The need for corporate training, in the form of eLearning, is on the rise. As global competition becomes more intense and the corporate workplace continues to increase in complexity, more and more companies are launching corporate eLearning and training programs to help their employees excel in the face of these new challenges.
eLearning refers to the use of electronic technologies (typically, the Internet) to build, deliver, manage, and monitor all types of online learning programs, including online corporate training. The availability of more sophisticated and affordable cloud-based technologies, combined with increasingly remote workforces (a trend that was in place even before COVID-19), has made eLearning the preferred approach to corporate training for businesses today.
The core technology that supports all types of eLearning programs, including corporate training, is a Learning Management System, or “LMS”. Unfortunately, most of the LMS platforms available today offer a single environment—meaning all of your learners are sent to one, public site to conduct their eLearning activities. This approach does not allow the eLearning administrator to brand or customize the online learning experience based on the audience, thus prohibiting them from creating an optimal learning experience.
Multi-Tenant Learning Management Systems
A relatively recent development in LMS technology is in the availability of multi-tenant architecture. While a single tenant LMS dedicates the entire software and hardware infrastructure for use by a single audience, a multi-tenant LMS allows the administrator to “spin up” new instances of the application in order to create a private, customized learning experiences for each of your training audiences.
Multitenancy is particularly valuable for organizations that need to launch an extended enterprise corporate training program. It is also well-suited for third-party training and consulting organizations that want to offer each of their clients their own private eLearning portal on which to conduct their eLearning and training activities.
