1. Include Self-Registration Buttons On Your Website Employees should have ample opportunity to enroll in your online training course. As such, you need to place self-registration buttons on the LMS home page and internal company website. Use eye-catching colors and images to make the buttons pop off the page. It’s also wise to briefly highlight the benefits of the online training course. You can even include a call to action that poses a thought-provoking question to catch their attention.
2. Integrate Social Media Sign-Ups
Most employees spend a significant amount of time on social media. Whether they’re chatting with friends on Facebook or looking for quick tips on Twitter. Thus, you may want to provide self-registration links on your social media page. Better yet, groups that are dedicated to specific training topics. Those who belong to the group already fit certain criteria. For example, they’re members of your HR team who conduct interviews and enforce company policy. Thus, your latest compliance online training course is of interest to them. Some LMS platforms even allow users to sign up directly using their social media profiles. No need to create a separate user name or password. In addition, they’re able to post course progress updates and achievements directly to their social media page.
3. Gather All Pertinent Data During The Enrollment Process
4. Always Send A Confirmation Email With Relevant Links
Another important item of information to collect during the LMS self-registration process is the employee’s email address. You can then send them a welcome message that features pertinent online training course details, such as how they can access valuable online training resources and what’s expected of them. For example, do they need to achieve specific learning objectivesby the end of the online training course? Emails also allow you to confirm users, which authenticates LMS self-registration.
5. Use Moderated Registrations For Exclusivity
LMS platforms generally provide 2 forms of self-registration. The first is open/free enrollment that allows anyone to join the online training course without admin approval. The second is moderated registration, which requires admin review. The LMS administrator you appoint is able to evaluate all of the self-registrants before granting them access to the online training course or denying them entry if they don’t meet the prerequisites. Moderated sign-ups are great for exclusive online training courses that are intended for targeted groups or job positions. For example, new hires in your customer service department or managers who need to renew their leadership online training certifications.
