Composing a Moodle RFP can be a daunting task—with so many vendors in the market, where do you begin? To make things a little easier, we have compiled some quick tips to get you started. These are designed to help you build a foundation for creating your RFP.
LMS Reporting for open source learning is one of the top pain points among Moodle and Totara users. Moodle reporting needs are often complex, and they only increase over time (as programs grow, and organizations expand). Unfortunately, many of the LMS reporting and analytics solutions that are available simply do not have the capacity to provide what users need. This can make shopping for a LMS reporting solution a lengthy process, with limited success. We have compiled an easy checklist to help you select a robust solution, perfect for your LMS reporting needs.
We also held a webinar on Selecting the Right LMS Reporting Tool for your learning management system, where we go over some tips for the evaluation process.
The iceberg analogy is one we use often when discussing implementations. Buyers spend a great deal of time looking for the LMS features that they want, but rarely stop to think about the aspects under the surface - like training, or support. These “hidden” aspects are important to consider, and to know upfront when assessing a potential LMS, because they give you an understanding of where your money is going.
How would you go about completely transforming the world of education as we know it, by (literally, and figuratively) tearing down classroom walls, encouraging educators to quit the in-class lecture-style teaching methods they're used to, and have them assist online learning without causing an outrage? Show them the learning data that proves how well it works.
If you’re considering adopting a LMS (or you’re in the process of implementing one), you’re going to need to formulate a business case for the learning technology. One of the easiest way to do this is explore the cost differences between LMS learning, and your current method of learning, whether it’s face-to-face, webinar training, or through a proprietary LMS.
Shopping for an LMS is not easy. With over 600 options on the market, and so little time—how can you be sure that the product you’re allocating budget to will have everything you need? If only there was some sort of criteria… We have over 20 years of experience in training and learning, so we can shed some light on what to look for when shopping for an LMS that’s a right fit for your organization.
Measuring the value to an organization is a complex, but important component of any training course or program. At the very base, training should have a purpose — To inform, to teach, to improve, and to teach. Introducing evaluation and tying it to performance will identify if learning has occured during and after training, and if job performance improvements have been realized. Measuring improvements in job performance will also provide valuable data for measuring the cost-benefits to the organization.
Last week we published an article on the Hidden Costs of an Open Source LMS - we covered services and extended features, including LMS Support, LMS Training, Setup & Configuration, Ongoing Support, LMS Reporting, and LMS Theming. This is Part 2.
