Choosing the right LMS: Top priorities in 10 steps

Top priorities for effective learning

Effective learning is more than just acquiring knowledge and skills. It's about motivating learners to achieve their goals. In developing our imc Learning Suite platform, we take guidance from HR Analyst Fosway, who asked companies about their top priorities when it comes to enterprise learning and choosing the right LMS for them: 

  • Alignment: Learning content needs to be relevant to the learner's roles, skills gaps, or business goals.  
  • User experience (UX): A visually appealing 'look & feel' helps engaging learners. 
  • Customisation: Clever content curation caters to different learning styles and personalises the learning process. 
  • Learning journeys: Structured learning programmes help ensure learners progress effectively and efficiently.

A new LMS in 10 steps:

Choosing the right LMS for your organisation takes some thought and preparatory research.

  1. Plan out your training content and user interfaces tailored to your target groups.
  2. Make a record of your SMART project objectives – in concrete, measurable figures, so you can clearly monitor progress – and assign resources and responsibilities.
  3. Integrate the system into your IT infrastructure, such as your existing HR systems.
  4. Train your LMS administrators and develop content creation guidelines
  5. Put together a team of communication and data protection experts, IT specialists, professional development managers and representatives of the learning target groups.
  6. Conduct a test phase with a representative user group.
  7. Collect feedback and refine.
  8. Plan your internal communications and system tutorials.
  9. Promote the go-live with internal fanfare on the day.
  10. Gather continual feedback, monitor the achievement of your objectives, and adjust if necessary.
