Learning management systems (LMS)

Learning management systems would be an excellent tool in upper primary and secondary to deliver assessment tasks for students. A learning management system (LMS) can be used for delivering, tracking and managing training and education (Wikepedia, 2009). In the classroom teachers could the LMS's to distribute assessment tasks to students. The teacher would also be able to supply students with resources needed to complete the task as well as being able to monitor their progress. In upper classes the teacher could also give the students the choice of what and when they finish certain tasks as long as they were completed by the due date. Assignments on the LMS also allows students to use other technology-based tools such as PowerPoint, Voki's and YouTube. There are several LMS's and the user would need to work out which one would best suit their particular needs.
