It’s apparent that technology has its big impacts on education, as it plays an important role in this area. Technology assists us in doing research, collecting information, doing experiments and discovering the nature of many elements in our natural environment. Not only assists us in laboratories, but technology also helps us in delivering the best education to our young generation. Nowadays with technology implementing education is off the scale of classrooms as because of it many people in the world have more chances to approach their education by many ways. Thanks to the development of technology, education now is unlimited, it has already exceeded the scope of age, regions, and countries. One leading new technology solution that affects education development the most is the Online Learning Management System, or LMS. In this article we together let’s see more interesting facts of this amazing learning platform.
What is a Learning Management System?
A learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting, automation, and delivery of educational courses, training programs, materials or learning and development programs. The learning management system concept emerged directly from e-Learning. Learning management systems make up the largest segment of the learning system market. The first introduction of the LMS was in the late 1990s. Learning management systems have faced a massive growth in usage due to the emphasis on remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Learning management systems were designed to identify training and learning gaps, using analytical data and reporting. LMSs are focused on online learning delivery but support a range of uses, acting as a platform for online content, including courses, both asynchronous based and synchronous based. In the higher education space, an LMS may offer classroom management for instructor-led training or a flipped classroom. Modern LMSs include intelligent algorithms to make automated recommendations for courses based on a user's skill profile as well as extract metadata from learning materials to make such recommendations even more accurate.
Its target audience and its different types:
Anyone who needs to deliver training needs LMS. An LMS makes delivering your training more manageable and streamlined by reducing the time you spend on course creation, delivery, and reporting. There’s no shortage of organizations of all shapes, sizes, and industries that have use for an LMS.
The term learning management system is a broad tag attached to a lot of different tools. Under closer inspection, these tools have some major differentiators and serve very different users. For example, an LMS used by a university is a very different piece of software from one used by a software company. Let’s examine some key factors that determine the type of LMS you’ll need:
Corporate vs academic systems: Simply put, a business usually opts for a corporate LMS, while a school or university typically opts for a higher education or academic LMS. The main difference is the number of features and tools each offers. A corporate LMS is frequently updated and enhanced with new features, and offers functionality like white-labeling, as well as the option to integrate with other tools. Whereas an academic LMS won’t provide frequent feature updates and is unlikely to support integrations.
Cloud vs hosted systems: The choice here is whether to install an LMS on your organization’s hardware or to use a cloud-based service. This is becoming less and less prominent as most organizations have fully moved over to the cloud. With that said, some organizations go the route of an on-site installation to adhere to specific industry legislation or network requirements.
