The Best Learning Management Systems of 2019

Written by

Today’s corporate learning and business training goes past providing process documents and follow-along training days. The right training program can mean the difference between an employee’s first successful 90 days and a disengaged recruit. Most importantly, an engaging training program needs more than a decent wiki site to run on, it needs a well-chosen LMS.

The best learning management systems combine performance management, educational content, and good educational frameworks in a platform that engages the user and keeps them coming back to the tool over and over.
