How To Make Your Learners Accept LMS

Different people have varied perceptions about the worth of e-learning software.  A learning portal becomes successful when learners utilize it with effectiveness.

To accomplish this, it is important to make the learners aware about the Learning Management System and the content to reap maximum advantages from the learning opportunity. If you want your learners to love your solutions, then you need to first market the Learning Management System among the learners.


Here are some strategies to sell your LMS solutions within the organization:

1)      Though a significant amount of budget is invested to implement learning management system and provide useful content to the learners, it is equally important to invest some bugs in training and educating the learners about its procedures, features, efficiency, the content it shares and the method to extract the learning material from the solutions. This training is suggested to be provided to both ‘the managers’, as well as, ‘the learners’. To encourage early adopters to train other less efficient mates on the technicalities is add on strategy to get maximum benefits of the LMS.
2)      A support resource should be there for the learners so that they can get quick assistance while accessing the learning management system. This would be more helpful during the early days. This resource could be from LMS provider side, or can be arranged within the organization. Learner can either call, or message or IM to list their problem and the support resource would be able to give the solution with minimum turnaround time.
3)      For your learners to accept the LMS, foremost thing is to sell the learning management system to the managers and departmental heads, because these are the leaders who can encourage their team members to accept this new mode of learning and solutions. If manager accepts the LMS, then entire team will accept it without much ado the learning management system.
4)      Learner dashboards are very successful in encouraging learners to utilize and score well, while learning from LMS. Dashboards display the scores of individual learners with the highest learning consumption, and the rewards netted by the learners. Our clients have seen incredible success in utilizing the dashboards to inspire their employees to learn more during the initial months after the LMS implementation.
5)      Use examples to explain different benefits of using learning management system to the learners. With the amplified flow of learning material, learners can decide upon their pace and refresh their learning anytime. This will increase the knowledge, and in turn, their work performance. Also, LMS will give fair analysis of learner scores and performance through unbiased reports and dashboards.

With the help of the aforementioned strategies, organizations can make the acceptance of LMS solutions easy for the learners and the management; this can make the experience of learning more effective and successful.
