Acorn Experts seek to educate the market on understanding and comparing Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS)

Online PR News – 28-April-2021 – Canberra – Continuing their work to educate the market, the Acorn internal subject matter experts have crafted a guide on understanding and comparing Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS). It is critical to note that an LCMS is different to a Learning Management System (LMS). It boils down to an LCMS being for content creators and an LMS being used to host learning activities. The full article is available now on their Acorn Labs blog: https://bit.ly/32R97dq

Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director) said, “if the LMS is the foundation for online learning, the LCMS is a building block.”

“An LCMS is a useful tool for instructors to create and deliver content in industry standards such as SCORM. It’s even more useful if you have an LMS–LCMS integration to seamlessly pull that content into your LMS, and quickly modify it or create new versions.”

Acorn’s article is giving the industry a detailed comparison between an LCMS and an LMS to ensure anyone looking to utilise one can understand what they do and what they need. While an LCMS is often a separate entity focused on creating and designing learning materials; they can sometimes also be a part of an LMS system.

When it boils down to the decision on which LCMS to go with, there are some key features to compare and consider. These include responsive design, efficient workflows, localisation options, integrations and analytics. Acorn’s article provides detailed information on how to evaluate these features.

In addition to being a useful information resource, the article also provides a handy checklist where potential users can simply tick the boxes to get a clear picture of which software stacks up best.
