LMS Administration

The examples here are from a church staff and volunteer training that was administered through a third-party Learning Management System (LMS). I set up the LMS, created all the training materials and managed users.

The Challenge

 Existing training was out-of-date, unorganized, and 100% text-based. A large amount of information had to be organized and presented in a manner that worked in an Instructor-Led Training (ILT) environment and an asynchronous online environment. The online version of the training needed to be accessible to learners with varying levels of computer skill.

My Solution

I organized the information into manageable, situation-based modules and created a series of visually stimulating presentations and interactive images followed by active engagement tools. The format works well with both in-person and online environments.


In order to track learners and their progress through the training, the online version was housed in a LMS. This particular LMS features a clean and simple interface, which lends itself to learners who have little experience in online learning. As a no-cost solution, it is also friendly towards tight-budgeted non-profits. 

Why This Course Works

  • Information is presented in easy-to-process units.

  • Interactive elements such as the Thinklink image (above) keep the learner actively engaged. 

  • Discussion areas help learners process information by sharing their own insights and stories, which is important when dealing with sensitive or unsettling material.

  • The LMS allowed supervisors to easily distribute the training and monitor  participation.
