With one more Brandon Hall Award for Social Learning‚ several new client wins‚ and a new version release‚ UpsideLMS‚ our Learning Management System‚ is truly on a roll! This recent award from Brandon Hall takes the cumulative tally of Brandon Hall awards to 9 in last three years - the most by any LMS in the world. I’m tempted to say UpsideLMS is not just a Best Value LMS but probably the Best LMS around today.

On 22nd March‚ we will be delivering a webinar with the folks at Brandon Hall Group‚ focusing on learner driven Learning Management Systems. In this first webinar from the entire series of webinars that we’ve planned for this year‚ we’d focus on creating a truly usable LMS system - one that is not only user-friendly but is personalized to an organization’s values and cultural preferences. You can register below for this webinar.

In April‚ UpsideLMS latest version will be up on display and demo at the CIPD HRD show in London.

The March issue of UL Buzz features a case studies on how UpsideLMS is helping some of the top names in aviation and training‚ and provides 8 crucial tips for LMS implementation in ‘View to Learn’.
 
 
Happy reading and until next issue‚ stay updated‚ stay savvy.

The Future For Flash

As developers and consumers of eLearning content‚ we are well aware of the importance of Flash in eLearning. Today a lot of eLearning content is being designed and developed using Flash‚ and that will continue in the foreseeable future too. But the Flash Plugin roadmap released a while back may change this game completely.

While Gaming and Video will continue to have Adobe’s support‚ most of the mobile browsers will be left to bite the dust. The question then remains - where are we going with Flash? We try to find the answer to this pertinent question in our blog post.

8 Tips For LMS Implementation

This presentation though a tad old‚ is just as pertinent today.
 
  Case Study

Managing Multiple Customers From The Same LMS

It’s a well known fact that one of the major requirements of any training company is the ability to manage multiple clients. As one of the leading providers of a world renowned Learning Management System ourselves‚ we understand this fact too well. This is why UpsideLMS has been equipped with a 3-tier (multi-portal/ multi-tenant) architecture that allows companies to host and manage multiple clients from the same setup.

This case discusses a similar situation where a leading training provider in Australia‚ People In Progress (PIP)‚ wanted a single platform to manage its clients. UpsideLMS not only catered to PIP’s requirement of multi-portality‚ but it also enabled its end customer to manage training for its learners.

State Of The LMS 2012

Here’s a survey on learning platforms and specifically learning management systems by Craig Weiss. He finds that while too many vendors are focusing on talent/performance management as the next feature/component in their systems‚ there is a huge base of people who do not want any TM/PM functionality. And this is just one disconnect.
