    The smartest of these organizations don’t then abandon instructor-led learning, but rather aim to provide learners with quality content in many different formats and learning modalities: In evaluating learning management systems, you should consider the ability of the LMS to support instructor-led events even if you presently think you’ll only be serving self-paced courses to your learners.

    [Providers] E-Learning courware or LMS – Which comes first?
    Many e-learning & Learning Management System (LMS) providers say you should purchase a LMS before developing e-learning courseware. There are probably 3 broad options you can take in this situation: Use an e-learning authoring tool that provides very basic completion tracking. Some tools provide an automatic email function, enabling learners to send an email when they have passed an assessment. Some authoring tools have a simple tracking system that provides a single report of completions. Choose to internally host the LMS, or have the provider host it for you.
    [Providers] The Content or the LMS? Which Comes First?
    Before EITHER the content or LMS is considered, it is important to step back and think: Who am I providing this content for and why do they need it? If you cannot answer either of those questions, then neither content NOR an LMS will help you provide successful educational material. Unfortunately, an LMS without content will not help provide education. Then again, content alone will not provide efficient education. You need both. Without content the LMS is an empty cookie jar. It’s pretty looking but frustrating every time you open it. Share this on Facebook.

    One of the strengths of gamification is that it provides visible milestones of the student’s mastery of content in real time (when it is well designed).

    [Providers] Understanding Learning Approaches to define Learning Strategies: the Key to create impactful Corporate Learning
    The learning strategy that can overcome this is to provide learners with ‘bite-sized’ learning. Providing an audio background to the e-course can often shut out background noises and disturbances. The audio provides necessary learning impact and also helps the learner to concentrate more. Thus learners who have some knowledge can skip basic introductions and go right ahead to sections which provide them with additional knowledge. For instance, interactivities like ‘click-to-reveal’ can be added which can provide detailed information if so required.
