CMS/CLS (Anna Tahmasian)


content management system (CMS) is a computer application providing a collection of procedures such as publishing, editing, and modifying the content to manage workflow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual or computer-based. The procedures are designed to do the following:

                Allow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data

                Control access to data, based on user roles (defining which information users or user groups can view, edit, publish, etc.)

                Aid in easy storage and retrieval of data

                Control of data validity and compliance

                Reduce repetitive duplicate input

                Improve the ease of report writing

                Improve communication between users

In a CMS, data can be defined as nearly anything: documents, movies, text, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, and so forth.

learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, and reporting of training programs, classroom and online events, e-learning programs, and training content. A robust LMS should be able to do the following:

                Centralize and automate administration

                Use self-service and self-guided services

                Assemble and deliver learning content rapidly

                Consolidate training initiatives on a scalable web-based platform

                Support portability and standards

                Personalize content and enable knowledge reuse.
