While it will be uncalled for to phase out your once most reliable workhorse of an LMS for organizational training, in the modern workplace and work ecosystem with ever increasing business challenges, and the changing nature of the modern learner, switching over to an LXP is key for a natural progression towards a new work culture; a culture with focus being on increasing efficiency and productivity.

Most preferred platform

What, then, sets LXP apart from LMS and why it has emerged as the most preferred online learning system for organisations to train their employees? A pointer to its growing popularity, according to an estimate the LXP market it set to surpass the $15 billion mark by 2023-24.

  • It is user-controlled unlike LMS’ organisation-controlled learning. The ability to provide tailor-made learning paths for trainees makes LXP a unique learning platform. Here the users are free to add contents which are in tune with their learning goals.

Freedom of learning

As opposed to an LMS’ closed system and admin-controlled learning including content creation and course pacing, LXP is flexible and user-controlled and self-paced. So, there is freedom to choose content relevant to the objectives of the learning. Users are doubly benefited by way of receiving personalized recommendations that go hand in hand with their learning goals.  

Easy to scale and integrate

LXP enables organisations a hassle-free shift from their existing LMS. It has the ability to easily and effectively integrate with authoring tools. Its flexibility and scalability facilitate creation of personalized learning tracks for users, further adding value to its training capabilities. So, the trainee has always the control over his or her learning process in sync with job roles goals. Facilitating the entire training process is LXP’s robust use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

Icing on the cake

Unlike LMS, LXP lets learners share and upload, thus enabling a culture of collaborative and peer-learning. Result – a higher level of learner-to-learner engagement and a more profound learning. This minimizes the possibility of learners opting out half way through courses for various reasons like lack of interest to a dull and lifeless content. In the end, it all helps in developing skills to organise and plan learning activities through sharing of feedback and evaluation of each other’s learning.

Total learning experience

With LMS increasingly losing out on its prime role of providing unique learning experiences, LXP easily scores over it by way of providing comprehensive all encompassing learning experience to users.

  • Unlike in the case of LMS, LXP allows for and offers curated content to learners rather than contents that are simply collected and placed before learners to pick and choose to fit them in their scheme of learning.

Easily adaptable

Besides being admin controlled, LMS often suffers from the stigma of being a heavy-to-manage software system not so easy to bring in sync with the learning or training requirements of organisation.

  • LXP is easy to adapt and customize as per the specific training objectives of the organisation. This is being enabled through effective use of technology to not only facilitate learning but also troubleshoot a range of learning issues.

To sum up, the LXP with its range of unique and different learning tools and methods has emerged as the main choice of eLearning enterprises. At a time when learners want to learn fast and get ready to enhance job opportunities, and organisations eager to scale up effectively to face up to newer challenges, there are enough reasons to go for LXP and stay relevant and survive in the business.
