LMS Low-Cost Webinars Hosted eCommerce Subscriptions

Tony Karrer

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. What?

Learning Technology Blogs: An Analyst’s Reading List

Talented Learning

NetDimensions SVP Strategy and Design, Gray Fowler, explains. When you need solid advice about learning strategy and technology, which blogs come to mind? Are any LMS vendors on that list? Or do you dismiss them because you assume they’re too self-serving? If you’ve been ignoring LMS vendor blogs, it’s time to take a closer look. I’m not an LMS vendor.

R U Maximizing your M-Learning Experience?

eLearning 24-7

Sure there are early adopters (ExpertusOne for on/off synch, NetDimensions with mobile LMS on jump drive), but as with anything else – it is lemmings. I am a huge fan of Columbo (detective show starring the late Peter Falk). As such, a recent (okay from the early 70s) episode had a psychologist (murderer) on talking about control of words and how they control you. . I think that the control of words is more than just a part of a tv script, rather in some instances it can be true. Chat with business consumers and mobile is just a device. For vendors, well that is another story.

Talented Learning

NetDimensions. Learning management systems didn’t die. They evolved, and today we recognize them. Quick LMS History. Corporate LMSs were invented almost 30 years ago to manage and report on the training and compliance of their employees and contractors. They were expensive to purchase, implement, maintain, host, upgrade and replace. Starting around 2010, the market began changing again.

Low Cost LMS - Help Needed

Tony Karrer

I received an inquiry about the need for a low cost LMS solution and I've not had time to help this person with answers. I'm hoping folks can chime in with suggestions and resources. I'll try to aggregate them together. Situation description: I have talked to several vendors and have received quotes at the 6-8k (per year) range for the licensing. We have roughly 500 learners and would use the LMS for mainly tracking and registration of ILT courses, communication (possibly through message boards), and posting of class materials. Do you have any recommendations on which programs to consider?

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.
