Find out why an LMS is a great solution for creating and managing learning activities

An LMS (learning management system) provides all the essential tools schools need to support efficient teaching and learning.

Here are the main LMS benefits for schools and universities:

  • Boosts student engagement and achievement
  • Teachers save time in daily teaching activities
  • Track student progress easily at each learning stage
  • Enabling students to learn at their own pace
  • Reduces costs for classroom facilities and consumables

What’s an LMS?

A learning management system (LMS) is an "online education hub" that provides a large and indispensable set of features to support educational activities such as classroom learning, distance education and continuing education.

Here are the most important uses of an LMS:


Creating and delivering education content


Communication between students, faculty and parents


Tracking student achievement


Assessing students knowledge


Enhancing collaboration

In this tech-driven world, traditional teaching and learning can be easily interrupted or sometimes inefficient, which is why students need more interactive and captivating educational methods. Teachers also need an easy way to create content for their classes and organize their materials, data, and learner audiences.


Schools and universities that do online teaching and learning require tools to help them easily create and deliver their content to students. A learning platform is a great solution for this, but when you’re not familiar with the e-learning field, choosing an LMS can seem a bit intimidating.

Who is an LMS made for?

A school LMS is geared towards K-12, Higher Ed institutions, and other educational organizations. Typical users include teachers, students, administrators, other faculty members, and even parents.
