Why Nobody Cares About LMS Courses in Your Company?

Why is that so? I think there are two main reasons:

LMS courses are not mandatory for employees, so they often skip them, or they do not always cover the knowledge that people need. When they do, people tend to forget them anyway.

Do you remember the last course you took? Or the last time you used your company’s LMS?

It is not a coincidence that the majority of companies use LMS only to track attendance. It is a pretty useless thing for most employees and managers.

There are also other things that make LMS courses useless:

  • They do not always cover the knowledge that people need
  • They are not mandatory, so they are often skipped
  • The information is usually forgotten anyway
  • It is a low-quality material.

LMS courses are often not applicable to your job.

For example, if you are a manager, there is no point in learning how to design an office or how to write a report. You have already been doing this for years and it does not make sense to keep refreshing this knowledge in a training course.

This does not mean that the courses should be irrelevant or useless. On the contrary, they should teach managers skills that they do not know yet and do not have time to learn (but need them).

But here is the catch: the courses should be relevant for managers and their employees – that’s why they are paying for them!

In conclusion, LMS courses should be useful and necessary for the employee, and the information in them should be relevant to their job.
