    Report

    The information in this Gartner report presents an overview of the SIS and LMS market and company background for each vendor. The purpose is to help district, school, and technology leaders understand the complex market of vendors with different breadth and depth of solutions, and geographical and customer-size offerings.  This is a great tool for District Leaders to understand trends in the SIS and LMS solutions market and focus subsequent efforts to initiate a product selection and implementation effort.

    Report

    A key underlying premise of this project is that by capturing and analyzing the data housed in Student Information Systems (SIS) and Learning Management Systems (LMS), the education community can positively impact classroom practice and ultimately student learning. This report aggregates information on selection and implementation practices for school districts of all sizes from the perspective of the Teachers, District, School, and Technology/IT leaders involved in those activities.
