eLearning 24-7

Well, not yet, but it is coming up and with that are all those wonderful vendors and that magical expo. But one of the biggest problems I see at such shows are the number of vendors who in hindsight I wished I avoided.

And, because many of the other vendors who are here at HR Tech, really are just average to poor (but not everyone). Cornerstone OnDemand.

How many of you have seen vendors respond to your questions? A: Virtually every LMS vendor out there in the marketplace provides these features. Congrats, you are probably looking at less than 10 (based on my LMS directory which contains 475 vendors).

Trust me, you want one.

Act 2 – Select only a vendor who is well known (name recognized). What it does mean, is that the vendor is strong in marketing and getting their name out to the general public. Trust me when I say this, someone out there was the first to use Cornerstone OnDemand. If your LMS vendor does not offer it and you want it, go API. If you don’t have it as a vendor, you should. Hello, hello, hello! Come over and see the show.

But trust me when I tell you this, that it has no bearing on my thoughts of this year’s conference, because overall it was the best one ATD wise that is, I have ever been to. That said, there were some hiccups and from an entire vendor wise (expo here) angle, some unique and some, uh. This year, I estimated a 55/60% e-learning, including some ILT vendors offering some type of e-learning component. . Vendor Time – Vendor Time. Vendors of Intrigue.

LMS vendors had the option to create a video demo of their product without any sales pitch whatsoever. At last count, 25 vendors created such videos. 42 LMS Profiles – I know, you are saying wait he said 50 vendors but only 42 profiles. 9th will include the executive summary, a product review sample (actually a real one) and an example of one LMS vendor profile. But trust me, the report will go way beyond that. . Cornerstone OnDemand.
