4 Key Emerging Trends in LMS

Upside Learning

Today, after the rapid evolution of the LMS – hastened by several factors, right from the inclusion of social learning tools, to an ever increasing need for usability – many things have changed, and still continue to change, in the LMS.

Associations: Solving the Skills Gap with Digital Credentials

WBT Systems

Before the rise of social media and cloud computing, associations competed to attract new members — but only in a subtle “non-profit” sort of way.
