LMS Needed But Can Improve, Says Survey

A study of Learning Management Systems users, conducted by the E-learning Guild this year, revealed the following:

• 70.6% of surveyed organizations use an LMS, and 79.5% of organizations with more than 5,000 workers use an LMS.

• 94.6% are convinced that a LMS is essential to their organization; 95.5% believe a LMS allows people to access learning more easily; and 94.3% assert that a LMS allows members to distribute better learning throughout the organization.

• LMSs score low satisfaction scores, particularly for the ability to support specific and complex business process models (2.28), support for immersive learning simulations (1.62), support for talent/human capital management initiatives (2.23), and support for Web 2.0 features (1.87).

• The average costs to acquire, install and customize a LMS for all industries and organization sizes is $85.68 per learner.

• The average cost to maintain the LMS is $44.62 per learner
