LMS Portals provides our clients and partners with a cloud-based, multi-tenant Learning Management System (LMS) that allows you to launch and manage private corporate training and eLearning environments on-demand. LMS Portals is unique among LMS platforms in that it not only allows you to create a unique online learning experience for each of your corporate training audiences, it also offers an embedded course building system.
In working with the LMS Portals course builder, you can repurpose existing training and marketing content in various formats, including video (MP4, YouTube or Vimeo), PDFs, Word and Text documents, images, and more.
Building Courses in LMS Portals
The process for building corporate eLearning and training courses in LMS Portals is simple and straightforward and incorporates the following steps:
Gather Your Training Materials
When you decide on a course you want to build, the first step is in gathering relevant content you can use for the course. Your company may have existing videos, documents, images, and other electronic content that can be repurposed as training materials. Gather the files that can add value to your new course.
Build the Course Structure
Today, corporate eLearning is driven by the concept of microlearning, which allows users to learn and digest training material in small chunks. This approach has the added benefit of allowing users to accomplish their training in smaller segments as their schedule allows while enabling them to move to specific learning topics on a need basis.
Add Content to Each Section
Once you break your course up into logical sections, you can decide which pieces of training material can best support that section and add them as Lessons. And while LMS Portals does not limit the number of Lessons you can add to each section, best practices dictate that you do not make each segment too long, so that users can logically break up the learning process by section, if they need to.
When possible, it should not take a user more 10-15 minutes to complete a lesson and move on to the next lesson or section.
Another best practice is to include quizzes to ensure learner comprehension. For example, you might include one quiz for each section and set a minimum passing grade the user must achieve in order to pass the quiz and ultimately complete the course. LMS Portals allows you to include any number of multiple choice quizzes and provides the opportunity to explain correct answers to learners to enhance understanding and comprehension.
The LMS Portals platform includes administer tools for onboarding users onto any specific portal and into the courses that are relevant to them, given their specific job role or some other criteria. The system also allows you to create Groups of users to streamline the process of ensuring that groups of students are enrolling into and completing the courses that are relevant to them.
Monitor and Report on Learner Progress
The LMS Portals embedded analytics engine allows administrators to create and share customized reports regarding the engagement, progress, and success for individual and groups of users. These reports can then be shared with other corporate learning stakeholders.
