Bringing a new e-learning platform into your business is a huge step. And if it's your first venture into the world of e-learning, it can seem daunting.
So to help make your move easier, we've put together some of the most common problems we see businesses fall into in the early stages of their e-learning journey.
Here are five of the big ones:
1. Rushing into a decision:
We've helped countless organisations with their e-learning projects over the years. And we can tell you this with confidence:
It's never an overnight job.
It takes time to bring a new learning system into your business successfully. And once you've got your new platform in place, you and your learners will be using it for years to come.
So if you don't want to be stuck with something that's a poor fit, you need to take the time to make the right decisions before you get started.
When you're looking for a new Learning Management System (LMS), it's easy to get stuck thinking about the organisational side – things like costs, timescales, training, and scalability.
But if you want your e-learning project to see real results, you need to focus on your learners, too.
You need a platform that's flexible, accessible, interactive, and simple. Or in other words, you need to create a learning space that's truly engaging for your audience.
Your users want to feel at home with a branded learning platform that matches their expectations as a part of your organisation.
And above all, they want a learning experience that's effortless, seamless, and painless.
4. Creating every course from scratch:
So instead of investing time and money into creating new learning courses for common topics, you can use pre-built curated content from places like the new GO1 Marketplace for Totara Learn - and then adapt and modify them to fit your own learning campaigns.
5. Trying to do everything yourself:
