The world of work is changing and how we do business, communicate, and learn are expanding as well. As the future approaches, 52% of executives feel that students are entering the new workforce unprepared and lacking in major skills, such as problem-solving, teamwork, and communication. One thing that has been around but hasn’t been given enough credit or utilized to its full potential are learning management systems.
Learning management systems, or LMS, are education organization suites that take the hassle out of not only learning but teaching. They give students the technology, feedback, and creative engagement they want and need. They give teachers the tools to help students harbor creative intelligence and accountability. 40% of students report that the opportunity to use technology in school is the biggest change they hope for, and almost half of teachers cite an overbearing curriculum as a roadblock to building creativity in their students.
LMS address these and other concerns. Systems such as Google Classroom, Moodle, Edmodo and other higher ed-centric systems show that the LMS is here to stay. Currently valued at just over $5 billion, the global market for LMS is expected to grow almost 16% annually, with a projected 2025 value of $18.44 billion.
Google, Microsoft, and Apple offer their own brick-and-mortar devices, an option with proven success in student growth, instructor feedback, and collaboration. While every LMS is different and each has its advantages and disadvantages, all have one thing in common: they are preparing today’s students for the world of tomorrow.
