Understanding integrations is critical to your ongoing LMS stability



Recently working to educate the market further on the importance of integrations, Acorn LMS has tapped into their internal subject matter experts to shed light on the critical role integrations play. For context, a learning management system (LMS) is a digital education environment used by universities, HR teams, government departments, RTOs and more. Integrations refer to the capability of an LMS system to merge and share information with other software applications. This ultimate guide is available now to read on Acorn Labs.

 

Integrations tap into the comfort and familiarity of existing systems, thereby saving time and reducing manual labour. Those who implement an LMS and don’t consider integrations may find themselves with unconnectable systems which can’t easily collate data between the two. What exactly can some of these integrations do you might ask?

 

Single Sign-On (SSO) is all about using one unified system to log into multiple applications. An LMS can be part of this system, if it supports it. A Customer Relationships Management (CRM) system manages and analyses customer data. Connecting this information to the LMS allows you to get a better sense of customer needs quickly and efficiently.

 

“Integrations impact not only the user experience, but your business outcomes. For example, HRIS integrations allow learning and people data to be pulled between LMS and HR systems. This means strategic workforce planning activities are better informed, allowing you to make timely adjustments.” - Blake Proberts, Pursuit Technology Managing Director.

  

This is just the tip of the iceberg on some very useful information about what integrations are out there, and what they are able to do to help make your LMS experience smoother and easier.
