What are the benefits of having an LMS
I've recently begun working for a software company who have a bespoke product and I have been asked to provide a plan for training users on the use of the software.
My initial feelings are that we create a repository of how-to-videos demonstrating the software and use an authoring tool such as Articulate to add interaction to them.
However I'm struggling to see what the benefit is to buying an LMS when the majority of the eLearning will be in video format. Is the main reason just the tracking and reporting of trainees?
Would it not be better to host all the videos using a video content management system?
Any help or advice especially if you've had the same issue would be appreciated.
