Amidst the shift to working from home last year, it became a top priority to empower employees with relevant information to do their work well while providing them with quality tools for communicating and collaborating with their colleagues.
As part of this, corporate learning remains one of the most important programs organizations continue to roll out. Be it for promoting product knowledge or for skill enhancement and training, companies are looking for solutions that drive interactive and quality independent learning. The challenge is in enhancing the relevance and promotion of content to keep employees updated and upskilled in tandem with their career aspirations and job roles.
So, what should an effective Learning Management System (LMS) have and how can it add value to an organization?
What to Look for When Choosing an LMS
A good LMS allows employees to upskill and acquire relevant knowledge by providing helpful material in context, something that helps employees hone their skills and perform their jobs better. It does not only provides information but also creates a collaborative space for people within the organization to communicate and share their knowledge in teams.
Studies have shown that a “learning organization” is often able to increase employee engagement, retain employees, groom leadership, and foster innovation. Enterprises play a crucial role in creating an environment that supports employees’ active learning, and this is where a strong LMS is a primary requisite as an effective communication channel.
There are various LMS currently available in the market but not all focus on providing a dynamic learning experience. In looking out for an LMS, consider how fleshed out the user and administrative experience are for accessing and organizing material, as well as the solution’s integration capabilities with HR databases and essential third-party tools. For instance, AvePoint’s Curricula is fundamentally built to delight users in their learning experience by making learning while working fun and effective.
Empowering Active Independent Learning & Augmenting Leadership Development
A good LMS creates space for collaboration and supports independent and proactive learning catered to one’s learning needs. Most adult learners today do not just look for basic theoretical information, but content that caters to their area of expertise and approaches that are unique in driving effectiveness and adding value to what they aspire to be.
Curricula is a great tool to promote a culture of independent active learning as its learner-centric design automates workflows, embeds governance, and contextualizes information. When coupled with AI functionality, Curricula is able to recommend specific content based on one’s skills and interests and nudge incremental learning. On a social front, Curricula perfectly augments the macro goals of employability, lifelong learning, and social inclusion.
