In my previous blog, we have seen the technological requirements for developing of an eLearning course. Having a fair knowledge of the technological requirements for developing an eLearning course, we will now look into the technological requirements for delivering or producing, the eLearning course to the learners.
Accessibility: Accessibility makes sure that the technology you used in developing the eLearning course is easily accessible by all the learners. We may create an excellent simulation using the latest authoring tools, but the creative brilliance cannot be seen by the users, unless the users system contains the necessary supporting software.
Compatibility: Compatibility ensures that our solutions are compatible with the others available in the market, thus ensuring interchangeability. Certain standards are to be adhered to, so that the technology remains uniform and is within reach. This gives a way for one eLearning vendor to communicate with another eLearning vendor, without confusion.
Deployment constraints: Deployment constraints occur mainly at 2 stages.
- Large content: When the content is too large exceeding the maximum limit that it can take, making the system incapable for delivery of the course
- Media formatting issues: Courses are prepared using certain media formats. When the users do not have the required formats installed in their systems, the users will encounter problems in accessing the course.
Interoperability is basically the ability of a course to use it seamlessly across many learning management systems. The desktop environment differs from one user to another. This affects different users differently. These issues must be resolved and addressed prior to rollout. Here are some of the issues that impact the course delivery and performance at the desktop.
- Lack of proper understanding of the user’s desktop configuration.
- Browsers compatibility issues.
- Type of courses you want to interact with your LMS.
The above technological requirements make sure that the users are able to access the eLearning course, with ease and convenience, once the eLearning course is developed. Carefully consider the nature of eLearning solution and the requirements that must be met with, to accomplish your administrators, instructors and learners’ targets. This ensures the success of the eLearning course.

Report building is one of the crucial activities in any training process. It helps the training manager track the learner’s performance and training outcomes.
Earlier, this process was done manually. However, with technological advancements, this process has been automated. Now, using a learning management system (LMS), training managers can generate reports with just a click.
Technology is continuously evolving and it is no different with Learning Management Systems. According to a research published by EDUCASE Center for Analysis and Research, the average age of an LMS is eight years. It means that institutions need to replace their LMS every eight years to keep up with their current needs and demands. So, every few years, training managers or stakeholders of organizations will need to make a decision about either changing their existing LMS or modifying their current one. With so many options available, how do they decide which one is right for them? Selecting an LMS that is a “best-fit” for your organization is not an easy task.
A learning management system (LMS) is a software application which helps deliver online training as well as track users’ scores and status. It also helps training managers to generate reports and provide results to each user individually. One of such good tools to develop an LMS is Moodle.
As a training manager, you have to keep the records of your learners’ details, courses assigned to each of them, score sheets, grade reports, issue of certificates, details of registration and limiting access to users.
Airline industry is highly regulated in almost every function – security protocol, routine maintenance, standard operating procedures and many more.Any breach of procedures could result in costly mistakes and fatal accidents. For that, they need to be trained and well informed.
The user-friendliness of a software application can be measured by the number of steps needed to perform an activity. This is particularly true for learning management systems (LMSs) as they are used by several users and administrators. An LMS can be considered complicated if the user needs to perform 2 steps to go to the required page or do any LMS activity. We can customize the user side by creating shortcuts on the dashboard. But, what about the administrators’ activities?
In the previous post of this series, we have seen how several companies are using open-source LMSs to manage their learning activities. In this last post of the series, let us examine the Enterprise option.
A learning management system (LMS) is an software application which helps to deliver online training. With the help of it, we can deliver courses as well as track users’ status and scores.
In the second post of this series, we have seen the about the WordPress option. Here, let us see the second option i.e Moodle (open source LMS).
In the previous blog, we have seen the benefits and features of an LMS. We have also seen that organizations, depending on their size and complexity, have three LMS options before them. Among them, the first option is Word Press. Let us see about it, in detail.
