Problems Solved by TalentLMS
1. You can use it for employee orientation
You can use TalentLMS to introduce new hires to their working environment and give them information such as your company’s operating procedures and policies. You can use your existing materials in multiple formats such as Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, corporate videos etc. to create orientation courses. You can also include tests and auto-grading to run your employee orientation as a training course. Plus, you can get detailed reports on the attendance and completion status of orientation courses which can serve as proof that you have taught your employees their legal obligations and information on topics such as sexual harassment laws. This can prove useful if there is a legal dispute.
2. You can create your own e-learning portal for selling courses
Unlimited number of users can register for your courses, but you’ll be charged only for paying students who use your e-learning system. Users can pay one time per-course payments as well as a single monthly fee to access your commercial courses. Plus, to attract students you can use discount coupons that can be customized (for example, they can be used only for a limited number of times, or can be made valid only for specific courses, etc.).
3. TalentLMS supports Instructor-Led Training (ILT)
Instructor-Led Training (ILT) is also known as blended or hybrid learning. It refers to lessons held in a traditional classroom-style fashion or in real-time through video conference (webinar). TalentLMS supports ILT that allows you to create lesson units that contain one or more sessions (either “classroom” or “webinar”), and lets you specify their duration, location, and capacity (you can decided the maximum number of students who can attend). Students are shown information about upcoming ILT sessions on their TalentLMS homepage, and they can register for sessions they plan to attend.
