Buying an LMS? Here are 6 Things You Should Keep in Mind [Slideshare]
Planning to buy an LMS for your training, but wondering how to go about selecting the right LMS for your organization? Here are six factors that you need to keep in mind when purchasing a new LMS.
Buying a Learning Management System (LMS) is not like walking into a store and picking up the best looking one. On one hand, there are LMSs with a lot of unnecessary features to ogle at; on the other, there are LMSs specifically designed to perform certain functions. The question is, which LMS should you go for? This SlideShare introduces you to six considerations that you need to be mindful of, before buying an LMS.
There are several vendors out there, as there are several LMSs to choose from.
So, where’s the catch? Let me put it this way. If you want French fries, you won’t be buying carrots, would you? The same principle applies to choosing an LMS. Your LMS users and the functions that you would need the LMS to perform will determine your choice of LMS. If you need an LMS for eCommerce, going for one with tracking and reporting features for learners will not be of as much use, as one that comes with in-built billing features.
Therefore, before you begin shopping for the right LMS, you need to determine which one for you is the ‘Right LMS’. And here’s a checklist of what to look for to select the right LMS for your organizational training.
