If there is software that has witnessed tremendous adoption in the past few years, it is Learning Management System (LMS). Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, many educational institutes shifted from traditional classrooms to virtual classrooms to mitigate the impact of learning loss. The technology that made the shift much easier was none other than the learning management system. According to Educause, over 77% of higher education faculty strongly agree that an LMS is critical to their teaching.

We need to bring learning to people instead of people to learning. – Elliot Masie.

However, the concept of a learning management system is not new. The first LMS was developed and utilised in 1924 when Sidney Pressey invented the first “teaching machine” that resembled the typewriter with a window to handle multiple-choice questions.

History of LMS

Until before the pandemic, an LMS was being used by corporate organisations to train their employees, clients, and business partners, and it was not a common tool used in regular schools. Instead, most educational institutions relied on “physical resources” to manage their learning activities. The LMS software gained traction when the pandemic struck because most schools were forced to shift learning online to ensure students’ education did not suffer.

Given the vast benefits that a learning management system offers, more and more schools today are adopting this new way of learning and teaching. However, many educational institutions still view an LMS as a luxury item rather than a necessity. Consequently, the traditional or basic learning management system they might be using has the following drawbacks:

A state-of-the-art learning management system is the perfect solution to all these problems. It provides an indispensable set of features that gives your school an edge over your competitors by enhancing the overall learning and teaching experience at your school.

Features of LMS

Let’s look at some features that differentiate an ultra-modern LMS from an ordinary one.

Improved Accessibility

The best learning management system software is highly accessible, both in terms of accessibility on various devices and easy access to learning materials. 

Most leading-edge LMSes are cloud-based, which means each stakeholder can easily access it on any device simply by entering their login id and password.

Moreover, as the learning content is not spread over different drives, students and teachers can access it whenever and wherever they want.

Integration with Apps

The perfect LMS is not a standalone system. It seamlessly integrates with applications that students, teachers, and parents use. All school stakeholders should be able to access the required data through their respective apps. The integration should be smooth to save time, and sync should ensure that each user has the most up-to-date data.

Data Security

Apart from accurately managing and syncing all content and data required for delivering students a smooth learning experience, an ideal learning management system for schools should maintain 100% data security. It must have appropriate mechanisms to keep malicious elements at bay to keep school data safe and secure. This eventually helps build each stakeholder’s trust in the system.

Track Progress and Performance

The best learning management system allows you to keep track of students’ and teachers’ progress and performance. With inbuilt reporting and analytics tools, teachers can identify underperforming students and offer them supplemental resources to improve their performance. Likewise, school owners can identify and reward their top-performing teachers.

Easy Implementation of Teacher Training Programs

Another great benefit of using a well-functional learning management system is that there is no need to print eLearning material while training your teachers. Instead, you can conduct the entire teacher training program online with a central repository of learning materials. Thus, an LMS is a highly environmentally friendly tool that brings efficiency to all administrative activities.

Increased Scalability

A well-designed learning management system allows you to manage your institution’s operations seamlessly. It is able to serve a large number of users, as well as handle a large amount of data without breaking down. Thanks to the capabilities of today’s servers and cloud technologies, schools can monitor and adjust capacity according to the usage of LMS, ensuring both efficiency and reliability.

Personalisation is the Key

An ideal learning management system allows schools and teachers to personalise the learning material to cater to the specific needs of learners. Giving students control over what appears on their dashboards delivers lessons per their interests. In addition, personalised learning ensures every student plays an active role in what is being taught and takes challenges suitable to their learning level.

Whether it is an online, offline, or hybrid mode, an avant-garde learning management system has something for each stakeholder. It is an integral tool for teaching and is no more a luxury but a necessity for schools. The best thing about an LMS is that it helps keep the learning going, even in adverse situations.
