Before we proceed, let's understand the differences between cloud-based LMS software and a hosted LMS. The main difference is that the cloud LMS is hosted on the supplier's servers and offered as service, while the installed LMS is offered as a product and is run on the servers within the organization's network. Both types offer entirely different user experiences, hosting capacities, structures, and resources, and are suitable for different budgets and implementation goals.
