LMS development from scratch

The e-learning industry is booming with an annual growth rate of approximately 9%, and the market is expected to reach $257.70 billion by 2028. Not surprisingly, companies are looking to implement online learning platforms to train employees.

However, statistics show that 59% of employees have not received on-the-job training, and 50% of companies have not properly trained their employees.

This means that simply investing in L&D will not solve the problem of employee engagement and professional development. Other measures are needed, especially since there are many ways to engage and educate employees.

One of the most effective ways to onboard and train employees is to create and implement an online learning platform or LMS (Learning Management System) with a series of online courses prepared by experienced professionals. This is good news, but due to the wide range of online learning platforms, it is not easy to choose the best one.

Much simpler and more appealing is the idea of creating a learning management system from scratch that solves exactly your business problems. In this article, we will look at how to build a customized learning management system, how long it can take, how to get not just a course management system, but a platform based on artificial intelligence, and so on.

We will also show what such a system can look like and how it works, using the example of creating an LMS for the training needs of a logistics company.

So, let's get started!

What is an LMS?

An LMS, or learning management system, is software designed to optimize the learning process and the delivery of educational services. Customizable LMS allows users to create, build, and manage online courses or virtual classrooms that can be accessed on the go.

In the corporate sector, LMS is widely used for employee training and development:

1. It streamlines onboarding, upskilling, and training processes to meet regulatory requirements.

2. Employees can access training materials whenever it is convenient for them, allowing for flexible training schedules.

3. Managers can track employee progress and performance with built-in analytics tools, ensuring training effectiveness.

Types of Learning Management Systems

Learning Management Systems (LMS) vary based on how they're used and how learning materials are delivered.

LMS types

LMSs based on how they're used

In terms of usage scenarios, the following LMSs can be distinguished:

  • Onboarding LMS
  • AI-powered learning platforms for skills development
  • LMSs for compliance training
  • Collaborative and interactive learning LMSs.

Let's delve into each one.

1. Onboarding LMSs

This e-learning solution is perfect if you want to onboard new employees smoothly and speed up the process. With Adaptive Learning, you can provide new employees with all the materials and resources they need to get started and automate the process. This makes onboarding less overwhelming for them and less work for HR.

2. AI-powered learning platforms for skills development

There's a standalone LMS made specifically for professionals who want to re-skill or upskill. This digital platform fills in knowledge gaps and boosts the expertise of your current employees, benefiting your business. What's great is that it offers personalized learning, guiding each learner step-by-step instead of using a one-size-fits-all approach.

3. LMSs for compliance training

A learning platform, such as an AI-powered learning platform, may be just what your organization needs to meet the challenges of mandatory employee training. Whether it's compliance training for risk mitigation and safety, or other requirements, a state-of-the-art LMS makes it easier and more convenient for employees to handle this training.

4. Collaborative and interactive learning LMSs

They bring your team together and encourage innovation within your organization. With collaborative learning, employees can share knowledge and ideas, resulting in cohesive teams that are invested in their own development and the growth of your business.

LMS solutions based on how they're delivered

Different types of learning management systems (LMS) based on delivery methods include:

  • Cloud-based LMS
  • Advanced LMS
  • An LMS for remote work and learning
  • Mobile learning systems.

Let's explore each one.

1. Cloud-based LMS

These training platforms allow employees to learn from anywhere, at any time, and their own pace. In Europe alone, approximately 12.5% of organizations use them.

2. Advanced LMS

This type of personalized learning unites employees, customers, and stakeholders on one platform, enhancing training effectiveness through cohesive coordination.

What’s the idea of LMS system?


Our idea was to create a customized Learning Management System (LMS) that could meet the diverse education and training needs of an organization. To achieve this, we carefully designed comprehensive dashboards with the necessary features. The result is an innovative e-learning solution that is perfectly aligned with business needs.

Ready for the details? Let's dive into the process below!

User Roles


Here we are going to define roles that give certain privileges to the user and grant access to platform features and functionality. There are three user levels within the learning management system for the logistics company: Mentee, Mentor and Administrator. Let’s dive into the details below:

  • Mentees are most course users with basic permissions in the learning management system, able to view training materials and unable to manage functionality.
  • Mentors can create courses, view enrollments, mark attendance, upload and manage training material, view course reports, and manage course layout.
  • Administrator can manage every aspect of the platform. They will have visibility to all apps, features, and settings.

Mentee Dashboard


mentee dashboard

To log in to the learning management system as a Mentee, you should choose a Mentee account type, and insert your username and password into the login form. Also, you can sign in with Google. Welcome to your interactive learning platform!

mentee login into LMS platform

After you sign in, you can see a list of courses available, and choose the ones you want to join. Developed simple LMS provides the following courses:

dashboard

  • On-boarding program (company history, values, culture, team)
  • Health and safety (first aid, fire safety awareness, sexual harassment, data security)
  • Job-specific courses (Logistics management, Supply chain management, Supply Chain Analytics, Supply Chain Principles, Business operations management.)
  • Marketing (SEO, SMM, Google Analytics, Google Adwords, etc.)

Discussions, webinars and conferences

Sharing views on specific topics previously learned is a good practice. That’s why facilitating discussions can not only help mentees learn from one another but also help them understand and retain the materials better. The Discussion feature allows mentees to chat, ask questions, leave comments, and add a deeper dimension to the course they’re studying.

discussions

They can start the conversation or reflect on the course material which boosts participation. Also, mentees can attend webinars and web conferences.

Webinars are those that mentees attend online via videoconferencing and are divided into sessions. To take these webinars, mentees will access the video conference directly from their account so their progress can be tracked. Also, they may be asked to attend one or multiple session dates to complete the course. This provides context for the information mentees want to retain and also gives them a chance to interact with experienced instructors and leaders in the logistics sector in real-time. Mentees are also able to connect to the webinar session and display live broadcasting. It's no secret that webinars are useful when engaging learners (mentees) and creating ongoing value.

webinars

Webinars include how-to videos or best practices that showcase training in the field of logistics. Such training can be conducted online, and live-streamed in real-time, and mentees can provide immediate feedback in the form of real-time comments.

Virtual personal assistant - a chatbot

Being a virtual personal assistant available at every step of the learning path, it interacts with the mentee just like a live person in the form of messaging, engages the mentee in realistic practice conversations, helps the mentee to complete the course step-by-step, and performs the tasks better.

Also, it helps mentors by lowering the burden when explaining the same things over and over to different learners and answering the questions raised by students daily, checking their homework regularly, identifying spelling and grammatical mistakes precisely, assigning projects, and keeping track of mentees’ progress and achievements. With educational chatbots, the learning process is more personalized, productive, and adaptive. Sounds impressive, right?

LMS chatbot

Also, you can see a course roadmap, a sequence of well-structured learning activities that teach specific skills. Essentially, this is a way to map out training, making the learning process smoother and understandable.

That's why mentees follow a strategic, well-thought-out training roadmap to get the most out of their employee training. A training roadmap ensures that your learning course always leads mentees to the desired learning outcome.

Virtual online consultation

Online consultations are highly effective in helping mentees with challenges they may face when learning. Thanks to technology, there are ways for mentees to reach their mentor and ask questions virtually. Conversational learning options, such as an online consultation, allow mentees to:

virtual consultations

  • Get faster responses without waiting for an in-person appointment.
  • Receive the same level of advice and guidance that a mentee would receive in person.
  • Boost engagement and confidence for better task performance.
  • Feel comfortable asking questions or sharing thoughts in a supportive environment.

Calendar

Dates for events, webinars, conferences, assignments, and tests are constantly flying around, filling mentees' schedules before the week even begins. That's why calendars provide many benefits to our lives, whether academic or personal. With this in mind, we built this feature into the logistics company's LMS solution. It allows mentees to schedule time for important activities such as conferences, webinars, tests, etc. so that they can complete those that are a priority or have deadlines. They can use the calendar as a tool to help them get things done and stay on task.

Progress

Getting the reporting right can have a significant impact on an organization and fundamentally change the way mentees do their jobs. Are your corporate mentees completing the online training modules and activities? Are they progressing as planned? How many courses have they completed? These are all questions that can be answered by reports extracted from the Learning Management System developed. Let's dive into the details!

LMS reports

The Progress feature provides users with the following capabilities:

  • Learning Management System reports on mentees' progress and completion rates enable you to track individual performance so that you can intervene in the learning process as needed.
  • Mentees can see how long it takes for them to complete each online training module or activity.
  • Mentees see their test results, activity timeline, and how many points they got.
  • You can keep track of the certification process to make sure each case is up to code.

Mentor Dashboard
