Replay free Extended Enterprise LMS Webinars by independent learning tech analysts at Talented Learning

EDITOR’S NOTE: These live webinars have ended, but free recordings are available by clicking the links in the listings below, or by signing up for unlimited access to all of our webinars in our Learning Center.


I’ve been researching the global LMS marketplace for over 15 years — first as an LMS sales guy for 13 years and now as the lead learning technology analyst at Talented Learning.  In the last 20 months, I have personally reviewed 92 LMS solutions and I have a whole list I’m trying to get to.

I’m not talking about a cursory website drive-by review either.  I spend a lot of time with each vendor and learn about their business and industry focus, customers, history and success stories before I ever take a look at the product.  In many cases, I even interview their customers about how they are using training and technology for their business.

For my paying day job, I help LMS buyers define what they really need and then help find the best LMS for them.

I’ve taken a good chunk of all that data, effort and experience and built it into Talented Learning’s fall webinar series.  We’ve created 5 new webinars on all things LMS and extended enterprise.  I think all are extremely interesting, engaging and insightful, but I could be biased.  We’re ending the series with the 1st Annual Talented Learning LMS Vendors Awards Ceremony.

I hope to see you at one or all!
