Delivering and Managing Learning

An LMS is software for delivering and managing learning within an organisation. Your LMS will help you keep all of your eLearning content in one place; make it available to learners, and monitor its usage. Your learning and development (L&D) managers can also produce regular reports on how many people have undergone training, which courses they’ve taken, the results of any assessments they took, and so on, with many of these records needed to demonstrate organisational compliance.

Streamlining Processes

An LMS will also help you streamline your processes. These processes include enabling you to manage your organisation’s entire learning catalogue, providing you with extensive role and security management controls, offering integration with your other HR systems, supporting content creation, as well as reporting and analytics - to measure how your people are performing in their learning.

Adding Value

Here are 5 ways an LMS’s will support your L&D efforts and add value to your organisation:

  • Planning – helping you analyse what learning is being successful
  • Blending – managing all forms of learning delivery
  • Control – giving your managers the control they need over which learning materials are being delivered, to whom and at what time
  • Assessing – your LMS can also assess the value of the learning each individual has received
  • Reporting – to determine the value of learning to the organisation
