by | 13 Apr 2023

Business managers in the school or government sectors have likely heard the term “Learning Management System” (LMS) thrown around, or frequently use these tools internally. But they’re still a relatively new consideration for other industries.

So, what is a learning management system, and why do you need one? 

In this blog post, we will explore the basics of an LMS and discuss the benefits of using one for your organisation. We will also explain why and how Bounce Readiness implements an LMS solution for our clients.

What is a learning management system?

An LMS is a software application that allows you to manage, deliver, and track your organisation’s training programs. 

It provides a central location for all your training materials, including courses, videos, and other content. Employees can access this content from anywhere, anytime, making it an ideal solution for remote or distributed workforces.

Why do you need a Learning Management System?

When considering the why, you should seek what the benefits are so that the why aligns with your own.

  1. Centralised Training: With an LMS, you can consolidate all your training materials in one place. This makes managing and updating your content easier, ensuring that your employees always have access to the latest information.
  2. Customisable Learning Paths: An LMS allows you to create customised learning paths for each employee based on their role, skills, and job requirements. This ensures that your employees receive training relevant to their job and career development.
  3. Automated Tracking: An LMS tracks employee progress and completion of training, allowing you to monitor and analyse the effectiveness of your training programs. Automated tracking helps you identify areas to improve and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
  4. Cost-Effective: An LMS is a cost-effective solution for training your workforce, especially compared to traditional classroom-based training. It eliminates travel and accommodation expenses, and you can train employees at their own pace.

How a Learning Management System works.

An LMS is an essential tool for managing and delivering training programs for your organisation. 

Good LMS systems integrate seamlessly with your current tools and technology, they’re simple and easy to use, and keep your team updated on the progress of your eLearning modules and emergency management training programs.
