Across the board, a large number of vendors (from small to large) saw increases in their quarter numbers. Especially, when vendors released their 2010 final numbers and saw big increases from the previous year. One vendor is months behind their release schedule. Another vendor is suffering Q/A issues. Identify the problem, the vendor too.

Latest LMS Trends – The Truth is No Longer a Stranger

eLearning 24-7

In my latest directory, 393 LMS vendors – global, of which 34 or so are open source systems. In a market this size, and with so many vendors overly focused on the U.S. and not necessarily worldwide (which should be the case), there is bound to be those vendors who are seeking new opportunities. Folding up shop and switching to a new market: Talent/Performance Management, new product lines not tied to e-learning, services.

Sure, other vendors will say you can do that too, but you have to open each object file to get it. iTunes, iTunes University, Facebook, MySpace, CD, web server & more. SAAS or hosted on your own servers. Mashups, Google charts. Many vendors hyping PowerPoint to Flash angle as key feature. 57% offer a trial at various length, this is significantly higher than any other e-learning tool with over 40 vendors in the market.

eLearning 24-7

I’ve heard it from vendors. Many consumers, I surmise are doing it already without even realizing it, and even some vendors are too. In each case, push and pull exists, because even if it is content from a 3rd party provider, which in the Hub it is, the content is sitting on the content provider’s server, and not directly within your learning system.

The new article on a side note: focuses on emerging technology, but with a twist – something vendors in any e-learning space should be doing or exploring, but have not yet. You can host it on your server or on an outside server (can also be seen as a con). If you host on an outside server, many will install it ahead of time for you and have the experience in doing so. APIs and mashups – which is really can expand Moodle to the next level of learning.

Tony Karrer

Gmail for Domains ([link] ) and Yahoo Business Email ( [link] ) are serious competitors to the traditional email server franchise. In January, Salesforce.com introduced AppExchange ( [link] ), and already has more than 200 independent software vendors providing more than 300 different software as service applications.

LMS/LCMS Puzzlers

eLearning 24-7

Just some thoughts that puzzle me on why some LMS/LCMS vendors (okay over 98% of them) are still in some time warp from the Eighties when it comes time to enhance their services and technological solutions.
