Training and development of employees is a frequent topic in companies. Companies increasingly understand that investing in developing team skills is critical to adapting to market needs and even anticipating trends.
With the advance of technology, the way of teaching and learning has changed. Online education is growing in Brazil and the expectation is that these numbers will increase even more. According to the Higher Education Census of 2016, from Inep, while the face-to-face teaching had an annual drop of 0.08% in enrollments, distance learning had an expansion of 7.2%.
In this scenario, using LMS is very positive. DOT has developed a platform for learning experience, StudiOn, which goes beyond a traditional LMS.
Read on and learn the benefits of applying it to your corporate education strategy.
What is an LMS platform?
LMS stands for Learning Management System. In a simplified way, we can say that it is a platform that encompasses all the stages of acquiring new knowledge, from the access of the students, through the control and monitoring of the learning process, to generation of reports and issuance of certificates.
Companies are already aware of this trend: according to Capterra research, 93% of CEOs will maintain or increase the training and e-learning budget.
To learn more, read on and check out 4 benefits of using StudiOn, a platform for learning experience.
1- Reduced costs
An EdTech training ensures more agility in the learning process, reducing the time of dedication and increasing productivity. There are many used strategies: games, videos, simulators, learning tracks or podcasts. All this allows a more dynamic learning.
The strategies should be developed individually in each company, so that it fulfills the outlined goal. Along with a specialized team of educational consultants, it is possible to define the most effective way to provide knowledge building.
The advance of the internet and consumption of content via mobile devices is clear. In Brazil, a FGV (Getulio Vargas Foundation) research shows that the country has surpassed the mark of one smartphone per inhabitant: nowadays there are 220 million cellphones in use here.
Education must follow this trend. The internet allows students to keep up with the contents from where they are, allowing them to study when it’s best for them. An LMS platform should be mobile friendly and ensure a perfect user experience.
3- Faster learning
With microlearning strategies, which is nothing more than offering content in learning pills, the process of absorbing information becomes more flexible and effective.
With shorter videos that synthesize the most important information, student engagement increases and collaborators can study whenever they have the time or whenever they need to.
4- Following current trends
Microlearning, gamification, augmented reality, virtual reality … these are just examples of tools that can be customized in an LMS platform to optimize the learning process.
Research shows that traditional training does not achieve the expected ROI and is not as effective in helping to retain students’ knowledge.
Preparing your team to act in this scenario turns your company into a business reference and makes it, now, a company of the future.
