What is Learning Management System (LMS) Software?

Learning management system software is used by both employees as well as schools and educational institutes to automate and manage the administration, documentation, delivery, testing, tracking and reporting of training and learning. These online portals allow you to create and manage training materials and educational content, set curricula, deliver courses online, provide a space for discussion and collaboration, as well as to test and report on learning progress.

Educational institutes, agencies, training companies and businesses of all sizes can benefit from learning management systems software. Many organizations use these systems to create online courses that can be accessed from any device, whether that is a laptop, tablet or smartphone. Rich media can be uploaded and shared, including videos and images. These apps can also be used to sell courses online.

For employers and HR staff these tools can be used to administer training to new and existing staff members. Training content can be easily created and shared across numerous channels. Training sessions and events can be scheduled and course enrollment can be managed using these applications.

Content development and management is a key functionality of any LMS software. Your LMS can usually be integrated with other data systems to gather information and use this in the creation of content. Documents can be created based on pre-set templates which can be customized and branded to meet your organizations needs.

Educational institutes, training bodies and companies alike can use LMS software to set curricula based on specific goals, requirements, specialization and area of focus. Courses can be assigned and unassigned to employees or students based on predefined criteria. You can establish certification paths and ensure teachers and trainers follow guidelines and meet industry requirements. Progress can be tracked across each stage and reports can be used to show compliance with regulatory standards.

Learning management software can be used to test proficiency and to report on progress. You can automate the creation and administration of testing material based on your library of content. This can include ongoing assessments as well as current level/ placement tests.

Communication among teachers, trainers, students and staff can be improved using the collaboration and feedback features of LMS software. These might include discussion groups, forums, instant messaging, live chat, social media platforms, groups and communities. User profiles, status updates and live feeds can further foster communication among learners and trainers.

The analytics and reporting tools of LMS software can be used to give better insight into the effectiveness of your learning procedures and identify learner difficulties. Data can also be used to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your team. Real.time monitoring can help you track how much of your material is being consumed and when.

Who is the ranking for?

This ranking is for business owners and decision makers looking for a first glance at the leading cloud-based Learning Management System (LMS) software in the industry. The data serves as a point of reference highlighting the key factors that small businesses should look at when first analyzing a piece of software. These factors include user perception (reviews), compatibility (integrations and mobile app availability), market presence (media presence), and security features (security).

For more details on why we chose these data points, take a look at our industry research reports, which provide in-depth explanations of each data point, as well as trends in the industry.

How are the scores calculated?

An app’s score is calculated based on five unique data points and is completely independent of any relationships that GetApp has with app vendors. The data points are calculated as outlined below:

User Reviews

The score for user reviews is calculated using a Bayesian estimate, which is a weighted average that includes the number of reviews and the rating of an app, benchmarked against other apps in the category. This raw number is then scaled to represent a value between one and 20.

Integrations

Integration scores are calculated by scaling and adding two different averages for the number of listed integrations on GetApp: the first 15 points are awarded for the total number of integrations scaled against the average for the top 25 percent of apps in the category, while the final five points are awarded for the total number of integrations scaled against the leader in the category.

Mobile Platforms

Mobile platform scores are calculated using data from Google Play and the Apple App Store. Five points are awarded for having an Android App, and another five for an iOS app. The additional 10 points are calculated based on the user ratings of the app in each store, rated out of five, for a total of 20 points.

Media Presence

Media presence is calculated using the number of Twitter followers and Facebook fans a vendor has. Each social network contributes a maximum of 10 points to the total score. The first five points are awarded for total number of followers scaled against the average number of followers that each vendor in the category has, while the remaining five points are awarded based on the total number of followers, this time scaled against the category leaders. The scores for Facebook and Twitter are added together for a total score out of 20.

Security

Security is calculated using answers from a vendor-completed survey. The questions in the survey are based on the Cloud Security Alliance self-assessment form as part of the Security, Trust & Assurance Registry. With 15 questions, each answer is assigned a point value based on vendor response, with additional points given for security certifications, for a maximum possible score of 20.

In the event of a tie, each data point is weighted for importance, with security taking precedent, followed by reviews, integrations, mobile apps, and media presence, respectively.
