What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?
The ideal learning management system allows a training organisation to deliver educational courses effectively, giving students and trainers access to classes, learning materials, assessments, progress, certificates and more. Though it has similar features to a student management system, its scope is limited to the learning process and doesn’t usually include features such as compliance reporting or automation.
The essentials for your Learning Management System
A learning management system is an online portal for classrooms, with features for trainers and students to view assignments, grades, and access learning materials. LMSs are ideal for training organisations offering short e-learning courses, or microcredentials, with some even able to deliver entire courses.
Student management is complicated, requiring a comprehensive system to cover everything. Beyond capturing the critical contact data you need, in the form of a CRM, your LMS should enhance the student experience and support the learning journey, from prospect to graduate. We've listed the critical features of an LMS below, which you can use to determine whether an LMS is worth investing in.
