While OpenSesame is not an LMS, we do provide quality content for use in Learning Management Systems and other learning platforms.
A Learning Management System, commonly known as an LMS, is a software program used to—among other things—organize, administer, deliver, track, and report on elearning content, learner activity, and training plans. Some include social features for learners, and some support the use of company-made elearning files.
There are hundreds of different LMS platforms, and the features offered by each will vary. The American Society of Training and Development (ATD) offers this general definition in their Field Guide:
While there are several definitions of a learning management system (LMS), the basic description is a software application that automates the administration, tracking, and reporting of training events. However, it’s not that simple. A robust LMS should be able to do the following:
- Centralize and automate administration
- Use self-service and self-guided services
- Assemble and deliver learning content rapidly
- Consolidate training initiatives on a scalable web-based platform
- Support portability and standards
- Personalize content and enable knowledge reuse.
More important, an LMS should integrate with other enterprise application solutions, [...] enabling management to measure the impact, effectiveness, and overall cost of training initiatives.
