LAMS (Learning Activity Management System)
“The LAMS community website is a global community website for teachers and developers who use the LAMS software. LAMS creates “digital lesson plans” that can be run online with students, as well as shared among teachers. The LAMS Community allows teachers to share and adapt digital lesson plans, and discuss their experiences of using LAMS. Teachers, trainers and academics can find digital lessons plans that are freely available to use and adapt, and they can share their own creations and adaptations to the benefit of all education”.
