What is an Intelligent Learning Platform (ILP)?
An Intelligent Learning Platform (ILP) incorporates learning goals, recommendations, automation and analytics to provide a smarter, personalized learning experience that promotes the mastery of skills and better learning outcomes.
Learning management systems (LMS) of the past had an instructor-first approach. They focused primarily on delivering learning materials and measuring how they were used.
This also meant that students went through courses one-by-one, in chronological order, with no way to personalize them.
Courses consisted of several modules, each with its own sections.
Used to be a manual and tedious process that took a lot of time.
Monitored and graded learners as they went through courses.
Rewarded learners with a certificate for course completion.
In addition to the traditional features, modern LMSs take a learner-first approach, bringing them closer to a learning experience platform (LXP).
The focus is on engaging learners and creating a sense of community through social learning, while measuring their mastery over a specific set of competencies.
Hides or shows content based on a learner’s progress.
Makes learning fun by adding game elements to courses.
Connects learners with each other in dedicated groups.
Measures mastery levels based on competencies.
The evolution of the LMS is towards an Intelligent Learning Platform (ILP), one that empowers users to do and achieve more.
With an ILP, learners get personalized recommendations that provide proactive assistance, enabling learners to see the next best actions in their journey to master goals (e.g., watch a video, participate in a Q&A, enroll in a course, join a study group, etc.)
Learners, on the other hand, benefit from a personalized learning experience based on their goals and career aspirations. They also receive better guidance, as the platform will match them with other learners with shared interests and skills.
Improve learners mastery of skills using goals such as competencies or job roles.
Send personalized recommendations such as courses, groups, and resources.
Learners can easily see their progress through mastered goals and competency levels.
Instructors can access, enable and organize content from third-party providers.
What are the benefits of an intelligent learning platform?
As an extension of traditional e-learning platforms, an ILP can benefit schools and organizations in the following ways:
Receive automatic personalized recommendations based on goals and career aspirations
Detect at-risk learners based on their performance and progress through acquiring new skills
Use a skill gap analysis to determine the current skill level of learners
Broaden an organization’s learning resources by integrating content from third-party providers
Who can use an ILP?
An ILP can be used by any educational institution that wants to provide a personalized learning journey for their learners based on competencies and goals.
It is also suited for companies of all sizes and industries as it guides learners to get better at their job and acquire new skills that can further their career.
