What is a Learning Management System?

What is a Learning Management System?

Learning Management Systems (LMS) are used to deliver and manage your company's learning programs. Learning Management Systems track, coordinate, quantify and otherwise manage all training, education and certification for a diverse array of learning and e-learning requirements. Whether your requirements are focused on continuing education, human capital development, e-learning or certification, Learning Management Systems ensure your company's educational goals are met and you realize your ROI targets.

Who is Learning Management for?

Learning Management Systems are designed to enable your organization to properly manage continued learning initiatives, thus allowing results to be measured and modifications to be made. Virtually any company will benefit from a LMS, whether you need to train tens or tens of thousands of learners. A properly designed LMS implementation will scale and grow with your organizations changing needs.

How do companies benefit from an LMS?

The benefits are numerous and vary based on your specific situation. Savings - both time and money, typically in the 50% range. Increased Consistency - meaning the quality of training is the same for everyone, all the time. Better reporting - managers see the exact status up to the minute, and reports can be automatically delivered via email. Better compliance - the superb recordkeeping provides necessary documentation, on demand, for managers to meet the ever-changing regulatory demands. Certification - many LMS' (such as ours) automatically track when the certifications are expiring, and notify the learner and manager in advance. When they are complete, the learner can print a certificate of completion.

Why Select your Cloud Based LMS?

This same research finds that 21% of enterprise-class LMS' are now externally hosted and 31% of mid-market systems are externally hosted. With today's increase in bandwidth and availability of "web-services," a hosted LMS makes more sense than ever.

How do Learning Management Systems help me with Employee Development?

LMS' enable excellent record keeping, which is paramount to any learning endeavor, as well as providing many automated features such as notifications, reminders and tracking compliance.

What types of learning can be managed by your LMS?

LMS-managed training is web based and can be delivered anywhere for any purpose: Blended Learning is the combinaltion of instructor led classroom training combined with e-learning. Completing the e-learning courses are often required before attending the classroom based training. Self Paced e-Learning (online training), Instructor Led Classroom Training and seminars, Virtual Classroom (live e-Learning over the web).

What is SCORM?

The Shareable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a technical specification that governs how online training (or “e-learning”) is created and delivered to learners. SCORM is similar in concept to the digital photographic standard known as .JPG. The essence of SCORM is that any content that conforms to the SCORM specifications will work with any SCORM conformant LMS. SCORM dictates the technical specifications for creating e-learning. SCORM allows you to create any type of learning content; however it doesn’t specify instructional design, pedagogical methods, visual appearance or anything else that affects the educational experience. SCORM version 1.2 is widely adopted and is the de facto industry standard. Our LMS supports both SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004.

Can an LMS be customized to fit my precise training needs?

Our LMS is built from the ground up to be an extremely flexible and extensible system. Because of this, most companies can use the Portal without any customization. When needed, we have experts work to closely with you to custom-tailor the Portal to meet your specific requirements.

What are the system requirements?

An internet connected computer, tablet or phone with a web browser is all that is typically required.
