Indianapolis, INLearning NewsOpen LMS

Open LMS has been recognized as a top learning management system for its work in helping millions of users adapt to remote and online learning as a result of the pandemic.

Open LMS, the leading provider of open-source learning systems, has been named a 2021 5-Star Service Provider by The Educator Australia for its innovative work in helping millions of users adapt to an effective online learning model during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Educator 5-Star Service Provider 2021 Awards celebrates companies that have supported Australia’s teachers and students through a turbulent year. Open LMS was named as one of the leading performers in the Learning Management Systems (LMS) category due to its ability to address issues top of mind for users such as ease of use, security and privacy protection, capabilities to track student progress, and much more.

“At Open LMS, we are proud to support our users as many faced drastic shifts over the past year to a new way of teaching and learning,” said Phill Miller, Managing Director of Open LMS. “These accolades reinforce our mission and drive to deliver an effective and engaging learning platform to our clients and help them reach their full potential in their educational goals.”

Open LMS has an international presence as one of the world’s largest open-source LMS providers. Over the past year, Open LMS has experienced exponential growth in the demand for online learning services, as the pandemic universally reshaped how education is delivered. In August, Open LMS announced its half-year results with 20% in new growth sales and the addition of 103 new clients.

Additionally, Open LMS recently advanced in 13 different categories for the LearnX® Live Awards, which is the premier accolade in the world of learning and talent. One recognition is in the “Shift-it-Online” category, which is awarded to a service provider who repurposed and/or redesigned an existing product for online delivery in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Open LMS will learn whether its platform will be named bronze, silver or gold in 13 categories during the LearnX® Live Virtual Summit & Awards Show November 17-18, 2021.
