E-learning Software and Learning Management System (LMS): Differences or Perfect Combination


  1. E-learning Software:

Definition: E-learning software, also known as an online learning system, primarily functions to provide online learning solutions through devices connected to the internet. E-learning software allows the product owner to design courses on the system and then share them with learners.


  1. Learning Management System (LMS):

Definition: LMS, or Learning Management System, is a software system that provides online lessons to learners, combined with various management and reporting features, serving organizations and businesses. Its core purpose is to distribute e-learning content to learners, enabling users to manage, organize, assign content, and oversee the entire online teaching process.


E-learning Software and Learning Management System


  1. Distinguishing E-learning Software and Learning Management System:

In essence, both of these systems aim to facilitate online learning, catering to remote and flexible learning, without geographical limitations and the ability to serve a large user base. However, E-learning software and Learning Management System have certain differences. To help customers understand when to opt for E-learning software development and when to choose Learning Management System development, let's explore the five key differences below:



E-learning Software

Learning Management System


E-learning software focuses on optimizing tools for online teaching, content management, and user experience

LMS concentrates more on functions such as data storage, management, and reporting.


The trend is to reach as many users (learners) as possible

Access to users is within the organization's allowable scope, requiring enhanced security measures

Integration Capabilities

E-learning software is designed to be lightweight, not integrating too many features to accommodate various platforms, and devices and high scalability. 

LMS comes with an extensive set of features and supports various integration types to serve specific user groups within a particular field.


As mentioned above, E-learning software is designed to be lightweight and less flexible compared to LMS systems.

Deployment Costs

Shorter development time resulting in lower costs.

Longer development time due to system complexity and customizations based on the organization's requirements, resulting in higher costs.


  1. Exploring the Usage and Development Needs of E-learning Software and Learning Management System:


If your business only needs to develop e-learning software without requiring complex backend management features, then you should choose E-learning software development. For example, you can develop Language Learning Software, sales skills learning, marketing learning, interior design learning, and more.


Multinational corporations and large enterprises: if you are looking for a software system for in-house training, you should consider your specific needs. After years of developing LMS and E-learning Software systems for clients in many countries, AEGONA has observed that:


  • Businesses can choose to develop an in-house e-learning app to meet internal training needs without the need for extensive management and integration features. This option is faster and more cost-effective.
  • Business can also opt for developing a Learning Management System if they require advanced management, control, and customized features. This process is more complex, time-consuming, and naturally involves higher costs.

Commonly Applied Fields: Insurance companies, the pharmaceutical industry, the manufacturing sector, fashion chain management, the banking sector, the food and beverage industry, etc.


Educational institutions, training centers, and educational technology companies: Especially those that offer a wide range of courses for diverse audiences. You will undoubtedly need a comprehensive online learning management system with integrated, complex, and custom-designed features tailored to your organization or business. Developing a Learning Management System is the most suitable choice. Additionally, businesses can combine the development of E-learning apps/software to support teaching activities and enhance the learner's experience.
