A Learning Management System (LMS) is a system that allows the management of the process of online training. It enables the administrator to load training programs, assign them to users, track their activity, and create reports.
The functionalities of the LMS
The list of functionalities can be extensive, but the above definition presents the main possibilities of the LMS activity. If you want to learn more about the functionalities of LMS platforms, please read the descriptions of the platforms included in our offer (links 1 and 2).
Who is the LMS for?
Learning Management Systems are currently used by a very wide range of organizations from different sectors and industries. The larger the organization, the more benefits it receives from using the e-Learning platform. However, small businesses also find many advantages of using the LMS. Some examples of the most common users of LMS’s are:
- Business organizations of various sizes and industries, mainly medium and large companies, companies with employees in scattered branch offices, often hiring new employees requiring training, or frequently carrying out staff training (e.g. relating to procedures, skill development, etc.)
- Educational institutions (universities and schools)
- Administrative and governmental institutions
- Training companies (in particular to offer services to their clients and as an extension of business activities in the form of e-Learning courses)
The main benefits of using the e-Learning platform
The benefits that can be achieved with an e-Learning platform depend on many factors, namely:
- The specific details of your organization/company/institution – the bigger the number of users and the more training you have, the greater your potential benefit from using the system.
- Functionalities available on the platform and their suitability for your needs.
It is also important to use the available functionalities appropriately, according to their potential.
Other benefits of using the platform are the possibility to allocate access of appropriate users to appropriate training, and the ability to track activity and reports. Without a LMS, access to training is much more difficult, as is reporting, which makes the LMS a key element of e-Learning.
