There are more vendors who do not offer the ability to post – i.e. add audio afterwards it is quite amazing. Again, simple and yet again arguably with many vendors difficult to do. There are dozens of free audio plugins available on the net, so why aren’t screen capturing/recording vendors offering the ability for the end user to add them? Another issue I have with many vendors who offer effects – again, I like that – is that they fail to mention.

While this has been happening for quite a few years now, my “greater increase” comes in terms of the analytical data that can be extracted from assessment results. This is not to say that every LMS can do this, nor does it say that what the end user sees is uber-robust, but on the back end the analytical data for many systems can be significant. Robust data analytics – which is ideal. Include some very basic analytical data.

Maybe you scored it via Wiley, but in many possibilities you purchased the content thru your LMS vendor. It’s much easier than say going directly to the content provider, buying it from them and then having them talk to your LMS vendor to put it in for you (which, honestly you should do, because it will save you money).

Don’t worry though, I have that feature in Reports/Analytics ( time tracking). This is something that is being seen with some LMS vendors actually, and it should be something with LEPs.
