Topic: It’s time to rethink the LMS
Presenter: JD Dillon
Date: Monday May 22, 3:00 – 4:00 PM
Do you like your LMS? If you’re like a majority of L&D teams, you probably don’t. Why has the LMS fallen so out of favor with the people who use it as their go-to technology on the job? Some platforms haven’t kept up with the pace of technology. Others are administrative burdensome and make L&D pros’ jobs more difficult. Ultimately, the biggest problem is the experience. The LMS is a manifestation of an antiquated notion that learning happens at a specific place and time. Workplace learning doesn’t look like school, but the LMS is still based on an academic model. This gap is what ultimately brings the value of the learning management system into question and creates frustration for L&D and the employees we support.
It’s time for L&D to break up with the LMS. In this session, we’ll show you how companies like Toys “R” Us, Southeastern Grocers and Kaplan have changed their relationship status with the LMS in order to provide improved learning experiences for their employees. We’ll walk through the process for determining the value of your current LMS within the context of a modern learning ecosystem. We’ll demonstrate how alternative learning technology can enable continuous learning and provide clear value to your employees and stakeholders. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of your learning technology options and (hopefully) less reliant on the traditional LMS.
There’s no question that the LMS has become synonymous with corporate learning across small and large companies alike, and organizations are entrenched in it. But the reality is that many corporate learning management systems remain slow, hard to use, and fall short when it comes to improving employee capability and on-the-job behaviors that impact business objectives. There’s a lot of “wasted learning” taking place and it’s costing organizations millions of dollars every year.
Join David Wentworth, Principal Analyst with the Brandon Hall Group, and Axonify, as they explore some of the ways in which the traditional LMS falls short and new ways organizations should be thinking about learning and learning technology.
Axonify is excited to exhibit at the upcoming WERC 2017 conference in Fort Worth, Texas April 30 – May 3 . Stop by and see us in booth #708 and be sure to attend our speaking session: Improve Workplace Safety with Adaptive Microlearning.
Session: Tuesday, May 2 at 1:45 – 2:45 PM
Speakers: Marcus Presley, Senior Manager of Logistics Compliance & Safety from Walmart and Christine Tutssel, SVP of Strategic Initiatives from Axonify
Improve Workplace Safety with Adaptive Microlearning
Learn how Walmart Logistics is leveraging adaptive microlearning to create a safety culture in their organization. The technique delivers training that is short, entertaining and socialized, reducing employee resistance while embedding key messages. This daily learning approach yields real, lasting changes and safety improvements through a reduction in accidents for significant cost savings.
Retail associates. Forklift drivers. Food service employees. Plant workers. These deskless workers have one thing in common: They’ve all been underserved by L&D. Yet, these are the employees who are at the greatest risk for workplace injury, interact directly with your customers, own the manufacturing and distribution of your products and, ultimately, have the power to make or break your business—one decision at a time. Traditional approaches to learning and antiquated technology, combined with the complicated working conditions, have perpetuated the idea that it’s just too difficult and expensive to support these employees. But that’s no longer the case.
In a marketplace defined by talent, L&D has the responsibility and opportunity to provide continuous learning and development to all employees, including the sizable deskless workforce, to ensure business survival.
