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. Why one RFP instead of specific ones for LXP and LMS?

Podcast 26: How to Extend Learning Content Availability – With Troy Gorostiza

Talented Learning

As we all know, SCORM has been around for quite a long time as a data standard. A standard is a standard, and for content to work, a learning management system must communicate with a piece of content in a very specific way.
