Benefits of an LMS
Using a learning management system has some big benefits over the old fashioned way of learning.
- Consistency of learning
Delivering your course through an LMS keeps the content centralized so all the students have a single source of content, instructions and questions. No excuses of old books or last years material. Everybody is up-to-date.
- Easy tracking & reporting
With an LMS you can easily track the progress of your students. You can see at a glance who finished the course, who is half way and who didn't even start studying.
- Create engaging courses
You can easily combine text, images and video in a learning management system. Which you cannot on paper. Trough the use of more engaging material your students will keep their focus and learn more.
- Better results through engagement and gamification
Because the learning material is more engaging, users will learn more. And using gamification in an LMS keeps your users interested and challenged.
Other advantages of a learning management system
A learning management system has even more advantages:
- Keep your course up-to-date
Is there some knew knowledge? A change in the content? Or do some parts of your course need some more in-depth material? Just add it for you next course.
- Easy distribution
You can distribute the course content just as easy as sending an email. Just upload your users in the LMS and invite them by email. Or copy-paste the url of the course and send an email through your mail client.
- Cost saving
This actually depends on which LMS you choose. Do you buy one of our expensive and cluncky competitors, or do you choose our fairly priced easy-to-use LMS? It's cheaper than paper!
