With the latest advancements in Learning Management Systems, the eLearning world is ready to embrace it more than ever.
FREMONT, CA: In the past few years, many educational institutions have been experimenting with Learning Management Systems (LMS), making significant changes in their structure, functionality, and efficiency. This technology helps institutions create, adopt, administer, distribute, and manage all the activities associated with eLearning. Extended school shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic have posed certain limitations on traditional teaching methods, forcing educational institutions to confront existing technological shortcomings. When implemented, LMS technology can make eLearning experience powerful, simpler, personalized, and more interactive. Here are some major LMS trends that are going to impact eLearning.
• eLearning Content is Changing
eLearning content was mostly focused on compliance and regulatory tracking. However, the focus of eLearning content has changed now. It is no longer centered around compliance but around leadership and work-life soft skills training. This LMS trend is beneficial to learners since skills are highly transferable. It is helpful to employers who are trying to reduce the sizable soft skills shortage. By taking note of this trend ongoing in eLearning content and the following suit, educational institutions can narrow the soft skills gap.
• Data Analytics Becoming a Prime Feature
According to recent reports, 82 percent of learning managers think reporting analytics is one of the most significant LMS features. This points to a top LMS trend of 2020, which shows that companies depend more heavily on LMS reports. This trend is ignited in part by the uptick in digital transformation initiatives. Educational institutions are becoming more data-driven, and that data must be accounted for. Just one-way institutions are accounting for data is by using their LMS’s data analytics feature. Institutions that follow this trend will be more organized and better able to manage the quickly shifting digital landscape, ultimately affecting how corporate training is designed, delivered, and tracked.
• Technology Improving Content Delivery
LMS is constantly being changed to better meet the demands of learners. LMS designers have enhanced the way eLearning systems offer users content by enabling LMSs to adopt technologies that enhance content delivery. Some of the newer LMS content delivery formats that will continue to see include social learning, mobile learning, virtual reality, interactive content, and AI. This promotes user adoption, engagement, knowledge retention, and skills transfer.
