Say Hello To Next Gen LMS

Learning Management Systems (LMS) are continually developing to become more user-friendly, faster, more effective and forward-thinking.

Modern approaches to learning can be difficult to implement, which is why it is important to develop a plan in which corporate objectives are determined. New LMS’s provide the opportunity for organizations to reach these objectives through the effective training of employees in corporate processes.

You need a new corporate LMS, but not just any LMS. Next gen LMS’s are mobile-based and revolve around both micro and collaborative learning. A good LMS should feature social learning, gamification, the ability to support offline learning, and have a built-in authoring tool.

Social Learning

The most beneficial and successful learning strategies revolve around social and collaborative learning. When learners feel like they can relate to other individuals in their same situation, they feel a sense of support and encouragement to work harder. In collaborative microlearning modules, users are able to compete with each other, introducing an aspect of social learning for maximum return on training investment.


The incorporation of gaming elements into serious course content adds a dimension of fun and entertainment into the learning process. This includes the incorporation of leader boards, point scores, star bars and real prizes. The interactivity boosts employee productivity and intrinsically motivates them to progress through a greater volume of material in the course in a shorter amount of time. Although micromodules mean that employees are spending less time on their study, spaced repetition is scientifically proven to increase the amount of information absorbed and retained by learners.

Offline Learning

Stay plugged in after plugging out with offline mode! SC Training (formerly EdApp) has revolutionized microlearning by designing our offline function to welcome the power of anytime, anywhere. Offline learning means users can complete their training on planes, trains, overseas, in the country, at the top of a mountain, or even just when the internet connection is poor. The choice is yours. If this doesn’t define convenience, we don’t know what does.

Built-In Authoring Tool

An authoring tool is a software program utilised in the design and execution of mobile courses. A good, built-in authoring tool incorporates various interactive components to enhance the effect of microlearning modules. Effective authoring tools, such as SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s, provide users with a vast library filled with pre-made templates for seamless integration of your unique content. SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s integrated authoring tool is responsive and has a plethora of advanced capabilities. It is incredibly efficient, allowing users to instantly import written content into microlearning modules with a touch of a button. It also has a cloud-based delivery system, meaning the content is distributed to learners’ devices simultaneously from a central source.
