Streamlined training process
Using an LMS to manage blended learning will improve and streamline your training administration process, allowing you to plan your training activities calendar and share it with your learners, trainers and co-administrators. With this, you can schedule and run your offline and online training as per the schedule, administer assessments pre or post your training programs and generate instant reports to determine the success of your overall training. An LMS also allows you to easily track the progress of your learners individually on a day-today basis (or as required), which is a time consuming and resource exhaustive task when done manually. Overall, it centralizes your training function and reduces your time and cost expenditures.
Ability to deliver engaging and motivating training
It is a well known fact that different people learn in different ways, with most being able to retain only 10% of what they hear. However, the learning and retention gets incrementally better with the addition of a new sense. This means, a training program that offers a variety of approaches, including face-to-face, online, mobile to name a few, is bound to have a greater success rate. And blended learning program carried out via an LMS enables you to do just that.
Choosing the right blend will help you break the monotony of a classroom session and the impersonal-ness of online learning. By pulling in formal and informal learning channels together, you can increase communication and collaborative learning not just amongst your learners but also between learners and trainers.
Scalability and wider reach
With an LMS’ robust and scalable architecture, training is not limited to the seating capacity of your classroom. You can reach out to a large number of learners, irrespective of their location and department. Your classroom training programs with limited reach can be substituted, wherever possible, with eLearning courses and virtual learning sessions that can be delivered to wide audiences spread across different geographies, without affecting the consistency and quality of your training.
Easy and secure exchange of learning data
The LMS’ secure system and robust server, facilitates uploading, storing and sharing of learning resources in the form of courses, assessments, documents and manuals that complement your blended learning program. These online resources serve as a repository for your learners to access information just-in-time of need or as performance-support tools during a face-to-face learning session.
With digitization of the work processes and workplaces, today almost every employee is equipped with a desktop or laptop (even both, sometimes) and a mobile phone (of course!) at work. This entails a ready opportunity to leverage the existing technology at hand for learning without spending surplus budget on setting the basic infrastructure. By leveraging an LMS to deliver blended learning, you can not only make your training future-ready (brought in by Mobile and Social Learning), but the use of everyday devices as a means of training delivery will make learning an easy and interesting process for your learners.
