What is a Learning Management System?
A learning management system or LMS is a software application which provides efficient delivery, tracking, reporting and administration of learning and development programmes.
It can be installed locally on an organisation’s IT system, but most LMS applications are now provided as an internet based system, allowing learners to access the LMS from wherever there is an internet connection.
Every LMS is different, with varying functionality, however usually, courses created in the system can be live training events, webinars, videos and elearning courses. Most LMS’s can be configured to issue completion certificates when learners complete a course, and credit courses with Continuing Professional Development points.
It is usual for each learner’s training history within the system to be able to be reported on, for compliance purposes.
Learning Management Systems vary significantly in cost and ease of use, particularly for administrators.
AIA is proud to offer two cost effective Learning Management Systems.
Knowledge Online © is ideal for insurers and underwriting agencies to provide their own 'college' to their broker and AR partners.
Aisle Learn © (Australian Insurance Skills and Learning Environment) has been built specifically for AIA. It provides an internal learning system for an organisation's own training material, and includes AIA's catalogue of courses. Importantly, it allows the organisation to easily monitor and report on it's compliance with the ASIC continuous training requirements, by providing it's staff with the ability to upload training certificates and log CPD points earned from any provider.
