This paper outlines the fundamental factors that emerge when determining whether a LMS would be an advantage in any given educational environment. Administrators, computer co-ordinators and even classroom teachers are being asked to help determine whether their institution should invest in a Learning Management System. Many know little about the area, their technical skills vary widely and most are unable to tell sales people what they want, let alone negotiate their way through to the best deal. This paper provides a balanced overview of what learning environments can expect from a learning management system.
