ATD2015 Conference Post – Review
MAY 27, 2015
Better organization of the conference – the Universal Studio thing was very cool – Big Win! CVENT is an event management system (not metrics), Saltbox and Watershed are Learning Record Stores, uh not really metrics – I mean they have them, but heck in that case shove every LMS under that as well. No Cornerstone OnDemand at the show – that was really surprising, especially since they push Learning Cloud; No Saba, again they are really pushing folks to Saba Cloud, and have stated their commitment to Learning.

LMSs that kick ass: GeoLearning
DECEMBER 5, 2008
Of all commercial LMSs, I probably have the most hands-on experience with GeoLearning ’s various products and services having managed an enterprise implementation several years ago. It was a multi-phase implementation (LMS, LCMS, Talent Management) that went off pretty smooth and the team at GeoLearning was great to work with. These are all integrated with our LMS platform so that informal learning can still be tracked, managed and measured as easily as more formal training programs. I wonder if that’s because it’s sometimes pitched to management that way?)

DECEMBER 12, 2008
However, LMSs are really better at managing prescribed learning, either mandated or suggested from the top of the organization. Latitude’s approach to developing a learning portal that creates a peer-to-peer, individual-driven learning environment depends on current existing technology, such as the Ektron 400 content management system. With features like WYSIWYG editors, Content Management Systems (CMSs) provide content management and rapid content update capabilities with a minimum of effort or technical expertise required.
