As the EdTech industry becomes competitive by sprouting online training courses, how can your association continue to lead? The right learning management solution (LMS) can help your business gain an advantage and is a strategic business decision that can determine the success of your association. The LMS will help you to seamlessly access online training materials and extend the capabilities of your training programs. With so many LMS tools available, how do you choose the right one?
Associations have members from different backgrounds with varying training needs. You must be able to provide meaningful and impactful learning journeys for your members from various demographics. Your members should be able to access the training programs with little technical expertise. Some features to look for while choosing LMS are:
Association members look for continuous professional development through training and certification programs. To meet such demands, your organization must upgrade training materials and offer the latest certification programs, micro-credentials, and badges suitable for your members. Finding the LMS that suits your business model will help you deliver online learning to all members. With more than 200 million users worldwide, Moodle is named a leader by G2 for its market presence and user satisfaction. This open-source platform has a global community and supports customizable learning solutions. Moodle enables educators with technology to deliver online courses effectively. It is widely used by corporations, businesses, non-profits, hospitals, and societies that provide online training and education. Some reasons for the popularity of Moodle are:
When implementing Moodle, you need a technology partner to integrate the necessary features and host on the cloud. MRCC’s NetVidya is a Moodle-based state-of-the-art learning solution with authoring, distribution, assessment, reporting, and security capabilities under a single platform. If your association is looking for an efficient, transparent, and simple LMS solution, NetVidya can streamline LMS operations and increase learning outcomes.
One of the first questions you must ask when looking for LMS is how easily you can customize course content and effectively manage members of different needs. NetVidya enables you to segregate members based on location, interests, expertise, professional level, etc. You can quickly create distinct learning paths for your members. You can customize the LMS to include your organization’s branding, including style, logos, and colors. With modular architecture, NetVidya allows customization to add or remove plugins, themes, and other tools. You can easily create online learning material through a powerful course creation engine to develop interactive and engaging content using multiple resources. If you have established other systems, such as CRM, for your organization, you can integrate NetVidya readily.
You would want your LMS with preloaded e-commerce features when you sell online training programs and courses. NetVidya provides payment gateways and shopping cart systems so that you can efficiently distribute coupons and discounts to your members. The invoicing capability of NetVidya streamlines sales and marketing processes. Using your branded LMS tool, you can manage memberships, subscriptions, and more.
The LMS system must perform at top efficiency, whether you have 1,000 or 100,000 members. You expect your organization to grow, and the LMS system must be easily scalable. It must support personalized learning paths for all your current and future members without compromising on security or performance. NetVidya’s design clearly separates application layers, making way for scalable setups. It can be deployed on a single server or cluster of servers based on your unique needs.
Don’t you want to support members with different learning abilities across multiple devices? NetVidya presents an inclusive and accessible platform that all your members can easily access regardless of location, disability, device, or internet speed. It has a responsive design that also caters to the needs of lesser-abled members. Your members can also access training material offline from any device.
NetVidya follows WCAG 2.1 guidelines, ATAG 2.0 guidelines, and ARIA 1.1 recommendations, so it can be used with multiple assistive technologies like magnifiers, screen readers, keyboards, and more. With multilingual support, your members can get access to training material in their language, which will also amplify learning outcomes.
