Transforming Corporate Learning

It's no longer OK for a Learning Management System (LMS) to only provide organisations with data on how many learners completed a course, by when and to what level.

The LMS should now feature at the centre of a learning ecosystem – a close group of learning technologies that has a focus on the learning experience.

Learners today will easily turn away from tools and solutions that aren’t learner-centric. Above all else, they value the learning experience.

Modern learning ecosystems will include technologies such as:

  • LMS – as a system of record, access, flexible targeting
  • Learning Record Store (LRS) - individual record of learning achievements
  • API Connectors - HR, CRM, ERP, Payment gateways
  • Experience API (xAPI) for the capture of all internal and external learning (to the LMS)
  • Native mobile Apps – for the latest operating systems and device types

The list of learning technologies above, is not that long. The real key to the list is the inherent flexibility of those technologies. Combined they provide the organisation, and crucially the learner, with a new world of learning.

Social and collaborative learning is a given. The ability to record external learning is a must. Time and place independence, learning when it suits the learner, on the device in use at that time, is essential.

The notion that seems to apply at this point is that ‘learning will be something you just do’. It will fall back in the consciousness or awareness of day to day work processes. More so, as new and subtle delivery methods and techniques emerge.

For some time, learning and development (L&D) teams may have been seen to have lived on the periphery of the organisation. The new world of work and learning technology has them front and centre.

What does this mean for L&D?

It means that L&D teams will need to check their results regularly – learning analysis at every step. L&D will have a role organisational strategy, how it’s delivered, communicated and updated.

It means that analysis of learning outcomes, is key to understanding if the core strategy is correct, is understood, and is being executed.
