Outgrowing Your LMS?

5 Ways Modern Learning is Rewriting the Rules of the LMS

The rate and severity of change has seemingly increased for organizations in nearly every industry in recent years. Employees are feeling the effects of these changes and are responding, which is why the labor market is so volatile. Both skilled and unskilled workers are in high demand as organizations scramble to appeal to prospective employees.

Expectations are once again on the rise not only for the workplace but in every part of the process. Nowhere else is this more apparent than in the world of workplace technology. A scattered workforce trying to accomplish more with the same tech is pushing the limits for some platforms.

How organizations respond and how quickly they adapt to new situations and challenges will directly affect their ability to retain their people and even attract others.

Learning and development needs, at the organization level, have also seen dramatic changes, especially as the world shifted to remote learning opportunities. Modern learning and development is quickly finding the limits and showing the limitations of inferior solutions.

Many organizations are finding that they have outgrown their LMS as they accomplish tasks outside of the platform to accommodate its limitations. The more learning activities delivered, managed, and tracked outside of the LMS; the more the need to find a modern solution is a necessity.

In this eBook, we’ll breakdown the 5 ways that modern learning is rewriting the rules of the LMS:

  • Fostering knowledge, not simply facilitating training
  • Being flexible in the face of change
  • Enabling new learning strategies, not confining them
  • Creating personalized learning experiences
  • Moving beyond a “top-down” approach to learning
