Why You Should Look Into Mobile Learning for Your eLearning Program

Did you know that the average adult spends two hours and 30 minutes a day on their smartphone? With 90 percent of this time spent on apps, adopting this platform to deliver educational and training content is an approach that makes sense.

Here is what you need to know about getting started with mobile learning.

How Amazon Web Services Works and Why We Use It

It's no secret that updating server infrastructure hardware can be costly and inefficient. For precisely this reason, more and more individuals and businesses are choosing to work with cloud computing services, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), to house their server infrastructure.

Read on to learn more about what AWS is, how it works and why choosing AWS to provide us with cloud computing services gave Lambda Solutions an edge over our competitors.

How LRS and xAPI Technology Helps Educators Understand Learners

Imagine if, as an educator, you had easy access to how well all of your learners were doing - what courses they passed, how long it took them to complete eLearning assignments, and how their performance had fluctuated over the course of their education.

Consider how analyzing such data could improve the quality of education that you provide. Now think about what kind of knowledge you could obtain if you had access to similar data from learners around the globe taking similar courses.

Why Businesses are Choosing Cloud-based LMS Over Self-hosted Solutions

The cloud is used by 90 percent of all businesses in one way or another. Half of businesses either exclusively rely on cloud-based solutions or have adopted a cloud-first approach for their IT needs.

If you are looking into deploying an LMS for your corporate training needs, here is what you need to know about cloud-based solutions and self-hosting.

Create a Flexible and Engaging Learning Environment with Customized Learning

Customized learning is a learner-centric approach. Learners make their own decisions regarding the content they want to consume, how learning is planned, and what the goals are. Some systems incorporate self-assessment and let learners decide what they want to achieve by interacting with the system.

In most corporate settings, customized learning is supported by the use of analytics. An LMS can track a learner's performance and interests, then recommend specific modules or learning paths adapted to each user.

Overcoming the Challenge of Evaluating Outsourced and Off-the-shelf Training Solution

With roughlyone quarter of U.S. employees working remotely at least occasionally, more businesses are seeing the benefits of relying on distributed teams. However, this approach comes with its fair share of challenges, including training these employees.

Learning and development departments need to figure out whether an outsourced or off-the-shelf training solution would make the most sense for their goals. Once they have chosen a solution, L&D experts need to face another challenge, namely evaluating the outsourced or off-the-shelf training solution they have implemented.

Alternatives to Moodle Report Plugins

Moodle offers a few different reporting plugins to help you keep track of activity or quiz results. However, these reporting capabilities can be limiting if you want to assess the impact of your eLearning program and leverage analytics to improve it.

This is because Moodle’s reporting plugins are each designed to generate a single type of report. This approach can be limiting, and you should look into adopting Zoola Analytics to generate more detailed customized reports and combine data from different sources.

How Gamification Badges Motivate Learners to Succeed

We've covered the process of gamification in several in-depth blog posts (see below for more resources). As a quick summary, gamification occurs when educators incorporate game elements into a learning environment to help learners acquire knowledge more quickly and fluidly.

How Gamification and Game-Based Learning Drive Employee Training and Performance

We've all heard the adage, "Work isn't supposed to be fun, that's why they call it work!" Like so many truisms of the past, this one belongs on the ash heap of history because employers are successfully using gamification elements for work and game-based learning using LMS features to keep staffers engaged and happy while growing their skill sets.

Open Source as an Answer to Your LMS Pain-Points

With hundreds of LMSs out in the market, the decision of which software to go with can be overwhelming! How do you begin your search?

A good place to start is to consider if you would like to have open-source software or a proprietary solution. Here at Lambda Solutions, we are a big proponent of open-source software like Moodle and Totara Learn.

Let’s break down the question of open-source or proprietary into three key areas that usually cause the most pain: flexibility, customization, and (of course!) price!
