Below is a list of certain features and enhancements for learning management systems that should not be taken lightly. While some features may not be important depending on the organization or the higher purpose of the LMS, it is important to consider each feature, what it could be used for, and even if it is not important for the students and employees of today - could it become important as your training program or courses continue to grow and take shape in the ever-changing landscape.
What are the features to look for in an LMS?
Who Uses Training Tracking?
Broadly, any profession that requires continuing education credits or professional development units that are set by states, licensing boards, and certifying agencies can benefit from the adoption of training tracking.
What is an LMS?
A learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of educational courses or training programs.
While this is the generic definition of the application - LMS’s can be categorized in a few different ways, and it is important to understand the differences when looking to purchase an LMS that is right for your organization.
What are the Benefits of Tracking Training?
With a new generation of employees entering the workforce and rising to managerial positions - it has been found that millennials desire an outlined path for continued professional development. Onboarding gives a large hint at how the time spent at the organization will continue to run through the employee lifecycle. Now more than ever it is important than ever to develop cohesive training programs for employees to continue their growth and development.
What is Training Management?
Also known as: Certification Tracking, Training Tracking, Professional Development Management, Continued Education Tracking, or an LRS - regardless of the naming convention, it all points to the same solution.
Training Management is the process by which information about training is collected and stored to provide a detailed history of where one has been, and what one has left to complete to achieve desired results. Spanning across industries, professions, home life, hobbies, and more - creating a tool to track the steps someone needs to take towards what is considered success is a great way to validate performance, increase accountability, and enhance both productivity and compliance.
