How to Modernise Your Learning Management System (LMS)

How to Modernise Your Learning Management System (LMS)

In 2022, we’re planning for a year of big wins in the workplace, which means we need a learning management system (LMS) that can effectively harness the ingeniousness of technology in the modern workforce.

Our team at WorkPlan have challenged the traditional learning management features used by Microsoft and Google, and built an innovative and responsive tool that you can use to grow your practice and tap into the collected knowledge and skills possessed by people within your organisation.

A modern LMS like WorkPlan Learning is designed with collaboration and teamwork at the heart of its functions. We can set up our goals, priorities and planning in an effective and easy to use manner so that everyone in our team can approach their tasks with confidence.

In this article, we will answer a few commonly asked questions on why your current LMS might not be working for you and how to upgrade your learning management to the advantage of your organisation.


What are the tell-tale signs that I need to upgrade my LMS?

It starts with a system that’s functions are convoluted and rigid, forcing your organisation to fit their mould rather than the other way around.

  • Your organisation wants more ways to build a learning ecosystem that is interactive and engaging.
  • You’re finding it difficult to assess and track your learners’ progress.
  • Your organisation are looking for more social learning options that assist with remote workplace learning.

How will a modern LMS improve my current workplace?

You’ll be pleasantly surprised how easily adaptable a new learning management system can be and the benefits it will have on your organisation. Introducing an LMS like WorkPlan Learning helps:

  • Prioritise engagement and productivity by using a democratised approach that helps to build a community based around learning and growth rather than just focusing on a one-way conversation.
  • Keep everyone on the same page in terms of goals, objectives, and strategy. When you achieve this, your business will become more cohesive than ever.
  • Put emphasis on collaboration; and open communication between teams and team members.


How will I prepare my organisation for a new way of working?

We believe in the collaborative approach and open-door policy, so why not put the proposition out to the people within your organisation and ask them what they think is most important for a more unified learning approach.
A few ways that you can do this are:

  1. Strategise within your organisational chart and determine the areas that need stronger systems in place. You could put out a survey to people within those groups to identify trends and narrow down existing issues.
  2. Research the LMS offerings that best fit your organisation and its future goals. Get in touch with WorkPlan Learning for a free trial to tour the software and explore its diverse offerings.
  3. Show a demonstration of the LMS to your organisation and communicate clear accountabilities that show how you will use the platform to improve their work practice.
