An LMS, or Leaning Management System, is an essential tool for managing and organizing learning in a corporate education program.
Inside an LMS platform learners interact with content in its various forms of presentation. As a result, your employees can have access to unprecedented learning experiences using interactive, multimedia, audiovisual resources.
Also, an LMS allows you to manage employee performance in training courses and have investment control. This is possible due to managerial reports for results analysis and supervision of the development of each employee individually.
Now let´s explore the 3 main advantages of an LMS.
Learning organization and management
An LMS aggregates in one place all of the e-learning content produced by your organization.
This simplifies performance management, since all managerial information is available in a single place. It also reduces maintenance costs, which can be dedicated to only one product.
Last, but not least, it allows you to create collaborative databases that can be accessed by teachers and learners in any place, at any time, with any device.
Cost reduction and investment optimization
The first gain with the adoption of an LMS is the elimination of the costs associated with face-to-face courses. For example, expenses with tickets, accommodations, meals, classroom supplies, taxi rides, etc.
Also, there are gains in terms of scale. Once the course has been created and hosted on the platform, it can be taken by all employees without additional costs, with flexibility, and on demand.
Another advantage is real-time visibility of the performance of each employee with clear identification of gaps. This allows you to have better understanding of future training needs, consequently allowing for more assertive investments.
Upgrades and interactions that enrich learning
Has course content changed? Is there information that needs to be updated? Are there new data available? An LMS allows for upgrades, replacements, and partial or incremental updates at any given time.
An LMS also allows you to complement content with texts, images, videos and other resources, resulting in learning with higher engagement and improved results.
A strategy that has brought results that are consistently positive is the adoption of gamification elements. It’s a way to increase the attractiveness of the topics covered and to generate identification and relevance for the employee.
