    In 2012, there was some excellent news that a new elearning standard was going to replace the clunky SCORM protocol from years earlier.

    Selecting an LMS for yourself or organization is not an easy task. In fact, the process can be so overwhelming that there are even companies that specialize in helping you to choose an LMS that is best for you (Capterra comes to mind).

    If you need to change the current behavior of an organization through education on new policies and practices, then you need to have a proven training strategy. These kind of training initiatives are always challenging. People generally don’t like change. Most would prefer to continue doing things the way they know how, so changing a procedure often […]

    Learning management is an important component to any online training program. If you choose a solution that isn’t right for your goals, the entire learning program suffers. There was once a time when organizations could get away with not using an LMS at all for their training. Those days have long passed as now learning […]

  • Why Infographics are Good for ELearning

    http://14434396.r.lightningbase-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/info-graphic-featured-image-628x353.jpg

    Graphics can often make or beak an online course. Rarely today do you see a course that doesn’t contain any relevant images – although I have unfortunately come across some. Luckily most elearning will make use of graphics, but sometimes they are not implemented properly. For example, you may come across pictures or graphics that don’t necessarily relate […]
