Environmental Essentials online workplace learning has been developed to assist SME to Multi-National Organizations. Our Learning Management System (LMS) is SCORM compliant and has been developed to be extremely simple and easy to use.


A Learning Management System (LMS) is a tool for the collation and administration of learning content. It is a software application or web-based technology used to plan, implement and access a specific learning process. Typically, a LMS provides an instructor with a way to create and assess student performance.

Environmental Essentials have taken the approach to split users and courses, allowing flexible assignment of training to differing groups of employees. This in turn allows organisations to keep control of their training budgets and manage available training time effectively.

This is achieved by constant communication between the Learning Content and the LMS. As the user progresses through their training, the training content is constantly sending data back to the LMS.

Feature Of Our LMS

This is what our LMS can do for your company using a dashboard approach to view and monitor progress.
Manage Users. The users of the LMS include the administrator of the LMS, the administrators of groups and learners. The LMS and group administrators can add, delete and edit users in the groups that they control.

Add Users. Fast and efficient upload of individual and multi users
Email Alerts for. The LMS can generate email alerts to advise the users and managers of when they have been registered on a course, reminders of forthcoming course expiry, notification of refresher courses due.
View Reports. The LMS provides reports on courses and learners.
Manage Groups. The LMS administrator can create one or more additional groups. Each group contains learners. A learner can only belong to a single group.
Manage Courses. The LMS administrator can publish SCORM-based courses. A published course can be set to active or inactive. An active course can be placed in the catalog and can be assigned to learners.
Edit The Catalog. The catalog is a collection of courses. The learner browses the catalog to find courses that he or she would like to launch. The catalog can be organized by headings. Headings can contain multiple levels of sub-headings.
Set System Options. The LMS administrator sets system options to control the behavior of the LMS.
View Reports. A group administrator can get reports on his/her group

Learning Styles

We appreciate that people learn in a variety of ways; our e-learning systems aim to cover most types of learners. Not all learning styles may be available in each course but we aim to cover, where possible the following across the spectrum of courses.
Visual Learners - Visual learners are those who generally think in terms of pictures. They often prefer to see things written down in a handout, text or on the presentation slides.
Auditory Learners - Auditory learners are those who generally learn best by listening. They typically like to learn through lectures, discussions, and reading aloud.
Kinaesthetic Learners - Kinaesthetic, also called tactile, learners are those who learn best through touching, feeling, interacting, and experiencing that which they are trying to learn.
