What Exactly is an "LMS" and How Can it Benefit Your Business?
“Distance learning students are committed to their coursework, usually for the purpose of advancing in their careers. For this reason, you can expect quality work and diligent participation from students.” – Academic Technology Center, Worcester Polytechnic University
One of the most common questions we get at Learnpower is, “What is Learnpower?” The simple answer is, we are an LMS. What is an LMS, you ask? LMS stands for Learning Management System, which is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of electronic educational technology (also called e-learning), education courses, or training programs. In other words, it's a platform that allows you to deliver your content to your target audience.
The usual follow up questions is, “How can your LMS help my business?” There are so many ways but let me touch upon a few.
It’s Cost Effective- Since it is housed in a cloud-based environment, there is an unlimited amount of space to store your content. You no longer need to print material, or pay for the space to store it. Another point of savings is that the instructor doesn’t need to be physically present. Create the content, download it, and the LMS will take care of the rest.
It’s Customizable- You control the content. As the administrator, you can create the course or module to your liking. Add, delete, or edit the content so it meets your needs. Your content is now in one centralized location where you can access all of your material quickly and safely.
Easy Tracking - Whether it’s a student, customer, or employee, you have the ability to track their progress. You can see on an individual basis, how long they are on the LMS, and what content they are consuming, down to the second.
Expand Your Reach- No longer does your physical brick and mortar location limit you to a specific geographic region. Today the internet presents us with an opportunity to reach a global audience, why not take advantage?
