Mobile LMS: The Ultimate Checklist For Your Training Company

Have you ever wondering how much time you spend in a day sending emails to your students? You may think it’s only a couple of minutes per email, but this can quickly add up to a considerable amount of time, that you could be spending better by doing something else.

Mobile LMS Guide For Training Companies: How To Take Your Training Programs To The Next Level With The Right Mobile LMS
Find out how your training company can use a mobile LMS to provide an excellent learning experience for your students.

1. Automated Communications

Sending student emails can be tedious and repetitive as well, as you’re essentially sending the same emails over and over again, with only a couple of data points being edited.

To ensure you’re making the most of your time, it’s vital that your mobile LMS supports automated communications. This means that you can template all the emails you frequently send to students and set trigger events for this, so they know when to send.

Instead of wasting lots of time sending all these emails manually, you can simply set them up to send when you need them to and let your mobile LMS take care of everything for you.

2. Reporting Functionality

Reporting is vital for every part of your training business, and if you decide to offer eLearning to your students, then you need to be able to keep a close eye on that side of your business as well.

Having a built-in reporting system with your mobile LMS will mean that you can easily report on any data related to your eLearning offering without having to move the data into another tool or system, which will save you time, effort, and cut the risk of human error.

3. Custom Branding

If you want to ensure that your mobile LMS reflects the rest of your business and matches the branding of your website, then you’ll want to be on the lookout for an LMS which will allow you to customize it to reflect your branding.

This means you can do things like add your logo, change the color scheme to reflect your brand, and change the language on some regions of the mobile LMS to ensure your customer gets a consistent experience while they are training with you.

4. Supports Different Learning Types

As well as supporting eLearning, you should also be on the lookout for a mobile LMS which will support different types of learning which you may want to offer your students which also have an eLearning element to them.

This includes blended learning and virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT), which give students the benefits of eLearning as well as the benefits of other learning delivery methods to ensure they get the best learning experience for them.

5. Different Languages

When shopping around for a new mobile LMS, it’s vital to make sure that the system will support different languages. The more languages you can offer your students, the larger your pool of potential customers will be, so it makes sense to consider this a key feature when LMS shopping.

6. Running Assessments

If you are offering eLearning to your students, you’ll want to be able to run assessments from within your mobile LMS to ensure the whole process is as seamless as possible for both your students and your team.

This may be mini-assessments throughout the course as well as final assessments at the end of the course to provide evidence of a student’s final result.

7. Certificate Issuing

As well as assessments, you will want to ensure your mobile LMS gives you the ability to issue certificates to students. The ideal scenario is to look for an automated certificate option, as this would cut your manual work down even more.

Much like automated communications, you can trigger personalized certificates to be sent to students once a pass mark has been registered against them within the mobile LMS.

8. Selling Courses Online

Selling your courses online is a hugely important part of offering eLearning to your students. To ensure you make the process as easy as possible for your potential customers, you’ll want to make sure that students can browse a course catalog, pick the course they want, secure their place on the course, and pay for their place all in one smooth motion.

For this, you will need to make sure your mobile LMS offers integration with your website, so it will store all the details of the sales for future reference, as well as automatically updating all the course details on your website without your team having to worry about duplicate data entry.

9. Learning Paths

Learning paths are a great way of mapping out a particular learning journey for students. If you have lots of courses which are connected or a few pieces of training which need to be completed in a certain order to receive a qualification, learning paths are a great way to map this out.

You can set up specific paths and then students can book their place on the training and get a clear idea of all the training they need to complete, and the order in which it needs to be completed.

It also makes it really easy for you and your students to track their progress at any time.

10. Feedback Options

If you want to receive feedback on your training, it’s important to make sure your mobile LMS has the capabilities to support this. Ideally, you should be able to create custom feedback surveys which you can then set as an automated communication which will be sent to students at a certain point in their learning journey.

You should then be able to pull all the responses back into your reporting system so you can analyze the data and make decisions for your training in the future.

11. Content Options

When you are deciding on a mobile LMS, it’s important to consider what type of content they support. Will you have to buy off-the-shelf content? Can you add videos, quizzes, and other interactive elements? Will it support you creating custom content? Make sure you pick the system that supports the content you want to offer so you can provide your students with the best experience possible.

12. Gamification

If you’re interested in making learning a bit fun and a bit of a challenge for your students, then gamification will be something you want your mobile LMS to offer. This could mean things like providing online badges or posts they can update their social media with when they hit certain checkpoints during the learning process.

13. Integration

If you currently use other tools and systems in your business to manage your learning, then you’ll want a mobile LMS which gives you the ability to integrate with those other systems. This means you can manage all your training information from one central system and still get all the individual functionality of the separate system. It also saves your team time and effort as they won’t have to move data between systems, or waste time logging in and out of multiple places.
