Features of a Quality Enterprise Learning a Platform

Using a learning management system (LMS) at an organization is pretty much standard these days. Every company has its own culture, proprietary software, and special considerations for working at the organization. LMS systems often have several features that facilitate training and learning within an organization. But using an LMS system isn’t as straightforward as that. You must find one that has the features that work best for your organization. As an industry operating with cutting-edge technology, understanding what to look for in a learning platform is crucial to successfully deploying one at the enterprise level. Here are five features that a great LMS can offer. 

Native Authoring

A large part of education involves creating the content used to teach employees. Authoring content and maintaining a central library of content can be a challenge but some LMS platforms have built in the authoring tools. These tools, known as native authoring tools, allow users to adjust and create content based on analytics and usage of their systems. They can do it right inside the software, making it easier to develop courses and more or less real time. Native authoring makes it easier to take user feedback into account and personalized content as well. This can lead to better engagement and higher completion rates, while making it easier to create the content that matters most (or is at least the most effective) to your learners.

Accessibility

Accessibility is a key feature of any program but it’s doubly important with an LMS operating at the enterprise level. All learners, especially those with special needs or disabilities need some level of accessibility. Accessible LMS enables access to the same content features regardless of technological (or other) limitations.  Moreover, an accessible LMS ensures that everyone has equal access to educational resources and opportunities provided by the organization’s training program. By ensuring that an LMS platform is accessible to everyone, companies can ensure a successful training experience for every employee and help create a more inclusive work environment overall.

Artificial Intelligence

From content recommendations and skills assessments to transcriptions and video captioning, AI is integral to most LMS systems today. Artificial intelligence (probably the biggest buzzword lately) is a surprisingly significant part of an LMS system. AI and machine learning are used in learning management systems. In this case, the AI component enhances the user’s learning experience through personalization, performance tracking, and suggestions. The AI might track the amount of time spent on a particular lesson, then use that data to understand how the user learns. From there, it’ll make a prediction or recommendation based on that data. These systems’ machine learning algorithms are ideal for predicting behavior, engagement, and learning outcomes/performance. It isn’t always easy to determine where learners struggle or disengage with content, so AI is crucial for helping identify (and ultimately solve) these trouble areas. 

Training (Sales and Otherwise)

Many companies have a sales and product marketing department, but sometimes training doesn’t always go how an organization would like it to. Sales training via an LMS is an ideal solution for ensuring teams can develop the skills needed to make sales. Enterprise learning management systems centralized platform to manage/deliver content, track performance, and measure program effectiveness. Along with automated reports and progress monitoring tools, it’s simple enough to scale training up or down to accommodate learner needs (and abilities). Any enterprise learning platform aim to provide a seamless, easy-to-use, and consistent experience for multiple departments throughout an organization. Finding a platform that you can use for sales or other types of training can help you take full advantage of this fantastic technology and help your teams thrive. 

Scaling

Speaking of scaling learning, it’s essential to be able to do it across your entire organization. Using your LMS to scale content means you can help your teams learn, but it also can help you save money. Most LMSs are flexible enough that you can create a single platform for all your training needs. This means you can use it to scale learning across the entire organization, including teams and departments that were previously unable to have their own internal LMS. Scaling also means you can use your LMS to scale content for training and development, saving you time and money. When you get right down to it, the ability to scale your LMS makes a difference when you experience a surge in growth, change in a project, or some other form of industry change that requires you to adjust your team’s educational content.
