TechGraph: Can you provide an overview of the current state of Learning Management Systems (LMS) adoption in India? How has the landscape evolved over the past few years?

Jagmohan Bhanver: LMS adoption in India has surged due to the growing demand for online education. The landscape has shifted from traditional classroom setups to hybrid or fully online models. Factors include increased internet access, the need for personalized learning, and the pandemic accelerating digital adoption. This has prompted educational institutions (K12 and higher education) as well as organizations to integrate LMS for efficient content delivery, assessment, and collaboration.

TechGraph: Talgro has been a prominent player in the LMS domain in India. Could you elaborate on the unique features or approaches that set Talgro’s LMS apart from other solutions?

Jagmohan Bhanver: As a product, the LMS has historically been a static system, in the sense that it serves more as a repository of information related to an organization’s learning history. In the current context, that limits the scope of the LMS. An LMS typically lacks the dynamism of an LXP (Learner Experience platform) whereas a LXP falls short of some of the core functionalities of a LMS.

We started building the Talgro LMS-LXP six years ago with the intent of blending the best of both an LMS and an LXP. We kept the Learner at the center of the proposition. At the same time, we designed the product to make it a highly analytical and predictive tool in the hands of the organization.

The Talgro LMS-LXP is an AI and Machine learning-driven product with several ‘firsts’ to its credit. This includes: SCORM compliance, Automatic Personalized Learning paths, Gamification, Deep Analytics that provide real-time insights on Learning content, learner difficulty analysis, Instructor performance, and several other parameters, Recommender engine aided by ML, Online Action Planning to integrate Coaching and IDP (Individual Development Paths) within the LMS-LXP, Online Assessments with multiple formats, Tracking Learner engagement in real-time, Unique six-dashboards for different stakeholders, Continuous Learning, ML aided Instructor selection, and Automatic Report generation on more than a dozen parameters related to each course.

TechGraph: With the rise of remote and hybrid learning models, what role does Talgro see LMS playing in ensuring the quality of education and engagement among learners?
