• Open source is gaining ground as a foundation for business-oriented learning systems. What's driving this shift? And what does it mean for proprietary LMS platforms? Listen to The Talented Learning Show!

  • With a registration model, usage calculations can be based on any of several metrics:  how many users log into the LMS, register for an instructor-led class or webinar, buy content or earn a certification. 

  • Inexplicably, vendors make the most prose mistakes in these two areas of their proposals, yet these are the sections that every executive spends the most time reviewing.

  • One of the biggest mistakes LMS buyers make is not defining the level of help and support they will need to successfully implement and support their LMS.

  • It is foolish to pay more than you have to and get nothing in return but it is impossible to know if you are overpaying if you first don't define your LMS requirements. 

  • Associations, training companies, corporate channel, customer and other extended enterprise buyers can create any number – hundreds of thousands even – of active ongoing accounts but a buying organization only pays for active usage.

  • If you can’t define and predictively measure how the purchase of an LMS is going to help your organization make or save money – way more money than the cost of the LMS – you aren't ready to buy a system.

  • If you're spending time regularly deactivating users so you don’t have to pay incremental license fees, you are definitely paying too much for your learning platform.
