Cluster: Educational technology

A cluster of topics related to the use of technology in education to improve learning and teaching.

Teaching technology platforms

Platforms that connect teachers and students.

Learning management systems

Learning Management Systems (LMS) administer, document, track, report and deliver learning. Educational assets are uploaded to the Learning Management System, which makes them accessible for remote learners. In some cases, the LMS may have built-in eLearning authoring tools that allow the user to develop online training materials without additional third-party software.
