MoWhat Is An LMS Exactly?
Maybe you find it hard to believe, but today many experts agree to consider the LMS solutions as life and education-changing methods. Moreover, these solutions may be a revolution that thoroughly changes education’s ecosystems. So, what is this revolution all about? And how this happened?
To answer these questions, we talk about two reasons: a technical and IT-related reason, and then, we dig into some social happenings which affected our whole life: the pandemic. But, of course, changes in human lifestyles should be addressed. So. Let’s start.
In recent years and through the penetration of technology into people’s lives, learning systems started to experience a colossal change in parallel with many other changes. This switch was a transition from traditional learning methods to eLearning systems.
In parallel with adapting to new learning methods, the pandemic came, and the necessity of online courses became increasingly crucial. Through the early days of the pandemic, physical distancing had affected many learning processes. This distancing was like a challenge for the training systems based on face-to-face education and interaction. However, when the pandemic lasted for several months, it became an unavoidable problem that required immediate action. Hence, many tools were created to help educators simplify the learning process, and afterward, everyone started seeking a solution.
To handle the situation, several approaches appeared, and what could be a better approach than a system that can facilitate and manage to conduct the learning channels? A solution that helps educators reach their audience better and more efficiently.
This is where we are faced with Learning Management Systems (LMS). But how does LMS help deal with this challenging task?
How LMS Works?
By benefiting from modern technology and based on what teachers, educators, and trainers need for their digital assets, LMSs exist to systematically manage the eLearning process and give the people in charge whatever they may need. In addition, they are there to facilitate the process and act like an eLearning Platform.
As the popularity of online learning increased, higher education systems such as colleges or universities were more enthusiastic about implementing modern learning systems in their learning methods.
Discovering how the LMSs could help educational institutes, schools, and even companies to continue their training process, there are different types of LMS:
- Video-Based Learning.
- One-on-One Online Learning.
- Online Group Learning.
- Proposal/Bidding Based Online Learning.
- Massive Open Online Courses.
Several kinds of LMSs were born, differentiated from each other regarding the features they provide. The key factors could be as follows:
- Software features and innovation
- Customer Experience
- Types of provided course materials
- Customer support
Considering these factors, open edX® is listed among the best existing LMSs. So, at this step, it seems necessary to go further and learn more about this LMS.
The open edX® website describes it as follows: “The Open edX® platform provides the learner-centric, massively scalable learning technology behind it. Originally envisioned for MOOCs, the Open edX® platform has evolved into one of the leading learning solutions catering to Higher Ed, enterprise, and government organizations”.
Due to what the Open edX® platform offers, we, as “Notion Wave” Company consisting of a group of educators and technical experts who have been providing various data and content-centered media since 1989, decided to build a structure of eLearning platform based on the Open edX but with more features which could satisfy what the education society may require.
