Everyone likes to develop themselves, whether it’s their professional or personal life, growth is desired by all. A wise man once said, “Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together”. As educational institutes including private training institutes, colleges, and universities, it is their responsibility to present the students all the infrastructure that they may need for their growth. Ultimately, the students’ growth rate is, de facto, the growth rate of the colleges too; stronger together.

          1.Engaging Classrooms

[spacer height=”20px”]

We all have come across this situation, one way or the other, where students instead of staying and concentrating on what is being taught, got bored, and decided to abandon the session or classroom altogether. How demotivating!! So, how do we make learning, rather more specifically, the classes, more interesting and engaging for the learners? How do you keep them glued to what is being taught? The solution lies in understanding the problem. People, not just students, are stuck to their smart devices and teaching them with a blackboard and pen, is not an ideal solution now, is it?

With a LMS, institutes and colleges can deliver their courses in a more engaging fashion by going digital. Add real life scenarios, videos, and presentations to give more for your students while also keeping them engaged. Study materials can also be shared real-time, eliminating the need for the students to take notes. Better engagement means better knowledge acquired and better results.

          2. Effective Education

[spacer height=”20px”]

Outcome Based Education (OBE) is a theory that focuses on goals and objectives to be achieved through education. Say the student is being taught a subject. Traditional teaching methodologies are based on explaining the subjects without the need to define the learning objective(s).

OBE defines that for every subject which is been taught, there should be objectives which must, as well, be explained to the learners. The learners, too, get to know the importance of acquiring the knowledge of the subject rather than just sitting, for the sake. OBE also claims that when learners understand what and why they are studying a subject, it is more likely that the students focus on it more than when they don’t.

          3. Realigned Training

[spacer height=”20px”]

The curriculum of a college is modeled based on a set of guidelines and standards that adopt a system where all the students get equal opportunity to pursue a career of their choice. Adapting the curriculum according to the latest trending technologies is an impossible task as trends keep changing ever so often. So, it is advisable for colleges to have a set curriculum and offer realigned, industrial training for the benefit of their students.

Organized, relevant industrial training on trending technologies, aligned directly to the academic curriculum will provide further opportunities for the students and help get them their first job in a field or industry of their choice. Do away with last minute scheduling, lack of faculties or infrastructure due to unforeseen circumstances, postponement of exams or labs as all these activities gets organized “on-the-cloud” through the LMS.

          4. Flexibility and Personalization

[spacer height=”20px”]

Everyone has their own preferences, likes to be treated individually and this applies to the faculties and learners too. A LMS can offer this personalization as the faculties can plan and perform focused training sessions for their students in subjects or areas which might need improvement. It also gives flexibility for the faculties to manage their time better, as their individual work could be completed offline, not necessarily from a designated centre like their campus.

And, the learners too can get benefited as they could submit their assignments from their own comforts, as long as it is within the stipulated time. All in all, it’s a win-win for all!

          5. Do More, Achieve More

[spacer height=”20px”]

With a LMS on their side, the students get the freedom to do more during their time at college and beyond. Let us briefly consider a typical day of a student at an institution – attends the classes during the day and spends the evening pondering why. Recreate the same scenario with the addition of a LMS which offers its learners more than just “attending classes”.

Through the labs environment of a LMS, the learners can practice and develop their coding skills, whenever and wherever. It also provides an opportunity for the students to do real time industrial projects so that they can get hands-on, practical, problem solving, on-the-job skills. Assign Tasks and Assessments to test their knowledge, understand the strengths and weaknesses to provide feedback on the same so that the learners get to know them too.

Colleges are no more just about attendances and exams; they should act as a guide and provide an ample platform for their students’ careers by understanding their individual skillsets.

          6. Job-Ready Students

[spacer height=”20px”]

This is one of the, if not the, most important factors for any college. Colleges, of this era, must provide the students with everything they could so that they can become job-ready. Apart from providing quality infrastructure and curriculum, every college should focus on this attribute as this is crucial for the students to start their careers.

A LMS can help in this aspect by providing a platform to conduct this extensive, industry relevant, skill oriented training programs. Use live, online video conferencing tool to organize, administer, and deliver focused coaching or training sessions anytime. Labs, Projects, Assessments, Tasks can be assigned and evaluated so that the students become job-ready before graduation without compromising their social life in a college.

          7. Less CapEx, More Growth

[spacer height=”20px”]

Take a scenario where a college is setting up a lab for the students. Inevitably, it requires a top-class facility with power back-up, tables, chairs, fans, cooling ducts, and the list goes on. The investment required for this is, of course massive, and it does not end there. They need to be constantly maintained and renewed every couple of years too.

A LMS can help colleges do away with these pricey expenditure by taking it online; state-of-the-art, 24×7 availability, secured online labs environment, projects environment, and the learning engine. The students and faculties do not necessarily need a facility as they can complete their tasks from classrooms or anywhere of their convenience. When boundaries are broken, expect high performance.
