If you are a student of an online training course, or E-Learning course, you are likely to be quite familiar with the learning management system. It is the main part of the site you log in to when you commence your training, and the part where you can keep track of your progress, access your course materials and submit any tests or assignments which are part of the course.
The learning management system or LMS is the integral part of the course provision, allowing the student to keep track of their course progress and see which modules have been completed, which test scores have been given back and your overall progress rate through the course. It also gives a central point for the course manager to submit further materials and perform Q&A sessions with course participants.
There is often the chance to interact with other students who are partaking in the course alongside you, with chat facilities and email agents to communicate with each using.
