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?
During the past 14.5 years, I have seen firsthand what works, what doesn’t and what is really going on behind
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.
Rapid Course Authoring Tools have grown in the past few years, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t products for the developers. They just have to dig deeper. The problem is that some tools are trying to hit both markets and guess what, they are failing.
The K-12 education learning management systems are starting to understand the needs of the teachers and their students. While some systems are in the failing mark, there are a few who truly deserve an A.
It is time to stand up and shout it from the rooftops – “I’m mad as…” and let some vendors know that the days of treating the customer as secondary, bugs as a way of life and setup fees as the next Fort Knox is over with – now and forever.
The latest LMS directory is here and my top Extended Enterprise Systems rankings for the month of August.
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 days of spending over 50K for a nice LMS is a thing of the past. Today solid systems can be found for less than 10K but you will need to make some sacrifices. Most often in robustness of features and a more streamlined approach.
