Trainer Elearning Software

eLearning software will probably never replace certified trainers. At least, not entirely. The intelligent instructors who craft content, teach lessons, guide student learning paths and distribute tests that overview industry specific procedures and protocols can never be fully replaced by eLearning software. However, using eLearning platforms like learning management systems (LMSs) may help them streamline many training tasks and advance their influence. Trainers like eLearning… and Learners do too! One reason why trainers gravitate towards eLearning software rather than training in physical settings is because LMSs host collaborative learning environments and simplify many training tasks. Similarly, trainers make it possible for learners to engage and operate learning management systems, which can ultimately accelerate their learning experiences by putting state-of-the-art learning … Continue Reading »

Save LMS

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) learning management systems (LMSs) are quickly becoming the norm in corporate environments. Not long ago, many large businesses relied on clunky hardware programs to provide their online training and host corporate databases.

With all the benefits hosted LMSs offer big businesses, it’s amazing to think that any corporation would turn away such powerful, user-friendly systems. Unfortunately, some corporations refuse to adopt these remotely hosted eLearning platforms because exorbitant LMS fees are too much to absorb. When per-user-fees are attached to a hosted, SaaS LMS, the system’s benefits are quickly overshadowed by the looming cost of hosting thousands of employees. … Continue Reading »

What’s in a name? As it turns out, there is more to a name then we could have ever imagined. Branding is an important element of business success. However, branding goes beyond picking a descriptive, catchy business name. It also involves visual components like color and logo design. Businesses seem to understand that effective branding is one of the best ways to attract consumers and gain repeat customers.
