I Need an LMS. Where Do I Start?

Experiencing eLearning

If you’re just starting the process of selecting and implementing a new Learning Management System (LMS), the process can feel a little overwhelming. This is especially true for organizations who don’t currently have an LMS and are starting completely from scratch. I often see organizations struggle to even identify what questions they should be asking. They “don’t know what they don’t know.”


NOT Learning Engineering

Clark Quinn

I recently wrote about two different interpretations of the term ‘learning engineering’ So when I saw another article on the topic, I was keen to read it. Except, after reading it, I thought what it was talking about was not learning engineering, or, at least, not all of it. So what do I mean? I think this article goes wrong right from the title: Learning Engineering Is Learning About Learning. We Need That Now More Than Ever. And I’m a big fan of learning about learning!

Is This a Problem with E-Learning Today?

Rapid eLearning

I ran across two articles recently that made me wonder about the state of today’s e-learning courses. The first article was on how websites are all starting to look the same. They did a study to confirm it. In the second article, the author makes some good points on how a lot of this new design is sterile and lacks personality. While the two articles dealt with website design, there are a lot of parallels to e-learning course design. Why Does Everything Look the Same?

How Learning in the Flow of Work Can Help Remote Workers
