The world of training and learning management is continually growing and changing. For years, employees learnt what they needed to learn for their positions by attending face to face training with a trainer like myself or simply just learnt on the job. This was typically managed manually, via email, on paper or using Excel spreadsheets! 

When Learning Management Software came along, it revolutionized the way that employees could be trained and the way trainers could manage and deliver training. Trainees could now access training online; complete certifications and assessments, as well as register for face-to-face, on the job, CPD and classroom based training via the web or intranet. Trainers could now automate training delivery, access on-demand reports and effectively manage pathways and plans.

Learning and Training Management has been available as a module in elcomCMS for a number of years; and we’re proud to have a great number of clients successfully managing their learning and development programs through the elcomCMS.

Last year I was excited to become the Product Manager for the elcomCMS Learning Management solution. Having seamless integration between CMS functionality and LMS functionality has always interested me; as it provides a unique and effective way to offer an outstanding and personalized training experience. (I was also excited because this was my opportunity to help take the elcomCMS learning management solution to the next level!)

After extensive research, gaining feedback from clients and of course drawing on industry experience; I worked with the product and development teams to refine existing functionality, improve user experience and introduce new functionality to the LMS solution.
