AlphaLearn Learning Management System: Features Guide

There are many Learning Management System solutions in the market, and finding the one that is the best for your company can be an overwhelming process. If you want to select the best LMS software for your company’s training requirements, then you have to put in some research and effort. This is because you have to keep in mind elements like features, tools, whether the software fits the company’s budget, and if the training methodology will positively affect your employees’ productivity levels.

A Learning Management System is meant to make the lives of your employees and trainers easy, and this is mostly done by deploying online training resources and centralizing all the information on an international scale.

Listed below are some of the features that you must consider while choosing an LMS for your business:

 
lms brand integration

Effective Brand integration

Every element of training should reflect your brand image because this will create effective cohesion. Therefore, you will have to look for Learning Management Systems that allow the integration of logos, color schemes, and other important branding components. This will fall into the customization category, and here you have to check if they can be adjusted based on the learner’s needs if the trainer can add their watermarks and logos, and so on. All these things must be considered if they want to convey the brands' image accurately through online training materials. It also helps trainees develop trust in the brand which is essential at the early stages.

lms user interface

Easy and intuitive user interface

No matter how many features or tools you gather from your LMS software, they will all be useless if you don’t know how to use them. A Learning Management System should have an easy and intuitive user interface that will merge well with the team’s talents. For instance, you should look for dashboards that will provide you with an overview of your online training courses. This is an important LMS tool that you have to take into account when trying out a Learning Management System software for free or during the demo period.

lms support service

Support Services

A Learning Management System vendor should offer free phone support, and you should be able to reach them via email whenever you tend to encounter a problem with the LMS software; also, you will have to check if the support system is limited to just generic online FAQs. If you are unsure about the support services, then you should ask the vendor before purchasing the software about the assistance they offer. This is important because they may be helpful and quick to solve issues before purchasing the software, but what would happen once you invest in the LMS platform. So, it’s best to lay all the cards on the table, so that you don’t panic later.
