LMS configurability : Power in user’s hand – Part 1

Image

Most of you in learning industry have come across and have used applications and tools which are vendor provided (off the shelf). Many of these serve the business purpose to most part, but don’t necessarily meet all the specific needs of business (there could be tons of reasons for it) and then you end up customizing the application to meet them. Depending upon your choices and the extent of customizations you add to the base product, you ultimately end up maintaining these customizations for the lifetime of the product. As evolves the business need and its complexities, so goes the hunger for customizations to meet those needs and desires.  And ultimately you may end up in such a big rat-hole where it gets almost impossible to get out of it. The cost of maintaining these customizations get higher and higher and the upgrades to new versions of the application/tool gets harder and harder.

What if you could change it? What if there is a vendor whose application not only provides the base feature set you need to meet key requirements for your business, but also provides you with tools and flexibility to configure (You see, Configure and Not Customize!) the application’s workflows and user experience to meet specific needs of business.

Edubrite provides you such LMS platform! Multilingual LMS platform from Edubrite is a complete SaaS authoring and delivery package for training and assessment needs. It has configurable workflows built in the application architecture providing tons of easy to use features. It provides all the right information and tools one need on the dashboard itself based on the user type (training admins, learners, etc.).

It also delivers all the tools needed for super admins of the application and its sites to turn on/off the features they need and configure their sites for their specific business scenarios and needs.  It makes ongoing maintenance and upgrades completely transparent and smooth and hence delivering huge ROI to businesses.
