What’s the use of a learning management system (LMS), when your employees are not opening the portal at all? When your LMS is just a dumping yard for courses, how will your employees be motivated to access and utilize it? Leaving courses aside for a while, you need to set right your LMS first to bring back the missing excitement. You can do that by including gamification elements in your LMS. Learners are better engaged with game mechanics and this will make your LMS more learner-centric.
The ‘Learning Paths’ methodology for employee training was developed by Jim Williams and Steve Rosenbaum. A learning path is a sequence of learning activities that drives employees to become proficient in their jobs, in the shortest possible time. A learning path is a structure with chapters and various activities inside each chapter. These activities can include intermediate quizzes, videos, presentations, assignments, and text. In this blog, we shall explore why MOODLE (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is a preferred tool to create learning paths.
Do your employees require a constant reminder to log in to the LMS?

For example, the courses hosted there might not be really relevant to the employees or employees might find the interface too challenging to navigate.
Learners need to register to a learning management system (LMS) to access courses. Once they register, they can login from the generated account and get uninterrupted access to the assigned courses.
