PreK-12 Learning Management Systems: A Market Overview
As schools advance in the creation of digital learning environments, Simba Information brings its established analytics to this still-emerging technology area in the brand new report PreK-12 Learning Management Systems: A Market Overview.

The report examines the role of Learning Management Systems (LMSs), which already are beginning to reshape the delivery, management, and administration of educational content in the U.S. PreK-12 sector, enabling cost-savings, convenience, new more personalized pedagogical models, and new opportunities for system and content providers. To provide crucial market intelligence on this developing segment, Simba Information is partnering with leading education market research firm MCH Strategic Data to conduct a survey of public school- and district-level educators on their current use of and future plans for learning management systems.

Simba defines learning management systems as organizational software enabling the administration, tracking and reporting of student information across all types of educational activities; the delivery of courses; and the facilitation of collaboration and communication.
