Corporate LMS Forecasts 2018

eLearning 24-7

I reviewed the numbers from 2016 for predications for 2017, and despite a couple of hiccups, still crossed over the 90% percentile once again. As I recall, it was 92-93%. The hiccups were along the lines of slower than anticpated adoption of data visualization, and sluggishness of LRS too, which although I thought wouldn’t be fast, I was surprised how bad it really was from within an LMS.

Top 10 Gamification Examples in Everyday Life


While many people are probably unable to define “gamification,” most have unknowingly experienced it – likely every single day.
