MagicBox™ Partners – Key LMS Integrations
April 9th, 2020
Although learning management systems ease the process of delivery of learning content, there is much more to selecting an LMS than just that. One of the essential questions to ask when choosing a digital content distribution platform is: how does it integrate with other LMSes? This is because an LMS that works in isolation fails to perform at its full potential.
MagicBox™ is a powerful learning and publishing platform that is committed to offering comprehensive educational tools that makes the journey much easier and more satisfying, not just for the students, but also publishers and educational institutions.
