What Is a Corporate Learning Management System (LMS)?
Leaders at organizations frequently hear about the need for training and learning programs to help employees be more successful at their jobs by gaining a higher level of skill and improved productivity, leading to better job satisfaction and employee motivation. A Learning Management System (LMS) can help solve this problem.
Figure 1: An Overview of an LMS
A corporate (LMS) is used to deliver training materials and track learning progress in a corporate environment. An LMS broadly covers four functions:
- Improve Learner Experiences: Learner experience can improve via multiple content types, interactivity, accessibility standards, and discoverability.
- Manage Learning Materials: An LMS should easily add, import, or aggregate content and organize it into courses and learning paths. Content access using strategies like microlearning and standards like LTI, SCORM, and xAPI assist with creating a learner-centric environment.
- Generate Learning Outcomes: Most LMSs can collect metrics related to learner behaviors and engagement. These metrics can be analyzed to create insights and outcomes to guide learners through their learning journey.
- Track Content Availability and Quality: Some LMSs support advanced functions like automatic language translation to improve reach and gather metrics that can lead to content improvements as observed via learner behaviors.
