Corporate learning management system software fulfils a number of key roles that are not covered by educational LMS, which may lead to the success or failure of your training program.

FREMONT, CA: The eLearning industry has long concentrated on LMS as a solution for educating students in traditional settings, but business LMS is starting to get more attention. A corporate learning management system, while similar in most respects to traditional LMSs, is an application for an entirely different audience, trainers and experts in eLearning need to keep that in mind.

Corporate learning management system software fulfils a number of key roles that are not covered by educational LMS, which may lead to the success or failure of your training program.While many of these roles are determined not by the system itself, but by how the organization's learning strategy is constructed, it is still very important to know the differences between educational and corporate LMSs in order to make the right decision for your business.

So what makes the LMS so different from the normal LMS? Both software types do the same thing in general, provide training content to learners, and enable you to track those items. But while educational LMSs just need to be capable of keeping track of grades and possibly identify areas where students are struggling, corporate LMSs need to do a lot more.

Businesses require not only track employee training, identify weak areas of training, give certification and track certification) and manage staff time, but also empower employees to learn more and learn what they want. While on-board and general training is normally required, businesses need to have additional training that is both optional and attractive.

This is a major differentiator for corporate learning management software. While students may enjoy extra learning, this is not the role of an educational institution. They are much narrower in their focus on content than they should be on business. Employees need to be able to grow up. And those who benefit from optional training should be rewarded for their time and effort.Smart enterprises know that offering growth opportunities is one of the best ways to ensure the retention of their most talented employees.
