What does LMS mean?
LMS stands for Learning Management System.
There are many hundreds of LMS companies selling all kinds of LMS systems. Some LMS examples include LMS for training consultants or training companies. There are LMS for companies that want to improve their staff performance. There are LMS for schools that offer hybrid learning or distance education elearning courses and degrees.
But at the end of the day, an LMS platform is just software and that LMS is just the tip of the iceberg. You know your online learning training courses require much more than just elearning LMS software to be successful.
If you offer employee or customer training or online distance learning courses as part of a traditional college, university, or K-12 education program, the learning experiences and quality depend on the LMS Services that support and enhance your LMS platform.
The Good News: Having an LMS doesn't have to be expensive. Let us show you how.

Fast and Easy to Implement
Your Learning Management System can be up and running in as little as 1-day and ready to use so you can start creating your learning content.
A Cloud-based Learning Management System
A Cloud-based or SaaS LMS requires no hardware or software purchases and no IT staff to manage it. This provides you with unlimited scalability so you are free to grow your employee training, online courses for K-12 and higher education, or online training for customers or association members.
Easily Track Learner Progress and Performance
This enables you to allocate online training resources, improve online training assets, and track patterns and trends among your staff, customers, and students to improve engagement and retention.
Regular System Updates
The online training and education world continues to change and at a faster rate. Your LMS vendor needs to ensure that your Learning Management System keeps up so your content and your online courses remain engaging and top quality.
Features to look for in Learning Management Systems
A Rich Set of eLearning Tools
Ensuring that the eLearning software in your LMS for schools or businesses includes all the latest tools, features, and robust capabilities that enable you to offer high-quality and engaging asynchronous learning and collaboration. Social Learning means you can mix in things like chats, communities, discussions, and live meetings. Gamification engages learners. Learning Paths enable you to develop custom talent management or learning experiences.
Live Web Meetings or Conferences
Two live platforms for when you want to take your synchronous learning to another level.
An LMS Library
This enables you to add all kinds of extra multimedia and engaging learning content to learning management systems.
Dedicated Admin Support
Your Client Service Consultant is your backup Admin. Their job from Monday to Friday is to provide you with Learning Management Support Services that help you run your eLearning program, train you on the LMS Administration software, and speak with you directly about your current and upcoming needs.
Free and Unlimited LMS Training
Modern Learning Management Systems can have 100 to 200 or more tools, features, and capabilities. Your staff is never going to learn all that in a full-day training program. Our free and unlimited training enables your LMS Administrators, instructors, and subject matter experts (SMEs) to acquire LMS best practices while easing into the learning platform at a comfortable pace while being fully supported by EdTek staff.
Ease of Use
An intuitive Learning Management System user interface (UI) so your administrators, instructors, SMEs, and course participants can focus their energy on learning and collaboration.
Tracking and Reporting Tools
Dashboards, canned reports, and custom reports that can be easily created, accessed or downloaded, or automatically distributed to management, administrators, instructors, and learners.
Custom Branding and Language Options
Learning Management Systems don't have to all look alike. You can white-label your LMS or add custom skins to cater to different groups of users. You can offer language options so learners around the world can navigate their training program in their preferred language.
Learning Management Systems must support HIPAA, AICC, and all the other standards that are expected with employee training and traditional education programs.
SCORM and Open API
Learning Management Systems must also be compliant with SCORM, Tin Can API, xAPI, LRS, and LTI to enable LMS integrations that allow critical data to go where it has to and so cutting-edge content and learning tools can enrich learning experiences.
Mobile Learning (mLearning)
Using a smartphone or tablet to access online training is not just a fad for tech geeks. All the leading Learning Management Systems are HTML5-compliant to support Mobile Learning at the office, on a job site, at a customer location, hanging out on campus, at home sick in bed, while in transit or where ever it's happening.
