Learning Management Systems for Health and Social Care v1


What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?

Learning Management Systems (LMS) is the software platform that many Health and Social Care organisations use as a powerful instrument within their Learning and Development toolkit. These Health and Social care organisations use their LMS to develop, deliver and track e-Learning across small or large teams, whether their care organisation is an independent business or has numerous branches within a franchise.

Learning Management Systems have been used across many sectors in Health and Social Care for the additional benefits and value they deliver in automating processes and saving administration time. With the expansion and growth of smart phones, tablets and laptops users are now able to complete their learning in their own time and at their own pace. A Health and Social Care organisation now has the opportunity to utilise an LMS as a cross-functional platform for successful completion of e-Learning, tracking rotas and training, issuing policies and procedures.
