The learning management system is a software application that makes it easier for instructors and students to track the progress of their courses. It was developed as an alternative in response to e-Learning's shortcomings, such as difficulty managing large amounts of data or lacklustre user experience due its simple functionality which did not address those issues adequately enough from years past at least one major update released between 2013 - 2014 where they added more features specifically tailored towards these problems.
What is an LMS?
A Learning management System is typically implemented as a web-based application used as a platform to connect learning resources and activities. It is usually a combination of a LMS, a curriculum management system (CMS) and learning analytics software. Learning management systems have proven to be very useful in helping to build and manage the overall student learning experience by providing data and information about the progression of the student through the program. They are most useful when used to manage large-scale online courses with courses and programs that may have hundreds of students or thousands of students enrolled. This is because they make it possible for the instructors to provide the student with the resources and activities at the right time in the right place using the web based software.
LMS applications are a useful tool when creating and delivering blended learning courses, by providing access to learning material in the classroom as well as being available in the cloud to make it easier for the students to access the material from home.
In addition, since they are web-based applications, they are also very convenient for the students to access since it is as if they were in class and the instructors can also provide additional help, if necessary, using the same software. In combination with instructional applications such as e-Assist and Blackboard Learn, an LMS is a powerful and comprehensive tool for creating and delivering blended learning courses and programs.
Efficient use of an LMS system includes the ability to deliver content and interact with students in a variety of ways including asynchronous (also known as non-synchronous or asynchronous) learning activities that are conducted through various media such as email, chat, discussion forums, wikis, blogs, live webinars, teleconferences, text, or audio, as well as synchronous (also known as synchronous or synchronous) learning activities that are conducted through a variety of media such as synchronous video chat, synchronous webinars, synchronous live instruction, and synchronous text chat.
