Social LMS within your Institution
LMS stands for Learning Management System. A social LMS is a solution that integrates eLearning and collaboration tools into the traditional LMS functionality to provide a complete online learning and training environment. Academic Institutions can apply this advanced LMS technology to collaborate and enhance communication among students and faculty. Integrating Social Media in the LMS provides a new way of communication which makes it easier to collaborate and share text documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Social LMS allows users to view and edit Documents online so no longer need for multiple versions of documents.
