A Learning Management System, or LMS, can revolutionise your business, but what is it? Well, put simply, it’s a digital platform for training employees. But it’s so much more. Take a look at these questions to help you choose a Learning Management System that’s right for you.
- What’s the point of an LMS?
At Quickclass we pride ourselves on offering one of the best learning management systems on the market (sorry to brag). Our premise is simple: software empowers companies to provide employees with top-quality education. At the click of a button, or touch of a screen, employees can have access to a wealth of educational content, including tools to track their progress. The functions of an LMS are:
Administrative ease: digitally organize your course catalogues, classroom enrollment and educational content, and say goodbye to endless paperwork.
Remote access: enable your employees to learn anywhere in the world, at any time, with a web-based or cloud-based LMS.
Tailored to your needs: Just want employees to be brushed up on company policy? No problem. Your business can use as little of the software as you need.
Onboarding: An LMS is the perfect resource for training new starters, freeing up your precious time.
Continuous development: Do you value the continuous education and assessment of your employees? Look no further, installing an LMS will help you foster ongoing skills in every member of your company.
- Which LMS features will suit my company’s needs?
There’s so much to choose from in an LMS: from progress-tracking to reports, assessments to course catalogues, it’s just a case of doing your research and picking what’s right for you.
- Who will be using the software?
Think about your employees – are they tech-savvy? What is their base level knowledge? When you build your LMS with us, it can be finely tailored to the competencies of its users. For this, you’ll need to enable some extra features.
- How skilled are my admins?
Nothing helps you optimize your LMS like a great admin team. So think carefully, does your team have the skills to make the most of an LMS?
- How big is my budget?
In your LMS evaluation, be smart and consider budget. This will include: overall costs, start-up fees, annual fees and ready-made course materials. With this in mind you can think about the LMS features that suit you – and your budget – best.
- What do I want to get out of my LMS?
Before you purchase your software, decide if you want to use pre-installed features or design your own. Evaluating your requirements will help you make the right LMS selection. Every business is unique, that’s why we offer tailored packages to suit your needs.
Once you’ve answered the above questions you’re well on your way to installing an LMS that’s perfect for your business! Go you!
