Why You Need an LMS

Online learners today can read blogs, browse Twitter, participate in Wikis, turn to social networks, watch videos and more, accessing valuable information about any subject. The opportunities are endless. So why do you need a learning management system? Why not just let learners find what they need on their own?

Take a second to consider just how much content is competing for your attention in your Facebook news feed…

Okay, that was fifteen minutes, not one second. See how easy it was to get sucked in to the different cat videos and political memes that appear online every day? Do you want your learners to be refreshing their knowledge of job tasks, or seeing how small of a box Maru the cat can fit in? Here’s a hint: it’s a very small box, and knowing that won’t improve your bottom line at all. So help your learners out by sifting through the internet and offering the best of the best through your LMS.

Centralized Knowledge Hub
Using an LMS offers your learners a centralized knowledge hub and an easy way to access what they need, whenever they need it. With an LMS like Lectora® Express – The Easy LMS, you can share informal content like video, web-based content and more, along with formal e-Learning content. A more full-featured LMS like CourseMill® LMS also offers you excellent tracking and delivery of formal e-Learning content. No matter what your organization needs, you can find an LMS to fit!

    The 21st century is marked with creative freedom and opportunities of access to
    knowledge afforded by mobile technology. Learning management system has taken the e learning to another level by adding the following features that make the learning journey enjoyable and fruitful.

    Instant audio and video conferencing
    Group discussions
    Live chats
    Socialising with course mates
    Capturing content from the web and keeping it for reference

    The challenges and solutions-
    As the market is growing it is also becoming clearer that the systems that were being used for the management of education can no longer support the needs of the day. The education providers of today are stuck with a bunch of software that do the job well, but only for the purpose they were built for.

    We have to be looking for an integrated solution that works efficiently across the departments and the whole learning ecosystem. If you want to get into online education and training, you have to start looking for a system that includes all components like CRM, HRM, SIS and of course the LMS. This will improve efficiency and reduce costs.

    Klaspad LMS is not just another learning platform. It is a learning ecosystem with inbuilt ERP, CRM, HRM, SIS and takes collaborative learning to a new level of
    interactivity.

    LMS for learners
    Online teaching is not just about having a bunch of videos, power points, pdfs
    and exercises. E learning for us means giving you a better experience than
    the classroom. Engage socially by using our ‘Lives online’, express yourself on our ‘Blog’, chat with your course mates from across the world, collaborate using whiteboard and interact using live video conferencing. Most of this is available on mobile phones also through our apps.

    LMS for teachers and instructors
    If you are a teacher, trainer or want to conduct and deliver online courses and
    share your knowledge with the world, Klaspad is the solution. You simply create an account with us and upload your courses for free. We even can help you with your content development. You can add power point presentations, videos, images and pdfs as resources and then create various types of exercises to monitor students’ progress.

    LMS for education and training providers
    Klaspad gives education providers opportunity to take student and teacher interactivity to a new level through sharing and collaborative functions that were
    never available before. The learners can use interactive content and test their progress with an optional service of engaging with the mentors through emails, chats,
    interactive white boards, document sharing and video conferencing.
