Online learning has blossomed as organisations transition into a new era of digital business. Convenient access to learning allows individuals to tailor their training schedule according to their personal needs. Webinar tools like Zoom or Teams make it easier than ever before to connect with others from across the globe. As we continue to operate in a digital environment it is essential the tools and platforms we use are continuously growing.
Some training requires face-to-face interaction between the trainer and student. This is particularly true for practical skills where application is essential. The Learning Management System should facilitate blended learning through organisational tools like a class register, venue booking, shared calendar or even supplementary video material to aid the lesson.
eLearning offers the freedom to access training at the students’ convenience, however without the use of proper motivational tools the students may soon lose interest. Gamification plays a pivotal role in motivating the students by creating digital incentives which can be adapted to appeal to a variety of personality types.
Tools like Zoom or Teams are great for distance communication, but require LMS integration in order to truly shine. Being able to monitor and measure lessons through the system is invaluable, this is especially true when compiling reports on student or system behaviour.
