Changing the Learning Management System Definition

Today, learning management systems get teams up to speed by combining technology and learning in one software package where employees thrive and learn. Learning management system software or LMS software, is a holistic approach crafted with creation, delivery, and tracking capabilities for instructional technology-based training.

LMS software allows for the building, administration, documentation, tracking, reporting, and delivery of educational content without the risk that the training administrator will lose control of logistics.

How Lessonly differs from other LMSs

Many Traditional LMS companies like Blackboard, Moodle and many others focus on both educational and business learning. Lessonly changes the typical learning management system definition and hones in on the business side of training to provide the very best, focused solutions for corporate training.

How Lessonly’s focus on corporate training helps you save money and time!


Hiring a new employee is expensive. When hiring a new employee, some of the costs include advertising, interviewing, screening, and hiring. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that it costs about $14,000 to replace an employee. Think about how much money is your company losing due to employee turnover.

A new employee who goes through a well-crafted onboarding process is 69 percent more likely to remain at a company up to three years. Organizations with a standard onboarding process experience 54 percent greater new hire productivity.

Lessonly focuses on providing clients with the learning platform and resources needed to help cut cost the training process. Getting employees properly onboarded increases employee retention and productivity.


At Lessonly, we’re more than just a learning platform to our clients. Our passion for learning makes us want to help companies in the hiring process the best we can. We have created many resources and downloads for content managers to use to save time.

Have a question about the hiring process? We probably have a resource to answer that question. We have everything you need for the onboarding process. Help get your new hire settled in with an employee checklist template. Make sure employees fill out the new employee forms that they need to turn into human resources. From there, an employee development plan will help ensure employee progress. All that being said, anything you need to onboard an employee, we most likely have a resource for you.

Each company is different; therefore, each company’s needs vary. The resources we have created are customizable. We want trainers to take what is helpful and discard what’s not applicable to their company. The resources help your company not to have to go through all of the work of creating material but allows you to tweak the work that has already been done to best benefit your company.
