8 Reasons Why Your Organization Needs an LMS with a Content Library


Absorb LMS


As an administrator of a learning management system (LMS), you understand the pivotal role that quality learning content plays in your organization's training programs. Crafting engaging, informative content isn't a task you can check off your list in an afternoon — it demands time, creativity, and deep insight into your employees' needs. Add to that the complexities of curating and maintaining this valuable content, and you might find yourself wishing for a simpler, more streamlined solution. 

Tap into an LMS content library 

That’s where content libraries come into play. They’re rich repositories filled with ready-made courses covering an array of areas — specifically designed to cater to different industry verticals and organizational roles. Imagine having access to a vast library filled with content for every potential topic related to online learning and training. Sounds like a dream, doesn't it? 

With content libraries, this dream becomes a reality. They allow you to swiftly populate your LMS with high-quality courses, drastically reducing the time it takes to launch a new training program. Instead of spending weeks or even months developing a curriculum from scratch, you can hit the ground running in minutes. This approach not only accelerates the rollout of employee training but also demonstrates a return on investment (ROI) from day one. 

Now, you might be wondering, "What if my organization has unique training needs? Can I still make use of content libraries?" Both answers are a resounding yes.  

A robust LMS allows for a blend of both customized content specific to your organization and pre-made content from the library. This combination affords you the agility of readily available content, while still providing tailored learning experiences specific to your needs. So, if your current system doesn't offer this feature, it's certainly one to prioritize in your next upgrade. 

Benefits of an LMS with content libraries 

The benefits of integrating a content library into your LMS are numerous and can truly revolutionize your training program. Let's explore these advantages in more detail: 

  • Fast execution of training strategy: An LMS with a content library accelerates your training strategy by eliminating the time-consuming tasks of content creation and curation of courses. It provides seamless access to pre-built and pre-validated content that can be launched in just a few clicks. 
  • Broad range of topics and formats: With a variety of subjects and presentation styles available, content libraries engage learners in their preferred learning format. 
  • Continuous refreshment of content: Regular updates to the content library help ensure training materials stay relevant and reduce the risk of non-compliance fines — particularly for organizations with shifting compliance mandates. 
  • Improved productivity: Replacing in-person, instructor-led courses with online learning equivalents leads to significant productivity gains, freeing up valuable time for in-house trainers. For example, in the healthcare industry, staff can shift from training colleagues to direct patient care. 
  • Quality and convenience: Content libraries provide trustworthy, high-quality training materials precisely when you need them — enhancing the convenience factor for both administrators and learners. 
  • Wide range of  topics: Content libraries offer mobile-ready courses across various skill-development topics like marketing, human resources compliance, sales, and workplace safety — making your learning and development strategy more robust than ever. 
  • Custom learning paths: By allowing for the creation of customized learning paths, content libraries enable personalized learning experiences, catering to the unique needs of different roles and skill levels. 
  • Blended learning environment: With an LMS like Absorb, you can integrate your eLearning content library with your existing training setup, creating a comprehensive blended learning environment.
