LMS benefits professional development for higher education


A learning management system is more than just a repository of professional development material. It provides the capacity to monitor progress, assign relevant content, set goals, and engage with peers on an on-going basis – anytime, anywhere with ease. Among the many benefits, using a single LMS for both education and professional development and staff training can save time, stress, and budgetary resources. Here are 5 others worth knowing.

  1. View of what’s happening. With all the course content, assessment, and interactions in a single place, learning can be reported upon and managed with a proactive mindset.
  2. Data collection: Easily run reports rather than having to pull data from multiple spreadsheets or multiple sources. This helps to ensure no learning is lost or untracked.
  3. Developing content: Because content is all in one place, you have access to all versions. You can see what worked and what didn’t work to improve content.
  4. Efficient communication: Communicate across borders. Instructor communities and allow sharing and discussion of effective practices.
  5. Pilot projects. Explore new ideas in a way that doesn’t have a drastic impact. You can control who sees what, who gets what. Then monitor success of new projects.
