The use of technology in designing and creating learning materials is accelerating. Course lessons are being ported to company Intranets at a rate not seen since the height of the Internet boom in the 90s. The driving force behind this particular growth cycle however, is not merely the latest advances in technology, but a need on the part of most corporations to drastically reduce their training budgets.
By using technology, companies can drastically cut the amount of time – not to mention the expense – it takes to develop and deploy an eLearning course. The newest technologies also allow companies to better manage the delivery of training to their employees. But technology alone isn’t a silver bullet when it comes to providing the best training to employees.
Companies need the right platform for delivering their eLearning program.
I’m talking of course, about the latest advances in Learning Management Systems (LMS) as a way to integrate and optimize technology within the eLearning environment. The biggest challenge that companies face when developing and launching eLearning systems is managing the delivery across the entire organization. TOPYX® is a Social Learning Management System that brings together efficiencies of delivering and managing a company’s entire eLearning program.
But helping companies to streamline the delivery of training is only part of the promise that the TOPYX Social LMS can bring. This new way of managing an eLearning program actually provides feedback within the system that allows training to be adjusted and customized to meet the individual learner’s needs. It also makes it easier to monitor the delivery of training. Some of the other ways that TOPYX can benefit organizations are:
- Helping employees to manage their professional development and certifications.
- Helping companies to align training programs with business goals.
- Helping subject matter experts to deliver better training.
- Helping teams to better collaborate.
- Helping training departments to better track the effectiveness of training.
We are at a point – both in terms of advances in technology and the need for efficiency – where companies must respond to the changing environment we face. The challenge for both the learner and the training professional is to make the best use of advances in technology with the ultimate goal being a better learning experience. One way to do this is through more efficient management of eLearning programs using a Social LMS like TOPYX.
