LMS (Learning Management System) is a system that has more or less proven to be beneficial for every sector.
Broadly it can be seen as a corporate LMS and Academic LMS. Where one is concerned with business and the other with education respectively.
The growth of distance education, online coaching, etc has been possible because of LMS. In the IT sector also the concept of work from home has been successful because of LMS.
There can be some hindrances in manufacturing and other sectors where the physical presence becomes mandatory for practical implementation but this doesn’t hold true in the IT sector.
The software when seen broadly has a very wide range but it can be compiled narrowly very easily as it doesn’t have any physical existence.
LMS has so much to offer to this sector. A major section of the population is employed in this sector and is expected to grow further in the future. The major challenge that arises is to manage this huge employment.
The fact that companies incur huge expenses in training and onboarding their employees itself shows the difficulty. This adds to the company’s costs by a significant amount.
The company gets to bear the entire cost from accommodation to training and onboarding. The threat posed by COVID-19 made this procedure online.
It is then the actual potential of LMS was being realized. Surprisingly the results which it gave were outstanding. The same work was done without impacting the efficiency.
No wonder that the features such as inbuilt reports and performance tracking system further provided assistance to better manage the trainees.
The IT sector is such where every version update and software update demands updating of its users as well. This is why the learning process is part and parcel of IT professionals’ work life.
There are different departments that are further subdivided into various teams. It is too obvious that each and every one of them would need a different skill set and different training for expertise in their field. These are time taking procedures and the regular work should not be affected due to this. The day-to-day activity can not be put to a halt.
The answer to all the above-mentioned lies with LMS. As with LMS, any number of employees can be trained and onboarded at the same time, various courses can be assigned to respective teams and individuals without affecting others, upskilling the existing workforce from time to time, on-boarding the new employees without any chaos, flexibility to attend and complete the courses doesn’t impact the regular work, tests to check the course gains to assure that training has been done efficiently and certificates to award the trainees.
These benefits are remarkable in themselves to contribute significantly to growth and success. It is certainly a tool to enhance the proficiency and efficiency of businesses.
