As many as 50% of the 240+ member organizations of Elliott Masie’s Learning CONSORTIUM are re-examining or re-bidding on a replacement for their current LMSes and LCMSes. So what’s driving companies like these to change to new learning management systems?
In case you missed his email last week, Elliott distributed his own e-learning module that explores the forces that are causing this “unusual spike” in the marketplace. The factors influencing this sea change are many — from dated systems that aren’t keeping up with changing technology and worldwide deployment requirements, to a shift in the way we’re all creating the content hosted and tracked in our LMSes.
Elliott says in one of the sections of his module, Changing Learning Systems: Forces & Disruptions:
“Content is changing. … We are evolving from using just formal types of training to ever increased production and distribution of informal content. For example, this very segment of e-learning is done in a very different format. It was done using a rapid development tool. It was done in half a day. And it was distributed rapidly to tens of thousands of individuals.“
The rapid development tool Elliott used? Articulate Engage, of course.
You can see this interaction in context on this page. And here’s some more info about it from Elliott’s email last week:
Why are so many organizations Leaving, Changing or Evolving their deployments of Learning Management Systems?
I have created a free, vendor-neutral 25 minute, on-line briefing module focused on these key changes impacting LMS and LCMS choices:
“Changing Learning Systems: Forces & Disruptions”
Changing Content Models
Changing Business Processes
Changing Learning & IT Models
This content is based on our research with our 240 member Learning CONSORTIUM. We are tracking a rate of more than 30% of corporations in LMS and LCMS “reconsideration”. This on-line module includes my audio comments on the key business drivers that are impacting LMS selection and change.
Finally, as Masie says in this module, “the LMS of yesterday will not necessarily be the LMS of tomorrow.” I couldn’t agree more.
So if you’re among the many organizations in the market for a new LMS and want something new, simple, and powerful — without the usual IT hurdles, implementation headaches, and publishing hassles — look no further than Articulate Online, which has set the new standard for the LMS of tomorrow.
