LMS: A learning management system LMS is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of electronic educational technology (also called e-learning) courses or training programs.

LCMS:By contrast, a learning content management system (LCMS) is a related software technology that provides a multi-user environment where developers, authors, instructional designers, and subject matter experts may create, store, reuse, manage, and deliver digital educational technology (also known as e-learning) content Management System

Yes, LCMSs manage content assets. Think of it as a specialize content management system for reusable learning content assets, mostly designed to assemble learning programs (e.g., e-learning courses, blended programs, etc.). A 'generalized' content management system for companies might manage content assets for company web sites, documents, engineering plans, etc.LMSs manage learning assets such as resources, scheduling, the catalog, learner transcript, etc. The 'resources' can include courses, in the catalog, etc. but not necessarily the sub-course/module assets (which may be in an LCMS).
The two go 'hand-in-glove' in well managed companies. Reality is that many learning organizations have not fully aligned these processes, as well as processes for aligning with other stakeholders in the organization. I read this article because it is not including worthless information. The author clearly describes the information. Thank you for sharing this types article. This will be very beneficiary for the readers.

I am really confused about the differences between a learning management system (LMS) and a learning content management system (LCMS). After reading your thread I feel more comfortable in handling the LMS LCMS. Thanks for sharing.
