Product Review: Mzinga OmniSocial

eLearning 24-7

Software simulation tool (Firefly) and Mzinga Publisher are extra, i.e. there is an additional cost – it is not automatically included in the OmniSocial product. It would be nice if Mzinga listed these two offerings with the wording of “additional or add-on cost&# on their web site. You can do this either through ILinc directly or through Mzinga. Mzinga does not offer any type of free trial with their system.

Communities / Social Networking and LMS Merger

Tony Karrer

I've not seen a lot about Mzinga in the eLearning world, but it represents something pretty interesting. Mzinga is a merger of KnowledgePlanet (an LMS provider and also the maker of the eLearning simulation tool - Firefly) and Shared Insights - a community / business social networking software company. The top execs at Mzinga are not the top execs from KnowledgePlanet. I wonder if mzinga does? Also, if you go to the solutions page , it doesn't mention Firefly.
