Learning management systems give schools an edge over their competitors
So how do you assess whether your school needs an LMS? You might argue that your school already has some kind of management system and it gets most of the jobs done. A basic school management system gives you basic lesson plans and timelines in which to implement them. However, most traditional learning management systems have the following drawbacks:
- Lack of quality control
- Lack of focus on delivering assured learning outcomes for students
- Lack of engaging elements in content delivery
- Lack of right tools and infrastructure for teacher training and support
- Lack of parents’ active involvement in their child’s academic journey
The perfect LMS takes care of the above problems and offers a whole plethora of solutions over and above these problems.
In this article, we will try to understand the three most important ways in which an LMS can give a school an edge over its competitors:
LMS provides improved accessibility
Most LMS are now cloud-based. This is a huge advantage for students and teachers as the learning content is not spread over different hard drives and devices. All the e-learning materials can be stored in one secure location which reduces the risk of losing information significantly. What’s more, every member of your learning management team (which can be the teachers, principal, and the parents of the child) can easily access them. Hence LMS is a perfect fit for online collaboration amongst multiple stakeholders who are involved in designing and implementing learning at your school.
LEAD LMS for school allows such flexibility of access to learning materials and makes the learning process seamless whether it be in an online, offline, or hybrid mode.
LMS provides the best tool to track learner and teacher progress and performance
An LMS gives schools and parents the ability to track learner progress and ensure that the learners are meeting their performance milestones. For instance, if a student is not able to successfully grasp a particular module, you can offer them supplemental resources to improve their performance or learning behaviors.
Most LMS have inbuilt reporting and analytics tools that can be used to pinpoint areas of strengths and weaknesses of students. This allows the stakeholders to understand where to divert their focus.
LEAD learning management system assists teachers in imparting effective lesson plans with the help of Digital Learning Content, Physical Reader & Workbooks, Learning activities, E-books, Regular Assessments, Practices Quizzes, Personalised Revisions, Home Practice, Live Classes from a LEAD Expert Teacher, and National Competitions.
LMS makes teacher training programs easy to implement
A great advantage of using a well-designed LMS is that you can avoid instructor travel, as well as completely forgo the printing of e-learning materials while training your teachers. The whole teacher training program can be conducted online with a centralized repository of e-learning materials.
For example, if your school partners with LEAD, your teachers will be trained via LEAD’s ‘3C’ approach:
- Connect by building a community and providing a safe learning environment
- Coach on latest pedagogy, digital, and communication skills
- Create career opportunities for the community across partner schools & in LEAD
In summary, LMS for school is the next big thing in the education industry and it is here to stay. From cost-effectiveness to better learning outcomes, there is just no beating a well-designed LMS.
