Make the Best Use of an LMS to Streamline Your Training Activities

Manage Online and Classroom Training Programs Seamlessly

Training and employee development has assumed tremendous importance in recent times. More organizations are adopting online learning to train a diverse and location-dispersed workforce. This has created the need for a central platform or a learning management system (LMS) to host the courses that are accessible to employees from anywhere.

Apart from this, other reasons to opt for a learning platform include:

  • Centralized location of learning resources for employees, customers, and partners
  • Hosting facility for a variety of training materials – videos, simulations, microlearning modules, e-learning courses, PPTs, e-books, and more
  • Saving time and money for organizations making the transition from classroom training to e-learning
  • Getting more value from training and an improved return on investment

Salient Features of an LMS

LMSs have evolved over the years. Today’s new age LMSs provide a seamless platform for both structured, formal learning and social and informal learning, to maximize employee performance. They also include a host of features that include:
  • Intuitive interface that is easy to navigate and interact with.
  • Gaming elements such as leaderboards and badges that allow employees to win rewards and points, and the motivation to complete training.
  • Social and collaborative learning (chats, discussion, forums, etc.) that allow employees to interact with one another and with SMEs.
  • Real-time tracking and reporting and complete learner analytics that includes collection, analysis, and reporting of data about learners and their contexts so as to understand and optimize learning and the environment in which it occurs.
  • Easy administration makes it quick and easy for administrators to navigate and perform
  • Responsive – from desktops/ laptops to tablets and smartphones they provide the ability to access through any device.

How to Use an LMS?

Use an LMS for managing users, managing courses & curriculums, and for reporting.


A LMS can generate various reports that will help organizations measure learning effectiveness – overall, learner-wise, and course-wise. The various reports include:

This report gives the complete details of a user and of the total number of users available in the LMS. Data can be filtered to get data related to a specific list of users.

This report gives complete information about courses with respect to users. It shows the current status (Registered/ In Progress/ Completed) and score for the selected course and particular user – helping analyze and monitor each training and user status.

These reports provide graphical representation of all user feedback for a course, enabling training managers analyze feedback and take appropriate action to improve the training. This feedback will be useful for:

  • Developing new trainings and making the LMS easy to use
  • Providing options to view consolidated and individual feedback

This report gives a very detailed report on an assessment/ quiz. This can be exported to Excel for sharing or for further analysis.

This report shows information about learners who have accessed the course. It tracks the time, date, and system IP address. This data can also be exported to MS Excel.
