Trials – Learning Systems

eLearning 24-7

The e-Learning industry as a whole are fans of trials, well, uh, most of the industry that is. Other e-learning tools? But the behemoth, the big elephant in the room, learning systems are not fans of trials. In the early 2000’s right up to about 2012, trials were common in the learning system market.
