Going beyond the traditional constraints of the Learning Management System, the Learning Experience Platform (LXP) typically provides consumer-grade experiences to users in a variety of different ways. They tend to extend way beyond the capabilities of an LMS. And in order for them to be successful, we believe they must include many modern, innovative features.

Here are the top ten essential features of any good LXP. In handy dandy infographic form. Nice.

Any platform which cites itself as a next-gen system should have these features. But there is a caveat: learner engagement isn’t caused solely by new tech. Improvements in engagement come from steadfast dedication to evolving cultures, shifting mindsets and an ongoing, continuous commitment to change.

The good news is the likes of a Learning Experience Platform, laden with the features we listed above, can help you with that change. They can support you in your evolution and encourage your learners to love the technology they need to use to be better at their jobs. It’s not a fantasy. It’s 2019 and the real change learning technology needs is here.
