Editor’s Note: Welcome to a new Expertus blog series! Here we’ll cover common LMS admin challenges and unique and easy ways that the ExpertusONE LMS solves them. Up first is training calendar issues.
Ask any LMS admin and one of their biggest frustrations involves the training calendar. The way most systems are setup, an admin only sees one static in-line view. So they can’t aggregately see what they’re scheduling, much less what other admins are requesting.
Not only does this result in double-booked classrooms, instructors and events….
But it also means that precious, costly resources (training rooms/computers/instructors) are not fully optimized…
And many courses have to be reoffered because learners miss the first go-around.
The result is extra, repetitive, frustrating work for admins, and thousands upon thousands of dollars wasted for L&D organizations.
ExpertusONE has a better solution!
Global Training Calendar
Designed like Google Calendar, ExpertusONE’s fully modernized training calendar enables every admin from all of your company locations to view the same learning calendar in real-time. So they see to-the-minute availability for training resources (instructors, classrooms, seats, etc.)—which eliminates double-booking and other scheduling errors.
Admins can also filter their color-coded view by the day/week/month and highlight data of interest to quickly prioritize tasks and easily see what’s in queue—meaning they’ll be more effective. And they’ll also be more efficient since the training calendar has drag and drop scheduling (fewer clicks with no pop-ups) and exports to Excel for convenient reporting.
How L&D Cashes In
With the ability to see a global training calendar, your admins can quickly, and accurately, identify openings to boost overall training efficiency. Which leads to a tighter, more efficient training catalog. And translates into better resource management.
The bottom line… with a modern calendar system at your disposal, it will be easier to fill classes and make training more profitable.
