Avoid Confusion: Hide the SumTotal LMS Player Controls Using Articulate Storyline 2
JUNE 30, 2016
I recenly worked on a e-learning course developed using the rapid authoring tool, Articulate Storyline and published it to SumTotal LMS. By default, the SumTotal LMS provides navigational elements on top of the screen to every course published to it. So in this blog post, I’m going to share how you can hide the navigation elements at top of the course provided by the SumTotal LMS.
#HRTECH Learning Vendors Preview – Who to see and who to avoid
OCTOBER 14, 2015
If I was to compare the Big Dog Four – SuccessFactors, Saba, Cornerstone OnDemand and SumTotal by Skillsoft, Saba would win hands down. SumTotal by Skillsoft. SumTotal ruined IMO the GeoLearning LMS known as Maestro and will Skillsoft buying SumTotal, I wondered to myself whether this would be great or awful. Anyway, SumTotal is another system heading towards the HCM space. Plus why are you AICC course standard? SCORM yes – AICC? Welcome, welcome all!

MAY 27, 2015
A few of the Top 50 LMS vendors in attendance: Growth Engineering, ExpertusOne, eLogic Learning, Docebo, Administrate, SumTotal, NetDimensions, Litmos, LearnUpon, iSpring Online, Totara, Shift IQ, IMC-AG, Blackboard, D2L, Biz Library.

Well hello there! It will have checklists and templates too. SCORM.
Courseware LMSs – Good or bad for the industry?
JUNE 21, 2016
I once recall a conversation I had with Skillsoft, before they purchased SumTotal. . I know there are courseware providers who have course standards including AICC, but again, as folks know – I think AICC should be removed and placed in the Smithsonian as a relic. . SumTotal Learn now includes a bundle of courses as part of your purchase. Y o u may be sitting right now with third party content in your LMS. Maybe you purchased it via Open Sesame, or Skillsoft. They didn’t advertise that they would do this, but hey, ask and see what returns. Lets assess.

DECEMBER 20, 2011
Thus, your competition expands: Large size vendors such as Saba, Cornerstone On Demand, SumTotal, Taleo, SuccessFactors – recently acquired by SAP. no SCORM, AICC or PENS – however, I am now seeing a few vendors offer PENS (created by AICC back in 2005, but slowly gaining traction). Every year, I identify five trends that I am seeing in the industry as a whole, and forecast on where they will be heading throughout the year. In 2011, I saw quite a few items that resonated. LMSs/LCMS/CMS/learning platforms in commercial and open space continued their presence.
Top 10 LMS Forecasts for 2015
JANUARY 5, 2015
One of the most interesting items which presents to me an unknown variable is CMI-5, a compliance standard (formally with AICC) now headed up by ADL. There are already some vendors doing this – eLogic Learning includes close to 130 courses, when you buy their system, Docebo includes some courses with their platform, SumTotal does too (since being acquired by Skillsoft), and there are others as well.

eLearning on a Global Scale
AUGUST 7, 2008
SumTotal. So, here’s where I’m a newbie: When purchasing off-the-shelf content, do vendors typically provide you with separate SCORM/AICC files for each language? I was presented with an interesting task recently: I was asked to recommend a learning management system (LMS) that can support 6 different languages (English, French, French-Canadian, Italian, German, and Spanish). This is new territory to me; I have only worked with LMSs and eLearning courses in English. I read data sheets and sales-speak until my eyes glazed over. Sheesh.).
