The end of the year is nearly upon us and with that, let’s take a look back for 2012 in e-learning
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.
When is a learning management system not a learning management system? When the vendor pitches themselves as something other than what they are, which is the next generation of a lite learning management system.
People love to espouse the view that learning management systems require x factors to survive going forward. They love to pitch survival within the confines of the modern business world. They also love to perpetuate myths that lack facts and data to support them.
The E-Learning Zombies have risen up in the past, with their genuine lack of interest to move forward. Thankfully that isn’t the norm, rather the rarity. As these trends are on the rise, the days of the Zombies could be gone. Or will it?
When we think of “on fire” it typically means something ablaze. For e-learning in 2013, I’m seeing a few features, tools, systems and capabilities that will be HOT.
When you think of course authoring tools the biggest names come to mind – Articulate, Captive and Lectora. But just because they are well known doesn’t mean that they don’t have faults.
The majority of consumers focus first on features, rather than UI. As such, having the right set of features is important, but I believe having the features that are unique, is what makes a system stand out.
The ASTD International Trade Show Expo wrapped up this week, and it had everything. From very cool products to higher interest in e-learning to great lead gen for vendors. However, it also struck out in numerous ways.
While many people assume that education as a whole is on the precipice, online learning is on the rise – for the better. The ones leading this charge are education focused learning management systems.
