NAAC endorses Learning Management System for HEIs

NAAC and learning management system

The National Assessment and Accreditation Council is an independent body responsible for the accreditation of higher education institutions in India. NAAC also sets guidelines and makes recommendations to all HEIs to help improve the quality of education they offer. After being pushed to move their course delivery online during the pandemic, higher education institutions have adopted innovations in information technology to improve their online education system. NAAC has also conducted research and emphasized various new-age solutions to facilitate online education in Indian HEIs. One such critical recommendation is the use of a Learning Management System.

 

What is a Learning Management System?

A learning management system is a software solution that enables educational institutions to create a cohesive eLearning platform that streamlines course delivery, compiles learning and teaching data, and improves the online education experience for students, instructors, and administrators. Learning Management Systems (LMS) features include virtual classrooms, simplified homework submission, and convenient class discussions.

Under the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC), NAAC advises higher education institutions to submit an Annual Quality Assurance Report in the authorized format. The NAAC AQAR report is a detailed document that maps the results achieved by the institution in all the crucial areas. In the AQAR report, NAAC emphasizes a detailed account of the adoption and implementation of a Learning Management System for HEIs.

 

Benefits of the Learning Management System

The LMS can effectively automate complicated administrative, financial, and academic processes to improve an institution’s efficiency. Here’s a look at some of the benefits of the Learning Management System –

  • Enrolment & Onboarding – The process of enrolment and onboarding is more straightforward and quicker with an LMS. It creates a flexible environment wherein new users can access academic resources on-demand anytime and from anywhere.
  • Analytics & Data – LMS collects and compiles critical data about teachers and learners in an institution. It also facilitates analysis of the collected data, enabling the institution authorities to draw valuable insights to improve their quality of education.
  • Performance Enhancement – A learning management system helps track student performance and draw insights into the reasons for poor performance in a class, subject, or test. Armed with this information, teachers are better placed to improve their students’ performance and overall learning experience.
  • Learning Pathways – An LMS can be used to create personalized learning journeys for students. Depending on their individual learning style, students can achieve their learning goals at their own pace.

Implementing an LMS in your higher education institution may be the best decision you make this year. It will help you facilitate online education whenever needed; it will also help you create a holistic learning experience for your students.
