Sometimes, the best way to move forward it to go back to basics. This is why we’re tackling the most foundational question there is when it comes to eLearning; what is a learning management system and how can it help drive your business?

A learning management system (LMS) is a software-based platform that facilitates the management, delivery, and measurement of an organization’s corporate eLearning programs.
