in the back-end to suit the needs of every organisation
  • Dynamic reporting options (66%) - To deliver the information needed to make more informed decisions for the business
  • Systems integration (66%) i.e. with existing HR systems to enable tracking of learning activity
  • Mobile first learning (66%) - so learning can happen at a time and place to suit the user on their chosen device.

So if you’re reading this and thinking it’s a familiar story, you’re not alone.

The LMS is adapting…

The good news is that learning management systems have changed. And a good LMS is now capable of ensuring your eLearning delivers a wide range of business benefits, serving both the needs of your administrator and your learners.

So what does this mean for me?

With an LMS that’s fit-for-purpose, you’ll be able to communicate training, ideas and concepts quickly and easily to your workforce.

You’ll also benefit from having the flexibility to deliver your learning programme wherever your learners are, on the device of their choosing and at a time to suit them, which might even be outside of core working hours. And because you have made it easier for your learners to access learning, your overall efficiency will improve.

You’ll be able to easily track and report on your learners’ participation and engagement to better demonstrate the value and impact of learning across your entire organisation.

So, with such a compelling case, could now be the time for you to explore an LMS that really can deliver for your organisation?
