Acronyms are thrown around the corporate world on a frequent basis. The main objective is sifting through them and truly delving into their definitions. For example, if you're like me, staying ahead of the curve and trends in the workplace is vital to creating an engaged culture that sustains growth. One tool that allows you to monitor and change your to culture is an LMS. So, what is an LMS? Learning management systems allow you to develop, assign, and track online learning. This is the trend in the workplace today, so you know there are plenty of them to choose from. In fact, this market is set to grow to about $50 billion dollars by the end of the business year, according to a Docebo report. Doing things online, on the go, and using a platform that is simple and easy to use and understand is necessary to stand out amongst the myriad of options available to you. In the article written by William Felton, "The Best LMS for 2016", he rates some of the most prominent learning systems available to universities, organizations, and businesses today.
So, how do you find what's great and not up to snuff? Look at a number of different things, according to William Felton. Pricing, fees, market segmentation, etc are all indications of the product that will be available to you. One of the biggest things I've found to be a factor to having companies complete things is if they take less than five minutes, are easy to understand and use, and are fun to complete.
