Four Ways to Keep Education Alive and Profitable

Data are hard to come by, but we know that apprenticeship programs have largely disappeared, along with management-training programs. The cost of learning is shared with the employee. I imagine that a better question to ask than “What education programs do we cut?”

Lower cost and the locations of their personnel and other clients. If I have those skill sets, why would I want to be an administrator of a LMS, when I could work free-lance or in some other programming capacity? Anything that reduces calls into a company’s tech support (and thus lower the costs for that vendor’s customer support) will be incorportad. Forecast : Strong growth and increased costs to the company who purchases these solutions. Data costs.

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

eLearning 24-7

We are sick of the RSS feed and then super lame YouTube links. Costs, have to be placed equally into consideration. But, besides Africa and a few other areas in the world, where the components of infrastructure and cost play key roles, LMS vendors seem to be lagging on the other mobile device opportunities. Again, open source programs exist today that you can use as a feature within your LMS.

APIs and Mashups r ur new ABCs for E-Learning

eLearning 24-7

An API (Application Program Interface) enables an interface from a piece of software to communicate with another piece of software (in its simplest form) or multiple pieces of software (called a mashup). APIs available in popular programs – SAAS. And then ask them if there is a cost for integrating APIs. Trust me, they will find other ways to recoup the alleged cost.

Product Review: GeoLearning GeoMaestro

eLearning 24-7

API (Application Program Interface) capability. Additional cost for Training/Support – package based (Common in the industry, but enough already). Social Learning add on module – Not a lot for what you get at an additional cost. The downside of using this, is it will require someone with programming skills to work with GeoLearning to make it a go (again, common). GeoLearning offers the creation feature for you, for an additional cost.

E-Learning Early Indicators

eLearning 24-7

If they were doing it, Facebook like page, a crummy blog that looks nothing like a real blog, a Twitter like feed, maybe RSS, text chat and YouTube functions and upload/download angle. I’m glad to report that Litmos, a Lite LMS vendor, has dropped any additional cost for more storage, if you go over your included storage. Very few vendors have an immediate multi-lingual functionality, so with one pull down click, the program will switch to another language.
