A Learning Management System is an integral part of the modern business environment. It helps employees and business leaders learn and master vital skills without spending a fortune on training. However, with rising competition, you can stand out from the crowd by focusing on proper digital marketing methods that will push your LMS to the top of the pile. You can start by eliminating the following mistakes, and then proceed to create an online marketing strategy that works for you. Here are the top 7 marketing mistakes that lead to low LMS sales.Organizations are looking to improve the productivity of all their employees. However, most LMS vendors focus on marketing the software as one that will improve the productivity of low performers or better the productivity of top performers. Statistically, the extremes in any industry account for a mere 40% of the workforce, and this leaves out 60% average performers who are the primary movers of any industry. For this reason, it’s crucial to promote your LMS as the “complete package” that’s designed for all levels of performers. Which prompts organizations to perceive it as a better deal. Especially when compared to buying an LMS for each stage of the employee cycle or distinct experience levels.

Back to school after lockdown – tips from an NHS Psychologist

Article | October 1, 2020

Since some schools across the UK have started to re-open in phases, it’s opened up a whole new set of questions for families. What will it be like for our kids? How will my child adjust to school after months at home? As well as adjusting academically to full-time education again, the emotional impact will be big too. We spoke to NHS Senior Clinical Psychologist, Dr Shreena Ghelani, about how parents can help their get kids ready to return to school, whenever that might be. Here’s what she had to say: Prepare in advance Before it’s time for them to go back, keep school in the minds of your kids – drive past the school if you can so that they can see that it’s still there. When they’ve been given a return date, treat it like the beginning of the school year. Do a test run of getting ready in the morning, make sure school uniform fits, practice packing bags and walking the route to school. For younger children, they may need a settling in period again – parents may have to come into the classroom and ensure their child is settled. For teenagers – use the time while they’re still at home to keep their friendships alive by video call etc. This will help make returning back to their peer group feel less unfamiliar. One step at a time Even when school re starts, you may find that children are more tired than usual by the extra demands and sensory stimulation placed on them. Ease them back in to their routine gently and wait to start other activities (clubs and activities) in a few weeks time. Manage expectations When the time comes, you’ll find you’ll feel less stressed if you know there will be bumps in the road. Allow enough space and time in a new schedule for any hiccups so that you’re not having to manage too many demands (i.e batch cook dinners before hand, don’t agree to extra activities or if possible, adopt flexible working hours). Try to notice if you’re feeling anxious about the return to school in any way and if so, spend some time thinking about it and unpicking it. If children pick up on your anxieties they may feel anxious too. Managing worry and anxiety If you know your child might struggle with going back to school, try developing a toolbox of things they can do when they are worried at school. This might include a song to sing to them selves, visualising a calm place, some affirmation cards, practicing a breathing techniques and identifying safe staff they can tell. You can make this box together and the child can take some bits with them to school. Speak to your children about the impact of Coronavirus Let children know that it is likely that other families have been impacted by the virus (whether that’s key worker parents working hard, or family bereavements). Encourage your child to be patient with and kind to other children. Talk to them about what they might still be expected to do – not hug friends, wash their hands often, not share food or toys etc. For any children with special educational needs, they might need adaptations made for them. This might include visiting the school while it’s empty to familiarise them with the space, a video call with their teacher or a more phased return than other pupils – whatever’s best for them.

Unleash Your Creativity For Inspired eLearning

Article | October 1, 2020

Are you inspired? Does your work reflect the level of creativity that you are capable of? Are you limited by factors out of your control? The struggle is real for Instructional Designers, as they must balance their creative desires and well-defined guidelines. These guidelines are well in effect for both academic and corporate organizations. These guidelines oftentimes tend to stifle creativity. The risk is that the learner will not be engaged, and the messaging is not as impactful as intended. Ultimately, the desire should be to create inspired eLearning, push the limits of the Instructional Designer, and still satisfy the organization's guidelines.

Article | October 1, 2020
