Blended learning

Pennsylvania Hybrid Learningblended learningblended
LMSs are focused on online learning delivery but support a range of uses, acting as a platform for fully online courses, as well as several hybrid forms, such as blended learning and flipped classrooms.
The limitation to CD-ROMs was tracking completion of coursework, so learning management systems emerged as a way to facilitate progress tracking.

Educational technology

e-learningeducational technologyICT
The history of the application of computers to education is filled with broadly descriptive terms such as computer-managed instruction (CMI), and integrated learning systems (ILS), computer-based instruction (CBI), computer-assisted instruction (CAI), and computer-assisted learning (CAL).
Accordingly, virtual education refers to a form of distance learning in which course content is delivered by various methods such as course management applications, multimedia resources, and videoconferencing.

OLAT

Online Learning And Training
In 2000, the University of Zurich revolutionized the concept of digitized learning by introducing the first open-source LMS called OLAT.
It is a web application – a so-called Learning Management System that supports any kind of online learning, teaching, and tutoring with few educational restrictions.

Moodle

A year later, the LMS development industry welcomed Microsoft and its first SCORM-certified learning suite SharePoint. There are a variety of integration strategies for embedding content into LMSs, including AICC, SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) and LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability). There are several standards for creating and integrating complex content into an LMS, including AICC, SCORM, xAPI and Learning Tools Interoperability.
It defines communications between client side content and a host system (called "the run-time environment"), which is commonly supported by a learning management system.
