How eLearning content complements an LMS

In the realm of business, the realm of learning and development comes with its own set of specialized terms and expressions. While these aid in effectively communicating concepts for those in the field, they can bewilder individuals lacking expertise, leading to misuse.

Two often interchanged terms, “e-learning” and “learning management system (LMS),” hold distinct meanings. This confusion arises due to some overlap and their increased usage in the internet era.

To distinguish the two, it’s crucial to note that an LMS focuses on managing learning processes, whereas e-learning pertains to the actual delivery of learning materials. Here are more detailed definitions:

– E-learning: knowledge acquisition using computers or similar tech

– Learning Management System: software for overseeing, tracking, and reporting learning programs

An LMS is one facet of e-learning and requires content to manage effectively. This is where e-learning content plays a vital role. Though an LMS can handle various learning formats, it shines in e-learning content management.

Discover how Wranx melds e-learning content with an LMS in our informative video. With e-learning’s structured digital format, learner progress is automatically monitored, and outcomes are often displayed in user-friendly dashboards. This data can be integrated into an LMS, aiding in precise tracking and monitoring, aligning with the system’s purpose.

Contrastingly, tracking classroom learning data is more complex, hindering effective monitoring. Enhanced learner performance tracking allows for refining learning strategies efficiently, fostering knowledgeable and proficient employees.
