Learning Management Systems (LMS)
A Learning Management System (or LMS) is like a website version of your courses. It is where you will retrieve and submit assignments, view the course content, participate in group discussions, take tests and exams, and receive other information from your instructors and peers. In addition to an LMS, you might have other software or hardware requirements for your course or program.
