What is an LMS solution?

A learning management system (LMS) is an application that may be hosted in the cloud or locally, for delivering, tracking and managing software training or software certifications. LMS systems range from managing training records to distributing courses over the Internet and offering features for online collaboration.
 
In many instances, a corporate training department would purchase or install an open-source LMS to automate record-keeping as well as the registration of employees or users for classroom and online courses:
 
  • Student self-service (e.g. self-registration on instructor-led training)
  • Training workflow (e.g. user notification, manager approval, wait-list management)
  • The provision of on-line learning (e.g. Computer-Based Training, read, understand & apply)
  • On-line assessment, management of continuous professional education (CPE)
  • Collaborative learning (e.g. application sharing, discussion threads)
  • Training resource management (e.g. instructors, facilities, equipment) are dimensions to Learning Management Systems

 

The characteristics of an LMS include:

  • Manage users, roles, courses, instructors, and facilities and generate reports
  • Course calendar
  • Learning Path
  • Student messaging and notifications
  • Assessment/testing capable of handling student pre- and post-testing
  • Display scores and transcripts
  • Grading of coursework and roster processing, including waitlisting
  • Web-based or blended course delivery
