CommLab India

If you have decided to buy your e-learning course or outsource it to a customized e-learning solutions provider, the next step is to choose a reliable e-learning vendor. Ask for 3 or 4 references similar to your profile from the vendor.

Working with E-Learning Vendors: The RFP

E-learning Uncovered

The RFI and RFP are the two primary tools you can use to select which vendor from a group is the best one to meet your needs. RFPs are formal documents written to vendors that specifically list what you want and help the vendor provide a specific, binding proposal. They can help you make apples-to-apples comparisons of possible vendors. Since an RFP asks for a specific, binding proposal you will want to give enough detail so the vendor can respond accurately.

2010 LMS Products of the Year

eLearning 24-7

LMS Products of the Year 2010. A lot of great products out there this year, new updates and latest versions; new companies, new services and just some real innovation. I include Learning Portals, LCMSs, as part of the mix. Extended Enterprise – System must have e-comm, multi-tenet – fully skinnable, additional functionality. I like this system and its functionality in comparison to the other players in this space. Social Learning is limited.

However, they often do not realize – until it is too late, that “free” isn’t really free because customization has to constantly exist, support, among other things. Mobile Learning. Because students are already using such products in their daily lives.

Articulate, Captivate and Lectora – Do they deserve your praise?

What I found was an extensive group of people hungry for anything e-learning. Hungry to learn as much as they could and hungry to see what was in the space. My sense of it all, was that regardless of the location the buzz is all e-learning. I wasn’t surprised on the e-learning excitement. When people think authoring tools, three products typically come to mind. It is easy to use and once you learn it, easy to push out content.

LMS Vendors: U Can Survive – Innovate, Invigorate and Invent

It was within these comments, that afterwords, I decided to expand a bit plus identify other areas that I see, LMS vendors must explore – which they have not yet done so, to re-energize themselves. Thus, the LMS vendors are creating a Bogeyman – their own bogeyman, and it does not have to be that way. Majority of employees access a LMS or Learning Portal out of the workplace. Far too many LMS vendors are stuck in a rut. Social Learning.

Something is Going on Down there in the LMS Market

LMS Vendors and Tablets Update. That said, why is this happening: A significant (over 90%) of vendors are holding off this year and at least part of next year from optimizing their solution to the iPad. When you hear the term “browser agnostic&# , what this means is that the product or solution will work on any browser. But with LMS vendors jumping into the mobile learning sector, at least in some cases, it may be a tad misleading, especially with smartphones.

Video and LMSs – Why changes will need to be made in 2014

With 2014 already in play, it is time for many LMS vendors to awaken by the trumpets playing the background – you might think it is Muzak, but no it’s trumpets. These fine tunes of blasting noise are telling each and every one of them, to get off the bench or out of their seats, run on over to product development team and say, “Add these video features or off with your head” As a bonus they get tossed into the Tower and are fed gruel.

Here is my report from World of Learning Conference (where I was presenting in Birmingham, UK). World of Learning Conference continues to deliver winning results. Why LMS vendors and authoring tool ones for that matter, do not come in droves to this conference is mystifying to me. . Each time I attend there are a lot of decision makers rumbling around seeking out vendors, wanting to start communication and scheduling demos, meetings, etc. And authoring tool vendors?
