What is Absorb LMS?

Looking for a learning management system that easily adapts and responds to various hardware? Absorb LMS may be the answer. It has an HTML5-based user interface that is intuitive and lets learners use their desktops, smartphones, and tablets to view content like courses and learning events. With Absorb LMS, users can take only the courses that they like and learn at their own pace, with lessons that contain exams, tasks, surveys, video, quizzes, documents, and more. Two versions of Absorb LMS are available: the standard one and a version that includes the Mercury Module, an optional add-on that requires users to have a hosted model. Enterprises can pay an activation fee to acquire a hosted license model version of Absorb LMNS, which they can then use to sell their own training courses. Whatever industry they may be in, companies can benefit from this flexible and powerful learning management solution. Online training courses that are sophisticated can be created and published, thanks to the software’s user-friendly admin interface, its scalable technology, its system options that are configurable, its customizable branding and integration options, and its fully-responsive mobile sites. Brands like Dole, New Balance, NYU, Sony, and hundreds more use this technology.

Absorb LMS Benefits


The main benefits of Absorb LMS are its ability to automate training, its Mercury Module add-on, and its ability to add branding elements.

Absorb LMS is a user-friendly learning management system that can either be installed on servers or can be hosted. It is e-commerce enabled, and educational units, points, or credits can be issued.

Internal and external training courses can be easily assembled and tracked with the use of Absorb LMS. The creation and distribution of training courses can be automated since the software uses cloud technology.

Users who take on a hosted model are provided with the Mercury Module add-on, which uses several features for a better experience. Learners are educated through targeted blogs, employees are pushed to a healthy competition through its leader board strategy, and new courses can be supported with the use of sliding banners in the training portal.

Branded courses can also be created with Absorb LMS, with company logos, terminology, course images, and colors incorporated in the courses. Language choices also allow users to pick a language unique to their region. Learning portals can be made in line with the company website design and aesthetic.

Absorb LMS also helps businesses to monetize the courses that they make through its e-commerce module. Courses can be sold to new learners or existing ones and can be sold individually or in bundles. Exclusive shopping carts can be created for learners outside of the company, and pricing can be varied for non-members and members. Enrollment keys can also be used to sell courses in bulk.
