Learning Management System for Non Profits
Many non profits have to deal with higher than average employee turnover. In addition you may need to train volunteers who come and go quickly. This means it is important to make the training process as efficient as possible.
With Groundwork1 you can automate your non-profit's training process. Allow your employees and volunteers to complete their training on their own time from their own email inbox, like they might read an email newsletter.
Simple email based training for your non-profit. Train employees or volunteers quickly and easily.
You can enroll new volunteers in the Groundwork1 learning management system and let them read the materials in their own email inbox (mobile or desktop!) Lessons can come with images/diagrams, videos, quizzes, file downloads, and other types of training materials.
This LMS for non-profits allows you to build training courses with your existing materials and deliver them seamlessly to trainees. With Groundwork1 you don't have to nag people to finish their training materials, just let the system follow up on incomplete training. You can track employee or volunteer training progress and see who has finished their assigned coursework.
Starting a training program for your non profit has never been easier with email-based learning management software like Groundwork1.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why would a non profit need a LMS?
Non profits are often constrained by time and money, they may also have higher turnover for employees or volunteers. Since there may not be time or resources for individualized training plans, then it may be helpful to standardize the training plan so that it can be easily assigned to new staff or volunteers. These automated training plans can get them up to speed faster and without using additional time and resources from already busy staff that are working there.
What makes a LMS better for non profits than others?
Many learning management systems are built for huge schools or enterprises which have very different needs than a non profit organization:
Non profits may have to deal with volunteers or part time staff. These workers may not have their own device and email address provided by your organization. They may be using their own mobile or other devices to access the training on their own time. Non profits need an easy way to train volunteers and get them going quickly.
Some learning management systems are huge and require whole technical and non technical teams to implement. These can take months if not years to implement. Non profits are more dynamic and need to be able to get up and running quickly.
How can I create a simple volunteer training program?
One option is to send the training materials through email with a training app like Groundwork1. This will allow volunteers to read and watch the training quickly and easily but still allow you as the training manager to view their progress and course completion. You will need to provide the training materials and upload them into the course creation software. You can even require them to sign something at the end of the training to ensure they have understood the material and agree with your organizations requirements and values.
