Learning Solutions Series: Top 10 Learning Management Systems

InsiderHub

About half (51.9%) of the organizations surveyed in the 2014 Learning Technology Solutions Forecast Study (report available here ) own a learning management system , most often referred to as an “LMS.” A learning management system is the most popular online learning tool, and the one with which people are most familiar. In the study, internally-developed systems were the second-most popular solution owned.

Five classifications of Learning Management Systems (LMS)

Connect Thinking

There are lots and lots of Learning Management Systems (LMS) on the market. From my observation, I have categorised LMS based on the business motivation to create and offer them to the market: LMS that are part of a larger ERP system (e.g. These LMS appear almost an afterthought, an ‘add on’ to the massive database that ERP systems create. The purchase decision is often made by the people in charge of the ERP system itself.

LMSs (Saba, SumTotal, SkillPort, etc.)

LMS Satisfaction Features and Barriers

Tony Karrer

They are moving towards a broader suite that focuses on other aspects of Talent Management. However, I would be concerned if I was a starter LMS vendor because Moodle is going to cause you grief in the bottom of the market. SkillPort scores very high as well on satisfaction. Note: this represents a lot of the market whether they admit it or not. As these systems catch up, this will make the market really hard for Saba and SumTotal. Update, Nov.

Skillsoft buying SumTotal – My Take

The reason for the acquisition at least from a press release and information on the purchase (and available for viewing on the Skillsoft site), screams of HCM (Human Capital Management). HCM, among other things is all about HR (human resources), HRIS (human resources information systems) and the wherewithal of all that is part of it. As a former training director and manager, who often reported directly to the CEO or COO at various firms, HR and Training were separate entities.

This is a system that has a lot of potential, but still lacking a few key items in the areas of classroom management, compliance, gamification (no leaderboard), event management and so on. If you are willing to wait it out, until many of features I would find useful (and in many cases standard among the LMS space), then this is a system to explore. I place the system in my good to excellent category, simply because of its potential. Can the system be improved?
