Today, almost every company around the world, regardless of size or industry, sees the value in providing corporate training to their employees. Effective corporate training is proven to increased your organization’s competitiveness, while serving as a powerful recruiting tool to attract new talent and help ensure they stay with you for the long-term.
And increasingly, companies are shifting their corporate training approach from in-person classroom-based training, to online learning, known as corporate eLearning. But the challenge for many of theses companies, especially smaller and mid-sized organizations, is in finding the time and talent to build the library of eLearning courses required for a comprehensive program, covering the many different roles and responsibilities across your employee base.
Fortunately, LMS Portals provides a fast, easy, and cost-effective way for you to build engaging courses.
LMS Portals for Corporate eLearning
At LMS Portals, we provide our clients and partners with a SaaS-Based, multi-tenant Learning Management System (LMS) that allows an administrator to launch and manage a dedicated eLearning environment (portal) for each of your unique training audiences. Each portal you launch includes a powerful course development engine that enables you to re-purpose most any type of existing content for eLearning.
Building a Course in LMS Portals Using Existing Content
To build a course in LMS Portals, you start by naming a Module- which is a section of a course. Each course you build can have as many Modules as you need to divide the course into logical sections. This makes it easier for employees to digest your training content.
Each Module you create can house any number of Lessons. A Lesson is a piece of content that delivers the actual learning.
LMS Portals supports a variety of content that you can re-purpose for eLearning.
Video content is considered to be one of the strongest content types for eLearning. This is especially true for difficult or complex pieces of training, as well as for any type of training that can benefit from a demonstration (product training, for example).
With LMS Portals, you can upload your videos for secure hosting on our servers, or you can link to existing video content on YouTube or Vimeo.
As a SCORM-compliant platform, LMS Portals allows you to upload or link to SCORM content to serve as a lesson within a course, or to deliver the entire course in one single file. In supporting SCORM content, LMS Portals opens your company up to a wide variety of ready-made (and often brandable) training content as SCORM remains the de fact standard for corporate eLearning.
You might be surprised at the volume of readily available content your company has in PDF format. Employee handbooks, relevant industry regulations, product manuals, and more are often saved in PDF format and can serve as valuable training content.
Like PDFs, many companies have an existing library of PowerPoint presentations. For example, your sales team may have a number of presentations they use to introduce your company and offerings to clients and prospects. And your Human Resources group might use PowerPoint presentations for employee onboarding and to ensure your employees have they information they need regarding company and workplace expectations.
Documents, Images, Websites, and More
In addition to these core content types, LMS Portals supports lesson content in the form of Word documents, image files, websites, and more.
Utilizing Quizzes and Assignments to Confirm Comprehension
As you build your courses in LMS Portals using the Modules and Lessons structure, you can also add Quizzes to test comprehension in a multiple-choice format. In addition, the Assignment engine enables you to more deeply assess comprehension by issuing open-ended questions or asking for files uploads to review employee responses.
The LMS Portals Corporate Training Course Library
Along with this powerful course building engine, LMS Portals offers a library of more than 140 ready-made courses covering most every aspect of corporate training and employee development.
