Learning Management Systems have their benefits, but they’ll never go beyond the static training they offer. What’s more, between 40 and 80% of individuals who start a course online don’t even complete it.
As technology continues to advance, the way we think about learning has to shift too. While Learning Management Systems (LMS) offer a wide range of benefits such as flexibility, accessibility, and cost-effectiveness, there is still an essential element missing from the learning experience: live human interaction.
Through live online HumanQ Group Coaching sessions, we have seen the power of learning, collaboration, and innovation through facilitation by a live Coach bringing together intimate cohorts of business professionals from all levels. In fact, this has proven to be the root of a successful learning process. Group Coaching enhances the learning experience and provides opportunities for participants to receive immediate feedback, guidance, and support. It’s a LMS with a human brain, and maybe more importantly, a human heart.
One of the primary benefits of live human interaction in an LMS is the opportunity for participants to collaborate with their co-workers. This type of collaborative learning has been shown to improve critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and engagement. When people work together, they are exposed to different perspectives and ideas, leading to a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Collaborative learning can also help to develop communication skills, teamwork, and empathy – all valuable skills for success in the workplace.
Another significant benefit of live human interaction in an LMS is the ability for participants to receive immediate feedback, motivation and guidance from an experienced Coach. Feedback is essential for people to understand where they stand, where they might pursue new ideas and what they need to improve upon. In a traditional, automated LMS, feedback can be much more challenging, or even non-existent, because of the limits of automated responses. Group Coaching, or Live LMS, can help participants to identify their strengths and weaknesses and develop strategies to improve in ways an automated LMS simply can’t.
While LMS systems offer many benefits, live human interaction, collaboration, and Coaching are critical components of the learning process that cannot be replaced by technology alone. Incorporating these elements into an LMS can have significant benefits for both companies and employees, leading to more significant long-term outcomes.
