Robust business support and proper planning are capable of successfully implementing any enterprise system. This assumes further relevance for systems that enjoys a widespread effect on the regulatory compliance such as mobile learning management system (LMS). It is believed that these implementations need in-depth planning along with cross-organisation partnership abilities for guaranteed success.
Understanding that mobile learning platforms are the drivers of future learning platforms, we have identified some key practices that will play a key role in achieving your target of a successful mobile learning management system implementation.
- Alignment of strategy
It is believed that the implementation of a mobile learning management system is most successful when aligned with the company’s strategy. Your selected mobile LMS should be able to make a considerable contribution to the long-term success of a business and not just take care of the short-term requirements.
- Relevance of executive sponsor
If you do not have an executive sponsor, it is important to get one. An executive sponsor can enact a key role in bringing teams from varied departments, bag budget approval and empower a business to implement change.
It isn’t necessary that an HR or learning executive is the sponsor. It is best to have the sponsor from finance or legal areas.
- Define business needs
Vague targets, unclear needs and undefined success metrics are the contributing factors that lead to the failure in implementation of mobile Learning management system.
- Team building
It is always a better to plan before time to ensure you have necessary resources available who can work on the successful implementation of a mobile learning management system. An enterprise LMS has different functionalities and it demands attention from users to increase its familiarity with functionalities and process changes.
- Planning the implementation
It is key to have a strong plan that comprises of all the essential steps of an implementation process. Set a realistic target about your implementation schedule as it may take approximately 3-6 months depending upon the target you are eyeing to achieve.
Never underestimate the value of the time spent on training. After providing training, the system administrator should be positioned to engage in-depth conversations with the vendors and ask necessary questions.
- Promote change
Many technical implementations fail to achieve targets because companies do not realise the relevance to training employees and management for the changes. It has been observed that a new LMS can be exciting to a project team but can be intimidating for the non-technical teams.
- Continuous LMS use
It is really essential to maintain the interest level around the learning management system after the completion of implementation. The target should be to keep them logging in again and again. Just add some fun courses to the system to build the interest of the users.
Leveraging communication features of the LMS, such as homepage updates or news articles, is a good idea to offer the users a variety of experience whenever they log in.
It is time to use a mobile learning management system to make your learning experiences more interactive due to its ability to develop, manage and mobile learning to different mobile devices.
