How does it work?

Open eLMS works to deliver and manage apprenticeships…

For the Apprentices:

Easy-to-Use e-Portfolio

Functional skills elearning in Netflix style interface

Open eLMS for Apprenticeships has a simple and functional user interface, allowing your apprentices to easily access training resources directly, and within a system that is designed to mirror services they already use, such as Netflix.

Multi-Platform Learning

Open eLMS Learner interface

Open eLMS for Apprenticeships can supply relevant elearning based upon individual standards, from within its library of courses, or your own. The system can accept and manage a large variety of resources, including classroom training, mentoring, videos and webpages, and make it easy to locate and navigate between them.

Evidence Upload and Management

Sign off attestation in the LMS

Whilst apprentices can upload evidence to their own e-portfolio and assign it to a specific standard, the system will seek evidence from the apprentice on a timescale designed to map key achievements against milestones which have been set in accordance with each standard.

For Trainers, Coaches, Mentors and Quality Assessors:


Apprenticeships and the LMS Management System

When using the e-portfolio system, all stakeholders can track apprenticeship progress, and if they wish to, schedule milestone meetings or send general words of encouragement via integrated communication platforms. Furthermore, Open eLMS for Apprentices can automatically link these meetings to the calendars of both parties.


Management Dashboard for the LMS

Coaches and assessors can also monitor the progress of apprentices, and have access to full tracking data which is as granular as individual competencies and standards.


Sign off work on the LMS with Digital Signatures

Once an apprentice has uploaded evidence of their learning, and work towards a standard, it will be queued in a task list for their assigned manager to review and sign-off. Email notifications can be sent when evidence is uploaded, and when it has been signed off.

For Content Developers:

eLearning Creation

Open eLMS Creator for authoring elearning

Creating elearning is easier than you think when you pair Open eLMS for Apprentices with the most advanced, cloud based authoring software available – our own Open eLMS Creator software allows you to create your own bespoke elearning and tailor it to a standard of your choosing.

Resourceful by Design

Vimeo and YouTube on the LMS

Why limit your apprentices to SCORM-based elearning? We can learn from a vast range of sources, and Open eLMS is designed to reflect that – YouTube videos, webpages and classroom training can all be managed and maintained from within the software.

All Platforms, All Devices

Open eLMS Adaptable LMS interfaces for mobile and desktop

Open eLMS for Apprenticeships is fully compliant with HTML5 & PHP standards – it works on any device, on any browser
