More Puzzlers that LMS/LCMS vendors seem to have forgotten when it comes to the REAL WORLD! Operating Systems, Browsers and a Language.
LMS/LCMS vendors are now pitching mobile learning, social learning and everything you can imagine, yet they still are living in a time warp from the 1980’s when it comes to great service to the client/customer, true emerging technology and real time support.
While the rage in the m-learning industry is focusing on Smartphones, I believe the real player in the market will be the e-reader, which offers enormous possibilities and features that will truly incorporate the essence of e-learning.
You have decided on the LMS for your company and it is time to finalize, sign and go to the next phase. But before you sign, there are items you need to make sure are included in your contract, negotiated if need be, and things you need to know before you close the deal.
There may be times that you want customizations that are not included with your LMS/LCMS. When these are must haves, you will need to find out from the vendor if it can be done, what is the cost and how long.
