How to use your LMS to create a learning culture
February 08, 2019
Becoming a digitally fit organization is about more than just having the latest and most up-to-date technology. It's about being able to seamlessly integrate the use of that technology into your processes in order to transform the way you do business, according to Deloitte.
And the first step toward integration and a successful digital transformation strategy is creating a learning culture amongst employees to help them continuously learn new skills and stay up to date with the latest technology.
Your Learning Management System (LMS) plays a central role in creating this culture of learning by enabling real-time feedback and tracking, enabling 24/7 learning on mobile and using AI to make learning personalized to employee and company goals.
1. Enable real-time tracking and feedback
A digitally fit company, is one that maximizes the use of technology in order to make the business as efficient as possible. Your learning management system (LMS) enables this by creating a system for employees to get real-time feedback from managers, rather than waiting for annual performance reviews. Beyond feedback, managers can use the LMS to suggest learning content in real time. Through this system of consistent feedback and opportunities for growth, employees can course-correct and improve their work on a rolling basis—saving time and making them more productive over the course of the year.
2. Make content accessible on mobile
In order to create a digital transformation of learning, it's crucial to implement a culture of continuous learning. This means not only offering ongoing training throughout your employees' career but also making it accessible on the go through mobile learning. Today, 67 percent of people are using their mobile devices to gain access to learning, according to learning solutions company eLogic Learning, and that number is expected to grow: The global five-year compound annual growth rate of mobile learning services and products is 11.3 percent, according to a report by Ambient Insight. Using a mobile LMS, you can provide learning content when and where employees need it.
3. Use AI to deliver personalized learning
As your company works to become digitally fit, upgrading processes from manual to digital, it's crucial employees learn the necessary skills to integrate the new technology into their work. A modern LMS uses machine learning and AI to deliver personalized content to employees based on their specific needs, often allowing employees to target specific skills as well as a path for advancement as they master the basics.
Employees may not know exactly what skills they will need to be successful in the new digital world of work, and that's where a platform with AI and machine learning can help: recommending skills based on not only the strengths and weaknesses of the employee, but also their career goals.
