Seven Questions a Startup Must Ask The LMS Vendor

Disprz

As per research, there are more than 700 LMS vendors in the market today. Some LMS solutions don’t have the required features and fail to scale with the challenging learning trends. It is essential to be extra cautious and assess the long-term value of the learning tool.

Will Learning Adopt the Linux Model for Development in the Future?

It was very interesting to draw parallels between some of what he says and learning. The data contained would be open and you’d be able to seamlessly go from vendor to vendor, perhaps an individuals data would follow them from system to system. Will Moodle evolve into this system or will another ecosystem similar to the Linux model emerge in the learning space? I look to it positively, either way it’ll make learning easier and better focused.

LMS Vendors: U Can Survive – Innovate, Invigorate and Invent

eLearning 24-7

It was within these comments, that afterwords, I decided to expand a bit plus identify other areas that I see, LMS vendors must explore – which they have not yet done so, to re-energize themselves. Thus, the LMS vendors are creating a Bogeyman – their own bogeyman, and it does not have to be that way. Majority of employees access a LMS or Learning Portal out of the workplace. Far too many LMS vendors are stuck in a rut. Social Learning.

The trends apply to both LMS/LCMS vendors. Extended Enterprise - Vendors are expanding into the wholesaler/reseller/affiliates/sales agent sector with their solutions.

Not all of the big dog vendors have entered this space, despite it being a huge revenue opportunity. and European vendors interestingly enough, do not follow suit.

You work online via the servers of your vendor. I had thought that this trend would be dying out, but it is amazing at the number of vendors who are entering the space and still focused on the desktop approach. Despite the overwhelmingly number of vendors who have a “desktop only&# solution, based on what I am seeing- a result of new feature sets – this will change. Mobile Learning. Hmm, oh yeah mobile learning. Vendors to Watch.

eLearning: xAPI is Geek Free and Ready to Go

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

This isn't the dumbing-down of the specification or possibilities it holds for the industry so much as it is the provision of accessible, entry-level ways to take advantage of xAPI as a stepping stone to providing deeper learning experiences across the whole enterprise. Here's the evidence:  Four leading courseware development tools have adopted the specification, putting the creation of xAPI statements within reach of the average elearning instructional designer/developer.

Are Innovation and Education a Perfect Couple or a Dangerous Match?

mLevel

The question: “Is all this innovation a good fit for educators and learning professionals alike… or a dangerous dance partner? ”. For many years this has not been a problem as the technology community has generally ignored the learning space. Recently, I expressed disappointment in one of my vendors with a fellow board member. The board member asked me to walk in the shoes of the vendor. The corporate learning professional doesn’t have it much better.

These two vendors are EdCast and Degreed. Getting back to being unaware, I find the same issue with a few vendors in the learning system space who are really LXPs, but have no idea. It reminded me of the vendors in the space who scream they are not an LMS, even though they hit all the standards of an LMS. . The difference here though, is that those two vendors specifically, really had ZERO idea where they slid into. Trends in the LXP Space.

Year End Musings, Reflections, Predictions and Thoughts: Part One

Kapp Notes

Not sure if its the general state of the economy or the state of most e-learning courses or even the state of too-fast, too-much-to-do organizations but I’ve heard from many people that employees just don’t seem engaged or enthusiastic about work. I find this in the e-learning I review, it tends to be page turning boring stuff which is dis-engaged from the learning process. We tend to decontextualize learning. More non-engaging learning.

Docebo

Today’s enterprise learning strategies require smart solutions that go beyond the capabilities of traditional tools. A Learning Platform empowers L&D departments to drive business growth through their efforts, and a key pillar of this solution is the Learning Management System (LMS). To understand how a Learning Platform will help improve enterprise learning objectives, you must first grasp what an LMS is, why it’s an essential tool, and how to get the most out of it.

The hiccups were along the lines of slower than anticpated adoption of data visualization, and sluggishness of LRS too, which although I thought wouldn’t be fast, I was surprised how bad it really was from within an LMS. Regardless, if you want into the space, and are not seeking LMS route, I’d go here. What some folks will do, vendor wise, is tie-in the skills driven angle with their system itself or within the KRT.

People do not want traditional LMSs; they want streamlined learning platforms. Yes , there are plenty of folks who are seeking a learning platform or other subsets of LMSs, but when you look at the $$$, the LMSs as a whole are far outweighing learning platforms. . Just last week, I saw a feature from an LMS vendor that I surmise will a)change the industry, b) left me stunned in a great way. MOOCs and more importantly vendors, like Coursera, will lead the market.
