Social Learning Technologies and LMSs

May 13, 2008

My personal goal at Brandon Hall Research is to provide information people need to make good choices. Information like what learning technologies and tools to buy, how to implement them, best practices, how to develop a strategy, and the identification of trends in the industry.

I try to accomplish that through many delivery channels (KnowledgeBases, published reports, Webinars, conferences, workshops, blogs, email, Skype, Twitter, Facebook, social networks, experiments, etc.)

My newest product is about social learning technologies and LMSs.

Over the years I’ve followed LMSs as they morphed from administrative tools – learners and learning events are tracked, e-learning is served up, and reports are generated – to systems that incorporate the entire talent management life cycle (hire-to-retire) and now, for many systems, toward more integration of social learning technologies. Many do so much more than “manage learning”  it’s hardly fair to call them just an LMS.

The research I do here at Brandon Hall Research has morphed too. So, I’m pumped to launch this new product in a printable format and as a service, on an interactive website. I’m very much looking forward to having more personal communication with Brandon Hall Research library members and clients.

    Has a new label been created for these do-everything-systems? If not, perhaps you should seize this perfect opportunity to create an acronym for the systems that juggle learning management, talent management, learning content management, authoring, social learning and so on. Acronyms are always fun.
