I have developed many eLearning courses over the years and have loaded a few for clients into their Moodle sites, but usually I hand the courses off to someone who is responsible for the relationship between the course and the LMS. However, I know that to offer better services to my clients, I need to educate myself about LMS's, so I have a few basic questions I hope ya'll can help me with. These questions are specific to non-Moodle, paid-subscription type LMS (SumTotal, Docebo, etc.) for use with eLearning courses.
First of all, when purchasing an LMS, do most companies provide support and/or training to the purchaser so they can upload courses, set up enrollments, etc.? I mean the LMS provider doesn't do all that for you, do they? Or are there options for that? Does the provider do the initial setup, or does the purchaser have to learn and do that? How long does it typically take from the time of purchase to load in a single eLearning course and have it set up for students to enroll? If someone could just walk me through that process, I'd really appreciate it.
Also, if students have to pay to enroll, can that be handled through the LMS, or does the seller need a separate website for that?
That should get me started. Thanks for your help!
