A Learning Content Management Systems, or LCMS, is a software platform that uses a common user interface and templates so it is easy to write, design, organize, and store the learning content that will be delivered to a student even if you are not a programmer. In contrast to an LMS, an LCMS allows single courses to be modified for individual people. In short, an LCMS is an authoring tool that allows instructional designers to collaborate and create content that can be published in a variety of formats. While the LMS user is a learner, the LCMS user is the teacher.
PowerTrain uses, creates, and implements LCMSs by employing a knowledge object repository to simplify development and delivery of courses. Not only does an LCMS support online course development, it can also be used to develop blended courses using functions such as online forums, blogs, reading assignments, discussions, quizzes, course surveys, and other group activities and exercises. If you would like to write and design all of your learning content in-house, an LCMS might be for you.
PowerTrain uses, personalizes, and hosts a variety of LCMSs, including Drupal and our own custom-designed systems. We can also create your solution using off-the shelf programs such as Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate, Kenexa (previously OutStart), UDUTU, and others.
