GDPR LMS requirements: We’re prepared, are you?

The GDPR comes into effect on May 25 2018. Here at NetDimensions, we’re busy getting ready to meet GDPR LMS requirements. But how ready are you?

If you’re reading this, then you probably know that the GDPR is a major update to European data protection laws. The GDPR will affect businesses around the world given its very wide reach and applicability. It regulates when both ‘data controllers’ and ‘data processors’ are allowed to process personal data, and which safeguards need to apply to such processing.

The GDPR is coming - do you know your GDPR LMS requirements?

Many organizations impacted by the GDPR will already have their preparations well underway, but reports suggest many others are still unsure what steps to take to become compliant.

As an L&D professional, it’s critical to analyze and capture your organization’s approach to learner data management and storage. You should also review your LMS to identify the features and functionality that will help you meet GDPR LMS requirements.

Managing the learner journey with LMS notifications

LMS login notifications can be a great tool to keep your learners on track as they embark on their learning journeys. Find out why in this blog.

What happens when learners fail to complete learning on time?

  • If it’s compliance-related learning, they could be putting your organization at risk of serious penalties.
  • If it’s safety or competency-related learning, they could be putting themselves and their colleagues at risk.

Even if the learning isn’t one of the critical scenarios above, falling behind on training requirements can mean employees aren’t developing the skills they need to thrive in their role, or meet business-critical standards of performance.

LMS login notifications are great for busy professionals

As a learning professional, you’ve invested valuable time and resource in creating learning that will help develop and nurture your employees, as well as keep them compliant with industry regulations.

So how can your LMS help maximize that investment?

LMS notifications are just one key tool that can help keep your learners on track.

If you don’t have a modern LMS at the moment, how are you currently sharing your eLearning?

  • Hosting your courses on a cloud-based web server?
  • Still using a legacy LMS but in the most minimal way possible, as the set-up doesn’t match your current requirements?
  • Using a mix of all of the above, with your courses scattered in various places?

These solutions are OK if your key objective is simply delivering courses to your learners.
