Learning Management Systems (LMS) have been in existence for many years, particularly within Higher Education where a platform such as Blackboard or Moodle would be used by colleges and universities to deliver online courses to learners based anywhere in the world, complimenting traditional on-campus delivery. The cost of licensing this software, or for running the server technology required to run the platform, would be met by the revenue generated from being able to enroll large numbers of people onto these courses. In the past, it has been these costs which have deterred smaller businesses from capitalising on using Learning Management Systems within their own organisations for training and development, as the potential return on investment would ultimately be too small.
But now, we operate in a world where IT costs can be much more affordable thanks to the availability of cheaper hardware, which has become even less of a burden for organisations that encourage workers to ‘Bring Your Own Device’. On top of this, many businesses take advantage of Software As A Service (SAAS) which, with the growth of cloud technology, has removed the need to maintain or upgrade hardware as an on-going cost and instead delivers IT services as required that are accessible and operate fully online.
In the LMS market, such a trend now also exists. Many organisations take advantage of Learning Management Systems to facilitate staff development fully online. For many companies, the LMS is a business critical platform, tracking performance and ensuring all staff are provided opportunities to develop important skills.
And so to meet demand, a number of service providers now exist who can offer LMS platforms to businesses, typically at a cost per user, or through fixed period licensing. We have tried a number of these services ourselves working in education, and we believe that many of them are clunky, lack visual appeal and are far too feature filled to be understandable or easy to manage for a typical business. This is the reason why we set up Discover eLearning, because we discovered one particular LMS solution which is under-reported, but delivers all the key features that many businesses demand at a cheaper cost, and that is LearnDash LMS.
We are proud to be the UK’s trusted developer for LearnDash LMS, having used the platform as a base to develop bespoke learning management systems for various companies across the country. Our service is tailored to meet the requirements of training departments for organisations that are big or small.
