August Big Question - Feedback

eLearning Cyclops

The Learning Circuits' Big Question for August is to provide feedback on the "Big Question" itself. I have a high opinion of it and have always enjoyed reflecting on the questions posed and reading the responses posted. One of the goals of the Big Question is to "Get different perspectives on topics that are of interest to workplace learning professionals." I feel the Big Question achieves that goal.

One of the most important questions is: What's the added value provided by content providers over alternative information sources?

Let me ask you an honest question. Nowadays though, vendors have changed the message to mean e-learning as in e-learning courses and not an umbrella term. . ” One vendor recently told me they were not a “Soviet Era LMS” Another told me LMSs were dead (not even close).
