A Learning Management System, or LMS, is a huge market and the platforms vary greatly. Some focus on assessment while others focus on video content.
If you are a large organisation, customisation and branding might be a big factor as well as payment systems for charging students on either a once-off or ongoing basis.
These are all important factors to consider.
An LMS is a bit of software, plugin or app. They help students or customers plan or learn specifc things. This might be specifically for a student at a school or a business coach teaching business executives.
How do I choose?
A good place to start is to scope out your competitors. What works well for them? Is the process smooth? What features do they use?
What if none of your competitors are using an LMS? Well sit down, grab a cup of your favourite drink and start to jot down how you’d like the customer experience to go. Now do the same for yourself. How do you need to load content? Is it a quiz or video or text? What features do you need?
