It is an exciting time to be in the e-learning space, because what I am seeing and hearing in just the past six weeks shows promise for all involved. Yet, with all the good there is bad.
The world will not end of 12-21-2012, but for many e-learning vendors they are acting as though it was. They are holding back on making decisions that will only benefit their market share.
Too many authoring tool vendors are forgetting that you are the customer and not them. They ignore Mac OS, Windows 8, support and trials. They ignore the fact that people want to know pricing up front. They still believe it is 2000 and you will want to chat. Guess what? They are wrong.
