LMSs that kick ass: Mzinga
JANUARY 9, 2009
Mzinga is the result of a merger between KnowledgePlanet and Shared Insights at the end of 2007. My first encounter with them was when they were still known as KnowledgePlanet. My more recent contact at Mzinga is Dave Wilkins. I spoke with Dave via email about what Mzinga is doing with social media. Q: What social media tools is Mzinga incorporating into their LMS? A: Dave Wilkins - Mzinga has taken a comprehensive approach to social learning by developing three models throughout various components of our entire Social Learning Suite. Learn.com.

Communities / Social Networking and LMS Merger
DECEMBER 6, 2007
I've not seen a lot about Mzinga in the eLearning world, but it represents something pretty interesting. Mzinga is a merger of KnowledgePlanet (an LMS provider and also the maker of the eLearning simulation tool - Firefly) and Shared Insights - a community / business social networking software company. From what I can gather from the press releases and based on who's in charge of the combined company, it appears that KnowledgePlanet is somewhat the loser. The top execs at Mzinga are not the top execs from KnowledgePlanet. I wonder if mzinga does?
