STRS105 Is a Learning Content Management System Right for You?
2:15 PM - 3:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: Strategic Solutions Stage
Modern learning and development (L&D) organizations make it a priority to improve employees’ skills and enhance knowledge—not yearly or monthly, but continuously. These successful organizations have moved away from disconnected, rigid courses and instead enabled flexible, multipurpose, agile learning content. By ensuring their learning content is rich, dynamic, and personalized, they provide their teams with the tools to drive their own learning. As a result, the value of every content asset is maximized and production is streamlined. But many organizations have struggled for years to find a way to enable this dynamic learning. Often, learning content is stored in silos, making it difficult to find and reuse. Reviewing and updating courses is time-consuming, creating derivative courses is problematic, and version control is a nightmare. Distributing learning content in multiple formats (SCORM, PDF, EPUB, HTML, XML, etc.) requires painstaking rework. Sound familiar?
Adopting a learning content management system (LCMS) can help you resolve these challenges by removing content silos; enriching your content assets to make them more discoverable and reusable; streamlining the course development, editing, and review processes; ensuring courses meet quality standards; and enabling team members to easily publish learning content across multiple channels. Join this session to learn how the right LCMS can benefit your organization—and your employees.
In this session, you will learn:
- What a learning content management system (LCMS) is
- The difference between an LMS and an LCMS
- How an LCMS can help you to better store, enrich, discover, assemble, reuse, analyze, and disseminate your learning content
- What an LCMS does and how it works
- Whether an LCMS is right for your organization
Novice to advanced designers, developers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VPs, CLOs, executives, etc.).
