LMS Machine Learning Drives Business Success

How do learners build skills if they can't find the content they need in your LMS? Answer: they can't. LMS machine learning connects learners with relevant content precisely when they're looking for it—boosting productivity, increasing learner engagement and providing L&D leaders actional intelligence. An LMS that leverages this technology empowers learners to quickly grasp knowledge and propels L&D initiatives forward. This makes your learning program even more valuable to your organization.

How Absorb LMS Machine Learning Works

Leveraging the power of machine learning, Smart RankingTM is an Absorb feature that provides the best possible search results—and it comes standard for all Absorb users. As users search for terms, the algorithm learns from what they select to present better results to future users. For example, if many people search for a term and most of them click on the eighth result presented, that result will move up the results, making it easier for others to discover the content they were looking for. Results are continually re-ranked based on learner choices to deliver the best, most relevant options.
