Learning Management System is a software application that automates the administration, tracking and reporting of training events’. LMS is a pioneer project under e-Kranti (an eGovernance plan initiated by the Government of India) as a part of Digital India Programme initiated by the Government of India in 2015 with a vision to transform India into a digitally empowered society and a knowledge economy by leveraging IT as a growth engine. In line with this vision, it is widely recognised that there is a tremendous need to enhance the skill sets and to develop adequate number of appropriately trained resources for handling a variety of tasks including those who are expected to design and deliver Government services to the citizens.
National e-Governance Division is responsible for implementing the Capacity Building scheme intended to strengthen capacities within the Government departments at both Central and State level. The officials working in government organisations face a major challenge to find human resources equipped with specific skills and competencies in relevant areas, who can deliver Government services successfully. To overcome this challenge every department has to evolve its own Competency Framework (CF), which further acts as a baseline for developing the required training programmes with the objective – ‘Deploy Right and Develop Right’. These training programmes under Capacity Building scheme identify the right kind of training course for the right person that enables structuring the pre-defined job roles.
