As the business world continues to increase in complexity and challenges, organizations practices are changing in an effort to keep pace and remain competitive, making corporate training more necessary than ever. The best corporate training programs will not only help your employees to understand your company’s evolving practices, they will also address areas that include leadership, customer care, communications and other areas that can create a competitive edge for your organization.
While some companies still find it difficult to justify the effort and expense required to implement and manage corporate training programs, the most successful businesses in the world have made the implementation and ongoing development of corporate training a priority. In fact, studies have found that companies that offer training for their employees can expect to see higher revenues on a per employee basis, along with an overall improvement to the company’s bottom line.
The Shift to eLearning-Based Corporate Training
In years past, most companies that implemented corporate training and employee development programs relied on classroom-based, in-person sessions as the foundation of their program. But more recently as cloud-based technologies have continued to evolve and workforces are increasingly remote (a trend that was in place even before COVID-19), online learning or “eLearning” has emerged as the preferred approach to corporate training.
Not only is eLearning better suited for today’s dispersed workforces, but the eLearning approach is more cost-effective as it removes many of the significant expenses associated with in-person training. And eLearning adds an element of convenience and flexibility that is not possible with classroom-based training as it allows your employees to conduct their training activities at a time and place that is convenient for them.
Learning Management Systems for eLearning-Based Corporate Training
The core technology that supports and drives all types of eLearning programs, including corporate training and employee development, is a Learning Management System, or “LMS”. An LMS is the application that is used to build, deliver, manage, and track eLearning-based corporate training programs.
While most LMS platforms today offer integrations that allow you to upload or link to pre-built corporate training courses, some provide embedded tools that allow you to build and deploy your courses from directly within the LMS platform itself. The inclusion of these development tools can streamline your development and deployment process and make it easier to make changes to your online courses “on the fly”, thus creating a simpler experience for administrators while enabling a more cost-effective solution.
LMS Portals: Course Development Software for Corporate Training
LMS Portals provides our clients and partners with a cloud-based, multi-tenant learning management system that allows you to launch and manage multiple, private eLearning environments (portals) on-demand.
Each portal you launch includes embedded course development software that enables an efficient and streamlined simple process for building and delivering powerful corporate training courses.
For each course you build, you can create logical structure and re-purpose existing training and marketing materials in video, HTML5, PDF, document, or image formats. You can also include quizzes at any interval you desire and set minimum passing grades.
The LMS Portals platform also includes a Course Library feature that allows you to save courses you build in the platform for future publishing in any of your deployed portals. The Course Library feature allows you to build a course once and deploy it over and over.
