Tony Karrer

One of the more fun things we did in Boston was going out for a beer tasting that was organized by Jim Javenkoski, Learn.com and myself. I'm just returning from my trip to Boston (and NYC and Cape Cod - with my wife and kids). In Boston, I was at the eLearningGuild event and had the wonderful opportunity to speak at Harvard Business School (more on these sometime soon).

Dave is currently a bigwig at Learn.com. Are you an LMS naysayer? Do you have any idea what an LMS is actually capable of these days? Either way -- or whatever your LMS experience -- I heartily recommend this post from Dave Wilkins: " A Defense of the LMS (and a case for the future of Social Learning). It's a long read, but he makes it more enjoyable with swears. So, yes, he's got a bit of a bias, but he certainly knows his way around an LMS.

Questions to ask your LMS Vendor

It appears to be by Justyn Howard - Business Development at Learn.com. You know how I was saying Product Vendor Blogs - Where are They? Well I just ran across a good post: Questions You Should Be Asking Of Your Potential LMS Vendors, But Likely Are Not. It's a good post and some good ways to put questions because it forces some issues - like 3rd party relationships - to surface.

Taleo Firmly Establishes itself in the Learning Management Systems Market

7-Steps to Creating an Effective E-learning Program Part 1: Assessment

Your Training Edge

One way to see what content is being used and in what contexts is to go out to major Learning Management System vendors such as Learn.com or GeoLearning and ask for a free tour. Building an effective e-learning program is a seven-step process. The first step is to assess the current learning situation in three parts: content, learners, and systems.

The LMS Debate rides again

Clark Quinn

Yes, Dave Wilkins of Learn.com and Tom Stone of Element K have already argued that the label is still needed in the marketplace, but I’m really trying to shift the way people think about what their role is, and to me using the label LMS is a major barrier to shifting out of the comfort zone. Well, Saba called me out in an semi-anonymous (there’s a picture, but I don’t know who of, and there’s no name – in social media?)

Diversity in Blogosphere?

Tony Karrer

Still when we get together for Beer Tasting at ASTD TechKnowledge , Boston, Beer - Bloggers - Learn.com - it is definitely still feeling like a lot of middle age white guys. I've run into the question of how diverse the voices are in the blogosphere before. In Blogs vs Discussion Groups someone said that blogs - "felt so. old white guys club."

LMS: The Foundation of Your Training Initiative

Your Training Edge

There are numerous vendors out there, including Learn.com, CapitalLMS, GeoLearning, Registrar, Joomla, and Blackboard to name a few. In today’s environment, your learning and development department must be many things to many people. Managing that environment may have become difficult, but Learning Management Systems are making all facets of training management more efficient-and easier.

The Augmented LMS: New Life for Talent Management Learning?

Old-school LMS companies (like SumTotal , Plateau , Learn.com , GeoLearning and Certpoint ) were acquired by much larger talent and HR-suite providers like SAP/SuccessFactors , Infor , Oracle and IBM. When we started Talented Learning nearly four years ago, our mission was to help clients find and use learning management systems that effectively support extended enterprise education.

Latest Negative E-Learning Trends

Otherwise, they will follow the route of Learn.com. Learn.com started as a course aggregator. Trends. They will often bare fruit. Sometimes is a way we like, other times in a way we don’t. Who can forget the trend of seeing Ned Beatty in every movie out there? He was soon replaced by Morgan Freeman. And Morgan now is being replaced by Anthony Hopkins. That is a trend, I wish to no longer see.

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.
