Learning Management System (LMS)
Modern training needs to be easy-to-use and accessible. A learning management system (LMS) allows you to create, distribute, and track training anywhere, on any device.
Over the past 20 years, powerful software has emerged for managing curriculum, training materials, and evaluation tools. The modern LMS allows users to create, track, manage, and distribute learning materials of any kind. Nearly a $10 billion industry, LMS software empowers organizations to develop online coursework, deliver it with unprecedented reach and flexibility, and manage its continued use over time.
The LMS has become a powerful tool for consulting companies that specialize in staffing and training, extension schools, and any corporation looking to improve the continuing education of its workforce. In the early days, the LMS was commonly used by educational institutions to deliver coursework as online classes grew in popularity. In recent years, companies of all sizes are using learning management systems to deliver training to internal employees, customers, and other business partners. The technology has become a powerful tool for organizations of all kinds looking to impart knowledge on their workforce and other stakeholders. Once a technology limited to educational institutions, today LMSs have multiple use cases in nearly every industry.
