Learning Management Suite (LMS)

These are tools for managing, creating, scheduling training or learning in your organization. The terminology varies from vendor to vendor. Learning management systems (LMS) typically help to manage both classroom and on-line learning. They do not normally include content creation or management tools but may in some cases. Some LMSs may manage just classroom or just e-learning rather than both. Some LMSs may also include content authoring and managment and virtual classrooms. Learning content management systems (LCMS) emphasize the management of content for courses/training/learning. In most cases, they include content authoring tools. In some cases, they may also include some of the features of LMSs. Content authoring tools are often provided as part of an LCMS. They may also be stand-alone products. Virtual classrooms (web conferencing tools) normally are separate third party offerings but may be included as part of a suite of tools. Suites of tools include features of at least two or more of the above categories. While some companies offer just LMS or LCMS systems others offer suites of products, which provide all or most of the features of the other tools. Suites combine several capabilities of learning management--usually two or more of the following: learning management, classroom training management, e-learning management, custom content creation, learning content management, learning object repositories, or virtual classrooms.

Negotiating the Best Software Deal


TechnologyEvaluation.COM analysts have separated the software negotiation process into three discrete categories. All three are critical individually, yet should always be pursued within the context of the larger discussion.

negotiation training  the most basic software negotiation tip is to treat the process as a combined system rather than a discrete set of individual point negotiations. In other words, do not walk into the negotiation without a plan. Rather, the lead negotiator must have a definitive structure in mind that encompasses all three components of a software negotiation - product pricing, product maintenance and vendor service and support. All negotiations should be conducted from two different but related perspectives - an absolute Read More
