e-Learning management software systems refers to any application that enables delivering courses and instruction electronically either over the internet or via download of software on individual desktops using CD’s or DVD’s. Essentially, any learning that is not delivered in the classroom but via electronic media can be categorized as e-learning software.
There are many categories of software available in the market that fall in the category of e-learning software. These range from course authoring tools that allow instructional designers to create e-learning courses to learning management systems that allow users to access e-learning courses over the internet.
Often any discussions on authoring tools revolves around developing an interactive learning module to teach a specific concept. Multimedia authoring tools can generally import different media types as well as add interactive programmed elements, which helps organize the content to engage the learner. After the content is “authored”, it can be exported in SCORM format. Once the multimedia e-learning content is created as a SCORM compliant package, it can be uploaded to a learning management system(LMS) like Litmos.com.
