Online education is fast becoming the new normal. If you are planning to shift your classroom online or kick start an eLearning platform, an LMS solution might ease your job.

Now given the number of top-rated LMS solutions out there, choosing the right LMS tool is important, and having tested Tutor LMS, I can easily recommend the WordPress plugin to power your next online learning marketplace. With Tutor LMS hosted on Cloudways, you can teach 100x more people (or 1000x, depending on your appetite) than you do currently.

In fact, we’ve partnered up with Themeum, the company that owns Tutor LMS, to allow users to launch the LMS on top of high-performance servers in 1-click for a highly convenient solution. More on this later, though.
