LMS ESIGNATURE – THE NEXT STEP IN SECURITY, INTEGRITY AND EFFICIENCY

Picture a scenario where you need an urgent document signed at that very moment. But what’s this? The CEO is out of town! Panic ensues. Millions of questions run through your head; How will we get his signature? When will he be back? Will it be too late by then? Etc, etc, etc… Now imagine all these issues being made obsolete, with just one education technology – LMS eSignature.

What is an eSignature?

Electronic signatures are “symbols or other data in the digital format attached to an electronically transmitted document as verification of the sender’s intent to sign the document”. To make it simpler, e-signatures are the digital equivalent of handwritten signatures or stamped seals, but with far superior security and lesser risk of impersonation or forgery. In many countries, including the US, electronic signatures have the same legal significance as traditionally signed documents.

  • Reduction of time and costs

LMS e signatures are helpful in reducing not only costs related to resources like paper, ink, printing, etc, but also saves the time that would otherwise be spent on awaiting authorization of the activity of content within the LMS.

LMS e signatures are helpful in reducing not only costs related to resources like paper, ink, printing, etc, but also saves the time that would otherwise be spent on awaiting authorization of the activity of content within the LMS.

  • Faster activities

Since signing documents online is so much faster than signing on paper or waiting for papers to get signed, LMS e signatures will drastically speed up the process of course purchases from the LMS resulting not only faster transaction but better sales.

  • Progress Tracking

waiting for the signing of documents and the subsequent authorization is an extremely tedious process. LMS esignatures eliminate this issue by ensuring quicker document signing as well as a way to track these documents through the LMS.

How do we develop LMS eSignature?

The development of LMS e signatures may vary from software to software. In this case, let’s consider Paradiso LMS as an example, and see how LMS e signatures can be made use of.

To develop an LMS esignature in Paradiso LMS, there are a series of steps to be followed. These steps guide you through the entire process of developing the LMS esignature, right from template creation to actual use. Using the e-signature dashboard, users can create a template for their e signature.

Once created, they can head over to the LMS and add the template to the specific courses that need to be signed. The LMS e signatures can be used by both, teacher as well as students, who are using the LMS courses.

Benefits of LMS eSignature:

Adding LMS e signatures to courses can prevent unauthorized sharing of content and forgery. Since each user has his/her own LMS esignature, their courses will be more secure and only accessible to them or persons authorized by them.certifications

LMS e signatures now hold the same legal power as standard pen and paper document signing, thanks to legislation like the ESIGN Act and the UETA (Uniform Electronic Transactions Act). Not only are LMS e signatures legal, but are in fact considered to be more secure than traditional signatures, which are susceptible to forgery or impersonation. This is because electronic signatures are encrypted and contain all the details of the signer which can be verified easily if required.

Now that the eLearning industry is already increasing the trend of online activity and saving time, money, paper, etc, it only makes sense that documents requiring signatures follow the same path. LMS e signatures help reduce costs, time and resources for the organization and also eliminates the risks associated with previous methods of document storage, like misplaced documents, missing details, etc.

LMS e signatures give the signers the freedom to authorize activities no matter where they may be. E.g. teachers can access their courses, even when they are not physically present, using their electronic signatures.

LMS esignatures is a massive breakthrough in the technological world and the next step towards a paperless, efficient and increasingly secure organizational structure. So don’t wait, develop your own LMS esignature and say goodbye to the woes of tiresome document signing of days past.
