Everyone learns differently - this is now common knowledge. The aspects of traditional learning that work well are very different for individual learners — we all benefit from different strong-points, and we all face different learning challenges. "Adaptive learning" uses technology to address these differences, by personalizing courses in a way that best fits each individual's specific learning needs.

Healthcare Learning Management System Survey Results

Posted by Lambda Solutions on Mar 30, 2016 7:00:00 AM

We issued a survey targeting professionals from the healthcare world to gain insight into the particular learning and development challenges they face. Being fairly familiar with the challenges faced by those from the corporate enterprise world we were curious to see if the healthcare industry—hospitals in particular—are struggling with similar challenges and to what degree. We received over 300 responses coming from a range of professionals who work in hospitals. Responses came from those who work in: IT, Operations/Administration, Human Resources, Learning and Development, Nursing, and Education/Research. The majority of responses came from Directors/Managers/Supervisors, Senior Management and Staff Members. Before we issue the full report, we thought we would share some key takeaways.

The LMS Reporting and Learning Analytics Gap

Posted by Lambda Solutions on Jan 13, 2016 11:47:00 AM

Based on feedback from a few of our reporting webinars, it’s become apparent to us that there is a clear gap and challenge when it comes to learning and talent analytics. The pressure in training and education to demonstrate the value of learning and development programs to c-suite executives is at an all-time high. The need for executive level reporting is a huge challenge when it comes to getting the right data in a timely fashion, and we feel your pain.

Why Moodle is the World’s Best LMS

Posted by Lambda Solutions on Nov 13, 2015 7:00:00 AM

With 68 million users worldwide (larger than UK’s population!), Moodle is hands down the most-widely used learning management system (LMS) by organizations of all shapes and sizes. But Moodle is not the world’s best LMS just because it’s so widely used—Moodle is the world’s best LMS because it is user-friendly, highly-configurable (flexible), and feature-rich. Did we also mention that Moodle is free?

Moodle's newest version, Moodle 3.0, is on its way! To see which new and improved features Moodle 3.0 will come equipped with, sign up for our next webinar.

The 3 LMS Features that Increase Employee Engagement

Posted by Lambda Solutions on Nov 6, 2015 6:00:00 AM

We’ve written before about the pervasive issue that is stagnating economic growth in the US—employee disengagement. According to research from Gallup, only 30% of American workers are engaged. What do we mean by engaged? As Gallup defines, engaged employees “work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company [and therefore] drive innovation and move the organization forward". The remaining 70% of US employees are either not-engaged or actively disengaged meaning that they are ‘checked-out, sleep walking through the day’ or plainly ‘unhappy at work undermining what their engaged counterparts accomplish’.
