What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?
Often called an LMS for short, a Learning Management System is a platform that provides the framework to handle all aspects of the learning process – administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of training programs.
An LMS specifically manages training and educational records, distributing online or blended online courses over the Internet with features for online collaboration. You name it, and an LMS can do it.
Why a Learning management System (LMS)?
A study conducted by Ken Research states that due to the growing demand for online courses, the adoption of Learning Management Systems (LMSs) by companies across various sectors in South Africa will increase drastically. It has been anticipated that the share of LMS will reach over 55.0% by the year 2023.
Going digital is the only way you can meet the demands of the modern learner, who wants fast, personalised, bite-sized information, wherever they are.

If you’re still wondering what a Learning Management System is and why you should have one, let’s discuss the benefits.
Administration: Easily manage and administer the learning function including classroom, enrollments, course catalog, instructors and more.
Facilitate learning: Facilitate, manage, and build all e-Learning programs and courses.
Company wide solution: An LMS can be used throughout the entire company, rather than only for the learning/training department.
24/7 Access: Most LMSs are Web or cloud-based applications that allow access to e-Learning and training courses anywhere, anytime.
Consistency of training: Training and course delivery via an LMS is consistent since it is centralised. It delivers a consistent training and learning quality to all employees by supplying a single source for content, course materials and instructions.
Tracking and reporting: LMSs allow the company to easily generate training reports on an overall or user/student level basis. By utilising an LMS for e-Learning courses and/or online training, trainers can easily track goal progress, knowledge gains, ROI and more.
Meet regulatory compliance: Many industries may be required to train, assess and report for compliance purposes. Just a few of these industries are oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, communications, and building and construction. An LMS can help you satisfy these legal and regulatory requirements.
Cost savings: Training and teaching via an LMS reduces employee travel, optimises training expenditure and usage, and minimises facilities and instructors to pay. From the cost savings aspect, an LMS is a no-brainer.
Generally, Learning Management Systems have many more capabilities than these listed. However, these are the most popular selling points and the top identifiers to whether or not you and your organisation can benefit from an LMS.
