Association Learning System Rankings

eLearning 24-7

The Association market is by far, IMO, one of the top three markets, that as a vendor, you should be in. However, a professional association may also allow companies to be members too, and sometimes, there are vendors who are members referred to in the industry as “associate members” (but the vernacular can be different). Thus, at the end of the day, your job is to convince the member committee that System X is the best system for the association.

Learning System Vendors Support Ratings

eLearning 24-7

And if you are like me, having outstanding support when it comes to your learning system should equally be of high importance. Yet in both cases, for the most part, the results on the part of learning systems in the past has been mixed. There has never been an accurate number of how many learning system vendors actually have a training department, let alone trainers who provide said training, or customer education. Vendors presented in blog.

Learning System Mkt. Forecasts

eLearning 24-7

In looking over the past 10 years of pricing data (that I have been tracking) when it comes to learning systems, there is a repetitive variable, ok,, variables at play. This line not only is continuing, but you can expect to see a lot more vendors reducing their price per seat/per year in the coming months. You are unlikely to see this in the setup fee (if a vendor charges), rather it will come in the form of seat pricing. If your system offers “classroom mgt.”

NexGen Learning Systems T-Grid 2019-20

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

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. Simply speaking the systems are becoming extremely similar, with only minor differences. 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). .

RFP 52

NexGen Tier2 Learning Systems

eLearning 24-7

A year ago I wrote about NexGen functionality in any learning system. The reason behind it was simply that so many vendors pitch they are NexGen (often referring to it as Next Generation), when in fact, they are not. This is to say, that any learning system vendor who tells you they are NexGen, should have Tier 1 functionality (in its entirety or at least 60% of it). If there was any learning system that screams going NexGen it is them. .
