But what is the LXP really and what does it offer the learner and subsequently the organization? This blog will guide you through the what, how, and why of the LXP.
What is a Learning Experience Platform?
In order to understand what a learning experience platform is, we first need to take a look at the term “Learning Experience”. The term stresses that everything we learn derives from experiences – they can be good or bad, boring or engaging, and don’t necessarily come from a formal learning or educational context. The purpose of using an LXP is to create learning experiences that will have a significant, long-lasting impact on the learner.

With that in mind, let’s highlight the features that make an LXP unique and different from the traditional LMS:
- Learner-centred: When offering a learning experience that caters to the individual learner, the LXP is designed with the learner in mind and acknowledging that one size doesn’t fit all, but that learning experiences should be differentiated, varied, and offer several options for the learner to choose from.
- Learner’s choice: An LXP allows learners to choose their own learning path, their preferred ways of learning, and/or the different content of the courses. This means that they can choose the courses they want to do and work in whatever way that suits them. Hence, learners will be more engaged with the content than when they only take the courses their institution or company assigns to them.
- Collaborative learning: In an LXP, social engagement plays an essential role in creating a valuable learning experience. Meaning that if anyone has information that can be helpful for someone else, they can just share it on the platform for the rest of the community.
In short, an LXP brings together training and experiences to the same digital space where customized learning is the key to success. Furthermore, as you can see, it offers an innovative way to train your employees by increasing engagement and learning outcomes, so they can apply this knowledge to their jobs and boost your organization’s productivity!

Sharing information on posts, commenting over a course assignment, among other features, help learners to develop collaborative and creative skills.
