e-Literate’s LMS Market Dynamics Study reveals LMS trends within higher education across four regions around the globe. Major shifts are occurring in higher education purchasing and implementation, as Cloud-based solutions and increased interoperability fuel a dynamic market. While Canvas is the fastest growing LMS worldwide, Blackboard is the second most-used system globally behind Moodle. D2L Brightspace saw the same number of implementations in 2017 as Canvas, reflecting its growing presence in North America. Europe is also much more fragmented than the U.S.A. with only one private LMS brand with more than 5% marketshare.
