Three Reasons Why Deep Linking Is Crucial in an LMS

This month’s blog comes from TutorPro HQ and we are excited to share some critical information about Deep Linking and how important it is in an LMS. There are three key elements that we feel are of value to provide.

An important factor tied to all 3 of these points is that with Single Sign On (SSO) no one is required to log in when they enter the TutorPro LMS. In essence, SSO makes access very simple and seamless. This is a pertinent feature, since everyone has had the experience of having to try to recall “What’s my password again?!”

1. Learners Can Share Courses

The first element that we would like to touch on is the value of our ‘Share’ feature. It allows employees to collaborate and engage with each other, by sharing a link to a course or by sending an email to another employee with the link included. The email can be sent directly to the coworker’s Outlook mail and accessed immediately in real-time.

2. One Link, Multiple Event Enrolment Options!

The LMS Calendar can often become very busy! Imagine you have 20 events, or webinars, scheduled on the Calendar for one course. Rather than emailing 20 separate links out for each event or asking staff “When do you want to attend”, LMS Administrators can quickly and easily send one link which can show all upcoming calendar events. This is a handy feature that expedites scheduling while again, making for a pleasant learner experience.

3. Seamlessly Launch Courses From Any Device

Finally, another much-loved feature is the ability to broadcast any course type, with a link, and for employees to get immediate access to the course. Sending a broadcast email is a terrific and efficient way to make sure learners get what they need, even when they’re on their mobile!

What Do Our Clients Think About Our Deep Linking Functionality?

We love sharing feedback from our wonderful Client Family Members about how our solutions provide positive experiences for their teams. This quote from Janette Nicholson, at McMillan LLP, speaks to how deep linking has been a true asset:

The training calendar is intuitive and user-friendly for our legal staff who may not have a significant amount of time to spend perusing an overly complicated calendar. Once a user registers for a scheduled learning session, calendar appointments automatically follow. What's most refreshing about TutorPro's LMS is that there's never a need for users to be pre-enrolled in a course and the "learner launch links" that can be sent from each course. This allows our company to incorporate direct course links in communications as well as through our company intranet!”
