Managing Learning Needs a System
Last month I mentioned we were moving to Thinkific, a new platform for our website which also includes a Learning Management System (LMS). We have launched the website (check it out at www.mcecor.com) and are working on populating the LMS. For those of you who may not know what an LMS is, and for those that do know but might wonder why MCE would want one, please keep reading! 

Simply put, an LMS is a platform where an organization houses, delivers and tracks, training.  Let’s look at the benefits of each of these and how we, at MCE plan to utilize our LMS.

Houses training content. All in one spot. By keeping all of your content in one spot it is easier to access. This means saving time searching files. In our case, it also means our participants can access the training materials including PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and resource lists any time they want - from a few days before training to any time after. Learners can review content again and again, increasing retention of what they have learned. Increased retention means a better return on investment of training dollars spent.  

Delivering training. All in one spot. The facilitator has all the material they need to facilitate the training. Class time is not wasted, by participants, searching for missing emails, (which is how we currently send content) because the facilitator and participants see the same content at the same time. The facilitator doesn’t have to interrupt the flow and put links in the “chat” function of Zoom. 

Tracking Training. All in one spot. (Seeing a trend?) An LMS gives the organization the ability to track training and recall the information with a few clicks. Want to know who took Future Ready Leadership Level 2 in the last 5 years? Want a class list? Want to see the course content? Easy as 1,2,3. MCE will be able to track this for our customers. 

There are other cool options too. Certificates will be automatically produced by the system providing instant recognition. Communities can be created allowing all participants in one cohort to connect and share ideas. Future Ready Leadership graduate groups can be set up to continue the learning journey. 

We are still learning everything our LMS can do and will continue to share with you as we do. And please, share your feedback with us if you yourself take any of our courses or if your employees do. We love feedback!

Our Learning Management System is Live
As Audie mentioned above, MCE has officially moved over to the Thinkific Learning Management System (LMS) based online software. With this new software, we are dedicated to improving the learning experience for our participants.

We are working closely with a few cohorts to start before we open up the site to all courses. We are refining the user experience not only for participants, but also for our design team and facilitators. Watch this video for an idea of what to expect when you engage with mcecor.com.
