Learning Systems RFP and Tier4 NexGen

eLearning 24-7

I note this, because this post covers my new Learning Systems RFP Template , which includes the latest NexGen Tier 4 feature sets. Why one RFP instead of specific ones for LXP and LMS?

EXTRA!

Also on the administrative side, SCORM, AICC, xAPI, videos, digital documents, virtual classrooms, and instructor-led training (ILT) can be managed in one or more catalogs you can create — for internal or external audiences.

This isn’t highly automated and is not ideal if your organization relies heavily on ILT.

Types of Learning Systems

A training management system leverages heavily with scheduling of training whether it is ILT (a huge piece) or online. My LMS RFP (also covers learning platforms) is a perfect way to do a comparison, when you match it up to the LXP one. . Let me ask you an honest question. What is your personality type? Are you a Type A? Maybe a Type B? I was once told by a CEO, that I was a Type A ultra even more so then her. I felt honored. I should have asked for a raise. .

Inability to have course be non-linear when live; it stays linear (another typical ILT feature), hint: WBT’s power is non-linear.
