A structured e-learning program in the workplace benefits all levels of employees as well as the business itself.

Introduction Learning Management Systems (LMS) benefit a wide range of organizations by providing an online framework to: • Deliver educational content • Identify learning goals • Track progress Studies have shown that e-learning is both cost- effective and convenient, which has led to its adaptation by many organizations. Training can be provided to large numbers of learners who can access courses according to their schedules. Businesses can custom design training programs to meet specific needs.

Primary advantages of an excellent Learning Management System over pre-prepared content: • Flexibility • Opportunities to provide customized courses • Structured, systemic platform that incorporates: o course content delivery o student registration and administration o training event management o curriculum and certification management o skills and competencies management o skills gap analysis o individual development plans o reporting & training record management o ability to author software for courses

The benefits of a learning management system go beyond the bottom line of a business spread sheet: • It is embraced by employees who see it enhances their work life. • More people work remotely and even those in the same departments can seem isolated from each other due to travel or physical location of offices. • Employees have access to a shared community that can greatly enhance far more than their job skills.

Following are the top 10 ways e-learning can enhance a work environment: 1. By providing an online community for shared learning in the workplace. 2. Through the quick and efficient creation of discussion forums and assignments related to the real-time learning needs of business. 3. By incorporating a variety of text- and image-based learning tools to convey important information. 4. Can be provided in a hybrid format to meet the needs of all learners in organizational development.

5. By highlighting the achievements of employees, departments and the total organization. 6. By helping companies notice and react to knowledge gaps in real time so they can respond and in turn assist employees. 7. Integrating skills to be learned by employees and staff in multiple departments by offering common core modules and department and position-specific modules. 8. It is one of the fastest ways to create an Internet savvy and technologically confident workforce in this technology era.

9. Managers can use e-learning to help employees by studying course metrics to help serve them better. 10. Offers the opportunity for a continuous learning experience. DD Download the full whitepaper here
