LMSs - Finely Focused Tuition
by Logan Smith
The first important question is, why think about a Learning Management System at all? After all, there are plenty of other options available and, let’s be frank, a training DVD (for example) would be a fraction of the cost. It’s not that modern DVDs are poor quality recordings of dull old lectures either. With effective teaching methods and rich, immersive media they can offer excellent tuition. Excellent, that is, as long as your needs conform to their content. The thing a DVD can’t give you – and nor can fixed off-site lessons or even expensive, top-of-the-range boot camps – is teaching that responds accurately to an organization’s own particular objectives. However good off-the-shelf alternatives are, they were conceived and designed to give the widest range of answers to the widest group of customers. Content can never be tailored to address individual requirements.
