uninspiring - for both educators and employees. With the inclusion of

organizations are looking for cost-effective measures to safeguard their
assets and savings. A reasonably priced LMS or learning management system

are not only cost- effective but also help in tackling problems such as
lack of space, trainers and time. It is an interactive medium, wherein
the users can do a lot by himself without the involvement of the trainer.
The users can check their scores and transcripts, and also send
notifications. E-learning programs manage the learning of the corporate,
starting from preparation of the training calendar to designing pre- and
post-test assignments for them. The evaluation and report generation is
