ASTD International Conference Day 1 Wrap-Up

eLearning 24-7

It was an exciting first day, with lots of vendors hitting the entire training spectrum. Here are my favorites: Numerous vendors were unhappy that they had to pay $700 a day for Wi-Fi, that didn’t work most of the time or was slow. One vendor who spent $5,000 on their booth, thought the $700 a day fee was obscene and declined. Other vendors weren’t so lucky. This year there are more e-learning vendors than in the past.

Who’s The Best: Learning System Tourney

eLearning 24-7

Besides my Top 50, I’ve toyed with the idea of having a tourney of learning systems. While there are plenty of vendors who cross over into all sections, I placed them into one specific segment of the learning system space. If you are a vendor and post yourselves, it won’t be considered. But I surmise, that as a whole, the reader will click the link to the vendor to see where it takes them.

Finally! No MORE LMS Secrets

M-Learning – Unless vendor specifies it only means that you can view their platform via a mobile device (browser). Gamification – Gaming elements used online. Does not mean games nor the ILT approach of gamification. Vendors get it. A vendor who does “no contract” ever well, that is sometimes a ploy, so pay attention. They (vendor) knows the likelihood that you will bolt after one year is quite low. Finally.

This brings me back to this post, because learning what features are in “vogue” and what is on the mind of many vendors, is fun to know.

True, you could do this with a few vendors, but now you can do with it with many, many more. There are vendors who have several widget options, others have a much larger list and yep, many have zero.
