ELMSLN is a fundamentally new approach to LMS design. Instead of starting with 1 giant system, ELMSLN is built out more like Google Apps Suite or the Microsoft family of web applications. It’s often referred to more as a Next Generation Digital Learning Environment (NGDLE) rather then a traditional LMS.
