Moving beyond conventional educational concepts, the learning space has evolved over the years. Paper-based coursewares have been replaced by tabloids, tutor-based learning has been replaced by software, and traditional publishing has been replaced by digitally-enabled publishing, fabricating a new-fangled e-learning landscape. Tools used to support e-learning covers a wide range of different applications. The question of organizing e-learning tools involves the problem of integration vs. separation.
One approach to e-learning that solves this tangle is Learning Management System (LMS). LMS is the engine and foundation of the entire e-learning program, marrying detail-focused traditional publishing with the analytical-based approach. A common idea behind LMS is that e-learning is organized and managed within an integrated system. Different tools are integrated in a single system which offers all necessary tools to run and manage an e-learning course. All learning activities and materials in a course are organized and managed by and within the system. However, there are some instances where the learning management and the learning content creation are both handled by the LMS. Many systems today have mechanisms in place where e-learning developers can create quizzes within the LMS rather than an outside tool; others still have actual content creators. All in all, the LMS market is a very crowded space, with novel offerings popping up every single day, each boasting a slew of features.
