Description

While learning management systems (LMSes) are a specific technology class, plenty of other technologies have been harnessed and retrofitted for learning purposes. Alternate LMSes include social media platforms like Twitter and survey systems. This presentation summarizes the uses of an online research (survey) suite, Qualtrics, for large-scale compliance-based trainings at Kansas State University. Affordances of Qualtrics as a training LMS include the following:

  • a multimedia approach (including mobile)
  • a file upload approach
  • logic functions
  • branching logic for versioning a training (based on profiles or behaviors)
  • a scoring feature for grading performance
  • logic tools to set standards for pass/fail
  • built-in data analytics tools,
  • a dashboard for versioning different reports for different data clients
  • an API for recording training completions and performances in information systems
  • and easy data export for external analytics.

This presentation will include a demonstration of several training tracks.
