How To Get The Most Out of Your First Year Using An LMS
Expectations For Year 1 with eLearning Tech
There’s something exciting about using new technology. Whether that means solving problems, creating efficiencies, better management, (or all of the above), it’s an exciting and hopeful process. The experience is the same for learning technology. But not all learning leaders have the same expectations for the potential and the processes involved with buying a learning management system. First-time technology buyers may find that there are a million considerations to make and having a solid strategy in place is key. Experienced buyers will bring their knowledge of how important the implementation phase is and how “well begun is half done” can ring true.
People often overestimate what they can accomplish in a year but underestimate the progress they can make in 2 to 3 years’ time. This eBook examines what that first year with a learning management system often looks like and ways to measure the success of learning programs right away. This eBook is the first of a 3-part series that examines years 2 and 3 (and beyond) of using an LMS and the roles that stakeholders in learning can play in the process.
In this eBook, we focus on things that learning leaders should keep in mind when planning, executing and measuring data from that all-important first year of using an LMS. Topics include:
Identifying and prioritizing L&D goals
Looking at causes for change
Crafting a plan for a successful implementation
Collecting meaningful data to measure success
Strategy suggestions to avoid common mistakes
How to share progress and victories with key people in the organization
This eBook belongs to a 3-part series based on learning strategy, goal-setting, metrics, and roles that key stakeholders can play in learning and development programs.
