As eLearning continue to emerge as the preferred approach to corporate training and workforce development, corporate training administrators increasingly seeking out technologies that enable them to create a customized experience to support their various audiences and unique training needs. And while much of the conversation regarding custom eLearning development options and technologies revolves around content, a newer learning management system (LMS) architecture is available to enable the fast and easy deployment of custom eLearning environments.
Multi-Tenant LMS for Custom eLearning for Corporate Training
An LMS is the core technology that supports all types of eLearning programs, including corporate training. In years past, the only available option for an LMS was a single tenant architecture. Under this model, the entirety of the LMS application and its supporting hardware is dedicated to a single eLearning environment and audience. Given this, single tenant systems provide very little in the way of customization for varied audiences, as all learners are sharing a single instance of the LMS.
In contrast, a multi-tenant LMS provides an architecture and deployment model that allows the administrator to launch and manage multiple, customized learning environments, all from a centralized console. In this way, the administrator can quickly and dynamically create new eLearning environments (portals) as new audiences and learning needs develop for the organization.
With regards to corporate training and workforce development, so use case examples include:
Third-Party Training Organizations
For organizations that monetize their training and consulting expertise through eLearning, a multi-tenant architecture allows them to launch a customized eLearning portal for each of their client companies, thus offering each a unique and branded online learning experience.
Channel Partner Training
For organizations that rely on their channel partners to help them drive sales and revenues, eLearning can provide the perfect means for training these partners on your company’s products and services. In this case, a multi-tenant LMS can be utilized to provide each partner with their own customized eLearning portal.
If your company sells products or services that call for any amount of customer training, a multi-tenant LMS would allow you to create a unique eLearning portal for each of these clients. You can even generate a customized certificate upon each learner’s completion of training.
LMS Portals: Customized eLearning Development for Corporate Training
LMS Portals offers a cloud-based, multi-tenant learning management system that allows our clients and partners to launch and manage multiple, customized eLearning environments (portals) on-demand. Some of the benefits the LMS Portals platform offers in support of customized eLearning include:
Each portal you launch can have its own branding elements, including logos, images, titles, favicons, and more.
Courses and Learning Paths
Because each audience can have its own unique learning needs, each LMS Portal environment includes its own learning categories, courses, and learning paths to allow those students to achieve their specific learning objectives.
Each portal includes its own user onboarding engine to generate customized introduction messages and other communications with learners.
Messaging and Collaboration
In offering a “closed” eLearning experience, the LMS Portals platform enables internal messaging and collaboration among students to support their online learning experience.
Each portal contains its own isolated set of data, allowing administrators to capture and report on specific metrics for that learning group.
