As we try to flatten the learning curve, machine learning and artificial intelligence have given us products that help new users learn faster and more efficiently. With a lot of content available digitally, LMS has been the talk of the town for helping content creators to engineer content for its users. But what about the user experience?
And here comes LXP to add real value to your skills and your experience. By definition, a learning experience platform, known as LEP or LXP, is cloud-based software designed to help its users discover new learning opportunities by giving them access to a wide variety of content from various sources where they can produce and distribute their own material using different channels. In other words, it encourages collaborative learning and gives the learner authority over the learning process.
LXP focuses on the ability to facilitate personalized learning for each of its users by giving them access to different courses and competencies which are categorized according to employee roles and responsibilities . They can also access different courses according to the suggestions and recommendations related to previous courses.
LMS is one step towards online learning that gives administrators control over the educational information that users will access. However, with LXP the intention is to help learners collaborate amongst themselves by creating and sharing their own personal content that streams as per their timelines. Since the needs and interests of each individual employee may differ, LXP serves as an excellent personalized learning tool where it focuses on the gamification module. In this, users get the access to different courses and competencies which are categorized according to employee designation and adding more twist to user experience, users can learn through games where they can win badges and points according to the stages and they can also receive the badges according to number of hours invested on the platform.
To make it more customizable – something like a personal coach can also add fun in the user journey. With an immersive user experience, responsive designs, and engaging
look amalgamation of various multimedia websites, learning experience platforms make corporate learning systems more accessible to young and experienced professionals alike.
For a simpler understanding, consider an LXP solution to video streaming services, like Netflix, which presents us with video options based on our set preferences, past user history, and the same account has various users who get personalized streams. Similarly, an LXP gives users multi-dimensional content options like articles, blogs, videos, podcasts, webinars, puzzles, games and more. All this as per the users interest, job role and learning goal. And of course, it’s much more powerful than this, with options of P2P learning, AI driven course scheduling and much more.
