    The Learning Management System (LMS) and Learning and Development (L&D) markets have been changing dramatically due to accelerated digital transformation in the last 12 months. Companies have needed to rapidly accelerate the shift from paper and in-person training to eLearning and online engagement, or formally adopt such practices at all levels across the organization. Because of this, the learning experience has evolved for some from the formal LMS to a more digitally social, personalized experience we call the “Learning Experience” or "LX".
