An “LMS”, short for Learning Management System, is a an online platform that allows teachers to lead online classes and students to enroll in them. The online class generally has a main page where the teacher can post various things like assignments, reminders, notes from class, and other items. Some of the more common LMS out there are Moodle, Blackboard, Edmodo, and newcomer, Google Classroom.
Often, teachers have a hard time deciding which platform to use. In some instances, districts decide which LMS all the teachers will use, many times with a huge price tag attached to it. Below is a handy comparison of some of the available LMS that are used in Mendon-Upton that Dale and I started developing last year. Please email me with any questions or requests.
