Learning Management Systems (or LMSs) are software applications that allow educational establishments and organizations to administer and deliver learning content to their students or employees. The LMS is a great tool for corporate training and it is becoming very common as such system can satisfy company’s needs with continuous learning and employee development strategies. For schools and universities it enables teachers to upload video lectures and documents, monitor participation and interact with students.
However, some companies and school principals are still not sure about ultimate benefits of learning management systems. Here is what an LMS can do for learning and development needs:
An LMS combines multiple types of learning including e-learning, mobile learning, MOOC and the traditional educational program. In fact, LMS offers a central repository of all study materials and therefore makes information available to staff and students anytime.
An LMS helps students to enhance their performance through reporting tools. Progress can be tracked and analysed by teachers and management staff to understand what courses should be improved or what changes are needed to make overall.
An LMS also helps to integrate social networking elements. For instance, Unius LMS platform allows employees to share updates, videos and study materials; take part in discussions online by commenting posts and sending private messages. It contributes to peer-to-peer knowledge transfer and makes learning process more engaging.
No Restriction To Location
Students and employees can have access to their accounts on the LMS anywhere and anytime that is quite suitable for multinational corporations and international universities.
The learning management system allows to save time and cut costs on in-person training such as hard copies of study materials or students’ and teachers’ travel.
