LMS/LCMS Puzzlers

eLearning 24-7

Just some thoughts that puzzle me on why some LMS/LCMS vendors (okay over 98% of them) are still in some time warp from the Eighties when it comes time to enhance their services and technological solutions.  Unfortunately, we do not have that luxury when buying YOUR LMS/LCMS. Better yet, is that you e-mail your LMS/LCMS vendor’s tech support and it is as though it goes into a black hole and is never seen again. No follow-up, zip. How many times have they not responded within that time frame and then you have to pick up the phone and call them? Fantastic.

APIs and Mashups r ur new ABCs for E-Learning

eLearning 24-7

An API (Application Program Interface) enables an interface from a piece of software to communicate with another piece of software (in its simplest form) or multiple pieces of software (called a mashup).  Here is just a few of ones I like, that are unique and you could use in your LMS/LCMS/CMS, Learning Portal (caveat: your vendor must be able to accept APIs, otherwise it won’t work). Mashups. Search for restaurants in Google and Google Maps shows up with the various restaurants on the map. Why would I want to have an API in my LMS/LCMS or CMS? Blogger.

Moodle: Pros, Challenges

eLearning 24-7

More of a course management system, than a LCMS/LMS as they try to push it. I say this because its real strength IMO is in the education sector, and you see it,  in its overall presentation.  APIs and mashups – which is really can expand Moodle to the next level of learning. The biggest challenge you will face with Moodle, and in many cases with open source LMS/LCMS solutions is that you need to have strong technical skills. Moodle and some other open source LMS/LCMS solutions are not really “out of the box” solutions. are NOT out of the box solutions.

Social Learning, Social Media – Brothers in Arms

eLearning 24-7

Is it me or does it seem that most vendors in the LMS/LCMS market still believe that with some smoke and mirrors, you won’t realize that social media actually must be integrated into social learning for it to exist? expo clearly shows and some argue that social media some grew up within the web 2.0 With APIs and mashups, who knows where it can go. While some vendors in the LMS/LCMS space will argue that they offer similar “real life&# social media offerings in their solution, the key here is “similar&#. ″? See, it is social learning. Not!!!

Social Learning and LMSs Marketplace

As social learning continues to grow, LMS/LCMS vendors are taking various approaches.  LMS/LCMS vendors are following one of three approaches when it comes to social learning. Time for these vendors to wake up, or see your audience share disappear. There is a mid segment of the vendors in the LMS/LCMS or learning portal markets that offer some features of social learning, as part of their standard system or as their “add on modules&#.

Especially, when vendors released their 2010 final numbers and saw big increases from the previous year. For example, Cornerstone On Demand, 46.6M USD in 2010, 29.3M USD in 2009. The reason Cornerstone suffered losses in 2010, was largely caused by a change in fair value of preferred stock warrant liabilities. In 2009 and 2010, many vendors in the LMS market, tossed in items that at one time were extra fees. If you as the customer want to create your own API/Mashup or find one on the net and want to integrate it into your paid LMS, the vendor will charge you.

Five Myths of Social Learning

Dawn of Learning

Contrary to what we’d like to believe, social learning doesn’t always start at the training department and work its way up, quite the opposite. So while implementing social media tools provided by an LCMS or LMS vendor may ensure departmental adoption, experience and today’s market show us that enterprise adoption of these tools is not a likely reality. Home About Podcasts Videos Xyleme Inc. According to a McKinsey executive survey , a whopping 71% of enterprises are using Web 2.0 tools for training purposes and this figure is rising fast.
