LMSs that kick ass: Learn.com
DECEMBER 26, 2008
This week on the Friday series, LMSs that kick ass , I’ m pleased to feature Learn.com ’s LearnCenter system. By way of background, Learn.com’s primary customer base is corporate universities and their total number of registered ‘learners’ is reported at over 2,000,000 worldwide at several hundred organizations. The employee will not only be able to host a personal website, but also manage their profile, manage personal blogs, wikis, forums, chats, upload content including flash files, audio files, podcasts, RSS feeds, images, and documents.
LMS Low-Cost Webinars Hosted eCommerce Subscriptions
OCTOBER 13, 2011
I was talking with a startup that has an existing audience and now want to provide a monthly subscription for access to training to this audience. They will only convert a portion of the audience to the new service. 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. Why Do We Have an LMS?
#HRTECH Learning Vendors Preview – Who to see and who to avoid
OCTOBER 14, 2015
The system was in my top 50 in 2015 and 2014. I mean if you are a hardcore SharePoint person who wants an LMS built on SharePoint, then ELF is a serious contender (there is really only one other who is close, but they are not at HR Tech, so sorry, no name mentioning). Personally, I’m not a fan of the “profiles” piece – I see other variables as better options. Welcome, welcome all! To those from HR who are new to this blog, I give a high five. To those who have been constant readers, I give a high five with a low five to boot. Some would call that vapor.

User Friendly or Hype?
MARCH 12, 2011
Learn.com? What if you are sick or out that day OR the person you have hired to create these courses is terminated, laidoff or quits. Do you have someone who can jump in quickly, and create some type of course? Vendors nowadays provide training early on after you get the product, and then assume that the person will remember everything weeks later. If not, they have a user guide – which is sometimes so lengthy or missing key information, that the person is left guessing. We are user friendly. Very easy to use. Simple, easy to use. We never hear complaints.
LMSs that kick ass: Mzinga
JANUARY 9, 2009
final driver in our decision to enable social learning is the fundamental disconnect emerging between how we learn and contribute in our personal lives versus how we learn and contribute at work. In our personal lives, we can create a blog post, edit a wiki, share bookmarks, follow each other, microblog, discuss virtually any topic, find expertise and experts, connect to those experts, share ideas, rate and review any sort of material—and we can do all this in an afternoon. Learn.com. It’s Friday yay! That means it’s time to feature another LMS that kicks ass!

E-Learning Trade Shows + Product Reviews 4 #TK11
JANUARY 28, 2011
Attendance booth person is attentive – more than at most trade shows across the board, that I have been to. Taleo Learn - formally known as Learn.com. The Learn.com product was a very nice solution, but only if you purchased their enterprise with the required minimum number of seats and with all the add-ons that came with it. I was planning on writing about emerging technology and virtual worlds. However, with ASTD’s TechKnowledge 2011, starting next week, I’m going to hold off until after TK11, to write on virtual worlds. Learning Trade Shows. The Good.
Rapid Learning Management Systems
OCTOBER 20, 2009
personally believe that it would be better for these systems to accept SCORM content from a few of the top authoring tools. Rather that they generally are a hosted LMS solution that roughly corresponds to most of the requirements: Coggno LearnHub Litmos Odijoo Learn.com Personal Edition Articulate Online CourseMill CourseMax Xerceo TrainingAtom Geo On-Demand Upside Learning Upside LMS Ultralearn What other systems should be on the list? I'd like to creating this as self-paced eLearning possibly with other capabilities as well. And I want to charge for this. It's hosted.

LMS Vendors: U Can Survive – Innovate, Invigorate and Invent
NOVEMBER 18, 2010
Remember, Taleo purchased Learn.com, another vendor is integrating with SuccessFactors, and there are plenty of LMS vendors who are moving more into the TM space, so creating a mini HRIS system is smart business. This goes beyond the standard repository of a CMS, which seems in-personal. Having my own virtual desk, is personal. Perpetuating the Myth. Thus, the LMS vendors are creating a Bogeyman – their own bogeyman, and it does not have to be that way. Majority of employees access social media sites out of the workplace. Secondly, it is just not social networking.

Better Conferences - Response Needed
JUNE 18, 2007
Now, I'm personally not ready to throw in the towel on conferences. Better Fun Activities I'm not sure that I know how to make this happen for more attendees, but Beer Tasting at ASTD TechKnowledge , Boston, Beer - Bloggers - Learn.com and similar things at ASTD in Atlanta were definitely fun. I'm pretty sure it's not just me. believe we can build better conferences. because most conferences have these same problems. Certainly a big part of the issue is that attendees are quite willing to hop on a plane to attend a conference, but are much less willing to spend time preparing.
