LMS & LCMS

An LMS …

An LMS is a system designed to automate the
administration of training

events.

LMS functionality
includes user registration, tracking courses in a catalog,
and recording data from learners; it also has
reporting

features for analysis purposes.

An LMS is
typically designed to handle courses by multiple
publishers and providers. It usually doesn’t include

its
own authoring capabilities; instead, it focuses on
managing courses created by a variety of other
sources.

An LCMS …

An LCMS is a system used primarily for development,
maintenance, tagging, and storage of instructional
content. During development, it is used to import and
store assets that will be used to create a learning object;
and create and store content objects. The LCMS may
have workflow process functionality and the ability to tag
assets and content objects with

metadata. If set up to
work with dynamic delivery, an LCMS will assemble

the
proper assets on
-
the
-
fly to create a learning object. While
many LCMS can deliver content, they usually do not
have the administrative

functionality of an LMS. Many
LCMS can export content in a variety of

different formats.
