How mobile devices can transform your learning

Knowledge-building on the go and improved retention are a couple of the big benefits mobile devices can bring to your learning. In this blog, we’ll touch upon some of the sectors in which mobile learning is revolutionizing training, and highlight a few of the great advantages it gives you and your team.

At their worst, mobile devices distract us from work and take the blame for shortening attention spans [1]. At their best, they dramatically enhance the way we work and make almost all aspects of training easier.

Used wisely, mobile devices are a powerful tools, whether you want to improve collaboration in the creation of eLearning courses or give learners just-in-time compliance information on the other side of the world.

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.

A single yet significant consideration for your next cloud-based LMS

This blog looks at the differences between single-tenant LMS systems and multi-tenant LMS systems and why NetDimensions’ solution is more secure.

As you switch out your legacy LMS for a cloud-based LMS solution, you must investigate the real estate and terrain that comes with every offering. Everyone has different needs and expectations when it comes to the place we call ‘home’ – and the same goes for an organization’s network infrastructure (or learning program ‘homes’).

Much like brick-and-mortar construction, the process of configuring cloud software architecture starts with careful planning. For most organizations, it becomes prohibitively expensive to alter blueprints once basic elements are in place. A good place to start in choosing your cloud-based LMS is deciding between a multi-tenant or a single-tenant solution.

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.
