Do You Need A LMS Software?

LMS(Learning Management Software) is a software application or a web based solution backed up by a robust database. Its primary function is to plan, create, implement, track and assess learning related to a specific domain of education.

 

The instructors have all the possible tools required by him via this application to make complete courses, tests, enrol students, monitor their participation and review the performance, provide feedbacks and finally to certify him/her for a course done/completed. SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a very popular industry standard specification created for standardizing the LMS processes.

It has two distinct parts:

  • A Server to perform main functions of the application (like creation of courses, syllabus, their management and delivery modes, verifying users, show appropriate courses, notifications, certifications etc.), and

  • A User Interface which runs in a browser, normally, used by administrators, mentors/instructors and students.

LMS software can be used from Enterprises to SMEs for Employee Orientation, Employee Training, Acquire Knowledge Base, and Education. With an LMS, the company can cut down costs involved in upgrading your employee’s knowledge and avoid business disruptions (when they take breaks for traditional courses). It requires less effort, money and time for a company when it uses LMS, instead of conventional seminars by instructors. LMS also provides complete overview of the employee’s performance, his understanding, and reports to the company.
