What's a Learning Management System?
AnswerA Learning Management System is simply a tool that helps you to learn. It houses your course materials, and all the information you'll need to learn online.
A Learning Management System should do three things:
- Give you access to learning materials
- Present the materials in an engaging way, and
- Get out of your way, and let you learn.
Online forums are found in most Learning Management Systems. For an example of how to use this learning tool, see the blog post How to post on forums: The 5 golden rules at ElearningTrainer.
