How can LMS reports improve the performance of eLearning?
An LMS has become a critical source of information for company employees and customers. But, a company can modify its usage in various ways to get better results.
This software generates automatic LMS reports for a company, but what can be done with it to make sure that it provides more result-oriented reports.
These are the following reports which can be included to increase LMS performance:
Microlearning: LMS analytics contain data about how users correspond to the software. The participation rates of learners are indicated in a variety of graphs. The management can then know whether the learners are taking an ample interest in the course, or if it needs to be modified through gamification to enhance their interests. Even microlearning bites attract learners because they are shorter.
Lack of content: An LMS administrator needs to compare, whether the assessments done after and before the course show some improvement.
If they do not, then the content has a knowledge gap that needs to be addressed. Definitely, in this case, the content is not as per the terminal learning objectives of learners.
The learners are unable to complete a course, and there are many reasons behind it. You can ensure that they can solve their issues by connecting them with those who completed the course. Whatever problems in the content are acting as a deterrent to the learners, they can be modified in the course.
However, there are some other sets of reports that are also important for LMS:
Course-based reports: The LMS administrator can ensure that he has performance reports about a certain e-learning assessment. If the report shows that a significant percentage of learners have not cleared the test, then there is some problem with the e-learning content or the assessment. So, either way, it is the duty of the SME, and such LMS reports can be sent to him. The course might be suffering from the problem of providing too much information to learners in just a single lesson.
Time tracking: Tracking the time the learners take to complete a course is also important. You can track the time spent on individual lessons. Whenever there is an anomaly in the time spent on lessons, this shows that the lessons have an above-average difficulty level. On the other hand, some lessons might be so easy that learners just complete them in record time, so it’s better to enhance their difficulty level.
Recording learners’ certification for compliance
The learners might also need to be updated again and a one-time certification is not enough. You should get regular LMS reports about the certifications completed by learners so that you can report to the authorities whenever any compliance-related audit is carried out.
You can also set up surveys to know how satisfied learners are, after completing the course. Therefore, a feedback survey lets you know whether the content or design of the course needs to be improved.
