Types of LMS licenses

There are multiple types of LMS licenses, including:

Registration model - Calculates usage based on various user metrics including: how many users log into the LMS, how many sign up for a specific course, how many users purchase content or earn a certification. Overall, this is a good model when starting an LMS journey, but it can become expensive as the organization scales its learning programs.

Active User (Usage) - Defines learners through certain criteria such as: when their accounts are created, when they log into the LMS, or when they interact with the prescribed learning content. Compared to the sign-in model, the active user model only requires LMS buyers to pay for the first interaction, no matter how many times a specific user logs into the system.

Product-based: allows the sale of learning content or curricula within the LMS.

Revenue ratio - A registration model tailored for content sales, usually expressed in terms of the revenue percentage awarded to the lms system vendor. Unlimited: generally does not count users or usage. However, while some platforms will not charge user fees, others will offer an "unlimited" enterprise price once the buyer exceeds the user or income limit. s the percentage of revenue awarded to the LMS vendor.


An LMS drives results

The benefits and advantages that an LMS can bring to a business are not just theoretical - multiple studies have shown that an LMS can drive results. Research from the Brandon Hall group shows that 54% of companies that have invested in technology for learning have seen improvements in their productivity and motivation. 91% of these companies have also reported a stronger link between learning and business performance. The future of technology for learning

One of the most daunting realities companies face is the growing gap in knowledge as Baby Boomers retire and Millennials enter the workforce. Students need to constantly evolve as audiences change and new technology is introduced.

Similarly, online learning trends are heading in exciting directions as new technologies continue to be introduced. Learning technology is important to support your future learning needs. Some of these interesting trends include: e the buyer exceeds a user or revenue threshold assigned to the LMS seller.

Learning Content Management System (LCMS) vs. Learning Management System (LMS)

A Learning Content Management System (LCMS) is software that helps developers and administrators create and manage e-Learning content. These systems are different from an LMS in that they do not provide the features that learning managers need to deliver that content and track the performance of their students.

While there is some transition between an LCMS and an LMS, as both allow users to host and deliver digital learning activities (and both are SCORM compliant), the key difference is where they specialize, including:

Types of Learning : An LCMS specializes in digital learning content, while an LMS allows users to manage learning experiences, including traditional forms of learning and training (scheduling, in-person workshops, facilitating student conversations through social learning forums, etc.).

An LMS like Docebo allows learning managers to combine the best of both worlds, bringing together learning content and experiences to establish blended learning plans for their students.

Specifying LMS Media Types

SCORM (1.2 / 2004): The SCORM standard helps e-learning authoring content and tools communicate with your learning management system. SCORM allows tools within the LMS to format the e-learning content in a way that can be shared across the platform.

Tin Can / xAPI: The xAPI API (formerly Tin Can API) is an E-learning software specification. This type of software allows learning content and learning systems to communicate with each other, recording all kinds of learning experiences, which are then recorded in a Learning Disc Store (LRS). An LRS can exist within traditional LMS or alone. Docebo supports the Tin Can 1.0 standard. AICC:

The Aviation Industry Based Computer Training Committee (AICC) was formed in 1988 to ensure that training material could be developed, delivered and evaluated through the growing number of computer-based training platforms at that time. Soon after, these universal specifications reached beyond the aeronautical community and into the world of corporate training, becoming the world's first e-learning standard. It was dissolved in 2014 due to declining membership numbers. However, before it was disbanded, the AICC worked to make the content compliant with CMI-5 (Computer Managed Instruction), its successor, which conforms to xAPI.
