Are you looking for a new Learning Management System? Would you be interested in a LMSs comparison checklist? At the following article you will find a list of 99 LMS features that you can use to compare LMS Vendors.

Learning Management Systems Comparison: The Ultimate Checklist of Features

At the eLearning Industry we see an increasing number of LMS vendors that continuously strengthen and improve their LMS solutions. However, with some many LMS providers and 1000+ of LMS solutions at the global eLearning market it is really hard to find the Best LMS solution that fits your specific requirements.

What are the most important features in a Learning Management System?

Important LMS features depends on your specific requirements. For example, a LMS solution that is successful for a University it does not mean that it will be successful for a large organization. This is why I listed the 99 LMS features in alphabetical order and not in an importance order.

Also, I would like to encourage you to leave a comment with the most important LMS features based on your opinion. I am not interested at comments that simply mention a LMS vendor. I am extremely interested to read what you consider as important LMS features and why?

Since, I have seen an increase interest for cloud-based LMSs, I created The Ultimate List of Cloud-Based Learning Management Systems  that is continuously updated.
