Understanding LMS Capabilities
A Learning Management System (LMS) is software that automates the administrative tasks of training. Such tasks include registering users, tracking courses in a catalog, recording data, charting a user’s progress toward certification, and providing reports to managers. The LMS also serves as a platform to deliver eLearning to students. There are many Learning Management Systems on the market, and their prices and functionality vary greatly. The courses Left Brain Media develops work with any modern LMS. If you are exploring your options, the list of Learning Management Systems we compiled below will be especially helpful.
Choosing the right LMS can seem daunting. Sometimes off-the-shelf solutions are overkill and over budget to meet the business need. (Learn more in our article “Limitations of Off-the-Shelf LMS Software.”)
Left Brain Media can help you:
- Maximize the use of your existing Learning Management System;
- Choose the right off-the-shelf solution for your specific training needs; and even
- Create a custom solution that allows you to track and analyze learners’ progress at a fraction of the cost of off-the-shelf solutions.
Popular Learning Management Systems
The two systems on this list that Left Brain Media has the most experience with are the Ziiva Prosperity LMS and the Knowledge Anywhere LMS. Our experience is that both companies have great teams that can help you with your implementation.
