learning management system (LMS)
A learning management system, LMS, is a learning platform. It is a software program for computer-based or web-based learning, Computer Based Training( CBT) and Web Based Training(WBT).
The learning platform is a graphical user interface that supports certain functionalities such as the management and administration of the learning content and exercises, which can be accessed via the Internet. This includes the outline and tests of the learning content, as well as the communication control between the computer with the learning program and the learner.
Learning Management Systems use common file formats and course structures such as the Sharable Content Object Reference Model( SCORM) or IBM's Information Management System( IMS) and well-known web protocols, and can work together on the LMS platform from different locations.
