Learning Management System Administrator (part time)
About LCI UK:
The Lean Construction institute UK (LCI-UK) is an independent, not for profit registered charity, whose members passionately believe that Lean thinking can improve the efficiency and profitability of the UK construction industry in a safe and sustainable way. We are guided by what has become known as the Lean approach which supports organisations towards operational excellence and further developing a continuous improvement culture.
We promote the use of Lean thinking in construction and the associated methods to remove waste in all its forms. We support research into innovative lean methods from across the world, making it relevant to construction and then sharing this knowledge widely for the benefit of the whole of Society.
About this role:
As part of our effort to promote the Lean philosophy, we are about to deploy a Totara LMS to provide e-learning content to enable construction industry companies and professionals to adopt Lean concepts and techniques and we are looking for a part-time front-end administrator for this project (approx. 15 hours per week, flexible working).
The LMS administrator's role will be to take care of the day-to-day operational performance of the LMS, to train learners in how to use the LMS for their own purposes, and to liaise with both the internal LCI project team and the LMS supplier in order to ensure that learners are able to meet their learning goals and that the LCI-UK is able to meet their reporting requirements and stakeholder delivery commitments (i.e. funding bodies).
To do this the administrator will need to develop a good understanding of Lean construction principles as well as the LCI-UK organisation as a whole.
In addition the administrator will need to have (or be willing and able to learn) a high level of knowledge of the Totara LMS front end in order to maintain the operational performance of the LMS and carry out configuration tasks including (but not limited to):
- Defining and configuring user roles
- Configuring users, audiences, positions, organisations and competency frameworks
- Creating and configuring online learning courses and uploading e-learning content
- Creating and configuring reports
- Applying visual/theme settings as required
Essential skills and experience:
- Totara/Moodle front-end administration experience
- Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
