Podcast 23: Open Source LMS Advantages – With Lars Hyland of Totara

Talented Learning

So, with an open source LMS model, instead of paying license fees, that same budget pays for professional services to develop a unique experience, tailored to an organization’s specific needs? So over time, with this kind of open, collaborative model in the cloud, total cost of ownership becomes a very good value. It can be set-up in a cloud or on-premise – wherever you wish. WELCOME TO EPISODE 23 OF THE TALENTED LEARNING SHOW!

With Cloud computing gaining a major foothold in the enterprise, millions of corporate employees are seeing the legacy intranet apps they’ve used for decades getting replaced with shiny new SaaS applications. John: Well, it’s one of those Cloud apps — and they didn’t want to go with a Cloud product. So he says those Cloud apps are as secure as regular apps? What else is good about those Cloud apps? Seems to be Cloud-based too.

Moving Microlearning to the Cloud

Ed App

A cloud-based system organizes learners to work as a team and customizes microlearning content to meet the personal demands in real-time. The advantage of MOOC is that the course may be open to anyone who can take the course online, but the content of the course may or may not have an open license. The need for cloud-based service has arisen owing to the rapid development and distribution of learning resources. This is where cloud computing helps.

Having your head in the clouds now holds a whole new meaning with the development of cloud-based technology. For that reason, cloud computing is a rapid growth area of the IT sector, with Web 3.0 supporting a new wave of applications able to run on a variety of hardware devices, while data storage remains inside the cloud. So is cloud-based technology a positive or negative for the e-learning industry?

What is SaaS LMS? Everything You Need to Know

ProProfs

Cloud-based LMS platforms are leading the way in providing solutions to today’s fast-paced learning & development (L&D) environment. SaaS LMS is defined as a method of software delivery and licensing in which software is accessed online via a subscription, rather than bought and installed on individual computers. For instance, ProProfs Training Maker is a SaaS LMS based on the cloud. Software is a great combination between artistry and engineering.

Got LMS Implementation Questions? Ask a Learning Tech Analyst

Talented Learning

LMS implementation is generally much faster, cheaper and easier than it was a decade ago, thanks largely to the massive shift toward cloud-based applications. That’s because the LMS landscape has mushroomed to more than 1000 systems in recent years (also thanks to the rise of cloud computing). Others provide solid implementation services, but they don’t charge much because the value of long-term license revenue is more important to them.

When or When Not to Use Open Source LMS?

Assuming that open source LMS matches your objectives and organizational structure, then yes, if you have small to medium sized implementation then certainly open source LMS’s (even if moderately customized) are much more cost effective compared to licensed proprietary systems.
