- He should provide training to the administration team with LMS experts to increase the team efficiency and skills in LMS administration and to afford excellent LMS support for the users.
- Administration team should follow standardized procedures in assigning, maintaining and managing training activities in the LMS in order to give complete LMS support to the users.

With this better knowledge on the part of the administration, LMS users can be greatly benefited from the effective support that they will then receive.
- The administrator should give permission to the training administration only after official training on the LMS. In this way standards can be followed in creating and maintaining effective and efficient training through the LMS.
