- [Oliver] Technology has revolutionized the ways we're able to deliver educational content and training. Learning management systems provide a centralized platform, allowing users to access content and resources related to instruction, even when outside of the classroom or office. Learning management systems allow you to add and manage users, create, curate, manage, and deliver learning content, administer assignments and assessments which can be submitted and graded online. They allow for improved communication and timely feedback, as well as the ability to track progress and analyze learning data.
Utilizing a learning management system can be a great way to reduce the cost of training and education while making the instructor and learner's experience more efficient, effective, and flexible. Through most learning management systems, content can be accessed from any time, anywhere that you have an internet connection across a wide variety of devices. If you're responsible for educating students, training employees, or delivering any type of instruction, a learning management system is a powerful tool that can likely save you a ton of time and help improve your results.
