In May, I partnered with a continuing education organization to offer a class on how to select a learning technology platform. The session was great in the sense that attendees received continuing education credits – but you had to pay for the class. So I’m teaching it again for free on Thursday, October 11th at 12PM EDT.
The session will be hosted by eLearning Industry and sponsored by Adobe.
The description is below:
Has your organization asked you to select a new learning technology platform or learning management system? Are you feeling overwhelmed?
You aren’t alone. Many learning professionals are asked to evaluate and purchase learning technology, and few of us have the background necessary to handle those tasks. After all, there are several hundred learning technology platforms on the market! Many companies simply choose a vendor that offers a lot of features – and then hope for the best.
The result? You could end up overpaying for features that your organization doesn’t need. Even worse, you may find yourself stuck with a platform that lacks the key functionalities you do need in order to engage learners and manage your learning and development program.
This webinar gives you two “selection processes” to choose from. Either process will help you identify a vendor that suits your organization’s continuing education needs. You can choose the approach that works better for your organization.
You don’t need a fancy LMS consultant or an expensive report to find your learning technology platform. This webinar contains the information you need to do it yourself. After all, there is no one who understands your organization’s needs as well as you do.
In this 60-minute webinar, Katrina Marie Baker will explain how to select the perfect LMS, including how to:
- Evaluate your organization’s current and future needs relative to an LMS
- Decide on your top priorities for an LMS
- Assemble a Request for Proposal (RFP) that you can provide to prospective vendors in order to create a functional comparison
- Assess multiple vendors fairly and equally to determine which will best serve your organization
