Move over LMS, here comes LXP – or the Learning Experience Platform.
In early 2018, L&D thought-leader and founder of Bersin Deloitte, Josh Bersin, spotted a trend and coined a new phrase: ‘in the flow of work’.
The idea behind this was that the employees want to learn something in the moment of need, and apply it instantly. And this is at the heart of the learning experience Platform or LXP.
Bersin naturally predicted that LXP will replace the veritable LMS. And that’s because LXP encompasses all of the varied ways that individuals learn in that flow of work – which includes lunchroom conversations with colleagues and social learning. Imagine how this changes the learning experience, and how it differs from conventional Learning Management Systems.
But if this sounds too chaotic, you might have some company amongst the in-the-know L&D professionals who are left wondering how the likes of workplace communication tools like Slack and Udemy are going to be calibrated into learning analytics.
