Textbooks are gradually being replaced by digital content, and why should it not? After all, digital content is more accessible and retainable.
Technology is somehow making its way into the world of education.
To speed up the learning process by giving a dash of technology and making the whole learning process interesting, LMS can be used as a very important tool in schools to achieve amazing results.
But, wait. Before letting you know the benefits of using LMS in schools, let us just get a quick idea of what LMS is all about?
“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teachers hand, because it is the pen and the paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world” — David Warlick
What Is An LMS?
Learning Management System is software to create, manage, and deliver courses directly from your cell phone. LMS can be defined as a “Backbone” of digital learning which states that classrooms are no more confined within 4 walls. Learning is a continuous process and one can read or learn something anywhere & anytime whenever they feel like. LMS provides students with a collaborative platform to read and understand the topics without any boundation of time. Also, LMS helps the teachers by making fun and interactive content sharing super easy with their students. In short, LMS basically creates a learning environment where management becomes so easy that you can focus on what’s important: Learning.
Based on a case study of St. Edmunds School, there are practically endless benefits of implementing LMS in School.
BENEFITS OF LMS IN SCHOOLS
1. Access to study materials without any time boundation
It is not possible for every student to concentrate in class when the teacher is teaching any topic. By introducing LMS in schools, study materials, notes, tutorial videos, etc. can be uploaded in one place and can be accessed by the students anywhere and anytime, without any boundation of time.
2. Freedom of Customization
LMS gives the freedom of customizing the content according to the need of the users. The user can deliver the study material in any way they want and it helps the users deliver the content in a more understandable way as they are getting the power to add their creativity for achieving their goals.
3. Personal attention to every student
It’s difficult for a teacher to give personal attention to each student and solve their confusions where there are 30–40 students in every class. LMS resolves this issue as well. LMS monitors the performance of every individual student and makes a plan on how it can be improved by analyzing the weak points and giving suggestions to improve it.
4. Learning becomes more FUN!!!!!
With the addition of eye-catching graphics, brief and simplified video tutorials and thoroughly explained notes, students take learning as a part of enjoyment rather than just a duty or burden that they have to learn the lessons and vomit out it during exams.
5. Everything in one place
In comparison with traditional classroom teaching, LMS can store a large number of data in one place and there is no restriction regarding the data access. Any student who has a proper user id and password allocated by a respective teacher can access the data and can learn accordingly. LMS are eco-friendly as they store each and every information in a detailed manner within the software which replaces the need for books and use LMS instead.
