lms reportingReporting is essential to a successful training campaign. What would the world be like without LMS reporting?

Picture this: you’ve just rolled out a new Learning Management System. You’ve enrolled your employees on it and sent them off on their journey to training stardom. They seem to be having fun and word on the grapevine is that they’re enjoying learning new things…

But how do you find out for sure? Do you hire a clairvoyant? A PI? Do you dress up as an everyday learner and pretend your one of the people? Mingle in the canteen with a bunch of happy sheets in hand?

As much fun as some of these sound, the solution is a robust reporting suite on your LMS that’s pumped full of more analytics functionality than a Tour de France winner is steroids!

You have to face the facts. Your LMS could have the best functionality in the world – but if you’re unable to prove it’s success it has no real value to you. After all, if a tree falls in the forest but no one is there to hear it, did it even fall? AKA: Stats or it didn’t happen!

1. Number of badges created and awarded

This doesn’t only show you how many learners received badges; it demonstrates how active Admins and Managers are on their Academy and whether the introduction of a new badge will fuel the learners’ desire to receive it.

2. How many log-ins per month

Knowing how many learners are logging in each month can tell you how effective your LMS campaign is, month by month. If you introduce a new reward for logging on, hold a competition on your LMS or upload a new piece of content, you’ll be able to monitor the uptake and whether your tactics worked to generate more interest and traffic.

3. Number of bespoke training courses built

4. Number of real-life training events organised through the LMS

This is a biggie! An LMS is a fantastic vehicle for delivering online training solutions that really really work and save time, effort and money. Sometimes real-world classroom training is unavoidable. With effective LMS reporting, you’ll be able to monitor how many classroom bookings were made and who attended them. This is useful if you’re weighing up the pros and cons of expensive training days.

5. Number of questionnaires issued & responses

Want to find out what your learners thought of their classroom training or a particular eLearning module? Simply create a questionnaire on the LMS and invite your learners to complete it. You’ll be able to quickly and easily discover your learners’ reaction to their training and you can use this knowledge to make improvements for future courses.
