All Learning Management Systems (LMSs) come with a set of features that may sound important. The good news is that the one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. The only features you need are the ones useful to meet your learning and training goals. So list the features that are most critical to your organization and look for an LMS that meets those needs.
However, here are seven common features to consider when you are evaluating your next LMS.
- Course creation and management: The ability to easily create and manage courses, including uploading content, setting up assessments, and tracking progress.
- User management: The ability to manage users and groups, including the ability to assign courses, track progress, and generate reports.
- Gamification: The use of game-like elements, such as points, badges, and leaderboards, to engage and motivate learners.
- Mobile compatibility: The ability to access and complete courses on a variety of mobile devices.
- Integration with other tools: The ability to integrate with other tools and systems, such as HR systems, CRMs, and video conferencing platforms.
- Customization options: The ability to customize the look and feel of the LMS, as well as the ability to add custom content and features.
- Support and training: The availability of support and training resources to assist users in getting the most out of the LMS.
