LMS is what LMS does!

Data is the new fuel. It is hard to believe that it is so because we can’t touch it, we can’t feel it but it is there. We consume it every day. While I am writing it and while you are reading it, we both are consuming it. You don’t believe me, do you? If I am able to convince you today after you are finished with this article that online education is nothing but a huge repository of data mostly free and open-sourced, you have already consumed enough data which has convinced you to consume more. Human mind is never satiated, isn’t it? 

So, tomorrow if you decide to switch over to a learning management system aka LMS , my job is done. Does it sound like another marketing strategy? I know but hold on until I tell you the perks and I guarantee that you won’t be able to resist. 

Let me start by the definition of what exactly a learning management system is. It is a platform which is like all-in-one notebooks you used to have in your childhood. Remember? But, it is definitely more than just blank papers. It is a platform where you can have interactions with your teachers, mentors, peers and all those faculties who could potentially help in your learning process. It doesn’t stop at that. Suppose you cannot manage to attend classes when they are held because of anything not in your control. Be it anything. It is not a matter of concern in the least. Now, you have access to recorded sessions which you can access whenever you want to. This is technically referred to as an asynchronous type of learning methodology. Not only that, just take another hypothetical scenario to understand it in a better way. Suppose, the other issue at hand is that you cannot manage to complete the entire course in one go or maybe you want a shorter one to sync it with other important tasks where your presence is urgently required. Guess what? Sorted. Courses on an LMS can be curated as per the requirement of the user, the learner. The main objective is to maximize learning outcomes, the rest is history. 

The new-age technology powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), etc is such that you don’t even have to worry about any sort of language discrepancy. What that means is that even if you are residing at a place where the language is in stark contrast to what the course is based upon, it won’t hamper a little bit on how you are going to understand it. Wondering how? The course would get automatically translated in the language that suits you based on your geo-location. Yes, it is possible! 

When conventional learning methods failed to 

account for the learning outcomes, LMS(s) came as a miracle. Now, the teachers as well as students can check their performances in real-time through various tracking tools that are embedded in the system itself solely created for the very same purpose. The end result, productivity is maximized. I am not talking in mid-air. The figures justify my claim. They tell you how the submission rate has increased quite remarkably after the students adopted to LMS(s). The reason behind this is an exponential increase in self-efficacy among the students. When a free hand is provided to them in terms of how they are going to learn, what they are to learn and at what pace, there is this psychological sense of control that develops which generates self-discipline as the stats project. 

Moreover, LMS pools in various resources and strategies to make learning a fun experience. Just look at the gamified versions of courses where you earn badges, coins, starts etc to make sure that the desire to perform better is never extinguished. Nowadays, social media is also getting connected with the systems so that the peers can easily connect with each other. This makes learning a social experience too. 

Learn at your own will. AI powered systems are now automatically curating for you the courses you should go for depending on your user data that you unknowingly feed by logging into them. Now I am assured you won’t doubt what I said earlier that data is the new fuel. 

 

So, what are you waiting for? Get started. It is by you, of you, for you.
