We’ve been involved in a few projects in recent months with prospective customers who were in the market for buying a learning management system.
Now that they’ve all completed I thought I would write about why I think that buying a learning management system is such as bad idea.
Here are the reasons:
Ultimately you need to buy a complete solution – the LMS is important, but it’s the content, the tools, the capability around authoring that will make your e-learning strategy succeed or fail so you need to think through all of these elements before talking to anyone about procurement.
Incidentally, the ‘score card’ for the recent projects we’ve been involved in is:
As you can see, a lot of wasted time and money for everyone concerned. We recently changed our product portfolio to include our LMS in our core service offerings. We think this is better suited to what our customers need but do get in touch if you want to find out more.
Get started by telling us what you need and one of our team will be in touch very soon.
