Online trainers have a ton of things to keep track of, between developing and delivering course materials, managing enrollment, and tracking progress reports, completion rates, and test scores. The list goes on and on. That’s where Learning Management Systems come in.
A Learning Management System (or LMS, as they’re often called) allows trainers to use software to help distribute and manage huge amounts of learning material to pupils in a classroom, office, or just about anywhere. And with many cloud-based LMS programs, modifying courses and scaling them up or down is fast and easy.
Whether hosted on a company’s internal server or in the cloud, Learning Management Systems allow trainers to rapidly reach and monitor pupils in a way that’s never before been possible. And with the potential for integration with pupils’ other networks — from online calendars to colleague groups on social media sites — along with other advances in user-oriented Web applications, LMS continues to grow and evolve.
