LMS

How often have we heard our clients lament about the main function of the Learning Management Systems (LMSs) – that they are largely concerned with the management of learning rather than the process of learning itself? Very often, if you ask me. However, after having seen a number of LMS implementations across various industries, I am of the opinion that an LMS can be smartly used to deliver effective blended learning that focuses primarily on the process of learning.

Organizations now expect their trainers to use this new technology with traditional classroom teaching practices to give a blended learning experience to their employees. When used in a structured way, blended learning can allow organizations to mix different teaching materials and tools into an effective, integrated learning experience, giving learners an opportunity to move from passive learning to active learning.
Below mentioned are the 5 tips for managing blended learning effectively through an LMS.
