Description: Because it is one of the main functions of an LMS, we're looking at course scheduling this month. In this podcast, we'll touch on everything from developing a strategy on how much and when to offer classes, as well as the challenges with scheduling training virtually or across multiple offices. Do you segregate classes by role and what challenges or benefits has that presented with scheduling? Are other departments in your firm using the LMS for scheduling? Finally, how do you promote or communicate your class schedule?
