AMVONET today released “A Guide to Selecting a Learning Content Management Solution,” a free resource for K-12 school systems, colleges, universities, health care organizations and companies looking for the best eLearning solutions.
Alliance, OH, April 16, 2013 – Academic leaders, health care executives and business trainers can get fresh insights and tips with “A Guide to Selecting a Learning Content Management Solution,” released today by AMVONET.
The free guide is available for download here: http://www.amvonet.com/resource-center/lcms-guide/
AMVONET, which offers eLearning management, collaboration and authoring software, created the resource to help schools, healthcare organizations and companies determine how to choose the right Learning Content Management System (LCMS) for their eLearning needs.
The guide, which provides clarity and direction about what to look for in a LCMS, delineates:
- Essential features of a LCMS
- Differences between a LCMS and a Learning Management System (LMS)
- Key factors that should be considered when evaluating a LCMS vendor
- Industry trends
“A LCMS must be well-suited to academic, health care and corporate training goals that can vary depending on the learner population,” says Vadim Eelen, President & CEO of AMVONET. Eelen notes that the most advanced asynchronous training technologies can lower training costs and improve productivity without jeopardizing quality.
In fact, the guide lists numerous features to expect from a LCMS, such as:
- Built-in Authoring – number and types of tools that can be used
- Synchronous (live classroom) or asynchronous collaboration
- Interoperability – support range of learning objects, third party tools, Student Information System (SIS) and HR management systems
“A Guide to Selecting a Learning Content Management Solution” points out that vendor experience should be carefully reviewed given that some companies — having entered this rapidly evolving industry recently – don’t have long track records. Recommended vendor questions outlined in the guide include:
- Will the LCMS already include a synchronous software component for a live classroom experience to avoid the delays and extra programming expenses tied to manual integration of third party tools like GoToMeeting or WebEx?
- Does the system allow for interactive content, including live tests or next step instructions that can be embedded within recorded instruction, such as a video?
AMVONET’S new guide is an invaluable resource that schools, organizations and companies can reference while weighing the best options for a LCMS that can support their eLearning goals.
