LMS: The Vendor Search

Your Training Edge

While you are looking at potential vendors, be sure to create an internal search committee. Be sure to explain to the group that the interview process should be like finding the right person for a job – and that there should not be a rush to conclude the search.

Conversation Searches

Tony Karrer

What are Conversation Searches? During those presentations, I'll mention what are sometimes called "vanity searches." These searches look for any mention of your name, company, URLs across blogs and other sites. For me, these searches primarily allow me to see what people are saying in response to something that I've put out there. So, I think of these searches as conversation searches, not vanity searches.

Six ideas in search of a problem to solve?

Kineo

​The elearning industry historically has had a habit of putting the cart before the horse. For years everyone was saying they wanted to talk about mobile – but there were no users willing or able to use mobile devices for learning. Gamification has also been talked about for a long time, without anybody even being clear what they mean by it, let alone being able to point to examples of it being used in a corporate learning context.

Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation. Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed. What this means is that I now get links to every post where the author includes my blog in their blog roll. This completely defeats my purpose.
