Online DAM training - do you need it?

Digital asset management (DAM) is a must-have for most businesses, especially those dealing with large numbers of digital files. A DAM system offers a centralised repository for the storing and retrieving of files, making the entire process much quicker and simpler.

But DAM is still a relatively new system, with many businesses not using it to its full potential. That’s where online DAM training comes in. Some providers offer online training courses, focused on all things DAM. From metadata to right management, there’s a class for everything.

Do you need the training, or can you figure it out for yourself? Keep reading to find out…

Online DAM training

Understanding the system

You’ve had your DAM implemented for a while now, everything is running smoothly, and you know how to use it well, right? So, why would you need online training?

In short, while your system may be running well, saving time and resources, you may only be scratching the surface when it comes to DAM potential. Online training isn’t just about learning to use the system. It allows you to gain an insight into how to manage your assets and make the most of your management system.

Refresher sessions

Online DAM training can be especially useful as a quick, refresher session for administrators, to get new staff up to speed in no time or to boost office productivity.

Maybe there are specific areas that you want to improve on? There are a wide range of training topics on offer and you can simply choose areas you want more information about. Below are just a few of the different topic areas to work on…

  • Metadata
  • User engagement
  • Creating a taxonomy
  • Admin roles
  • Workflow
  • New apps
  • Rights management
  • Brand asset management

Choosing online training

There are a lot of different sites out there offering DAM training, all claiming to provide the best insights. So, how do you know which one is right for you?

Here are a few key things to look out for that determine whether the training is right for you:

  • How are the training sessions carried out? Are they weekly online videos, a pdf that you download, or do you get to speak to a professional?
  • Which topics are addressed in the course? If your key areas aren’t covered in enough detail, the course isn’t right for you.
  • Is the company reputable? Is it a recent start up, or do they have experience working with DAM?
  • Are they the same company that provide your system? Getting your training from your provider will provide greater insights into the specifics of your system.

Is online training right for you?

Of course, not everyone wants or needs online training for their DAM system. You may like the way yours is being run and not see the need for any changes. However, if you want to learn more about the technology and learn how you can maximise the potential of your system, online DAM training is great.
