The range of uses for a Learning Management System, known as an LMS, can vary from each organisation. We’ll discuss the use cases for a Learning Management System for Health and Social Care but it’s worth noting that, an LMS is used to help track, manage and monitor Learning and Development. Typically, an LMS can be used by anyone in an organisation, however these different users will have different needs and requirements from an LMS.
Learners can use an LMS to complete a range of learning activities such as e-Learning, read policies and procedures, and review content submitted by their organisation. They can also book themselves onto events and face-to-face workshops.
Some LMS’ have the ability to differentiate ‘Managers’ and ‘Admin’, depending on the size of an organisation and the purpose of the LMS. ‘Managers’ can use an LMS to manage their immediate teams, track their team’s compliance and produce reports to evidence all e-Learning within their teams.
An Admin should have the ability to fully configure an LMS, to align it with the needs of an organisation. This is often done from the beginning at the onboarding stage, by ‘Admin’ users adding the exact learning pathways and journeys for specific job roles.
We’ve seen that a Manager is often a site manager whilst an ‘Admin’ user is often involved at the beginning and does not have any later down the line, unless a ticket is raised with the training provider directly. We’ve seen that in bigger companies, ‘Admin’ users are based away from the direct location, such as a head office.
