Corporate training has evolved over the years and Learning Management Systems (LMS) too have been evolving to keep up with the needs of modern learners.
Here is how the LMS has evolved according to insights from Josh Bersin.
- In the 1990s, the LMS market exploded as companies wanted the LMS to host eLearning courses and act like an online university. But these LMSs were not user-friendly.
- In the early 2000s, the focus was on talent management and the LMS was redesigned to integrate HR information systems, performance management, and corporate talent programs.
- In 2010, came the era of continuous learning and LMSs were built as experience platforms that could enable learning at the moment-of-need and allow access to videos on demand.
- 2018 was a gamechanger as digital learning grew big time. Learners wanted anytime, anywhere learning and this was done through microlearning modules accessible on mobile devices. The modern LMS had arrived!
- Currently the focus is on learning in the flow of work. With learners having less time to spare for learning, LMSs are required to assist learners learn quickly, apply the learning, and get back to work.
