A LMS is great for distant learning and hospital home bound students. I have used a LMS for managing a regular classroom. The benefits of using LMS are door to your classroom are never closed, learning can take place during the breaks, teachers can enrich the classroom with many different types of media, students can also provide different types of media to the classroom also. CMS can be great for creating different types of media for students and the classroom. There are many different types of CMS today, Google and Microsoft both have learning platforms for students and educators. I have used Game Lab to run a gamification classroom. This was great for many of my students but some of my students didn't enjoy the gamification part from this LMS.
