What is a LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM?by Digital Teacher Smart Classroom Service provider
Before you get panicky about the jargon, let us look at the meaning of a learning management system. A learning management system is a software application used to monitor, administrate, document, report and track educational courses.
- An LMS can be really helpful in the current scenario due to the lockdown of schools and it will enable unfaltering delivery of lessons to students.
- The purpose of an LMS is to empower Learning and Development (L&D) departments with training and development for their learners. You could think of a learning management system as a vast archive where you can track and store information.
- Anyone with a login and password can access these online training resources whenever and wherever.
- You could deploy a learning management system (LMS) via cloud, get it from a self hosted platform, desktop application or a mobile application.
- One of the biggest perks of having an LMS is that it can store a large amount of data and it tracks learners/students performance and monitors progress.
- Here is where Digital Teacher comes in handy. Digital Teacher presents a Unit Plan to the teachers which can either be adopted as it is or customized as per their needs in the planning stage of the instruction delivery.
- A template of the Lesson Plan is provided to break the instructions of a unit at class-to-class level along the lines of the unit plan.
- The pace of instruction delivery is placed in the hands of the teacher through the “Overview” section of the product, which gives a bird’s eye view of the subject matter of a particular unit.
- A typical unit is divided into Introduction, Instruction and Evaluation sections on the lines of standard teaching-learning process.
- The content under the Introduction section is divided into three sections, which helps the teacher to recall the previous content covered, maintaining continuity of the subject.
- Over 15 lakh schools are shut down in India and the students have been at home without any physical for more than 6 months now and a learning management system comes very much in handy for both student and the teacher in this scenario for learning at home.
