Be Realistic – Get your head INTO the clouds!
Cloud software and cyber space are dominant forces driving our society, and mass innovation and cutting-edge technology now dominate the workplace. Having your ‘head in the clouds’ is now a practical way of conducting business, with up to 85% of global enterprises operating some form of multi-cloud strategy in their organisation.
This blog will focus on how the cloud revolutionises the way society can learn through the cloud, specifically the Learning Management Software (LMS) provided through the Cloud.
Learning Management Software
Cloud software provides businesses with the ability to access a range of core business applications to more efficiently manage their organisation. A LMS is one of these very applications, delivering a range of educational courses to users over the Internet. At its core, a LMS is the software that powers all e-Learning capabilities. Some examples include online training material, modules and quizzes provided by organisations and universities. There are a wide variety of benefits associated with the adoption of LMS, some of which include:
Low start-up cost and faster deployment
LMS software eliminates the need to build your own training software. However, it can take months to build the training material, videos and modules for the e-Learning experience. All of this comes with the software.
The LMS is provided through the Cloud, which means the application and its content can be accessed from anywhere in the world as long as you have an Internet connection. This means you can take you learning experience with you anywhere; you are not limited to the school or the business’s physical location. This also allows employees to control their learning experience and educate themselves at their own pace.
LMS software provides the ability for managers to customise the learning experience provided to employees. In a corporate environment, admins can specify which modules are delivered to specific employees to tailor for their individual needs and requirements. Most of the pages within a LMS can also be customised for a more personal and engaging experience.
More storage space and scalability
Operating through the cloud means all data is stored on the vendors servers instead of your hard-drives. This frees up a huge amount of space and processing speed to help your computer operate faster and more efficiently, and reduces the risk associated with local technological failures.
External maintenance and update
The LMS is maintained by the cloud software provider. They run regular updates, ensuring the latest educational content readily available to all users. This is powerful feature of cloud technology as information is constantly changing and out-dated information can have devastating results.
This digitally advancing age has had a huge effect on the societal structure of our world, shifting the way we live by digitising almost everything we do. LMS is one of the latest advancements in digitisation, and it is imperative that managers adopt this technology in order to remain competitive and shift with the changing work-life balance demanded by employees. Operating through the Cloud is not just the future of computing technology, it is the present.
