Learning management system trends to watch for

Expect to see a greater interest in talent management and personalized learning.

Expect to see a greater interest in talent management and personalized learning.

A learning management system (LMS) allows for information sharing between different parties, including employees and third parties, which in turn can improve learning, retention and engagement. Organizations commonly use learning management systems to streamline employee training, cut down on costs and ensure compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA's) OSHA standards, among other regulatory requirements.

Here are some of the top trends in interactive technology from eLearningIndustry.com. Learning management systems provide many of these popular features:

  • Mobile Learning: An increasing number both of employers and employees are emphasizing the importance of learning management systems equipped with e-learning capabilities. Support for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is also on the rise. Cisco's 2013 BYOD Insights report showed that 9 in 10 Americans are already using their smartphones for work purposes. Given this, learning management systems are poised to meet the needs of an increasingly mobile workforce. 
  • Talent Management: Another trend is the increased demand for reporting capabilities that identify employee strengths and weaknesses. This analysis can help employees as well as companies ensure that their training is targeting employees' needs. 
  • Personalized Learning: Personalized learning gives end users more control and direction over their instruction. Adaptive learning technologies, which can be modified according to users' needs and are a feature of learning management systems, will be increasingly sought after. 
  • Social Learning: Social learning facilitates communication and information sharing among users. Studies have demonstrated that users learn more through collaboration than through traditional learning alone. Another eLearningIndustry.com article suggests how organizations can use social media and online collaboration to strengthen employees' engagement with and retention of material.
