Just like the F/A-18 Super Hornet Tom Cruise flew in the movie ‘Top Gun,’ corporate content needs also can feel as if they go from 0 to 160 mph in two seconds!
One day you’re keeping pace and the next you could be pulling your hair out and ready to push the ejection seat button.
The need for more content could be a result of a big growth in your business, new regulations imposed or even from a merger or acquisition.
But, manually creating a training course is a demanding, time-consuming process.
Not exactly conducive when you need something fast.
And, even if you have a team in place, you can’t expect them to build a training course overnight. They still need to consult subject matter experts, gather the training material, set up the course, etc. The clock is ticking. And when the clock is ticking, mistakes are made.
Employee training is the key to increasing productivity and efficiency. But, without speedy content you’re left at a standstill.
Content is such an important part of an LMS so during the selection process this should be considered.
Before any big purchase, including an LMS, you need to do your due diligence.
Use your LMS selection team to go over all the scenarios where content will be important now and in the future. If custom content is needed, will you have the bandwidth to accomplish this?
This is just one of many questions you’ll need to think about.
Another area to consider when it comes to content is how easily it can be imported/exported within the LMS? If you need to add a lot of content quickly, it’s imperative that this process works seamlessly.
As you can see, when it comes to content, a lot must be considered before selecting an LMS. But, when you know your business and plan accordingly, you’ll realize the benefits in quality content that can scale quickly, improve learner retention, engage employees and fulfill training requirements.
