Evolutionary history is a fascinating story to understand the depths of human endeavor. Have you ever wondered how Learning Management Systems came to be?

It goes without saying that modern LMSs draw inspiration from a lot of yesteryear’s inventions and innovations. I will be looking at the key milestones in the history of the LMS and give instances of machines/tools which have directly impacted the way LMSs work today.

In 1953, the University of Houston, USA, televised the first for-credit college course for people to learn right from the comfort of their homes. Video lectures/lessons were aired every evening so that everyone—including full-time workers—could benefit from the lessons, ensuring that learning was not compromised because of work commitments.
