Our Expertise Can Save You from Costly Technology Decisions

Learning Systems Implementation

After months of careful research and countless demonstrations, you’ve finally taken the plunge and decided to purchase an LMS or LXP platform. Now it’s time to implement it. The implementation of your system is as vital as the platform itself. It requires careful planning, buy-in and decision-making from key project stakeholders, a project team, project plan, clear objectives, and proper configuration.

Origin helps your learning platform get off on the right foot. We construct a detailed project plan with milestones, decision-makers, team preparation and communication vehicles, organizational goals, configuration and customization details, content migration planning and importing of user-profiles (if replacing an existing LMS), and more. We then implement the plan with both agility and precision to make the process as painless as possible.

Origin Helps Ensure Your Learning Systems Meet Your Needs from Day One. 

Technology Integration

How your technologies interact with each other is a vital part of the implementation process. For example, does your new LMS have an API integration to connect with your Human Resource Information System (HRIS)? Technology Integration planning helps determine how and what types of data will move between your systems, whether internal or external. It requires an inventory of the APIs to be utilized and a careful mapping of the data’s destination points.

We Have Extensive Experience Helping Clients Integrate Their Technologies for Maximum Efficiencies.

Virtual Labs

Virtual Labs provide a online simulation of a real world environment where learners can safely explore equipment, products, or programs. V-Labs are an extremely useful tool in many industries because they provide the learner with an environment, or sandbox, to explore, experiment, tinker, and test without impacting the organization’s infrastructure and systems. In industries such as technology, for example, learners can put their skills to the test with hundreds of live servers, switches, and routers accessible from anywhere, at any time.
Origin Learning has extensive experience incorporating virtual labs into eLearning course content. By providing hands-on practice using live technology in the context of real-world scenarios, V-Labs enables your people to translate concepts into valuable skills.
