LMS Low-Cost Webinars Hosted eCommerce Subscriptions
OCTOBER 13, 2011
The learners will get access to webinars, recorded webinars, videos, and other online content that they will author separately. They don't really have a tech team, so going with a hosted solution that would live at a subdomain would be best, i.e., subscribers would go to: learn.company.com in order to sign up, pay, and get access to webinars, content, etc. I'm a little concerned how well LMS solutions will handle the webinar integration and the subscriptions. They will only convert a portion of the audience to the new service. Why Do We Have an LMS?

What I learned about webinars from Adobe
Clive on Learning
AUGUST 18, 2011
In June I participated in a webinar which Adobe ran as part of its Summer Masterclass series. Because this was a great example of why webinars which let people interact freely work much better than when you simply get to make a presentation. But surely the limit for any webinar is an hour? know it's taken me two months or more to get round to it, but I did feel the event taught me some interesting lessons. First of all, this was at first sight an elaborately orchestrated event, staged by dreamtek.tv for Adobe. We had a formal panel show set and a full video crew.
