There continues to be a lot of disinformation out there when it comes to learning management systems. Hopefully this article will clear up a few things.
Sixth months are nearly gone and with that comes a few LMS trends I am seeing in the space.
Finding and selecting the right LMS can be a painful and time consuming process. Yet, by following a few simple steps, you will drastically cut your time and still find the perfect system for you.
GeoLearning GeoMaestro is a good LMS with lots of great features with ease of use being a key. The solution takes learning to the next level, but its choice to have a minimal social learning platform is baffling.
Social media continues to grow and expand on a constant rate. As a result, new opportunities and features are possible to incorporate in social learning, regardless of the platform – LMS/LCMS, standalone, learning community, portal, etc.
One of the main reasons people purchase a LMS is for data and yet very few people ever ask questions regarding data uploads, time or format. Worse, they purchase a system, only to find out later that as a result of failing to ask the right questions, they are stuck with a system that is only causing them heartaches rather than joy.
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.
