Extended enterprise LMSs are the system of choice for organizations to train their prospects, customers and partners, but also for training companies, associations and any other entity that is selling content as a core business.
Employee learning platforms were created to support mandatory compliance training and talent development, and they must provide a learning experience that feels convenient, comfortable, personalized and trustworthy.
Corporations, associations, public institutions – as well as solopreneurs and subject matter experts who've never designed or delivered training in their lives – all are creating and selling online content at an unprecedented pace.
My best recommendation is to fully develop your business model, LMS use case scenarios and resulting requirements before engaging LMS vendors so you can find the best-qualified options to drive your online learning business.
The implementation team includes subject matter experts, project managers, learning technologists, project consultants, trainers, account executives, executive sponsors and data integration/migration specialists.
Individuals are ultimately responsible to know their own ongoing continuing education requirements, take the required training, maintain ongoing proof of completion and submit to appropriate accreditation body to maintain their license or certification.
