Learning Management Systems (LMS) - Never Ending Conversation

Two articles are trending right next to each other on eLearning Learning this week:

Over the past few years, I've been involved in many LMS Selection Processes.  It's good to see articles that are focusing more on getting more out of their LMS without switching to a different provider. Of course, there's still a lot about every LMS that leaves users uninspired, or even frustrated.

That leaves us with all sorts of conflicting advice around the LMS.  Craig Weiss in State of the eLearning Industry 2017 talks about rapid growth and expanding capabilities.  Meanwhile Ben Betts says what a lot of us feel: No Business Should Want a Learning Management System.

Clearly, the need to deliver and track eLearning is not going away.  Frankly, I'm squarely in Craig's camp.  The LMS is not going anywhere.  Learn to get more out of it.  And hopefully the tools will grow to include greater value without frustrating users.

If you are interested in the latest thinking and trends on Learning Management Systems, you should take a couple minutes to sign up on eLearning Learning and then personalize your subscription with LMS as a topic.  You'll get great articles from hundreds of sources (like the ones above) delivered to your inbox.
