EdTech Insights: What is a Learning Experience Platform (LXP)?

 

Shifting employee experience to the core of corporate learning, the Learning Experience Platform (LXP) is the new black.


 

Acquiring knowledge does not end at university, as emerging technologies are disrupting today’s workplaces, life-long learning and reskilling is essential for the employability and growth of every employee- especially when it comes to competency-based skills including leadership, critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration.

 

While Learning Management Systems (LMS) have dominated the world of corporate learning over the past decades, LXP is more than just the next big Edtech trend. In order for companies to remain competitive, they need to ensure that their employees are staying up to date with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the future.

An LXP is essentially a social learning platform that curates a wide selection of content and learning paths based on an employee’s professional needs and personal learning preferences.

 

LMS is synonym to the classic compliance training programs often led by HR managers. They provide a range of mandatory company-specific courses and supervisors are able to track and report on employee performance based on completion and quizzes. LXPs remove the “one-size-fits-all” and often isolated experience of an employee’s learning experience.

A synonym for corporate upskilling

To meet the need of increasing knowledge gaps and high turnovers, companies are investing more and more into corporate upskilling. An LXP is a centralised solution that ensures employees are not only engaged with training programs, but also gain social and knowledge-based competencies. LXPs are not only able to provide the same company-specific training programs available in an LMS, but they also support learning materials from other content providers, increasing the amount of courses available for employees.

 

What’s the allure in the experience?

As we say in CanopyLAB, learning has always been social, so why should online corporate training programs be built to be completed independently? We’ve built a social learning platform that includes all the collaborative features of social media platforms to enhance user’s learning experience. From sharing information through posts to collaborating a course assignment, our platform enables users to not only gain new knowledge through courses, but also practice valuable competences such as collaboration and creativity.

CanopyLAB’s AI-powered LXP solution curates learning paths through various types of adaptive quizzes that help both the employee and HR managers identify gaps in their knowledge, track progress and personalise their learning pathways. Employees’ learning path is personalised by automatically curating content, level of difficulty as well as instructional delivery methods. Instead of wasting hours on mundane knowledge and tasks already mastered, employees acquire new knowledge through individualised learning paths that constantly adapt to their own pace which improves performance and engagement.

Still on the fence on whether your company ready to take the leap and shift to an LXP? Our next blog post highlights four major benefits of moving to an LXP.
