As organizations across various industry spectrums get accustomed to workflows that are powered by technology (AI, blockchain and IoT), they must not only understand the new solution strategies but also have efficient taskforces to handle these computational marvels. Many firms are deploying learning management systems (LMS) to bring clear routes of education to their employees. These magnificent platforms allow for the identification of individuals that require training, and in turn, ensure that the staff member has the skill set to control and operate the many work floor processes at business centers.
Presently, it has become vital for companies to dispatch learning programs that further enhance staff members knowledge to run parallel to business goals. With LMS, all the various employee data used within an organization for training purposes can be accessed from a single point, and the information can be stored in an organized and secure way. This makes it easy for HR to decide which individual is best suited for a particular job and whether they require further training. It also creates effective education environments and allows for reduced stress and elevated motivation amongst employees in the training programs.

The challenge was to integrate more than 2,000 staff members located across four states, prior to implementing Blackboard LMS, the client had relied heavily on field training.
The inefficiency of the education program led to the client approaching Blackboard to formulate a solution that could help them surpass all their learning issues. The team from Blackboard came onboard, and initial testing of a streamlined version of the LMS was started, amazed by the brilliance of the platform, the client decided to introduce its entire program online via Blackboard Collaborate. It allowed for the technical training to be provided to individuals that are more adjusted to the modern digital world.

Since the modules are available online, the individuals in training programs have continuous access to the data, and this enables them to repeat classes they may not have attended.
