Low Cost LMSs – Yes, u can find one for under 10K

eLearning 24-7

The argument that you have to spend over 50K to find a sweet LMS is totally bogus. These are folks who are going to use your system. In my experience, small businesses (500 or less users) are the ideal audience for a low cost system. This does not mean that anyone who has more than 5,000 users should be a system in the low cost mode, but rather these systems are definitely suited to this business size. Are there low cost systems for the education market?

Voice-Over in eLearning

The Learning Circuits

Over the past couple of months, Dr. Joel Harband has been teaching me all about Using Text-to-Speech in eLearning. This has been a great way for me to learn about the topic. The comment was: Even the best Text-to-Speech can only do one thing - receive text and spit it back out. A good voice talent knows how and when to change up the tone or feel of a read when things are getting overly technical or have gone on a while.
