A Learning Management System (LMS) is an online training workflow automation platform responsible for the storage, delivery, tracking, assessing, and certification process of training activities.
The LMS records all interactions between learners and the training content in the form of data, which it processes into meaningful information used by administrators to assess the training outcome.
As a result, the LMS generates reports outlining the strengths, weaknesses, areas of improvement, and the progress of learners, which is presented to the administrators (generally the HR and L&D teams) as a bird’s eye view of the entire training activity.
As learners complete courses, the learning management system presents them with certificates of completion.
The certificates are further programmed to expire on a yearly or biannual basis, based on the pre-determined validity period to trigger the re-training or re-certification workflow.
