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.
Interoperability is the golden premise in any SCORM LMS/LCMS system. However, if often fails to live up to its billing, and what you have instead is the necessary requirement of tweaking code or making tweaks in your off the shelf courses or 3rd party developer courses prior to uploading them/integrating them into your LMS/LCMS.
Let’s get right to the chase. You have a LCMS/LMS. You generate reports about your employees or customers or both
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.

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.
One of the little secrets that vendors often fail to tell customers is “LMS Maintenance”. Maintenance can cause all sorts of headaches for you, your employees/customers. Going offline, potential issues and scheduling can be challenges, unless you know ahead of time, what to do.
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.
When companies decide to move forward with a LMS/LCMS, they often fail to ask key questions on their infrastructure, their accessibility, security and how end users plan to use the system and access it. Questions need to be raised and answers need to be clarified before any such implementation.
