The leap from traditional in-person training to today’s advanced online learning academies has been huge. Learners now access training remotely and on their own schedule. Feedback is instant and management reporting automated seamlessly. The L&D terrain has completely changed.
E-learning content also continues to evolve, from e-books and video, to 3D animation and virtual reality. The next major shift is likely to be driven by artificial intelligence – or AI. What will this bring?
As the value of customised, flexible online training tailored to individual needs increases, AI could play an effective role. By collecting and analysing data on learner behaviour, skills, habits and patterns, the advanced technology could adapt how the learning management system delivers training to individual users.
This could help learners more quickly and efficiently achieve their goals and reach the targets set by management.
By analysing learners in detail using collected data, the next generation LMS could deliver training which individuals would respond best to. This, in turn, would result in better results.
AI could create a completely automated learning process. All course material, learning pathways and other data would be stored, deployed and tracked by the LMS.
Staff would learn faster and better, and this would result a better ROI for the organisation.
LMS on steroids
Current advanced LMS platforms, such as FUEL Learn, track learner progress while providing valuable feedback for highlighting problem areas. However, AI could take these processes to another level completely.
Individual training programmes could be automatically revised and redeployed by an AI learning management system, continually making sure training is maximised for each learner.
An AI-enhanced LMS could also provide management with recommendations for addressing specific problems with learners and the effectiveness of specific content.
