Product Review: Saba Social

eLearning 24-7

I admit that in general I have been underwhelmed in the past with Saba. So, when I went and checked out Saba Social, Saba’s new social learning platform, I had very low expectations. Upon entering Saba Social you are presented with an visually solid home screen.

Articulate Quizmaker and Saba

Learning Developments

I'm working with the Saba LMS for this project. Quizmaker is not alone, I've had this issue with other content I've used in Saba. Open up the file in your favorite editor and look for the following line: var EXIT_BEHAVIOR = "SCORM_RECOMMENDED"; To make the Quizmaker window close correctly and completely in Saba, I had to change it to: var EXIT_BEHAVIOR = "ALWAYS_CLOSE_TOP"; Once you make this change in the Articulate folder, the next time you publish to SCORM 1.2,

Saba Player Templates and Best Practices

Learning Developments

The question is “what is the best way to create a video based training course in Saba?” Use a player template in saba that will serve as the table of contents for the course. In Saba I do not have the ability to specify the size of a SCO window that is “popped up” from the table of contents. So in Saba I am only loading the SCO, when the SCO is loaded, the video window pops up based on the code I wrote using Lectora. Lectora Video Saba LMS SCORM SCO

Special Post – Why the Big Four are not on my latest Top 10 LMS List

Since my Top 10 list of LMS vendors has been posted online, I have received quite a bit of e-mail wondering why the biggest names: Cornerstone On Demand, Saba, SumTotal and SuccessFactors are not on the list. “While the pricing is outrageous and the Saba as a whole seems better suited as a HCM, their learning suite is a better alternative than those who want Cornerstone OnDemand.” I have some real concerns on what is taking place with Saba today.

According to cloud-based talent management solutions provider Saba, U.S. Saba’s October 2016 survey suggests there’s a decent chance a company’s workforce engagement is suffering due at least in part to inadequate employee feedback channels.

While I place Saba in the average spot, I do think Learning@Work is heading in the right direction (cloud based platform). . I love the deep learning component where courses are recommended based on a set of variables – which for Saba is courses/content taken or completed, skills and profiles. . If I was to compare the Big Dog Four – SuccessFactors, Saba, Cornerstone OnDemand and SumTotal by Skillsoft, Saba would win hands down. Welcome, welcome all!

Can the ‘big LMS’ break clear of formal training?

Clive on Learning

I must confess it is now four months since I received an in-depth demonstration from the people at Saba of their People Systems Suites. First off, it’s worth noting that Saba does not seem to have been suffering like so many of its competitors through the downturn: It gained 113 new customers in 2010, which was a record year. So what are Saba up to with their latest software? to provide embedded functionality such as providing instant feedback (‘Saba Impressions’).
