Are you new to Learning and Development, or coming from a world of training and starting to consider the need to deliver and track training online for the first time? Whether you are new to eLearning or just new to tracking the data from learning, the mysterious and often awkward world of the Learning Management System (LMS) can seem daunting and impossible to navigate.

Join Adobe Evangelist, Allen Partridge for this gentle introduction to Learning Management concepts and uses. Allen will give you a simple but comprehensive guide to Learning Management. He will explain the purpose of the technology and provide you with some basic guidelines to help you know what to expect as you start working to better understand how to get more information about the skills people in your organization are mastering.

  • What is an LMS?

  • What kinds of learning can I track with an LMS?
  • What about moving from an old LMS to a new one?
