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. If you are seeking TM as your focus and you want one of the big dogs – I found Plateau’s system to offer appropriate functionality for it, but found some real concern in other areas (see my product review). The product is Flash based, which is nice, but lack of mobile optimization for the iPad.

No More Little Sandwiches

Tony Karrer

3) Our product places the sandwich in the corner of third-party-hosted images for free wikis as a general way of gently deterring people from using us as free image hosting. There were quite a few wikis that were using us to host very large images on MySpace a year or so ago.

Finalists were based on the quality of call on average (based on the number of times I was on a call with this tool – used by various vendors showing me their products or having a briefing, etc.). I guess MySpace was unavailable?
