When we think of a learning suite, we think of an all in one LCMS platform from which to train and test our employees, and it should also make learning easy, engaging, and accessible to learners. These platforms offer so much more, but they are not all the same, nor are they all beneficial to everyone, not even close. Let’s analyze the top 10 learning suites so you can understand what we mean.
EdApp is top of its class when it comes to the way information is presented to learners. It is mobile-first, so your learners will be able to access their courses anytime and anywhere.
Many learning suites aren’t effective because they can’t seem to keep learners engaged, but EdApp utilizes gamification techniques to engage users and couple that with spaced repetition throughout microlearning courses to boost retention of materials without overwhelming your staff with excessive presentations.
Edmodo is a learning suite geared towards facilitating distance learning for schools and districts. This LMS is an all-in-one communication, Zoom video conferencing, and collaboration platform that fosters community learning.
Teachers who use the Edmodo learning suit can engage their community of students and set up classrooms in a safe and free environment. In these classrooms, teachers can share materials and send messages to their students who can learn from anywhere.
This LMS platform is somewhat unique in its approach to eLearning. It offers support materials that companies can provide their employees returning to work after the coronavirus pandemic. These materials include guidelines that need to be observed when it comes to the procedures essential to keep everyone in the office safe.
JollyDeck will also help your company with onboarding and compliance training so that you can train your employees faster and help them avoid risks and stay focused. Even though it offers an authoring option, course creators who need results-driven templates to easily create useful courses for their workforce may have to look elsewhere as JollyDeck does not provide these.
Mintbook is a very comprehensive learning suite that is results-driven and is a great option for teachers, schools, and parents interested in an LCMS for their students. Mintbook offers comprehensive content from the primary level up to the upper secondary level.
These contents are available on an easy-to-use interface that has a gamified approach to learning. The content offered by Mintbook ranges from academic to vocational content. Even though the platform is really good, it’s just not in the workforce training business, so let’s move on to something that is.
The magic box platform is a digital publishing platform that also distributes through mobile channels. Content providers, authors, and publishers can create, sell, manage and deliver their digital work through this platform under custom-branded mobile applications and web pages.
The creators of MagicBox made the platform with the intention to make the creation and distribution of digital content easier while providing digital rights and compliance management in line with industry standards. All of this sounds very good, doesn’t it? Bet it would sound better if it were free.
Customization is very important in e-learning, and the Innform LCMS allows course creators to build an unlimited number of training courses, and that can include images and videos. SCORM courses are also supported, so you can upload them to the platform if needs be. After you have created your courses or uploaded the ones you want, the next step would be to create quizzes of varying types to ensure that your earners grasped the information, and you can do this here.
Innform also gives you the option to certify your learners with customizable certificates. What if you didn’t have to create all your courses? Wouldn’t it be great if they also had a world-class editable library from which you could choose courses? Someone needs to speak with them about this.
Let’s start by letting you know one important thing. Chances are, you are here looking for a learning solution for your workforce, so we should let you know that this one is not going to help because it is for schools and universities. It made our list because it has a free plan available, and it allows course creators to create and manage all activities related to learning, such as building online classes, financing collaborations, assessing students, and checking achievement all in one place.
In addition to all the features it has available, NEO LMS is utilized by schools worldwide, ranging from K-12 to higher indication institutions, because of its flexibility.
If you had trouble getting your previous LMS solution to work with your company’s intranet software, Forma LMS might be a suitable option for you. Forma LMS easily integrates with your existing intranet software, so that’s at least one headache out of the way.
This open-source LMS has a modern and responsive layout that your employees may not get bored of easily, and in addition to that, you can create engaging courses because the Forma platform supports SCORM multimedia, embedded videos, and HTML pages. Forma LMS even allows you to create webinars to inform and train your employees by integrating your current video conferencing system with the LMS solution. We must say, this platform has a lot of useful features, but the fact that it isn’t mobile-first is a huge drawback. Our employees want to train anytime, anywhere and we’re sure yours will too.
As you may have guessed from the name, this learning suite is used by schools to reach children who are engaged in distance learning. Schoology is used for students from kindergarten through to the 12th grade because the platform was designed with their learning needs in mind.
Different school districts are offered customization options based on district specifications, and the platform offers a communication collaboration option for teachers, coaches, administrators, parents, and students to all stay in touch.
As you are aware by now, there are many learning Suites out there, but not all are offered as SaaS. ProProfs is one of the few that are. It is a cloud-based LCMS that companies can use to easily create courses for individuals, groups, and teams.
ProProfs courses support SCORM, HRIS, 50+ and Tin Can integration. After you have built and dispersed your courses among the workforce, you can access reports and analytics to assess your team. ProProfs isn’t free though, so you should consider this before making a decision.
If you are interested in a learning suite for your workforce, it would be best if you use one that allows them to access targeted courses anywhere they are. It will also be useful if your learning suite utilizes gamification techniques to capture their focus and spaced repetition techniques to boost their retention of the information provided. The one SaaS LMS platform on our list that does all of these and more is EdApp. Check it out. You can thank us later.
