eLearning 24-7

Bewildered on what is happening, why what is needed isn’t appearing as it should, and how is it possible that something so obvious based on where e-learning is heading, mobile is pushing and future tech is inspiring is lost among so many vendors? Confusion leads to flushed in terms of causation that some vendors in their infinite wisdom have decided it is better to jump one way than stay the course. I know of one vendor who has a review checker and it works quite well.

Product Review: GeoLearning GeoMaestro

eLearning 24-7

Offers Lectora (rapid content authoring tool) as a separate option which can integrate with GeoMaestro. Social Learning standard features – Lame. Social Learning add on module – Not a lot for what you get at an additional cost. It is truly amazing on how vendors seem to think lots of stuff on the page, is the way to go and navigation is just a requirement. Why vendors still think this is not needed or used, makes no sense. Social Learning.

Times are changing – trends in the content authoring tool market

eLearning 24-7

You work online via the servers of your vendor. I had thought that this trend would be dying out, but it is amazing at the number of vendors who are entering the space and still focused on the desktop approach. Despite the overwhelmingly number of vendors who have a “desktop only&# solution, based on what I am seeing- a result of new feature sets – this will change. It has blown past social learning, and continues to roll. Vendors to Watch.

Product Review: Plateau TMS (Talent Management System)

eLearning 24-7

This is Plateau’s social learning component, and it reminds me of a cross between a COP (Community of Practice) with some social learning functionality. Social learning is based on incorporating social media types (whatever you choose) and e-learning. Too many vendors (inc. Plateau) see social networking as a wiki, blog, profiles, a bit of communities and RSS feed. Some purists see mashups as another social media type.

Perception in the E-Learning World

eLearning 24-7

Often self-inflicted by the vendor themselves, it nevertheless continues rampant. Vendors use the term as a term itself, calling content within their learning systems as e-learning, to differentiate from classroom training (i.e. When a vendor calls themselves an authoring tool, consumers looking for an authoring tool, knows what that means. Simulations is all over the board in authoring tools, with some vendors showing it in a better way to do it, others in an awful way.
