What is a learning management system (LMS)? A learning management system is software designed to create, administer, manage, host, track, and deliver educational courses, training materials, and learning and development programs. It is focused on formal learning such as compliance training, onboarding, product knowledge training, and so on.

LMSs host standardized content compliant with SCORM specifications. Returning to the learning experience platform vs LMS debate, we can safely say that the latter is more widespread since LXPs are still relatively new.
