We use this chord diagram in our LMS subscription, offered with MindWires, to show the movement in the LMS market – from the old system to the new system. We got great feedback, so we decided to use the same format to represent the relationship between the LMS market and the SIS market.
As most of you know, several LMS are out there. We show the top 11 that represents about 95% of the market.
The SIS market is even more crowded. We show the top 12 used by HigherEd institutions.
Each line represents one HigherEd institution. It links the learning management system and its student information system.
The data is based on 4,072 institutions for which we have both the active SIS and LMS in our database.
The proportions of LMS and SIS are not necessarily representative of market share. We simply took a subset of institutions that had both a SIS and a LMS system listed in our database.
