Its a strange thing but, according to the figures, nearly half of the people that use online Learning Management Systems (or LMS) are dissatisfied with what they get out of them. That's probably down to the fact that the people that buy those systems for their workers aren't generally the ones who actually use them. If you really want your employees to engage with learning and development and really push themselves, their peers and their organization, you need a system that they feel was built for them, their goals and their ambitions. Pathfinder turns the LMS concept on its head by empowering workers to find the very best learning processes out there and then track and share them with their colleagues.
Pathgather is a social LMS for business that makes it really easy for employees to discover the best learning content, track what they learn, share their achievements and connect with their coworkers. Up till now, online learning has been fairly anonymous and impersonal but with Pathgather, employees share achievements, set public goals as well as recommending helpful resources. The end result is a social learning environment that motivates and accelerates personal development. First up, the app organizes your learning content and thousands of courses from across the web into one single, searchable learning catalogue making the perfect resource easier to find. Secondly, with your workforce so full of very talented individuals - which is why you hired them in the first place – it’s important to allow the experts in your company to share their skills so that everyone else can follow in their footsteps. Pathgather analytics makes digging into data a breeze. This insightful app analyzes things like: which subjects are trending in various departments, who are the best people in their given fields and can even discover which courses your employees will find the most effective.
Online LMS have revolutionized the personnel training business over the last few years. No longer do we have to send our staff away for training or shut down the business for 'training days' because everything can be done at a sensible pace online. Pathgather takes learning systems in a new direction by changing, once again, the learning process. It creates a learning system put together by the people who use it most and let's you track and remember those systems before sharing them with the rest of the team. It incorporates the skill, knowledge and resources from other staff members to build learning that is far more cost effective and all encompassing.
