Frequently Asked Questions

What LMS is the easiest?

Many learning management systems can be very complicated and take months to implement. An easy LMS sets itself apart by removing extra functionality and focusing on what is important. Groundwork1 is a user friendly learning platform that you should try out if you are in the market.

  • Easy to Implement: It can be implemented by one person without the need for complex integrations or a lot of system configuration.
  • Easy to Create Course Content Take your existing learning content and use the drag and drop course creator to upload and organize your lesson content.
  • Easy to Take Courses Groundwork1 sends lesson content directly to a trainee's email inbox. They can click video and other links and start their lesson without having to login or search to find the correct training.

Having an easy LMS helps you get your training out there as soon as possible and by making the training more simple it can help to increase completion rates for your trainees.

What makes a LMS easy to use?

When evaluating learning management systems you should primarily be concerned with two aspects of how easy a LMS is to use:

The first aspect is how easy is it for you as the training manager to create your training content within the learning management system? Obviously you want it to be as easy as possible and have useful tools as you put together and organize your learning materials, but you can put up with a little bit of frustration as long as it works.

The second and more important aspect is how easy is it for your employees to take the training and complete it? You want this step to be as easy as possible, because employees are busy and if there is any friction along the way they will get frustrated and give up. The easier the training is to take, the more likely you will have a good completion rate.

What is a Saas LMS?

SaaS stands for "Software as a Service", this means that you are renting the software and you did not purchase it outright. It also tends to mean you don't have to install the software and keep it up to date because it is installed and maintained on a server that is owned by the vendor of the software rather than your own organization.

LMS stands for "Learning Management System". This is a type of educational software that allows you to create courses and lessons comprised of videos, documents, quizzes, and other materials for teaching someone a new skill or an important topic. You can learn a lot more in our article that talks more about what a SaaS LMS is.

How can I create a simple employee training program?

One option is to deliver training material through email with a training app like Groundwork1. This will allow employees 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 material and upload them into the course creation software.
