GEM’s training solutions are provided to businesses, governments and institutions.

What is e-learning?

E-learning refers to the use of electronic media and information and communication technologies in education. E-learning includes numerous types of media that deliver text, audio, images, animation, and streaming video. It can be self-paced learning or may be instructor-led training.

What is an LMS?

A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of e-learning education courses or training programs.

Learning Management Systems range from simple training/educational records management software to complex online course applications with features for online collaboration. Corporate training departments use LMS’s to deliver online training, as well as automate record-keeping and employee registration.

What role does the LMS play in elearning?

An LMS is a one-stop-shop for all your training needs. It enables access to training catalogs, external resources and downloadable learner reports. Further, employee growth programs, career planning, wish-lists for courses as well as other features can be incorporated into an LMS. This allows the HR/OD staff to have clear training and development milestones.

While computer-based training courses can be delivered to staff without an LMS, it isn’t possible to track learner program, completion status or performance.
