Learning Management System (LMS) General Overview

What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?

A learning management system (LMS) is an eLearning platform for the administration, tracking, reporting, and delivery of compliance, educational, training, learning, or development programs and courses. 

It’s an exceptional way to deliver and manage valuable content to your people. Any range of topics and uses are available. View the course list, ask us for other topics, and even add your own courses and/or videos to the platform. The possibilities are literally endless.

Of course we don’t just give you a LMS. We do most of the heavy lifting like manage licenses, maintain the platform, build course track libraries, import your custom videos and courses. Best of all, we integrate your data and streamline administration so your managers can get the most out of the system as quickly as possible.
