Most companies today understand the need and benefit of providing comprehensive and ongoing training to their employees. Corporate training and eLearning have proven to improve worker and company performance while enhancing employee engagement and overall job satisfaction. In fact, the development of talent has emerged as a key differentiator in today’s business world.
To make corporate learning and development (L&D) more effective, learning executives tend to rely on learning management systems (LMSs) that offer reporting features as these data and analytic tools can provide an overview of learning usage and the overall success of your training program.
Ad Hoc Reporting in Corporate eLearning
Ad hoc reporting refers to the creation of dynamic reports, offered in real-time, on an as-needed basis. Empowering eLearning administrators with ad hoc reporting tools allows them to answer important questions regarding the activities of the corporate training program as they occur.
Some of the important information ad hoc reporting can provide to eLearning administrators can include the number of:
Newly enrolled students
Students registered in a particular course
Students who have completed a particular course
Quiz passes and failures
Ad hoc reporting can also provide views regarding recent student activity and logins. It can also provide important information around compliance and other time-sensitive courses.
Some of the benefits of ad hoc reporting for corporate eLearning include:
Reduced Burden on IT Staff
The self-service nature of ad hoc reporting allows for the creation of reports process by system administrators, eliminating the need for IT staff or other department involvement in the process. This saves time and money while empowering eLearning administrators.
By not requiring involvement from other departments in the reporting process, ad hoc reporting allows for the fastest possible turnaround of customized reports, in real-time.
The nature of ad hoc reporting is in providing administrators with an ability to create customized reports, on-demand. This level of flexibility allows for the capture and reporting of specific data elements to review and analyze specific parts of your corporate eLearning program.
