Skillsoft buying SumTotal – My Take

eLearning 24-7

Like many of you, I was surprised to find out that Skillsoft is in the process of acquiring SumTotal. The reason for the acquisition at least from a press release and information on the purchase (and available for viewing on the Skillsoft site), screams of HCM (Human Capital Management). Combination of Skillsoft and SumTotal offers comprehensive, content-rich HR solutions. I am always bothered when vendors see the entities as one in the same.

How to Get What You Want from Vendors

CLO Magazine

Should technology malfunction or no longer serve its purpose, it would be seamlessly replaced with the help of an honest, easy-to-work-with vendor. In the process of purchasing learning technology from a vendor, learning leaders often forget to ask the most important questions.

So, We Talked to a Vendor About Learning Technology…

How important is it for vendors to listen to customers? It is absolutely critical and mutually beneficial for vendors and customers to develop an ongoing partnership — beyond sale and implementation. As a vendor, we can’t afford to guess what our customers need.

And yeah there are vendors who will taut that they are in X list or Y rankings and thus should be included. This isn’t a beauty contest, nor a pay for play (I NEVER accept that, nor play that game, nor do I accept any referral fees or whatever some vendors offer for recommending them). These are vendors who have been around a long time, build share of the market and generally speaking had early name recognition which has helped them in build business.

#HRTECH Learning Vendors Preview – Who to see and who to avoid

eLearning 24-7

Well, not yet, but it is coming up and with that are all those wonderful vendors and that magical expo. But one of the biggest problems I see at such shows are the number of vendors who in hindsight I wished I avoided. I recall at ATD this past year, a vendor who was trying to sell people ahead of time their LMS. And, because many of the other vendors who are here at HR Tech, really are just average to poor (but not everyone). SumTotal by Skillsoft.

Better yet, what does it mean to YOU when trying to find that LMS or LCMS vendor? Rather, I will focus on some questions you should ask or be asking your soon to be LMS/LCMS vendor. AICC was the only standard that offered a certification process for vendors and it was based on tasks/components testing. Very few vendors ever attempted the certification, and AICC did not offer all their components for certification. Okay, your top questions to ask a LMS/LCMS vendor.

How to choose the right LMS

eLearning 24-7

The minus: vendors come out of the woodwork to tell you their system meets those needs. No vendor could say honestly that their system is the best for you, because they are missing a lot of information. Write vendors’ names on pencils and throw them at the ceiling. Whichever sticks – is your vendor. There is no one size fits all vendor. There is “no one size fits all” LMS vendor. So many choices out there.

Five LMS Sins

As a vendor though, whether you are based in the states or going into the states (from another country), the price wars await you. Next thing you know, the other vendor retorts, “I can beat that” and just like that, as a vendor you are in a war. .

What I am hearing and seeing in E-Learning

It comes from me talking to vendors, buyers, monitoring the industry all the while taking notes and seeing the trends/patterns appear right before my eyes. What has always amazed me are number of e-learning vendor web sites whose design looks like it came from 1995 when Netscape ruled the land. I mean look at any other industry, any industry and check out their vendors’ web sites.

Customer Complaints, How to Avoid the Traps

eLearning 24-7

Sometimes it is a result of the vendor, other times it is a failure of due diligence on the part of the soon to be customer. The vendor’s salesperson tells you want you want to hear. I expect nothing less from the vendor. If the vendor offers a couple of solutions, not all of those clients are going to be using the same solution – so who is using the solution like me? At one time, vendors were honest, stating “white papers&# as marketing materials.

When is a LMS not a LMS?

eLearning 24-7

I should note that you cannot use any 3rd party vendor authoring tool to upload courses into these systems. Cannot upload off the shelf content from a 3rd party vendor – say Rosetta Stone or Skillsoft or in some cases e-learning marketplaces. Newbie trend – custom URL domain – irony: it is a trend that is being seen across the entire LMS space, with more and more vendors offering it at no charge.

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.

Manager Training Online Courses

I'm looking for vendors who supply off-the-shelf training for basic manager skills such as, time management and delegation. Thus far I've looked at Element K, SkillSoft, Vital Learning, Ninth House, and Achieve Global. Those vendors are certainly at the top of my list and I'm not sure I have other suggestions. I received an inquiry from someone I know, and I'm hoping people who read this blog can make suggestions.

E-Learning Innovative Products – They are Out There

When they hit stride, other vendors take notice and soon, the lemming revolution begins. Not, some 3rd party aggregator like Skillsoft or Element K, where you can purchase courses from. Nor, a LMS vendor who enable their customers to sell their courses, but only people who have the same LMS vendor can buy and use them. 2011 will show profitable gains for a large portion of vendors across the sector. Except maybe for the “Gerbil in the Wheel&# vendors.

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0

With the recent launch of InGenius by SkillSoft, I believe it’s time again to raise a pretty important question: Where do Social Learning Tools belong? My contention (as expressed in LMS and Social Learning ) is that most of the vendors are getting this wrong.

What you need 2 know: 3rd Party Content

eLearning 24-7

Nowadays thanks to the growth of Learning Engagement Platforms, whereas content is a requirement – an essential no less, LMS vendors are jumping head first into the content marketplace that is viewable by all clients (rather than pitching the content via the phone or other comm method). If you went directly to the 3rd party course provider, they would sell the courses to you, then work directly with your vendor to add them. LMS vendor identifies possible options.
