An Introduction to Learning Management System (LMS) Plugins
In short, an LMS is a platform that enables you to manage a kind of online classroom.
Depending on the tool you’re using, you’ll be able to create classes, enroll students, set up tests, and much more.
Naturally, not every website needs these features, so LMSs are kind of a niche product.
However, they can be incredibly handy if you’re creating a school website or setting up an educational service.
Plus, some WordPress LMS plugins will even enable you to charge for your classes, which means you can use them as a way to generate income.
The only downside to using these kinds of tools in our opinion is that (for the most part) they aren’t compatible with each other.
It means if you decide to switch to a different system, you’ll probably need to start from scratch – so choose carefully!
