LMS Innovation: Where’s the Value?

Talented Learning

3) You speak often about the “true cloud” LMS. “ Cloud ” means different things to different people. In my opinion, “true cloud” means an LMS is a multi-tenant platform with a core code base and every one of their customers uses that version of the LMS simultaneously. This contrasts with what many vendors call a cloud LMS. This is very different from a “true cloud” multi-tenant system.

SAAS (Hosted) LMS and Vendor Questions

Plus, what does being in the cloud actually mean? The bottom line without getting technical or overly detailed, the solution is hosted on your vendor’s servers and not hosted on your internal servers. So in the case of a LMS/LCMS, it is hosted on your vendor’s servers and can be accessed anywhere there is an internet connection and a browser (that they support), anywhere in the world. Benefits versus having it on my servers (behind my firewall).

Cloud service and deployment models

Janet Clarey

One of my 15 fans asks, “Janet what the heck is cloud computing, when should I consider a cloud service model and when should I not?&# And, to which I responded…let’s try to break that down a bit… First, let me point to some existing definitions cloud computing. Clouds, if nothing else, are ‘fuzzy.’ ’ Cloud Service Models. Another service model is Cloud Platform as a Service&# (PaaS). Public cloud.

4 Key Emerging Trends in LMS

Upside Learning

Gone are the days when having your own staff running your own servers behind your own firewall provided a sense of security and control. Cloud computing is emerging as an inexpensive, quick and efficient way of delivering training through LMS. Could-based LMSs have the capacity to bring down your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), something that has being largely overlooked during LMS vendor comparisons.

When Does Your Training Need To Go On A Private Cloud?

Of course, there still are (and always will be) some PCs somewhere doing all the serving and number crunching, but they are not in the corporate data center anymore, they are in the Cloud. The Cloud, explained. The Cloud , in case you have been living under a rock for the past few years, refers to processing and storage run by specialized companies on their own networks, that is available for businesses to sign up for and leverage for their own needs.

Top 9 e-Learning Predictions for 2014

Learnnovators

Cloud Computing. Opening up of learning content that is presently locked up behind firewalls or LMSs to enable access to learners for just-in-time learning or performance support. More tools offering cloud-based authoring options. More vendors, developers, and organizations embracing Tin Can in their learning designs, and extending its power to Talent Analytics and other broader parts of the enterprise.

Software as a Service SaaS Implications for the IT Security Workforce

Training Industry

My last blog described the implications of cloud computing going mainstream and its impact on the workforce. In this case, it is likely that sensitive data will be stored and controlled by the SaaS provider and used by an organization’s customers or partners so that the data never comes in contact with the organization’s network, firewalls, or any other security device or process controlled by the organization.

Association Learning Systems: Why and How to Invest in a Specialized LMS

Talented Learning

But with the rise of high-speed internet connections, cloud computing, mobile devices, video compression and other recent innovations, online learning has become the norm. When planning for a new or updated LMS, it pays to assess your needs thoroughly before contacting vendors. Rather, it must integrate with other functional and business systems, as well as other tools and resources that “live” inside and outside of your organization’s firewall.

Tom Kuhlmann – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

Learnnovators

I’m sure that there will be some vendors who’ll sell “gamification” as a feature. Does a person looking at a smart phone have the same expectation of training and experience as the person looking at a tablet or large screened computer? Tom: Most vendors have embraced accessible development. In many organizations the courses are locked behind firewalls or LMS and the learner has limited access to them. Where do you see Articulate in the cloud computing scenario?

2010: mLearning Year in Review

mLearning Trends

Traditional "e"-learning vendors will all jump into the "m"-learning and social networking spaces with "first generation" offerings they believe will address the mobile requirements of their customers and prospects; these early efforts will prove largely ineffective as evidenced by their many iterative and incremental updates, retries and course corrections. Others vendors will quickly follow/respond. A.K.A. How our January 2010 Predictions Played Out!
