Infographic: 5 Benefits of using an LMS for professional development
With the right toolset, you can offer an engaging and efficient program
How can you make your professional development program more efficient and more effective? A learning management system (LMS) provides the tools needed to assign, monitor, track, and report on all the learning activities of your faculty and staff. Here a few of the ways that an LMS can impact the delivery of a professional development and training program.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Efficient communication: Communicate across borders. Instructor communities and allow sharing and discussion of effective practices.
- 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.
