    Every LMS and LCMS is different and every provider uses their own judgment when deciding what to call their product. So, always check with your provider, or prospective provider, and ask them about their system’s specific features to see if they fit your association’s needs. The fact that providers often use “LMS” and “LCMS” interchangeably is what causes confusion. Remember, if a system offers content creation it’s an LCMS, even if the provider calls it an LMS.
