5 Reasons We Are Thankful For An LMS

Thankful for LMS.jpgHappy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Skilljar! To celebrate the season of giving thanks, we are sharing 5 reasons that we are thankful for Learning Management Systems. 

  1. LMSes organize all learning content in one convenient location:
    Without an LMS, all training and customer onboarding content would be spread out across several different mediums. Perhaps one lesson would be a YouTube video, another in a physical manual or book, and another on a website. Because of LMS technology, all training content is available in one place, making it significantly easier for learners to access it and easier for training managers to deliver it. 
  2. LMSes make training content mobile: 
    Because of LMS platforms, training can be delivered at any time and on any medium. Learners with busy schedules can work through a course on-the-go, on their smartphones, tablets, or laptops. This also improves overall course participation since LMSs allow flexible timing that is friendly to all schedules. 
  3. LMSes make training content accessible:
    In today's globalized market, it is more important than ever to have training content delivered on a platform that is accessible regardless of the learner's physical location. LMSs allow for all learners to access training courses, even if they are located miles away from the company that is offering the training. 
  4. LMSes allow for message consistency: 
    If a company has multiple branches, message consistency can be a challenge. LMSs allow for one cohesive training course that is accessible to all customers or employees no matter where they are located. This ensures that all learners are receiving the same training and understand the product the same way, rather than having several different company sites each with different training. Even learners who are remote or international receive the same training as those who are actually on the training site.
  5. LMSes provide valuable analytics:
    Companies that use an LMS to deliver their training receive the benefit of built-in course analytics. LMSs measure, track, and report completion rates, certifications, overall course participation, and test scores, as well as several other metrics.
