Learning Management Systems
A learning management system (LMS) is a software application that automates the administration, tracking, and reporting of training events. LMSs can cater to different educational, administrative, and deployment needs or requirements. While an LMS for corporate learning, for example, may share many characteristics with a LMS, or virtual learning environment, used by educational institutions, they each meet unique needs.
The virtual learning environment used by universities and colleges allow instructors to manage their courses and exchange information with students for a course that in most cases will last several weeks and will meet several times during those weeks. In the corporate setting a course may be much shorter, completed in a single instructor-led or online session.
An LMS does the following:
- Centralize and automate administration
- Allow user self-registration
- Collect payment for courses (e-commerce)
- Use self-service and self-guided content
- 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

SCORM Conformant Content
Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based e-learning. It defines communications between client side content and a host system called the run-time environment (commonly a function of a learning management system). SCORM also defines how content may be packaged into a transferable ZIP file.
SCORM is a specification of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative, which comes out of the Office of the United States Secretary of Defense.
SCORM 2004 introduces a complex idea called sequencing, which is a set of rules that specifies the order in which a learner may experience content objects. In simple terms, they constrain a learner to a fixed set of paths through the training material, permit the learner to “bookmark” their progress when taking breaks, and assure the acceptability of test scores achieved by the learner.
