What are learning management systems?
A learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting, automation, and delivery of educational courses, training programs, or learning and development programs. It offers benefits to learners and educators by monitoring students’ achievements, by offering flexible learning modules, providing different types of learning activities, etc. The flexibility brings with it more independence for the student but also the need for more self-direction and self-motivation.
The role of the Learning Management System in today’s world is more than managing training administration, scheduling of courses, classroom training, mandatory compliance training, and certifications. It includes offering a learning path, tracking the learner’s progress, providing personalized content, offering social learning to the students and learners as well as reporting the progress of the learners.
Hope this helps.
