E-learning has evoked growing importance amidst the current pandemic situation. Not only educational institutions, colleges, and schools are implementing Learning Management Systems and other e-learning solutions for continued operations, but these solutions have found their usage in all industry verticals.
IT industries are implementing Learning Management Systems for the skill development of their employees and staff to enhance their professional capabilities and bring higher operational productivity.
Healthcare industries, which include hospitals, medical facilities, and centers, are increasingly investing in the deployment of Healthcare Learning Management Systems. These systems provide healthcare practitioners working with them ease in completing the mandatory training requirements and keep themselves updated with the latest developments in medical science.
Digital marketers increasingly make use of learning management systems to get different digital marketing certifications to build their resumes and keep themselves updated with changing Google algorithms and other SEO strategies.
Banking and Finance industries deploy learning management systems to keep their employees updated with the amendments in taxation and fiscal laws and other banking regulations and policies.
Besides the examples as mentioned above, even individuals are making use of e-learning solutions and learning management systems to add to their talents and skills while they are stuck in quarantine.
But as an organization, when you plan on implementing an LMS, you need to look into several aspects. You need to make your best bet. Not every LMS available in the marketplace shall work for your organization. So, how do you choose the right LMS for your requirements?
We, at Zehntech Technologies, decided to create one for our organization as we planned upon leveraging e-learning solutions for the benefit of our associates. And here is our story.
As e-learning was taking pace, we were keen on leveraging the technology for ourselves. We have been developing e-learning solutions and Learning Management Systems, so we came with the idea that we can have it in the internal organizational settings as well. And as the idea was into consideration, the team thought, “Why Not?”
So, we started our research; we already knew the process; all we needed was a proper implementation. We needed a perfect learning management system that would give our associates the best experiences, so initially, we asked ourselves the following questions:
Why do we need this learning management system?
What will our associates seek within the LMS?
What are the specific training and courses that we need to set up in the system?
What must be the design and interface for the learning management system?
Where shall we get the content for the courses and training?
What could be the other organization-specific need for this implementation?
With the list of these questions, we carried on discussions with our associates to find the answers. Finally, we put together a team that would work on the development of this LMS software for the organization.
Our developers were extremely excited, and they perfectly knew the best implementations. They were keen on incorporating the best functionalities in the system and followed the same approach that they use for the clients for an implementation that shall be efficient and functional in every vertical and aspect.
Here is what they did.
Took View of Answers to Questions and Analyzed Them
Our developers analyzed the questions asked in the initial phase. They analyzed the need for Learning Management System and expectations from it. They took a full view of the particular training needs of the organization. Being an IT company, we knew that most of our training needs would revolve around the technical stuff. We made a list of technologies our developers work on and their requirements for knowledge enhancement and training in that technology. With that list, we were able to plan the perfect courses to be incorporated into the software that would give the best value to our associates. In addition to our developers and engineers, we also had our focus on the non-technical staff, the HR department, and sales and marketing workforce. For the HR department, we integrated courses that could help them promote a better work environment and ethics, ease out the recruitment process, payroll, and other functions. For marketing and sales force, we customized courses that could help them strategize better and drive higher leads and sales.
A place for big ideas.
Reimagine organizational performance while delivering a delightful experience through optimized operations.
Implementing Best Features and Functionalities
Once through with the basic needs and training requirements, we were keen on having a Learning Management System with scalable and extendable features and functionalities. The majority of users of this system had to be technical persons, so we could have gone with a highly technical approach integrating highly advanced features and functionalities in the LMS. However, we have a non-technical staff too, which could not have coped up with those technicalities. So, we needed something in between, something that was advanced, yet easy to understand. So, our developers chose a very easy to understand content management system, one of the most popular as well, WordPress for the solution and the LMS was up and ready with every feature and functionality we sought in it in record time.
So, this was our approach to implementing a learning management system in our organization. Being an IT company, we could easily leverage the capabilities of our developers for the solution. You, as an organization operating in other industries, can hire the services from an IT company like us to have this implementation done.
All you need to look into is your requirements for the learning management system and your expectations from it. With a comprehensive analysis of your needs and integration of best features, you shall have the best LMS software implemented for skill development of your employees into bringing higher professional capabilities and operational productivity in your organization
