Lectures are captured in specialised AV equipped rooms (A1) or big theatre or event centres (A2) or using desktop and mobile capturing systems by individual teachers. Lectures are also captured remotely and delivered via the internet as in (A4). The different media output are passed to authoring and/or CMS.
The output of the multimedia capturing equipment are combined together into multimedia content typically for delivery on the World Wide Web using specialised software and high end computers (B1). The resulting content are then stored on the servers locally (B2) or in the cloud.
A learning management system (LMS) is a software-based platform that facilitates the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of educational courses or eLearning programs. While some access the lectures through the local LAN and WIFI on their smart phones, tablets and PCS, a lot more others access on the Internet, individually (C1) on their smart phones, tablets and PCS, some in groups at a viewing centre (C3) and some in a remote classroom (C4).
While LMSs are focused on online eLearning delivery they also 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.
