Every company has a content management problem – and that’s especially true of educational content. Process inefficiencies can frustrate end-users and negatively impact their learning.
For today’s digital workforce, ongoing education and upskilling is a must. 72% of organisations say investing in eLearning sharpens their competitive edge, and spend heavily on solutions to improve learning outcomes.
But even with the impressive front-end many learning content management systems (LCMS) provide, there’s often a vast imbalance between functionality and user experience.
A best in class approach
To unlock the full value of LCMS investments, there are three important steps you should take:
Step #1. Go digital
From apps to ebooks, videos to podcasts, much of modern life is experienced on-the-go. Learners need to be able to study in bite-sized, mobile-friendly chunks, no matter where they happen to be.
To realise the benefits of this, organisations need to create a secure and fully-managed end-to-end ecosystem of trackable digital content – that is both scalable and can be delivered to mobile devices on demand.
The latest LCMS systems can also bridge the gap between legacy learning systems and new digital content, ensuring that the user’s learning journey is a smooth one.
Step #2. Join everything up
Learning content must be accessible anywhere in the world, on any device, and across complex enterprise networks. If you’re experiencing poor learning outcomes and rising departmental frustration, you need a clear view of the technical gaps that might be impacting end users.
This is where a Learning Content Operating Model (LCOM) can help. It provides an effective framework to assess your current strategy, set future goals, and make clear which technology solutions can help you to deliver them.
Step #3. Demonstrate ROI
Despite technology’s growing dominance in the workplace, many organisations still approach training and education with inefficient mechanical processes:
- Printed materials
- Tick-box checklists
- Manual data entry
- Paper reporting
Digitising these elements quickly improves the user experience – but also gives organisations data to prove that their learning programmes are having a positive impact on the business.
That’s why digital delivery needs to be at the top of the agenda for anyone leading a corporate learning initiative.
