Learning Management Suite (LMS)

These are tools for managing, creating, scheduling training or learning in your organization. The terminology varies from vendor to vendor. Learning management systems (LMS) typically help to manage both classroom and on-line learning. They do not normally include content creation or management tools but may in some cases. Some LMSs may manage just classroom or just e-learning rather than both. Some LMSs may also include content authoring and managment and virtual classrooms. Learning content management systems (LCMS) emphasize the management of content for courses/training/learning. In most cases, they include content authoring tools. In some cases, they may also include some of the features of LMSs. Content authoring tools are often provided as part of an LCMS. They may also be stand-alone products. Virtual classrooms (web conferencing tools) normally are separate third party offerings but may be included as part of a suite of tools. Suites of tools include features of at least two or more of the above categories. While some companies offer just LMS or LCMS systems others offer suites of products, which provide all or most of the features of the other tools. Suites combine several capabilities of learning management--usually two or more of the following: learning management, classroom training management, e-learning management, custom content creation, learning content management, learning object repositories, or virtual classrooms.

Connect the Dots: Simplifying the Online Ad Business


Over the past few years, the online advertising space has become crowded and very complex, and more technologically driven middle-men have acquired increasingly large shares of the overall online revenue. Traditional publishers have been at a disadvantage and struggling to regain control over their online ad business. In this white paper, we propose a solution that straddles the whole value chain through a suite of previously unconnected technologies. By connecting all these dots, publishers are empowered to effectively create and use behavioral data patterns of their visitors, and sell advertisement with exclusive access to different types of audiences--thus returning to a more profitable business model of advertising in media.
