Sydney, Australia – One of the most frequent things I’ve heard over the years is, “Why do I do so much training just to learn how to use my new Learning Management System (LMS)?” As frustrating as that question sounds, it really is accurate to how many administrators feel when they are just getting started with a new business tool that is supposed to be making their life easier. In reality, an organisation’s decision on an LMS is largely driven by the usability for the end user rather than for the lowly administrator(s). Being aware of this ever-present frustration, we set out to create something that focuses just as much on the administrator’s experience as it does on the learner’s. We want to keep the hard working and passionate learning administrator as happy and productive as possible. This is why, we’ve launched Birch to the world – a brand new digital learning experience for everyone – administrators, learners, managers and more.
4 Key Components
- GOALS are made up of elements which a user completes to maintain compliance or achieve completion. Use goals to easily control the flow from one element to another.
- ELEMENTS are learning activities such as SCORM, reading a file, watching a video, attending a workshop/class, taking an assessment, assessor checklists, manager signoff, completing surveys with various types of results (certificates, CPD points).
- CONNECTIONS remove the limits of traditional user and course structure. Connect things together the way that works for you. Create dynamic target audiences, automate compliance, group users, make teams, build workflows, and even enhance reporting.
- TAGS amplify reporting and integration capabilities. Simplify searching, showcase featured learning activities and enhance reports. Tags can be added to Users, Goals, Elements and Connections.
Keeping in line with making an administrator’s life easier and more productive, a simple combination of these Key Components is all you need to build and design learning programs for your organisation. This configuration can be as simple as a single activity that needs to be completed by a learner or as complex as a compliance workflow with multiple elements that renews each year. Either way, the setup and configuration is the same and very easy and intuitive to setup. Here’s an example of what a simple goal (such as a new employee program) could look like:
