Under this mobile learning misrepresentation, I can tell you that nearly every system out there – can make this argument – because if you can open up Safari and go to the vendor’s web site and then into your SaaS based LMS – then guess what? Click on the app and your default browser opens and off you go. As I often say to folks, what is the point of having an app, if all it does is open up my browser. I can do the same thing, without using your app. Open Source Commercial. Academia/Higher Ed Open Source System of the Year.

Open Source life, LMSs beyond Moodle

Learning Rocks

I've recently become a fan of Open Source Living , a site that rounds up the best of the many and varied OS apps that are out there. Moodle is of course THE open source e-learning item of the moment*1. The Open University have spent a lot of money on it, which has in turn seen more people pick it up, it is getting an enormous established user base (for something in the educational sphere its remarkable apparently*2) and its adoption in the corporate sphere is championed by no lesser luminaries of the UK scene than Kineo ( 2 ). Again, looks pretty. Marvellous.

Best of the Best – NextGen LMSs

eLearning 24-7

Heck, some folks think next gen can align with open source platforms such as Moodle. I’m not seeing that in all honesty.  Docebo -  Here comes the company, all dressed in snazzy design.  Docebo also includes some courses into the platform that they created at no additional charge.  One of the latest hip words to use in the industry is “next gen”   Next gen can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people.  For me, next gen systems are next generation, the future of the learning management system market, but there is a caveat to all that.

There is a lot of variation with this model because some vendors (particularly those who build on open source platforms) don’t charge user fees, while others offer unlimited “enterprise” pricing after you cross a specified user or revenue threshold.  If your organization serves many learners or is expecting to scale up quickly, this may be your best bet.

For free. (I’m a recent convert, perhaps on the path to open source evangelism.) So what are some of the hurdles to overcome in the corporate market?

Talented individuals who can program like hell and believe in the open source philosophy. But the beauty of open source is you can customize it. think the time for open source is now.
