LMS (Learning Management System) is a fully integrated web enabled learning platform, for student management and online delivery system incorporating such features as, an authoring system, classroom/facility management, communication such as news, email, duscussion, surveys, organization or college/department/class management.
Learnerships are similar to the traditional apprenticeships training system since they are both work-based methods for learning and gaining qualifications. Unlike apprenticeships which are trade specific and restricts training under one employer during the training period, learnerships builds on education and training gained through work-related areas and aims at promoting employability across occupational fields.

There's a huge variety of learning resources - anything that you use to support the learning process could be defined as a learning resource. This includes items such as print-based learner guides/workbooks, slideshow presentations, instructional videos, overhead transparencies, online courses or materials... to name just a few. Learning resources should be designed and/or sourced to suit learners' needs and as appropriate to the training delivery.

 Learning style
Learning styles are the different ways that people perceive, process and learn information. Different people prefer to learn in different ways. To accommodate this as educators we try to present content in different ways to suit different types of learners and to offer different types of learning activities.
