Over the past decade or so, corporate training has migrated from a predominantly in-person driven industry to a preference for eLearning-based training. As this shift has evolved, an increasing number of learning management system (LMS) vendors have appeared in the marketplace. And while there are many factors that can be considered when choosing an LMS platform, scalability is often one of the most critical.
In choosing a scalable LMS, you can help ensure that your company can stay with that platform as your user count increases over time. Company growth, mergers and acquisitions, and new strategic partnerships are all factors that can contribute to the need for a scalable LMS platform.
At LMS Portals, we provide our clients and partners with a SaaS-based, multi-tenant LMS that offers scalability in various ways:
The LMS Portals platform was designed with a multi-tenant architecture, allowing you to launch a dedicated online training environment (portal) for each of your unique training audiences, both internal and external. This logical separation of your training audiences allows you to deliver customized training experiences, but it also ensures data separation for security and analytics purposes.
When working with high volumes of users, administrators can save time and streamline their program management efforts by dividing users into separate groups. This allows you to deliver training curriculums based on similar roles and responsibilities within the organization and establish group level communications and analytics reviews.
Rapid Course Development
As you onboard a wide array of users to your training program, the course and curriculum needs become more varies. The LMS Portals platform includes a rapid course development engine that allows you to repurpose most any type of electronic content (videos, PowerPoints, PDFs, documents, SCORM files, and more) into highly engaging courses, in minutes.
Learning Paths are groups of courses that must be completed in a specified order. The use of learning paths in the LMS Portals platform helps to provide structure within your training program by ensuring users are taking the courses they need (in the order they should take them) to support learning objectives. The use of learning paths becomes more powerful as user counts grow.
At LMS Portals, we have curated a library of 140+ ready-made courses, covering most every area of corporate training and employee development. Having access to this content helps ensure that your company can instantly meet the demands of most any training topic.
The LMS Portals platform supports three methods of onboarding new users to a portal. You can choose to have users register themselves using the portal sign-up page, or an administrator can register each individual user. But for high volumes of users, you will want to leverage the platform’s bulk registration process.
