Multiple assignments and your LMS: many jobs, one login

In today’s fast-paced flexible environment employees may hold two or more distinct jobs within a single organization. It’s essential for these employees and their managers that their learning management system (LMS) can efficiently link these different assignments, as well as keep track of learning for compliance requirements.

Multiple assignment examples

Multiple assignments are found most commonly in organizations with multiple locations in close proximity, so they are typically more prevalent in densely populated countries. The industry verticals where multiple assignments are crucial include:

  • Healthcare – Nurses or doctors working in more than one hospital or healthcare practice. For example, Alex is a nurse and works in Hospital B on Monday and Tuesday. He logs into the LMS and completes his training. Then on Thursday and Friday he goes to Hospital M, so he chooses the other location in the LMS. The branding changes, the learning path changes and requirements change.

Manage a global workforce with a multi-language LMS

Is your learning management system (LMS) truly global? In today’s fast-paced global environment, multilingual companies are challenged to deliver training in multiple languages to their global workforce.

Multi-language handling is a must-have for multinational corporations or any company managing learning and performance for a global workforce or a global partner network. Preparing content that targets a diversified audience or an audience that is multilingual is becoming more and more common.

LMS integration: why are APIs so important?

The role of the Learning Management System (LMS) in today’s environment is primarily to manage training administration, classroom training, scheduling of courses, mandatory compliance training and certifications. But the world of online learning goes way beyond the LMS – there are other parts of the learning infrastructure that are being handled by other systems.

It’s essential that your LMS can integrate easily with other systems to make sure your organization is ready for the world of digital learning. Most organizations expect their LMS provider to help them connect with other systems but there is not a lot of LMS integration actually occurring.
