Education and Learning are inevitable in this era where the need for knowledge and skills is acknowledged by the world. The only thing that has changed is how we go about it. A teacher can teach in a classroom full of students, but now they can also do so through online learning. As the technologies for e-learning continue to evolve, there will be more options for learners, teachers, and institutions to use. One such is the ‘Learning Management System’. If you have ever taken an online course or attended online classes during the pandemic lockdown, most likely you already have exposure to LMS. So, let’s get into the details of an LMS without further ado.
A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application that manages the process of delivering education to students, employees including aspects of assessment, reporting, progress tracking, etc. LMSs are typically used by enterprises and universities. Training new employees, providing education opportunities to all staff, or creating academic training programs for students is very easy when you have a powerful LMS by your side.
At Algorhythms, we trust Moodle, an integrated, virtual LMS platform that meets the needs for education, training, content sharing, and lots more. To learn more about Moodle– Learning Management System Software.
Types of Learning Management System
Learning Management Software (LMS) can be classified into two types: Open Source and Closed Source.
Open-Source LMSs are free to use and have a large community of developers working on them. They are user-friendly and have no restrictions on who can use them or how they can be used.
A popular open-source LMS platform is Moodle. It is supported and maintained by a large user community. There is widespread use of the platform among businesses ranging from mid-size secondary schools to big private enterprises.
Closed-Source LMSs are not free to use but offer many features that open-source LMSs do not have. Closed-source LMSs often come with a fee, but they generally provide a lot more customization options than open-source LMS.
