December 13, 2016: Learning Management Systems – Developing an All-Access Platform for Your Training
December 13, 2016
A learning management system (LMS) is an electronic education platform designed to serve content, conduct assessment, and facilitate interaction among learners. An LMS can be used to reach and teach a wide breadth of learners without the expense and coordination of live instruction. Besides cost savings, LMS can often simplify administration, documentation, and tracking processes in order to offer a complete picture of each student’s progress. This webinar will present the planning, development, and management perspectives of using LMS to deliver training to a wider audience. Presentations will cover curriculum and testing design, audience analysis, needs assessments, and other elements to consider when selecting an LMS, as well as the challenges and benefits of using LMS to regularly deliver training.
