E-learning interventions must be hosted on a Learning Management System (LMS) to track completion and learner scores.
The LMS enables instructors/facilitators to create and deliver training materials to a geographically disparate learner base from a centralised location, where the business can monitor performance and participation.
We use an open-source Learning Management System (LMS) called Moodle. With this tool, we can address various activities to ensure blended learning across several dimensions such as information transfer, learning assessment, communication and interaction, and content creation.
There are several advantages in using Moodle as LMS:
- Centralised learning management
- The training and performance of staff can be managed and tracked
- The use of a central LMS can lower training costs in terms of instruction, downtime, travel, and accommodation
- Staff can be motivated and feel empowered when given the responsibility for their own learning
- Staff have online access to their learning material anytime, anywhere
