LMS solutions are valuable tools to streamline the design, administration and delivery of online education and corporate training services, but they’re not all the same. You can choose an off-the-shelf product or a custom eLearning management system built from scratch. Going for a custom LMS ensures:
If you need tailored features to meet your unique eLearning needs, these can be more difficult and expensive to implement in a boxed solution, if possible at all. To reduce your TCO, opt for an original LMS from the start.
If you require total control and ownership of your product and prefer to avoid license fees that might add up to remarkable costs in the long term, go for a custom solution.
If you want to comply with strict regulations and security standards, it’s recommended to configure your own solution with specific controls to protect your data properly.
LMS is generally known for focusing more on administration and management compared to other digital solutions such as eLearning portals. However, an efficient LMS should encompass a wide range of features covering each major aspect of online education, such as:
The holistic nature of a custom LMS can be further amplified by combining it with other types of software. Here are some of the major integrations you should consider implementing, according to Itransition's experience:
This improves corporate training by scanning employee data and ensuring role-based access to personalized didactic content and learning paths.
This enables valuable customer information exchange with your LMS for you to tailor your learner retention strategies and personalization.
This helps promote sociability and collaboration, streamline sign-up via social profiles, and share achievements with peers.
This enhances your LMS profitability by providing it with such features as email marketing, shopping cart, checkout, credit card verification, and invoicing.
This ensures smooth eLearning content creation, uploading, editing, and storing in your custom LMS without requiring IT assistance.
This is for simulating classroom workflows, setting up specific learning scenarios with a high degree of interaction, and recording lessons for later access.
