Overview

About a Learning Content Management System

A Learning Content Management System (LCMS) is a centralized platform used to create, categorize, store, distribute, manage, and track educational content on the web. It allows experts, instructional designers, and other content professionals to author content as learning assets and reuse them to create online courses, exams, or lessons. 

On the other hand, LCMS software enables learners to access course materials, register for training, take multiple assessments, and different types of interactions.
Essentially, an LCMS brings together the entire learning content management lifecycle, eliminates duplicate efforts, and allows for rapid assembly of multi-format content. This helps organizations to boost their efficiency, optimize expenses, and increase the quality of learning materials.
And when an LCMS is combined with a
custom LMS, it is possible to get the best of the two worlds: leverage both content authoring and eLearning system administration.

Explainer

What LCMS Content Lifecycle Looks Like

  • Author. This component is responsible for rapid content assembly upon request. Educators can reuse learning objects rather than recreate them from scratch and assemble them as lessons, quizzes, or exams.
  • Publish. An LMCS relies on a standard XML language that makes it easy to update and release the learning materials in just a few clicks. Content authors can publish Microsoft Word, PDF, SCORM-compliant eLearning, HTML5, Microsoft PowerPoint files in just a few clicks.
  • Deliver. This part is responsible for the consistent delivery of specific learning content to target audiences.
  • Analyze. Modern LCMSs provide the metrics that help educators to analyze the learning object’s relevance and efficiency. With sophisticated eLearning analytics, organizations can continue to refine and improve their content in the long haul.

FAQ

Need Help? We’ve Got You Covered!

What is an LCMS?

A Learning Content Management System (LCMS) is a centralized platform that enables multiple users to create, store, manage, deliver, track, and analyze eLearning content. It serves instructional designers, trainers, coaches, and subject-matter experts who can author and organize content and evaluate its efficiency using a unified tool. So, instead of opting for outside platforms, organizations can assemble and deliver learning materials in one place.

What are the benefits of an LCMS?

Learning Content Management Systems provide content professionals an opportunity to leverage learning assets with ultimate efficiency. Instead of using a separate authoring tool, an LCMS allows quick content assembly using small learning chunks. This helps to avoid duplicate efforts of multi-format content creation and distribution. Also, by covering the whole lifecycle of content management in one place, the platform lets organizations boost their performance, reduce expenses, and improve the quality of eLearning content.

What is the difference between LMS, CMS, and LCMS?

The three abbreviations sound almost the same but have distinctive peculiarities. LMS’s main task is to deliver training, manage formal learning content obtained from outside authoring tools, and store students and courses. A CMS has similar features but doesn’t have the functionality to deliver SCORM-compliant courses to traditional or virtual classrooms. And finally, an LCMS is concerned with eLearning content creation and delivery within one centralized platform.

How much does custom LCMS development cost?

A Learning Content Management System with core functionality, responsive design, and adaptive learning elements will cost from $25.000 to $60.000. It is also necessary to factor in additional expenses to implement integrations, sophisticated security measures, and advanced search capabilities. We can estimate the approximate cost to develop and implement custom LCMS software considering your unique requirements.
