The truth is that e-learning platforms (or LMS, Learning Management System) are an essential tool in all companies and educational institutions today. The truth is that the education sector continues to modernise, seeking to adapt to the new needs of the market. Today’s educational technology offers a flexibility and accessibility unique to date, allowing a greater volume of information and resources to be managed in much less time.
E-learning platforms promote global learning
One of the key objectives of e-learning platforms is to provide training managers with a customisable virtual environment. In this way, all the functionalities that simplify and make easier the teaching and learning process are included, together with the management of the training in a global way.
The main advantages of the e-learning platforms are
Customisable and easy-to-use platforms
Without a doubt, if you have a good e-learning platform, you will be able to personalise your LMS so that it can cover your needs or the needs of your company and/or educational institution.
Including your corporate image or having it in your language will be some of the basic functionalities that will make teaching easier.
LMSs usually do not need an instruction manual, as their interfaces are usually intuitive. The user can create and edit its content without any further concern. However, it is always interesting to have previous information or a guide in order to get the most out of the learning platform.
Accessible and flexible
Without a doubt, e-learning platforms will provide great flexibility and accessibility for students. In this way they can continue learning regardless of where they are. As it is educational software that is also in the cloud, it does not require prior installation of an app or program. It can be accessed from any device and operating system. This allows for exponential cost savings.
All the educational resources will be in one place
The truth is that in e-learning training, large volumes of information, resources and courses are handled. However, this is simplified to a greater extent thanks to the platforms, as they allow for comprehensive management, facilitating administrative management: registering/canceling students, managing content, courses, communicating easily and in real time, extracting reports, statistics, etc.
Integrated virtual classes
E-learning training platforms usually have functionalities to include virtual online classes, so they can receive classes from anywhere.
Although the truth is that not all LMSs allow for virtual classes, those that do offer them provide greater flexibility, as students can attend their classes from any location (just like teachers).
Without a doubt, e-learning platforms allow for considerable cost savings, time optimisation and increased profitability.
Creating tailor-made courses allows for personalised training
Usually, learning platforms work thanks to SCORM content. These are educational contents that are structured under standard specifications that make them compatible with all LMSs.
LMSs are compatible
Without doubt, the compatibility of formats is one of the basic rules of SCORM content. Thanks to them, any content can be uploaded to any e-learning platform that follows the standard model.
Ease of content creation
The most advanced LMS platforms on the market also allow for the creation of online content that can be incorporated into courses. In this way you can also create activities, tests and different evaluations.
