Custom eLearning Portals using a Multi-Tenant LMS
Along with course development, corporate eLearning technologies now support the ability for administrators to customize the delivery platform in order to further enhance the learning experience. The core technology that supports all types of eLearning programs, including online corporate training, is a Learning Management System, or “LMS”. An LMS is the application that is used to build, deliver, and track eLearning programs. And while LMS technology has been around for quite some time, a relatively recent architectural development is the availability of multitenancy.
A multi-tenant LMS (in contrast with a single tenant LMS) allows the learning administrator to “spin up” new instances of the application in order to create private, customized eLearning environments (portals). Each portal can be uniquely branded and can offer the specific categories and courses required to accomplish program objectives.
