What is LMS?

LMS is short for Learning Management System.

It is a management system used to deliver educational courses and/or training programs to your customer base. It is a software program that can help you easily organize the courses you plan to deliver by helping in creation, change, assigning, grading, etc.

For example, MS Office Word helps you write various documents, Gmail helps you receive, send and manage your emails, Adobe Illustrator helps you design and deliver various kinds of elements. In a similar manner, LMS is a software prog

ram that not only helps you create but also manage and deliver eLearning courses. Usually an LMS website (anchor text) is how an LMS system will help you achieve all this. We will explain this further.

A Learning Management System is like an engine. It powers eLearning. In its most common form, it consists to two separate parts - two elements:

The first is a simple server component. This is where all the core functions are performed. This includes creation of courses, their management, and even their delivery. It also includes some not-so-obvious uses like authentication of users, data serving and managing notifications, among other things.

The second element is slightly more complication. It is a user interface. This is usually what is known as an eLearning website. It is not much different from a regular website like Gmail, Facebook or Amazon. This is the slightly more visible part as this is the way to interact with the Learning Management System and is often even called the Learning Management System website. This is used by students, teachers, instructors, and admins.

Who uses an online LMS website?

Anyone anywhere can use a Learning Management System once it goes online depending upon the settings. A variety of users access it for a variety of reasons/courses. Anybody who is interest in eLearning can access and use an LMS website to their advantage. This is not only relevant to educational institutes but is used by a variety of users from all walks of life. To provide you a non-exhaustive list of some sample users, please refer to the text included below:

  • All sorts of businesses of all sizes – from small to medium to large multinationals – everyone at some point of another has a use for an eLearning website.
  • Organizations. Whether it is something as large as the United Nations or even something as small as your local co-operative – everyone has a need for an eLearning website. NGOs use it, non-profits use, profit-oriented organizations use it.
  • Big government agencies and even local governments have a variety of uses for an online learning management system.
