How An LMS Makes Learning Interactive

Digital materials, devices, and the internet have made it possible for students to access their classroom only by using their smartphones. A Learning Management System goes a step ahead to make such learning experiences engaging and interactive.

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” A Learning Management System (LMS) does just that. It makes students become active participants in the learning process. The system ensures that the student attends the learning process actively by converting mundane study areas into engaging learning models.

As a result, they make the learning process an interactive session that the student enjoys and looks forward to.

Here are 5 ways an LMS can make the usually boring and drab learning process into one that is highly interactive and engaging.

1. Gamification

Gamification is a common feature across the top mobile and web apps of today. Simply put, gamification is the inclusion of a points-scoring system, levels or similar game-like elements that will encourage the user to do more with the app. Mobile and web app developers use gamification to keep users hooked on their products or services. Gamification in an LMS helps students turn their boring sessions into game levels that they want to win.

State-of-the-art Learning Management Systems have gamification integrated into them as one of the core elements. They nudge the student to do several tasks voluntarily, like updating their student profile, complete a higher level of a course, badges for completing learning sessions, social learning, leaderboards for high scores, and much more.

2. Personalization

In a densely crowded classroom, a student is easily lost as a number in the attendance roll. That lack of attention plays a key role in diminishing the learning ability of a child. An LMS can pitch in here to offer a truly personalized learning experience.

It can encourage the student to learn further, as well as help them stay on track until course completion. The personalization comes in several forms including student avatars, course structure, the pace of the course (on demand, one to one, or scheduled) and so on. Such a personalized approach to learning can have a positive influence on the overall development of the child.

3. Performance Tracking

Amidst all the time spent learning new concepts, crunching math problems, and figuring out science facts, how does a student know where they stand in terms of real learning? Real learning is difficult to measure without a proper platform. It needs a test, a well-designed yardstick against which the knowledge of the student can be put to the test.

To simplify the task of progress measurement, modern-day LMSs come with performance tracking systems. They give students detailed as well as a bird’s eye view of their progress. From progress rates to average scores, the time spent on each score and the ranking against leaderboards, they arm students with detailed data for further improvement.

4. Parent Interaction

Parents, local guardians, and other stakeholders in a child’s learning and development need an independent way of checking on the student’s progress. The LMS comes with predefined user roles and privileges that parents can use to interact with the child’s teachers. The parent's involvement in the learning process and progress monitoring translate into a disciplined performance by the student.

5. On-Demand Learning

Some students have an introvert attitude, as a result of which they resign themselves to a self-imposed cocoon. Their personality prevents them from asking out questions in a classroom. As a result, their learning curve begins to decline in the longer run.

A Learning Management System can remedy the situation by giving the student a digital means to connect, collaborate, and communicate with other fellow students and teachers. It spares them from the physical environment of a class and puts them in an on-demand learning environment. The LMS gives them the ability to learn at their convenient time and space. This makes the learning process highly interactive than it would be otherwise.

LMS - A Futuristic Way Of Learning

The education industry is on the verge of a transformation. Digital technologies coupled with the internet are moving towards a future where learning will be more interactive and engaging. Learning Management Systems are placed right at the center of this transformation.

They make learning less of a chore and more of a fun-filled activity for students. From the details mentioned above, we can be certain that an LMS can make students more inclined towards learning new things.
