Employee Development
to learning, organizations are beginning to embrace
new technologies that allow for a highly personalized,
collaborative, mobile learning experience. This is being
aided by new types of learning management systems
(LMSs).
According to Iain Scholnick, CEO and founder of Braidio,
new LMSs have evolved a long way from the traditional,
rigid, course-based approach to learning. They now
integrate collaboration and continuous learning for a
better training experience.
" People are taking the tools they've
found in consumer experiences
such as Facebook, LinkedIn,
texting, and email, and have
worked them together to
enhance traditional learning
management systems,
which are very top-down
types of systems, " he says.
What to Expect
Today's LMSs embrace a modern way of work in both
their delivery and execution through:
1. Active, on-demand learning. Employees today need
easily accessible, precise, and relevant just-in-time
learning solutions, driving LMSs to integrate mobile
capabilities and microlearning.
The starting point for
LMSs are no longer
merely compliance tools
used to deliver courses
to employees and status
reports to management. " The
starting point for learning
experience platforms is the
learner-not the administrator
or manager-and not compliance
or reporting, " says Sam Herring, general
manager at Intrepid by VitalSource.

platforms is the learner. It's
no longer the administrator
or manager, and it's not

" What we're seeing is that [organizations] are trying to
provide a more flexible framework for learning that
really adjusts to how people work today, "
says Braidio's Scholnick. " What's popular
is having learning being driven by
employees' need for a just-intime
type of solution. How you
work in your workday-that's
when you want your learning
to occur, not to go offline
for eight hours and take a
course. "
He also says that in reality,
employees can only dedicate
one percent of their
bandwidth weekly to absorb
new information, so platforms
need to deliver bite-sized
content that is continuous and
engaging.
" Providing opportunities and experiences
that promote continuous learning is a growing
Herring says that some of the most popular features in
new LMSs include:
* consumer-grade usability;
* collaboration and social engagement;
* personalization;
* opportunities for practice and application;
* mobile accessibility;
* the ability to support bite-sized learning such as video,
gamification, and badging; and
* micro-credentialing.
necessity for many organizations looking to remain
agile in today's work environment. Rather than relying
on older methods of structured learning, it's important
now for organizations to create an effective culture of
continuous learning and deliver small chunks of relevant
information in the context of your employees' daily work
life, " says Tony Barbone, senior vice president of SumTotal
Systems Sales, a Skillsoft company.
To do this effectively, enabling learning on various
systems and devices is key. " Engaging and responsive
mobile design and notifications make it easy for every
role to engage with the LMS on-the-go or from remote
locations, whether online or offline, to ensure learning is
prioritized and accessible when and how people prefer to
consume it, " he explains.
