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:

  • Search results are instantaneous – presenting “as-you-type” results
  • 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
  • Algolia indexes all of your LMS’ data and searches performed by your customers uses Algolia’s servers – reducing strain on your LMS/server
  • Total design flexibility – we can brand it, customise how results are presented and add in new meta (such as author names or thumbnails)
