A Guide to a Content Management System

The Basics of a Content Management System

The phrase content management system or CMS, has become a popular one in the technology sector, yet there are still some people who are unsure of exactly what it refers to.

Essentially a content management system is a type of web-based software that provides the ability for several users to manage learning or training content.

This means that depending on one’s permission level within the content management system, there may be methods for creating, launch and managing a variety of e-Learning and corporate training information and tools.

With a content management system from eLeaP, it’s possible to develop and publish content without having prior HTML or web-development knowledge, and then continue to manage that content as it becomes available to users. Part of the management process can include everything from inviting individuals to participate in a particular training course, to tracking results of quizzes and gathering feedback from assessments.

With a content management system everything is stored within a web-based application so there’s no need for the installation of hardware or software.
