E-learning in a nutshell."How to Learn with Computers and the Internet.It is.

DedicatedplatformAnyone can easily start their own e-learning program without building a system from scratch.

A platform is a "standard environment that serves as a common foundation (base)" necessary to provide, customize, and operate services, systems, and software.

Background to the focus on e-learning

Computer-assisted learning, which is the basis of e-learning, was first developed in the 1950s with the idea of CAI, or "Can't we use computers to support education? The development of CAI began in the 1950s, mainly in the United States.

Before the spread of the Internet, the main form of learning was through video materials.
It has been noted that learning with video materials is more effective than reference books that only contain text or text.

In conventional group and in-house training, instructors and trainees have to stay in the same place for a long time, and managers have to check the progress of trainees, which cannot be called efficient.

Learning management system that supports the e-learning system

learning management system

The most common way to use e-learning is through an internet-based system.
In the past, most e-learning was done by reading a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM on a computer and starting learning, but now it is possible to log in to the system on the Internet and proceed with learning easily.

Also, to manage your e-learningLearning Management System (LMS)has made it possible to integrate and centrally manage the content registration, distribution, and performance data required to implement e-learning.

The Role of the Learning Management System (LMS)

LMS is an abbreviation for "Learning Management System" and is said to be "Learning Management System" in Japanese.
LMS refers to the platform used to manage and operate human resource education on a system via the Internet and computers.

With the advent of the LMS platform, we now have an integrated system for managing the information necessary for e-learning operations, and learners can check their own learning history and test results, and receive support and feedback at the most appropriate time".

LMS is mainly used as a corporate training system, and in some cases it is used as a complementary system to promote mutual communication between instructors and students.
Other than that, it is a systematic human resource development that matches the aptitude of employees with the human resources that the company aims for.Talent Management.We are also expanding the use of this system to
Talent management is a concept that aims to carry out strategic human resource allocation and development by centrally managing and operating data on talent, skills, and experience, which represent the abilities, qualities, and talents of employees.
▼ The Talent Management System is explained in detail in this article.

Main functions of the LMS

The structure of an LMS can be broadly divided into e-learning functions and management functions.
With the introduction of an LMS, administrators can easily check the "progress of learning" and "learning outcomes" of learners using figures and graphs.

LMS function 1: Managing teaching materials

Some LMS functions allow you to use only materials that have been pre-registered by the operator of the system. Systems that allow users to register their own content or create content within the system are sometimes referred to as "LCMS" among LMSs.

LMS Function 2: Delivering Educational Materials

All learning materials for e-learning are stored in the LMS, and the materials stored in the LMS are delivered to the student's device via the Internet.
There are "00 functions" such as playing videos, learning content, and administering exams, etc. These functions are always present in any LMS, and the types and contents of content they can handle vary depending on the LMS you are using.

LMS Features #3: Managing Accounts

Let the user himself register.
The administrator registers one person at a time.
The administrator registers in bulk by CSV.
Register with an external system.

LMS Function #4: Managing Grades

All learners' progress is recorded in the LMS.
Therefore, even if there are many students in a large company, the learning status can be centrally managed, and learners can be managed and analyzed in various segments.

Points to keep in mind when choosing an e-learning platform

e-learning platform

The term "platform" means "an environment or place that serves as a foundation," and in business terms, it is used to mean "a place or system that provides multiple services or products.
An e-learning platform is a learning system that provides a variety of e-learning content on a platform.
On the platform, you can assign content, manage learner information and learning progress, view learning data, and configure other details.

Three important points to consider when choosing an e-learning platform

When selecting an e-learning system, we refer to the e-learning functions, introduction effects, examples of introduction results, support content, and cost (price). In addition, why don't you also refer to the three points that we will introduce in the future?

Choose a service with a long-term perspective
When selecting an eLearning/LMS service, you will be comparing it to your company's current situation and challenges. While you should choose a system that fits your current situation, there is no guarantee that your needs will not change in the future. A mid- to long-term perspective is also very important.

Who exactly is using e-learning?
In order to use e-learning and LMS services in an optimal way for your company's issues, it is necessary to develop an educational plan that is optimized for the purpose of who (which department) will be in charge, what topics will be covered, and for whom e-learning will be used.

Consider the ease of use for employees taking the course.
When introducing an e-learning/LMS service, HR staff should be careful to consider the functions and ease of use from the perspective of the person in charge, rather than the perspective of the employees taking the course.
It is necessary to verify the usability of the system from the user's perspective, taking into account the need for the employees who will be taking the course and, depending on the function, those in charge of training at the site to learn how to operate and set the system.

Here are some examples of how LMS is used

Advances in the LMS have allowed for quick and flexible course registration, student management, and updating of course materials.
Here, we use the example of "in-house training and certification examinations" as a scenario for customer use.

Customers who are considering using this service for in-house training

Once the e-learning environment is established, it can be used over and over again.
Therefore, the cost of in-house group training and new employee training could be significantly reduced.

When conducting group training, the following costs will be incurred

1. Transportation costs incurred when gathering participants to the venue
No. 2: Venue costs incurred in conducting the training.
No. 3: Printing and distribution costs for materials used in the training

By conducting training via e-learning, you can reduce the cost of venues and the time and expense of distributing course textbooks.
We can provide flexible learning opportunities for those with irregular working hours or mid-career hires, for whom group training would be difficult.

Customers who are considering using the system for examinations

E-learning learning can easily export data from the LMS, the delivery system.
Therefore, it is possible to easily check the data necessary for learning management, such as the progress of learning (not completed, in progress, completed, etc.), the time of day, the time required, and the score of the test, and also to download all the score data at once.
Accumulated performance data can also be quantified and displayed in a graph.
▼ Advantages of the examination

1. You can study anytime and anywhere at your own time.
2. You can learn according to your own level of understanding and progress.
No.3: Easy to understand performance data and performance management

Because e-learning allows you to study at your own pace and repeat as many times as you like, it is a very suitable learning method for acquiring qualifications, preparing for exams, and overcoming weak subjects.
