The 3 Essential Tools for Your Corporate Learning Tech Stack

The human ability to recall information may not be as brief as a goldfish, but it’s not far off. Thanks to our on-demand world, we don’t need to remember information for as long as we used to because we can find the answers instantly online. In fact, research shows that humans remember just 58% of new information 30 minutes after learning it, and by a week later, only 35%.

Effective training can no longer rely on live courses and memory alone. Learning and development decision makers must cater to employees’ learning styles and expectations by creating a communication ecosystem that helps them capture, share, and access valuable knowledge when and where they need it—boosting engagement and productivity.

Powering this corporate learning ecosystem requires a three-tiered tech stack:

  • A video conferencing platform,
  • A learning management system (LMS)
  • A video management system (VMS)

Together, these tools effectively support synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous (on-demand) training, as well as text- and video-based learning material in one easy-to-navigate environment.

Video Conferencing for Real-Time Training
Video conferencing solutions like Zoom, Webex, and Microsoft Teams single-handedly empowered companies to transition to remote work faster than anyone could have imagined. It’s as close as you could get to having an in-person experience virtually, and many organizations rely on video conferencing alone to deliver their training programs.

Video conferencing leaves a lot to be desired, however. What happens to all the valuable knowledge shared in live training sessions after you hit “End Meeting?” Live training is just not enough—your employees need on-demand access to learning materials. The question now becomes how to house your growing library of training video securely and consistently.

A Learning Management System for Process and Consistency
Many L&D teams use a learning management system (LMS) like Cornerstone, Docebo, or SAP SuccessFactors to house, deliver, and track training content in one place. An LMS is a powerful tool to support consistent access to materials, track completion for regulatory compliance, and help scale training across an organization—but with one major shortcoming: An LMS is not compatible with video.
Supporting live training with video conferencing and creating processes with an LMS is a good start—the final piece of the puzzle is consolidating your L&D program into one cohesive, engaging, and productive learning ecosystem.

A VMS: The Foundation of Your Learning Ecosystem
A VMS brings all your training tools and content together in an employee-centric video learning ecosystem. Think of it as a secure corporate YouTube—but even more powerful. Create, edit, store, and share videos all in one easy-to-use platform.

  • Easily scale training programs by repurposing content and freeing your team to focus on improving engagement and value.
  • Instantly search any spoken or written word in a training video.
  • Customize the training experience—on any device, anytime, anywhere.
  • Simplify tools and processes through integrations with platforms your team is already using.
  • Track, report, and improve on training with analytics.
  • Transform your training into one integrated, learner-centric ecosystem.

Don’t let your valuable training be forgotten. With a corporate learning tech stack encompassing a video conferencing solution, an LMS, and a VMS, you can capture, store, and enable easy access to your L&D programs to empower learning and productivity across your decentralized workforce.
