In-built search functions on most learning management systems tend to frustrate users for three key reasons; they’re slow, they’re stupid and they often present search results that users cannot access due to their permissions.
Instant AI-powered search for LMS’ powered by Algolia solves this, delivering real-time hyper-relevant results as the user types their query.
Here are 8 benefits that AI powered search can bring to your LMS:

- Spelling mistakes and synonyms still generate accurate search results without manual tagging
- Search results work in any language, even if you haven’t provided translations
- Filtering allows users to find specific types of content (such as videos or courses), or filter by other metadata such as authors or dates
- Custom ranking allows you to promote certain types or pieces of content
- Gain powerful analytics to help influence what content you produce next
