What is a Learning Management System?

Jul 26, 2012, 12:19am

A Learning Management System is a tool that is used to track student progress, monitor results, manage access, and run reports. Most importantly, an LMS allows training managers or instructors to view each student’s progress through the training course, view test results, set recurrence due dates, and document student’s training for recordkeeping purposes. Learning Management systems can be off-the-shelf products or customized for specific purposes. One such specific LMS was customized to provide three levels of administration. In the first tier, the student is allowed to view only his or her individual progress and test results. The second tier allows an instructor or training manager to monitor the students in his or her group. In the third tier, a master administrator has the capability to monitor all students in all groups. This form of LMS has proven to be beneficial and successful in both industry and education.
