When is a Learning Management System Right for Non-Profits?

A Learning Management System (LMS) might be just the tool your organization needs to deliver your education or program content—or maybe not. Investing in an LMS is a big decision that requires ongoing resources to successfully implement and maintain. There are some key questions to ask before acquiring an LMS and best practices to follow when moving ahead with purchasing, implementing and administering an LMS.

Get the inside scoop from non-profit colleagues and non-profit learning consultants who will share their tips for success, pitfalls to avoid, and demo how they’re using this online learning technology.

What you’ll get from attending:

• Clarity on what an LMS is (and isn’t) and what it can (and can’t) do
• An eLearning terminology cheat sheet (re: the basic nuts and bolts of online learning delivery)
• An overview of some of the most common LMS options for small to medium non-profits
• Top LMS mistakes to avoid and tips for success
• LMS use case stories from a panel of 3 small to medium non-profits (why they invested in an LMS, and how they’re using it).
• Steps your organization can take right now (or later) to determine if an LMS is right for you.
