LMSs, TMs and HCMs

eLearning 24-7

If you visit the Taleo home page, you will learn the following two items. I must have been sleeping, but when did “learning” slide under Talent Management?

In 2010, the RCAT market continued its upswing and nothing indicates to me it will be changing anytime soon.

An Analyst’s Perspective

eLearning 24-7

You may have read or seen such statements on various web sites or information on profiles in Linkedin, but not everyone knows what an analyst is, what role they play in the industry, how vendors see them (for the most part) and how as an analyst and/or analyst firm can provide information to enable consumers to make an informed decision.

Social Learning, Social Media – Brothers in Arms

eLearning 24-7

Is it me or does it seem that most vendors in the LMS/LCMS market still believe that with some smoke and mirrors, you won’t realize that social media actually must be integrated into social learning for it to exist? Or do they just drop the word, “social media&# , and rather say, “social learning and web 2.0″? See, it is social learning. is still being hyped in the market, as the upcoming Web 2.0 Social Learning & Social Media.

Are Innovation and Education a Perfect Couple or a Dangerous Match?

mLevel

The question: “Is all this innovation a good fit for educators and learning professionals alike… or a dangerous dance partner? ”. This doesn’t mean that they don’t want to embrace innovation or try new technologies and approaches to teaching, it just means that they are inherently more cautious than say your sales or marketing professional (who is willing to try anything to generate more leads or sales). The board member asked me to walk in the shoes of the vendor.

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. When see the template you are going to be like “this is a lot of features and categories, no vendor will complete all of this.” Vendors who gripe, clearly have never experienced a 10 page or more RFI/RFP (and high page RFPs are common). . Thus, if there is something you see in the Tier4 level, be aware that vendor may not have it. .

Reader Mail (Support, Rankings, etc.)

eLearning 24-7

Before diving into our semi-annual, readers question and answer, I’d like to talk about a subject near and dear to me – acquisitions. In the past few months, many of you probably have noticed a slight uptick in to the number of vendors who have been acquired either by another vendor in the market, or outside of the e-learning space or even a Private Equity firm. From my experience, vendors do have some options. There are some on the market.

E-Learning: A worldwide perspective

eLearning 24-7

A few days ago, I mentioned in my Linkedin group that I was reading the Himalayan Times which had an article about digital technologies and e-learning with education in Nepal.

Hungary – where I have seen reports that it made its debut in 2005, oh and solid in the corporate space. Case in point, vendors who are not based in the U.S.

What is an LXP and why do I want one?

eLearning 24-7

These two vendors are EdCast and Degreed. Are they the best ones in the market? Getting back to being unaware, I find the same issue with a few vendors in the learning system space who are really LXPs, but have no idea.

I’ve heard it from vendors. Many consumers, I surmise are doing it already without even realizing it, and even some vendors are too. The game changer in the industry, whereas every spoke is interconnected with the central component, the learning system.

Ponder This in your LMS and LXP

eLearning 24-7

Where are the markets heading? Buzz Words in the Learning System Space. The term coach in the business world is not the same as “coaching” in the learning system space. Skill-based learning.

But will they lead in market share? F5 – Machine Learning continues to explode.

Types of Learning Systems

eLearning 24-7

There is no better place to see this then our fine world of e-learning, which was devised to be an umbrella term for everything that is well, online learning. An LMS thus is under e-learning. e-learning. e-learning. Nowadays though, vendors have changed the message to mean e-learning as in e-learning courses and not an umbrella term. . On the learning system side, I see it all too well. Micro-learning platforms? Market Share.

Who really wins?
