You might have heard the term online classes in this Covid time or much before that. Online classes have been held for the last several years for distance education programs, but due to the fear of covid-19, there have been subsequent restrictions on people’s physical movement which has led to full-time adoption of online classes.
Did you know that the system that works behind you getting education online is called Learning Management System (LMS)? In this blog, the usefulness and working of cloud LMS will be discussed.
What Is A Cloud-Based LMS?
Under this system, education data is hosted on the internet so that anyone can access it with provided login credentials. A learner does not require you to download any software or does not need any specific hardware for accessing.
Under the LMS, when all the data is available for access anytime and anywhere, it is called cloud-based LMS. Organizations, parents, teachers, students, and other stakeholders are adopting this process to save time and money.
Why should You use Cloud-Based LMS?
Mobile compatibility:- Smartphones have become the next big thing in the digital market. It has slowly taken over the percentage of other digital devices. All the experts and analysts have a firm belief that the next decades belong to the smartphone.
High phone penetration and low data charges have pushed the adoption even more. A learner can access the study material anytime, anywhere through their smartphones. Training on any device increases adaptability and improves course completion.
Cost-Effective:- LMS is very affordable for every stakeholder. You host the data on the cloud and charge a subscription from the learner. Cloud hosting companies do the work of hosting, and you do not need to pay for support, upkeep, and maintenance. Whatever amount invested, you will get a good return on that amount.
High Accessibility:- A learner requires a digital device like a smartphone, computer, laptop, desktop, tablet, an active internet connection, and a zeal to learn. Anyone with access has complete flexibility for deciding learning time, pace, and place. It does not require traveling to any schools, college, or institutes rather one just needs to be at home with a working device to attend their classes and learn.
Quick & easy to use:- A learner or the teacher does not require special technical knowledge to use it. The teacher needs the same resources as the learners. Both get defined user ID and password but do their respective work. No special purchase of any device and no sophisticated download of any software. It supports any device with an internet connection.
Integrated learning approach:- The whole process in the entire training program like registration, assignments, course creation, course delivery, completion, and certificate creation happens with the help of technology in a smooth way. The process works in a streamlined way, thus give a great learning experience for the users.
Enhanced security with increased storage:- The cloud hosting companies follow strict guidelines on data safety and privacy so that your data remain safe all the time. Platforms hold the data in an encrypted form with an additional security layer. In case the provided storage is full, you need not worry much. You have to buy the additional storage, and that’s it.
It is all possible thanks to technological advancements like Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Micro-learning, and much more. It’s time for you to use the cloud LMS for learning or to providing teaching to others.
