Tools for Educators Working from Home: Learning Management System
Local schools are starting to adapt to the new normal in education across Australia. With technical support and services becoming more vital and available while both students and educators are online, there are still a lot of challenges in bringing education closer to the students. How can educators continue to provide learning sessions while staying at home?
We look at one vital system that can support eLearning globally, enabling educators to deliver training solutions while working from home:
Learning Management Systems (LMS)
Digital Learning Management System (LMS) has been an essential system in expanding the capacities of eLearning across the world. It is, therefore, important for educators to get a good grasp of LMS and the benefits it brings. But more than the teachers, the management of educational institutions should consider and constantly review how effective their LMS is and how much investment is being placed in improving this vital system. Investment does not only mean money for the software and content, but also money for training the trainers, or empowering those who will directly manage and use the LMS on a day-to-day basis. The key to remember for educators is to understand how to maximize LMS to deploy and track training initiatives.
LMS can be deployed as a cloud-based software-as-a-service solution. This means the whole system is hosted in the cloud. The easiest way to grasp this idea is that there is no need to install any software as the system may be accessed online through the most common internet browsers, such as Chrome, Safari, or Internet Explorer.
IT service providers in Australia can support in enabling educators to use these tools by keeping their systems working, ensuring strong and continuous connectivity, and providing other backend solutions.
