The Importance of Choosing a Learning Management System that Works for Everyone

Out of every crisis comes change.

Most of the time, we worry about the bad side of those changes. Will we able to high five a stranger in the stadium after a touchdown? Can we go back into our houses of worship like before, shaking the hands of guests or being blessed by a priest?

But crisis also can bring forth opportunities to improve on systems that needed to grow. For Dither Balderas, LATAM Digital Network & Adoption Manager for Cypher Learning, the COVID-19 pandemic is an inflection point for the future of distance learning.

“I think it’s a critical moment and really a good moment for universities and educational institutions to change and to take this big step toward innovation, taking the step of not always offering the same thing and not being happy to stay in the mode of ‘I’m going to do it, I’m going to try,’” he said.

But universities have to pick a Learning Management System that goes beyond simply being an LMS. Despite that, a lack of planning means he’s seen many institutions opt for platforms they know instead of seeking out the best option for their students and professors.

“We’re staying with the first option that isn’t always the best choice, given that we might not know all the platforms,” he said. “That’s what is happening now, and, unfortunately, universities are listening to these (limited) recommendations and aren’t ending up with the best thing on the market. That’s what I’ve seen at this stage.”
