LMS Portals is a SaaS-based Learning Management System (LMS) that is uniquely architected to support corporate eLearning and employee development programs. The platform was developed using a multi-tenant framework to allow administrators to launch and manage a dedicated eLearning environment (portal) for each of your unique audiences.
In addition, the platform offers Group Management and Learning Path development tools to provide for a logical structure in your training programs.
The Benefits of a Multi-Tenant LMS for Corporate eLearning
A multi-tenant SaaS architecture is a framework that allows a system administrator to launch multiple instances of the application to support the diverse needs of multiple audiences. In corporate eLearning, a multi-tenant LMS ensures that each audience works within an eLearning environment (portal) that is customized to meet their unique learning needs.
Some of the elements that can vary between portals include:
While a multi-tenant architecture can benefit most any type of corporate eLearning program, some of the most common use cases include:
Extended Enterprise Training
For quite some time, most companies have understood the value of employee training to help ensure the viability and competitiveness of an organization. But in recent years, an increasing number of organizations have realized the value of expanding their training program to include external entities, such as customers, partners, and suppliers.
A multi-tenant LMS is ideally suited to this Extended Enterprise approach to training and corporate eLearning as it allows each of these unique audiences to work from their own customized portal.
Third-Party Training Providers
As the need for corporate training continues to grow, so too has the demand for third-party training companies that offer technology, content, and services to support these programs.
A multi-tenant LMS allows training companies to launch and manage a dedicated portal for each of their corporate eLearning clients.
Importantly, the LMS Portals architecture ensures that the data from each portal is stored separately from all of the other portals.
Naming Supervisors to Your Portals
Each portal you launch can have any number of administrators, known as Supervisors. Each Supervisor you name can be granted specific permissions for that portal, including the ability to:
Create and edit course categories
Create and edit courses and learning paths
Add users and groups
The Benefits of Group Management in Corporate eLearning
LMS Portals also supports Group Management in that the users on each of your portals can be segmented into any number of groups. Typically, a group is a set of users who work in similar roles and therefore share a common set of learning requirements.
After you have created a Group on a portal, you can “push out” the courses or Learning Paths that group should complete as part of their training.
The Benefits of Learning Paths in Corporate eLearning
A Learning Path refers to a group of courses that must be completed in a specific order. The use of Learning Paths adds structure to a corporate eLearning program by requiring users to complete prerequisite courses before they can “unlock” courses the courses that follow. In this way, you ensure that your employees have gained a foundation of knowledge before moving on to more complex courses.
