Traditional in-person training is becoming less and less relevant due to the realities of hybrid working and the changing need and demands of employees. Online learning platforms which allow flexible access to employees are, therefore, a real necessity.
Centralised, cloud-based platforms which allow staff to train anywhere on any device and provide the ability for interaction with each other are in high demand.
Choosing a online training platform which helps individual growth and accommodates a variety of learning needs, schedules and preferences is important.
The platform you choose should not only offer video-based microlearning but also functionalities such as webinars, forums, downloads, and gamification. These all enhance learning and engagement amongst colleagues and support flexible working.
This might seem obvious, but an LMS should be able to easily be scaled up or down depending on business needs. Subscription fees based on the number of users should also be able to be adjusted monthly.
A customisable learning management system allows for personalised learning pathways. These allow trainers and management to modify, track and update content to help learners reach their goals effectively. Platforms such as FUEL Learn also allow for colour schemes to reflect corporate branding.
Flexibility means that training and other LMS features should be available on any desktop, mobile or touchscreen device. Staff can then access your platform wherever they are.
Detailed tracking and reporting are key elements of an LMS as they inform management of the progress and shortcomings of learners. From this data, specific modules can be assigned, and new content created to fill necessary gaps.
An advanced learning management system such as FUEL Learn will effectively support and get the most out of a flexible workforce.
