In the last entry we took a look at naming conventions for learning management systems (LMS) and how your LMS might look after sorting your training library into four categories: job function, delivery mechanism, technical requirements, and required vs. elective training. This time, I would like to start with a similar idea, but perform the separation or categorization approach according to some of the distinctions that relate to job functions.
What type of work does a particular class address? What kind of workers? Some different categories of training that you might note here are sales training, product technical training, internal computer system training, or training in the safe handling of factory equipment. Each of these categories is going to combine a number of different types of materials and different instructional requirements which will help you define what you need from any prospective LMS.
