Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and Luxi have some common ground. Both are platforms where learners can access information, gain knowledge, and obtain much-needed training for educational purposes.
However, there are also a few BIG differences between the two. Let’s take a look at them.
1. Personalization. An LMS offers an alcove of information with access to questions on a wide range of topics. However, there are limitations to its personalization. Learners get to choose what lessons they can start on, but the questions and lessons are the same for everyone the entire time.
Luxi, on the other hand, starts with giving learners a general question and, depending on their answer, tailors the succeeding queries according to their knowledge and proficiency.
2. Customization. Learning Management Systems have the content necessary for everyone, but it lacks the customization needed to battle the learner’s forgetting curve. With Luxi, a learner can engage with the system, giving the AI more knowledge of the user’s strengths and weaknesses. This enables the system to establish a specific time for review when concepts are fading for the learner’s memory to help resolve the forgetting curve. Plus, learning is shorter yet more detailed.
3. Distributed Learning. Luxi incorporates distributed learning principles as a part of its system. This makes it easy to acquire new knowledge that is spaced out evenly during the times when the learner’s cognitive function is at its peak. Meanwhile, Learning Management Systems offer content all at once but lack the personalization needed to space out information and make it available when the learner’s cognitive activity is at its highest.
4. Memory Retention Rate. An LMS contains generic information which can be too overwhelming for some. When the mind is overwhelmed, it filters out information which hasn’t been properly encoded in the brain’s long-term memory.
Meanwhile, Luxi only focuses on relevant information. It customizes content based on the learners engagement with the platform. This results in an increased retention rate that mainly focuses on knowledge that needs to be improved on.
LMS and Luxi are both platforms for learning. However, incorporating AI-powered adaptive learning technologies to develop managers and leaders will enable organizations to apply and scale learning and support in new, highly-personalized ways, well beyond traditional training courses.
