Latest Takeaways from Craig Weiss

eLearning 24-7

I would hope they would think about their attendees more than the revenue. . Think of how many employees who are in industries where automation is either taking over or impacting at a higher level than in the past, and will need to be re-trained with new skills. In the association market, D2L (also on FindAnLMS) continues to lead the pack, but others including Thinking Cap are worth consideration.

Thinking Worlds - offers a free version (lame) and a commercial version (better) – create sims and 3D games publish to iPad (have to purchase the TW Pro + iOS edition), very slick.

Welcome, welcome, welcome. Helping me with today’s post is Voodoo, who is sitting, looking out the window, Spirit who is snoozing by me, and Cali, who is somewhere, no doubt exploring how to dig holes and chase squirrels. Yes, a very eventful day.

If you think to yourself, well, the folks who ended up at X rank in his Top 50, will automatically win, I’d say, that isn’t always the case. And they are not in any order, so do not think they are ranked in seed order. Schoox, Blackboard for Corporate, CD2 Learning, Tessello, Eurekos, Skilljar, Thinking Cap, Fuse Universal, Rehearsal VRP, Spoke, Minds-I, Intellium.

Cathy Moore – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

Learnnovators

How do you think existing learning models need to evolve to support these workplace learning preferences? Cathy: I actually don’t think these are new challenges. I think adults have always preferred to figure it out for themselves rather than sit through a day of instruction. I think the ability of people to solve their own problems has increased dramatically with the internet, and instructional designers need to go with that flow.

And the LMS selection winner is…

eLearning Development

In that case I probably would have went with Thinking Cap or SyberWorks. After over a year of looking and talking with several LMS vendors, I finally chose an LMS - ClickCourse from Rapid Intake. My requirements were pretty simple with cost at the top of the list. I wanted something that could track courses reliably, integrate with our existing customer extranet, generate basic reports, and be relatively easy to use. ClickCourse met those criteria at the best price.

Low Cost LMSs – Yes, u can find one for under 10K

eLearning 24-7

But please be aware that as a whole, you are talking about a very clean interface without not a lot of “pop” and “sizzle” When I think low cost, I think streamlined which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you think your 3K system is going to match the look and feel of a top notch 45K system, be prepared to be massively disappointed. The argument that you have to spend over 50K to find a sweet LMS is totally bogus.

Award for all awards

eLearning 24-7

I huge kudos to Thinking Cap, who has a wonderful list of organizations that hand out awards. The breakouts I think make sense, since it a system that is “Lite” typically does not have the same feature set as a standard system. Everyone likes to win awards. They are great to announce to your fellow competitors, general public and potential customers.

OEB15 Review

eLearning 24-7

Thinking Cap was in attendance. I think you can see a trend here and it screams usability. Notebook, Scrapbook, Dictionary – I admit not sure a HE student, let alone an adult would want to use “Scrapbook” The notebook shows each mission (think learning path), among other items. I still think though that assessment tools like Questionmark may not be as useful in say 10 years. Welcome wherever you are!
