Big or small, every organization strives to bolster its competitive advantage by continually transforming itself to fit the market’s changing needs. Corporate learning and development organization and training and educational content providers can bridge the skills gap. However, they need a modern learning infrastructure and an integrated framework to meet business demands for rapid and efficient upskilling and talent development requirements.

A’ Learning Ecosystem’ refers to a collection of people, processes, and technologies that enables the delivery of targeted learning interventions for each person within the extended enterprise – employees, customers, channel partners.

Instancy is a learning platform that integrates cloud-based software systems and tools with content and people resources to help organizations deliver “the right learning to the right person at the right time”.  
While a learning ecosystem is ever-expanding and evolving with technical innovations, some of its critical components include: 
Learning Experience Platform 
Learning Experience Platform (LXP) is a customer-centric learning software designed to create a more personalized learning experience allowing users to discover new learning opportunities. It recommends a combination of learning content from various sources to support artificial intelligence across digital touchpoints such as desktop browsers, progressive web apps (mobile websites), native mobile apps, conversational interfaces or chatbots, and collaboration apps like MS Teams.  
LMS and LCMS within The Learning Ecosystem 
A Learning Management System (LMS) is different from a Learning Content Management System (LCMS). A learning management system focuses more on the administrative functions needed to manage the learning processes, such as the users, enrollment, and learning progress data management. On the other hand, a learning content management system helps control, reuse, and update content on-demand.  
Monetize Learning Content with eCommerce and Membership Subscriptions 
In many business scenarios, business-to-business and business-to-consumer eCommerce application helps monetize the learning programs an organization offers. A learning ecosystem must integrate with eCommerce tools and payment gateways. eCommerce transactions may include learning program purchases and membership subscriptions to an entire library.
Learning Ecosystem Include HRIS, CRM, and Business Applications 
A Learning Ecosystem must integrate with mission-critical business applications such as websites, content management systems, customer relationship management (CRM), HRIS systems, and other applications. The learning ecosystem needs to be part of your overall technology solution stack.  
Learning Ecosystem and Content Libraries and Blended Learning  
Blended learning allows you to create flexible modules with just the right mix of different media. That’s why it is called blended. Use a combination of physical or virtual classrooms, videos, presentations, interactive assignments, social learning, and robust analytics—design learning paths for your learners for skill development. Blended learning is and will continue to be a critical element of 21st-century education, but only if it is executed with planning and precision. Combining multiple learning modalities, such as self-paced eLearning, virtual classrooms, assessments, and discussions in learning paths, increase learning effectiveness. A learning ecosystem integrates with blended learning libraries to speed up and scale-up learning.
