Using course completion reminder features to make sure no one misses your training

With so much training to keep track of, course completion reminder features can make life much easier for learners and managers. But they’re often underused or forgotten about. In this blog, we’ll examine how to use course completion reminders to ensure that none of your learners miss their training.

As more organizations are held accountable to new and expanding regulations, participation in compliance training has become increasingly business-critical. Recently, we’ve seen the debate around major tech companies’ use of data lead to calls for greater regulation of Silicon Valley, and more rigorous training of staff at these businesses.

For many organizations in highly-regulated sectors, though, compliance training has long been a key part of company strategy. That’s partly because the repercussions of employees failing to learn and understand regulatory requirements can land businesses with hefty penalties.

Integrated learning ecosystem: webinar Q&A

Our recent webinar, ‘The integrated learning ecosystem’, was hosted by David Wentworth, Principal Learning Analyst with Brandon Hall Group, and Bill Mastin, NetDimensions’ Senior VP. The webinar explored ways to meet the huge challenge of making different learning technologies work together.

During the webinar, David spoke about how organizations increasingly want to integrate solutions such as microlearning, simulations, gaming and video. However, Brandon Hall Group’s 2018 Learning Management Technology Study found that most solutions receive poor satisfaction rates for integration with other systems.A photo of a woman in an office looking at examples of an integrated learning ecosystem

Skins and skinning: 3 ways LMS configuration will enhance your learning success

Skins are a great way to optimize the look of your learning and increase engagement. This NetDimensions blog explores this LMS configuration feature.

The ability to change and enhance the appearance of your learning is a major advantage for your L&D team. Yet some systems still make it difficult to achieve a level of LMS configuration that makes your interface and courses truly look and feel like yours.

Fortunately, leading LMSes allow you to design interfaces that motivate learners to repeatedly revisit and explore your learning programs. One of the best ways to ensure your learning provides attractive, intuitive layouts that guide great learning experiences is through skins.
