    My goal in the presentation and in these posts is to provide a basic process and try to capture specific areas that have been learned the hard way through these varied experiences to help define what makes a selection process successful. My custom implementation experience is generally with specialized content providers. I'm preparing for my part of an upcoming session at DevLearn on LMS selection as part of The Learning Management Systems Symposium. I'm going to prepare for this in a slightly different way. Help me make this presentation better. Please. Hence my reservations.

LMS tracking relies on creating a SCORM or AICC course which then communicates with the LMS in order to provide details of score, sections completed, which user it is, etc. Based on an earlier post - Tools for On-Demand Information - An LMS? , I received a couple of questions around tracking.

This is the fourth in a series of posts on Agile Learning Design: Post 1 - Agile Design: An Ethos for Creating Learning Platforms. Post 2 - Planning in Agile Learning Design. Post 3 - Orientation in Agile Learning Design. Note that the definition is based somewhat on Safer's (2007) definition of interaction design.
