Elearning is a powerful way to train and inculcate company values for traditional students as well as corporate employees. The foundation of an elearning program, however, is the appropriate learning management system.
Also known as LMS, these software applications manage and administer instructional content. This includes course authoring and administration, student registration, tracking and reporting, and adapting content for each test taker along the way.
If you’re looking to start or expand your elearning program, in English and other languages, here are some of the most popular learning management systems we love to work with:
Edmodo is used by more than 78 million people in K-12 schools. The system emphasizes making connections among students, parents and teachers. One feature we like is that it integrates with Google Apps and Microsoft Office.
Edmodo is available in British and American English, Indonesian, German, Spanish, French, Croatian, Italian, Lithuanian, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Turkish, Greek, Serbian, Japanese and Simplified Chinese.
Moodle is an open-source learning management system that is used by more than 100 million people around the world. Organizations like schools, universities and corporations run it to deliver online courses and blending learning. It’s free; administrators just need to download and install Moodle on their own server. There are also many plugins available if you want to add extra features.
Moodle is available in over 100 languages, including different language varieties such as US English, Australian English (which is the default), International Spanish, Colombian Spanish, Venezuelan Spanish, Mexican Spanish and Mexican Spanish for Kids.
WizIQ is used by more than 300,000 people to receive training and tutoring, and attend webinars, through universities, corporations and tutoring companies. One of the features we like is that teachers can easily record their lectures.
WizIQ is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Thai, Chinese, Russian, Arabic, Czech, Dutch, Farsi (Persian), French, German, Greek, Italian, Korean, Malay, Polish, Swedish, Turkish and Vietnamese.
