What is the Army Learning Management System (ALMS)?

Army Learning Management System (ALMS) is the Army’s official Learning Management System. It was designed to provide a centralized, secure, and easily accessible platform for Army personnel to gain access to educational, training, and professional development at any time.

It’s a flexible web-based system that is modified to offer the right amount of security for every user.

The ALMS assists in reducing the time that instructors spend on administrative tasks, such as designing courses, creating lesson plans, assigning duties, and gathering information.

It also allows collaboration between students, instructors, and other participants, including commanders, senior leaders, and command staff. The ALMS is modular in design that allows for simple interconnection with various systems, such as Army Knowledge Online (AKO), ePortal, and Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support ( DANTES). The ALMS was designed to be used by all levels that comprise the army, not only in the training environment. It is being used in various locations and has been implemented on a variety of platforms. The system is currently being developed to enable other military organizations around the globe to make use of the system.
