What is an LMS (Learning Management System)?

A learning management system (LMS) is used to book, deliver, monitor and measure online learning.

For some organisations, the administration time alone (managing bookings, confirming completion, and reporting on results) can make it worthwhile having their own learning management system.

Learners can be enrolled in an online course in a learning management system and can log on and work on it on a flexible basis (in the options we provide, at any time, on any computer with an internet connection).

Learning records for individuals are held securely and can be made available to selected people to view progress and offer support.

Reporting is one of the most powerful parts of a learning management system. An LMS collects evidence of course completion – useful for compliance purposes and for helping with staff development when you're providing training for your own people. If you're offering training to your clients, strong reporting allows you to track progress for a range of potential purposes, such as offering support while your clients learn and providing certification in your product on successful completion.
