4. Monitor progress and performance
While conducting virtual lectures and conferences are useful in today’s condition, it can get challenging to keep track of everyone’s activities and performance in “class”. Thus, the biggest benefit of having LMS is its analytics and reports regarding the effectiveness of your online courses.
LMS helps monitor students’ progress and performance in the course. It has an in-built feature that keeps track of their records, grades, submissions, and engagement with the course. Likewise, it collates important files and documents shared by the students in the platform. These, in turn, will measure their progress in the course. You can also create milestones which students need to achieve, step by step, to ensure that they are right on track with the course progression.
Most importantly, LMS can pinpoint areas in your lessons or course that need improvement. It can suggest activities and supplementary learning materials that you can add in your syllabus. It can assist in identifying which of your students will need extra guidance to get through the course.
