What is an LMS?

LMS stands for learning management system. It is a software application that you can use to create, manage, and track online employee training and educational programs. Being web-based, you can access online learning management software at any time and from anywhere using any device. They offer a one-stop solution covering both pre and post-training phases. People use learning management systems to train learners both locally and remotely.

Types of LMS

A learning management platform falls into different categories and the main ones are:
Cloud-based lms

A cloud LMS system is a web-based training and learning solution that is hosted in the cloud. Users can access them by simply logging into a web portal. There’s no need for downloading and installing software to avail its services.

On-premise lms

On-premise LMS software solutions are hosted locally on a company’s server. They are usually installed, deployed, and managed by an in-house IT team. They entail only a one upfront licensing fee, but tend to take more time to install.

Enterprise-grade lms

Enterprise-grade LMSs are designed to meet the needs of enterprise-wide training, including employee training, customer training, and partner training. They are equipped with all the necessary tools that ensure speed, efficiency, and security in training.

Individual lms

This class of online learning management systems suits the needs of individual trainers and tutors as well as small companies. Features on offer are limited to what individual users generally require. The subscription plans for such tools are also tailored based on the limited features.

Open source lms
Open source

An open source LMS is open to modification, update, improvement, and error fixing by developers. Developers can also use and distribute the software. Ease of customization and access to a community of experts define this type of LMS.

Proprietary lms

LMS software systems that come with an annual licensing fee and are characterized by closed source code are known as proprietary. Such software solutions are developed and maintained solely by the provider. Tech support and integrations come at extra costs.
