Microsoft Teams wird zur Lernplattform

Microsoft kündigt an, dass man zukünftig Online-Kurse auch direkt über MS Teams suchen und starten kann. In jedem Fall Online-Kurse der  eigenen Plattformen LinkedIn Learning und Microsoft Learn. Aber auch Drittanbieter und die Kunden selbst sollen Kurse auf Teams veröffentlichen können. Das sind die wichtigsten Informationen. Es gibt dann noch das Kleingedruckte: eine App, Badges und für Teamleads die Möglichkeit, den Aktivitäten einzelnen Lernenden zu folgen und Feedback zu geben.

Meine zwei Cent: Es ist eine Ankündigung. Microsoft trumpft natürlich mit der Integration der eigenen Dienste, der populären Kollaborations- und Lernplattformen. Viele klassische Lernplattform-Anbieter werden anmerken, dass sie viel mehr (oder weniger, je nach Perspektive) können.  Überhaupt Arbeiten & Lernen: Da ich hier mehr eine Haltung und eine Kultur sehe, zahlt eine solche Ankündigung aus meiner Sicht nur bedingt darauf ein. 

„Die Previewversion der App soll in den nächsten Monaten starten“, heißt es auf golem.de. Und: „Die Ankündigung ist Teil einer größeren Initiative von Microsoft, um Menschen eine Neuorientierung in der Karriere zu geben.“

5 Tips to Launch a Successful Online Training Program

LMS

Many people are turning away from traditional learning and opting for online courses as their source of knowledge. However, there are plenty of online courses out there you haven’t thought of. Offering your students the best online learning environment through a professional learning management system leads to run online training programs in one go. Read on-

1. It Takes Lot of Efforts

Being passionate about teaching is not enough. Running a successful business needs business skills too. It would help if you emphasized training people more than promoting yourself. In such cases, going online for systematic business help you reach students.

2. Enhance Your Value

Speak about your business! Boost your business reach through the beautifully designed website, expand it on social media portals, and explore ads. Also, study the market you are in, not only in industrial training, but also in your training type, language, and the region. It is significant to approach prospective customers directly.

3. Fill Important Niches

If you know where your competitors lack, you can run your business even if it is new. Research your niche and work accordingly. Going with custom LMS software solutions that allow you to monitor your business from your comfort level would help you meet your business goals if you need professional help.

4. Understand Your Clients

A business needs clients for its recognition. Having direct communication with your clients provides a lot of insights to your business needs, helping you to improvise better. It is catering fruitfully to those things that will differ your offerings and regulate your future growth.

5. Be Cognizant of Next Stage of Growth

You might be new to the competitive world, but as your company matures, your business will inevitably grow. Your target as the founder is to prepare your company for the next stage of its growth. If you have a team out of your home today, you’ll need to rent your first office space and hire more people.

Growth

In simple terms, measure everything, including custom LMS Software, and take advantage of training features that develop engagement (things like, interactivity, gamification, micro-learning, etc.)

Corporate Learning In The Crisis: Microsoft Teams Coming On Strong

Im Artikel finden sich: Aktuelle Stichworte (Corona, LXPs, Learning in the Flow of Work), Hinweise auf Angebote der Josh Bersin Academy und dann das, was auch die Überschrift andeutet: eine tiefe Verbeugung vor Microsoft Teams. Das liest sich zum Beispiel so:

„Let me talk about Microsoft Teams as a platform. All evidence shows that Microsoft Teams may be one of the most successful products ever built. Not because it’s the first corporate messaging platform (Microsoft has had Skype for years, and products like Slack, Webex, and Workplace are huge), but because it’s perhaps the most “corporate” of all.“

Wenn also Teams mehr und mehr zum Mittelpunkt unserer Arbeits- und Kollaborationsprozesse wird, dann will man hier auch, so Josh Bersin, nach Informationen und Lernressourcen suchen. Und nicht in der Lernplattform nebenan. Auch nicht, wenn sie Learning Experience-Plattform heißt. Das leuchtet ein. Und macht aus Unternehmensperspektive auch Sinn. Aber mit etwas Fantasie werden neben Teams auch in Zukunft die vielen Plattformen und Apps stehen, die wir in Projekten mit externen Partnern und Agenturen, in Netzwerken und in privaten Gruppen nutzen. Von daher würde ich heute bei der Entwicklung meines Corporate Learning noch nicht alles auf die Karte „Schnittstelle zu/ Integration in Teams“ setzen.

What will be the right LMS for us ?

hi

I need help selecting the right LMS for our company.

i have written the main features :

1. The students must have multi language support for the user interface. At least for all Europe languages.
2. Can connect to virtual machine on other cloud like aws or google cloud. For example to enable a link to a lab. It has to be real connection and not just as hyperlink, so I can track which student has done the lab (and better to know if he was success). Every student will get different virtual machine and wont affect the other users.
3. Good security for the content. Keep the content safe
4. Good support for the student by the platform
5. the LMS can be configured that every student will have different course path. And he will be able to enroll only to those courses.
6. Allow to revoke premission to attend the course at a certain period of time. If I would like to sell license with time limit
7. Allow individual reports for users and for each group separately.
8. Report bouton that will enable the user to report a mistake or invalid slide. A popup window will enable the user to report a problem and write what is the problem with this content.
9. “Didn’t understand” bouton will enable the user to ask for help on this specific slide he will write what he didn’t understand and an agent will contact him later to explain.
10. A forum for students to ask questions and get answers from teachers and students.

any advice will help me to understand the right system for us.

eLogic LMS

Hi,

Is anyone publishing in Captivate and posting into eLogic LMS? I am having difficulty collecting data from my courses and it has been brought to my attention that the courses with the most issues are developed in Captivate. The vendor is suggesting that if I rebuilt the courses in Storyline, they would work better.

Does anyone else use eLogic? Do you have any publishing tricks? I’ve been led to believe there may be some flash in the final exported file causing the issue.

Thanks.

Cornerstone Acquires Saba: A Market Leader Acquires A Pioneer

Josh Bersin spricht von einer „consolidation of the enterprise learning management systems market“. Und die nackten Zahlen dieser Übernahme – Umsatz, Kunden usw. – sind schon beeindruckend. Deshalb hebt er hervor: „All large companies need learning management systems.“ Compliance usw., wir erinnern uns. Aber zugleich: „… the LMS market has been under attack by fast-growing new LXP vendors“. Den Rest des langen Artikels skizziert er die jüngste Geschichte beider Unternehmen, wägt das Für und Wider des Deals ab, um mit einem positiven Ausblick (aus Sicht von Cornerstone) zu schließen. Fürs Protokoll.

Fosway Group 9-Grid – Bericht für Learning Systeme

Die Personalmanagement-Analysten von Fosway haben kürzlich zwei Marktberichte veröffentlicht: einen über die Anbieter von Learning Systems (dessen Titel habe ich für diesen Beitrag übernommen) und einen weiteren über die Anbieter von Digital Learning. Neben der Übersicht (Grid) enthalten beide Berichte noch eine kurze Einschätzung des jeweiligen europäischen Marktes. So schreiben die Autoren zum Beispiel mit Blick auf die jüngsten Plattform-Entwicklungen, dass sie sich nicht auf die Unterscheidung von LMS (Learning Management Systems), NGLE (Next Gen Learning Environments) und LXP (Learning Experience Platforms) einlassen möchten, sondern stattdessen lieber von Learning System Suites und Learning System Specialists sprechen wollen. Okay.

What Percent of LMS Content is Built Outside of LMS

This might be an odd question, but I am starting process to evaluate LMSs for my company (1000+ employees) and one thing that crossed my mind is how much of the course content people put in their LMS is built with tools like Captivate or video editors, and how much is built in the LMS using their tools? My company doesn’t have much history to pull from.
