Tools for modern business: Google Meet and Learning Management Systems
Google Meet is a video conferencing app–part of Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), which boasted 3 billion users by the end of 2021. Google Meet is widely used for its versatility, easy access, and robust availability. Over 250,000 active daily users can attest to that, and we’ve encountered many professionals who use it as a secure and convenient way to meet internally and to host client meetings.
Within Google Workspace, businesses have access to a custom email and to a suite of collaboration tools like Gmail, Calendar, Meet, Chat, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and more. With such wide usage and popularity, Google Meet is an excellent arena for workplace training. As online seminars have gained traction in L&D methodology, video conferencing is more in-demand than ever; it is certainly here to stay!
Learning Management Systems (LMS) are another prominent fixture in the modern workplace. An LMS is a form of employee management software that offers onboarding training, role-based skill development, and learning materials for professional development. Learners can easily access courses, training programs, and track their progress using an LMS.
What are some top benefits and features of an LMS?
- It supports microlearning, offering shorter sessions to increase engagement, improve knowledge retention, and motivate your team better than traditional training seminars
- It replaces limited corporate intranets as a central source of updated information to help your teams work off the same, easily-accessible information
- Helps you create streamlined learning tracks where admins can easily track learner progress and effectively assess learning in multiple ways
- Easier to scale than traditional training programs. Allowing you to activate new users, and quickly develop, test, and deploy new training materials
When paired together, Google Meet and your LMS support your teams to be more agile, connected and engaged.
