The Learning Management System (LMS) is an integral part of training design and development in medium to large scale organizations. Over the years, the LMS has evolved from a cumbersome platform to an easy-to-use modern solution.
To define an LMS in a nutshell, it is a software that facilitates the management, delivery, and tracking of an organization’s online training programs. Not only is it effective for eLearning, it is also used to schedule and manage classroom training. Location is no longer a constraint for learning as new-age LMSs allow anytime, anywhere access through smartphones.
