LMS Low-Cost Webinars Hosted eCommerce Subscriptions

Tony Karrer

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. I'm a little concerned how well LMS solutions will handle the webinar integration and the subscriptions.

What I learned about webinars from Adobe

Clive on Learning

In June I participated in a webinar which Adobe ran as part of its Summer Masterclass series. Because this was a great example of why webinars which let people interact freely work much better than when you simply get to make a presentation. But surely the limit for any webinar is an hour? I know it's taken me two months or more to get round to it, but I did feel the event taught me some interesting lessons.

Enhancing Interactions with Media Elements

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Diehard fans of Raptivity loved the Raptivity Media Toolbox that was showcased in a recent webinar. A few years back, e-learning courses were largely static, with a few interactions here and there. As interactivity takes center stage, more and more learning happens through interactions. A learner may spend more time working through a simulation, playing a game or exploring an interactive visual than reading the course material.
