Trials – Learning Systems

eLearning 24-7

The e-Learning industry as a whole are fans of trials, well, uh, most of the industry that is. Other e-learning tools? But the behemoth, the big elephant in the room, learning systems are not fans of trials. In the early 2000’s right up to about 2012, trials were common in the learning system market. More people flooded into the market looking for a learning system, without knowledge about the space, and thus unaware of that occured in the past.

Types of Learning Systems

Based on some exploration, it is clear to me they have a couple of routes to go in terms of the system.

#29 to #11 Learning Systems for 2019

However, I always have to remember that plenty of systems do not go out and seek raising funds/receiving funds from Private Equity firms, VCs and alike. . As a survivor of the dot.com days, I have noted that we in the e-learning space are for all the sense of the approach back in the dot.com days from a mentality perspective.

An Analyst’s Perspective

And as an individual analyst, equally, if there is something wrong with the system or the vendor, it is noted on the blog, my newsletter, reports, etc. . My personal feeling is that there are no perfect systems out there. And again, there is no perfect system.
